  • Visited last week while in Barbados and it was definitely a highlight of our trip. Beautiful grounds!! We so enjoyed meeting and talking to Simon who is one of the owners. The short movie is a must watch. So very interesting!!
  • St. Nicholas Abbey is a gorgeous plantation. We had a great time walking down the pathways, seeing the old house, and learning about the history of Barbados' economic discovery. The rum is the best. Small but beautiful with real sense of history. On the day we were there the lady who took the admission fee also provided a really interesting and lively tour. A very enjoyable couple of hours spent on this beautiful estate towards the north of the Island. A warm welcome from the owners and very friendly service and food from the ladies in the cafe. They will prepare lunch while you look around. It is the family home, so access to the house is limited, but plenty more to see, including a film from old cine footage, the distillery and gardens. The owner is very keen to chat to visitors and answer any questions. Included in the price was a rum punch and a rum tasting. This was a great tour and we really enjoyed it. My favorite part was watching the video about the stable and how they made the wheels for the carriage while sitting in the very stable that was in the video. There was rum tasting and an enjoyable tour of the grounds where you saw items that were used years ago by early barbadians. You were also able to see how the rum is made from the crushing of cane ( only during crop season) to the distillery where the rum was made.This is a must go tour once in the north you will not regret it!
  • Beautiful place, be sure to go early to be able to know all the place. Good parking lot.
  • Great rum. Half price refiĺls. Educational tour.
  • Wonderful place. Loved it . However, at the moment I am upset that my favourite bottle is now empty. I need to speak to my travel agent soon.
