THE BARN VILLA

Oughtersons Barn Rental Photos and Description

Oughterson House Plantation is a unique vacation getaway. Located on high groun

Three separate and distinct villas dot the Plantation House grounds which is now a tropical garden.

Each villa offers its own flavor of private, family-style living with open floorplans and full kitchens surrounded by a horticulturalist’s paradise – organic gardens, fruit trees, flowers, birds and even the plantation monkeys. The Barn sits beside the coral swimming pool. The View sits overlooking the Atlantic over the foreground of cane fields. The Cottage is nestled in the branches of banana and mango orchards. Your British host has transformed a former Zoo into a botanical haven complete with fruiting trees, organic gardens and flowering vegetation everywhere. Open floor plans offer a unique connection with the ocean breezes and the natural settings. Far from the madding crowd, you will find respite in a local charming culture and a quiet countryside pace. This is the Barbados that few get to see.

Details for The Barn Villa 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5

http://www.oughtersonvillas.com The Barn Villa is set within the grounds of the Oughterson Plantation Great House and was originally the stable for the mules that transported the sugar cane form the fields (or cane gardens) to the mill on the estate. More recently it is a conversion of ‘the Old Zoo’ stables. The spacious open floor-plan overlooks a coral stone pool with waterfalls and attached shallow pool for children. The design centers on the kitchen and conversation radiates outwards on the tropic breeze through the dining area, living area and out to the pool.The floor plan is necessarily oriented to the trade breezes which cools all in its path. Your host, Peter Milne, further designed and build the Villas with the idea that the kitchen was central to the Oughterson Villa experience. As Peter states, “It all flows from the kitchen, with a large prep-bar and serving area to entertain guests while cooking. http://www.oughtersonvillas.com

Lovely Pool, relaxing, interesting location

  • 4 of 5
3 of us had a lovely week at Oughterson Barn. Its next door to the old Plantation house that Peter [ex UK] lives in. He was so helpful buying in food for our arrival, treating us to dinner on our first night, inviting us to a quiz night in Bridgetown and lending us snorkling bits [to swim with the turtles and see the reef fishes] etc.
The pool is lovely: you can sit by it and watch tiny hummingbirds going for flower to flower. Cooking facilities and WiFi are good too.
We used the local buses to travel everywhere and would really recommend them [80p that's 2 Barbados Dollar for any journey] Timetables on the website of ask the locals who work for Peter, but get the College Savannah or Society buses to and from Bridgetown. The Oistins-GA airport-Society bus is very useful too and runs closeby. The Barn is located about 2-3 miles from beaches, so in the heat its too far to walk, which limits you a bit. Try Carlsle Bay near Bridgetown, Sandy lane, Miami Beach near Oistins, Bath Beach in Consett Bay on west coast - all by bus!!!
The weather can change quickly - we had a few short sharp showers- but you can see the clouds coming in anyway.
Always felt safe travelling around - there are so many beaches and site to visit.
Can really recommend Peters 3 villas. Not so keen on all the dogs he has though, as not really dog lovers! JS

Owner's Response: I was very impressed that this family used the buses effectiviely throughout their holiday.
There are 2 bus routes serving Oughterson, however most renters opt to hire a car to see the island.
All things are possible to them that believe!
I do make it clear from the first enquiry that the place comes with a bunch of dogs,
as is fitting for the countryside location.
It is best enjoyed by folk who are happy to share their holiday with the pups, mutts and one grand old girl dog.

A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE YOU WILL NEVER FORGET

  • 5 of 5
MY FAMILY AND I HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM ONE OF THE BEST HOLIDAYS WE HAVE HAD TOGETHER.

THIS IS DUE IN NO SMALL PART TO PETER, YOUR HOST AT OUGHTERSON PLANTATION VILLAS, WHO HAS PERFECTLY BALANCED A WELCOMING, GENEROUS AND ATTENTIVE NATURE WITHOUT BEING INTRUSIVE. HE IS WITHOUT QUESTION, THE MOST INVITING HOST WE HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF STAYING WITH. THERE ARE JUST TWO OTHER VILLAS (YET ALL THREE ARE INCOMPARABLE) AT OUGHTERSON, AND THE FEELING OF STAYING IN A UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT WITH A TINY COMMUNITY OF OTHERS WITH SAME MIND AND SPIRIT, NEVER FEELS CROWDED AND OVERRUN LIKE OTHER VACATION SPOTS CAN. IT FEELS EXACTLY AS THOUGH YOU ARE STAYING WITH FRIENDS..AND AS IT TURNS OUT YOU ARE.

