Guest Cottage

The Guest Cottage is a charming two-bedroom house perched on a cliff-top with what must be one of the world’s great views. The front balcony is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Caribbean sea. While we do not know exactly when the cottage was built, it was in existence when Sir John Colleton acquired the estate in 1650. The British settled Barbados only 23 years earlier. Since then it has been extended and modernized for the guests of the Great House.

The front bedroom has a four-poster double bed, colonial ceiling fan and private bathroom and toilet. It opens on to a courtyard garden on one side the Caribbean sea on the other.

The second bedroom has three single beds and a fold-out settee. It has a ceiling fan, private shower and toilet facilities. A cot, playpen and high chair are available for guests with babies.

The remainder of the cottage contains an entrance foyer, toilet, dining room, separate kitchen and laundry, and a sitting room with fibre wifi and a smart TV with Netflix. There is a large balcony at the front which is used for breakfasts and evening cocktails and a private courtyard at the rear of the house.

The Guest Cottage is set in seven acres of tropical gardens and guests are free to use the pool. While it has its own kitchen, guests are welcome to come to the Colleton Great House breakfasts if they choose.

Base rate $240 per night* (minimum 6 nights)

Cottage price includes:
Access to the pool, pool towels and wifi

The cottage at Colleton Great House - our first experience of a guest house - and what a fabulous experience! Every nook, every cranny whispers stories from a bygone era. The grounds are superb with a wonderful retro swimming pool and a resident troupe of green monkeys. The west facing terrace has stunning views over the sea and is a magical place for both breakfast and “sundowners”. If you are looking for ultra modern luxury this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a unique experience in an utterly charming historic cottage surrounded by nature, book now - I suspect this secret place will not remain secret for much longer.
