Overview

Oughtersons Cottage 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.

A bit of paradise in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We cannot compliment Peter enough on his

beautiful place and his incredible hospitality. Our little hideaway was the cottage, which was very individual and cosy with two lovely shady verandas and a double open air shower.

The cottage is surrounded by lovely lush vegetation and overlooks the orchard one side and pool the other, and surrounded by wildlife - fireflies, humming birds, monkeys, lizards.

We were welcomed as friends to Peters house and joined him for supper under the fairy lit gazebo, a bonfire soirée with friends, many jamming sessions, and a great party with a bluegrass Boston band that was staying at the house.

You may think this might have been a noisy stay, but in fact the place also has an amazing peaceful atmosphere, and despite the busy few days, sound really didn't travel very far and peace and quiet could be found in so many places. The hammocks, the monkey shack in the orchard, the swing bed. The list is endless

Highlights were:

Peter's kindness, generosity

and hospitality;

The lovely cool coral rock pool with lots of ledges for wallowing in the shallows

A shallow children's pool for more wallowing in the shallows,

The midnight dips with bats swooping for a drink,

The romantic outside shower under the full moon and stars

The bikes and loan of snorkels

The amazing trip up the west coast with Peter and the other guests

The other guests who were cool as'

We recommend to visit:

Bath and Bathsheba beaches, stunning but a bit seaweedy.

Crane beach with shady bar at far end

Speightstown is charming

All the beaches on West coast are beautiful but we particularly liked Fitts Village and North of Speightstown.

South Coast Miami beach.

The old derelict ruins of Sam Lords Castle and stunning beach. Take a picnic and relax in the shade !

Huntes garden is an amazing experience especially if you get to meet Mr Hunte himself.

Take a picnic !

Other extras -

The 7 lovely dogs; Woofer, Meg, Gwen, Lad, Smoke, Louden and our favourite Wag who followed us around everywhere and Meg's 7 gorgeous pups that were born during our stay.

The very welcome shop that Peter did for us before we arrived.

The use of a guitar

The vine covered Pilates / Yoga Barn.

Classes every Tuesday if you want to join

All three villas have been beautifully decorated with a very understated beach feel.

We cannot recommend this property

enough and will definitely be back.

Go and stay. A little bit of paradise in the sun