OUGHTERSON IS UNIQUE AND SPECIAL. IT IS LOCATED ON THE EASTERN PART OF BARBADOS IN ST. PHILIP, ONE OF THE MOST UNSPOILT AREAS LEFT ON THE ISLAND. THE PROPERTY IS QUITE SIMPLY, STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL AND A DESTINATION IN ITSELF. I CAN SAY WITH COMPLETE CONFIDENCE THAT NO MATTER WHERE IN THE WORLD YOU TRAVEL, YOU WILL NEVER FIND ANOTHER LOCATION LIKE THIS ONE.

WHEN ONE TRAVELS TO PARADISE, EXPLORATION IS NOT ONLY AN OPTION BUT TO ME, A GIVEN. BUT WHAT BETTER COMPLIMENT CAN ONE GIVE THAN TO SAY THAT THERE WERE TIMES WHEN WE SIMPLY DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE. WE HAVE FOUND AN IDYLLIC PARADISE IN AN IDYLLIC PARADISE. I AM SURE YOU WILL FEEL THE SAME.

AT OUGHTERSON, YOU WILL NOT FIND A RUN OF THE MILL HOTEL, WITH A DISENCHANTED PERSON WORKING A GENERIC FRONT DESK THAT COULD BE ANYWHERE. YOU WILL FIND PEACE AND QUIET, FRIENDSHIP AND THAT EVER IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING A 'ROOM NUMBER' OR AN INDIVIDUAL. ALL THIS IN A SPOT THAT FEELS A MILLION MILES AWAY FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD.

SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO STAY AT OUGHTERSON, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. NOT MUCH COULD PLEASE ME MORE THAT HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO RELIVE IT FOR EVEN A MOMENT.

THANK YOU A THOUSAND TIMES FROM DOMINIC, GENIA & GIADA AND TOM & SUE.

A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We cannot compliment Peter enough on his beautiful place. Our little hideaway was beach house meets garden oasis with a good dollop of thoughtful layout and design detail thrown in for good measure.

Highlights were:

The views of the sea, the sound of the wind and the stars at night.

The peace and quiet and the feeling that you were the only people in the whole world staying there

Peter's kindness, generosity and hospitality;

The lovely cool rock pool with children's paddle pool;

The attention to detail in the individual design of each of the 3 accommodations available

the diverse wildlife - fireflies glowing at night, birds, monkeys, lizards

the beds - not too hard not too soft, just right

The extras - a bonfire one evening, a welcome dinner under the vine covered gazebo lit with fairy lights, a night the night bbq down at a beautiful windswept beach with Peter and the other guests staying at Oughtersons, the pooches for the children to play with, jamming sessions in the main house, the use of a guitar to play all the old classics, the offer to pick up some groceries before we arrived, the hammocks and vine covered Pilates area. The list goes on.............

We also enjoyed the proximity to Crane and Foul beaches.

We cannot recommend this property enough and would definitely send our family and friends.

We would love to return, and as we drove off (btw, you'll need a car), and before we'd even gone out the drive and onto the road, the children said "When are we coming back ?" ...........

Go and stay. You'll be so glad you did :-)

Ps Give our love to the pooches and tell Peter we recommended it to you :-).

Unusual unspoilt hideaway

  • 5 of 5
We actually stayed in the Cottage and Barn in Jan 2005, and still have very fond memories of the place. Our party ranged from 16months to 70+ and all enjoyed it. We loved the friendly dogs and the visiting monkeys, and lying in the hammock watching the wildlife through gently swaying palm fronds was heaven! Pool is small but as pretty as it looks in the picture, children's pool good for toddlers. Cottages clean and well-kept, and the owners were lovely, very welcoming.
It's not for those who want a beach resort, night life and air conditioning, but would thoroughly recommend it for getting away from it all and enjoying nature in a beautiful setting.
