    Places to Visit on Holiday to Long Bay, Barbados

    If you can tear yourself away from your gorgeous rental villa and the beach at Long Bay, it is worth taking the short walk east to Sam Lord’s Castle. Now a hotel, this beautiful Georgian mansion sits right on the shoreline of a wonderful unspoilt beach. The mansion was built in the year 1820 by the notorious buccaneer, Sam Hall Lord. The building was apparently built with ill-gotten funds from plundering ships that ran aground on the land after following lanterns that were hung on coconut trees around the mansion.

    Located in the heart of the St. Philip countryside is the only Great House that you will find on the island of Barbados, namely Sunbury Plantation House. It was built in 1660 by one of the first settlers on the island, Matthew Chapman. Visiting Sunbury Plantation House is a wonderful experience due to the fact that all of the rooms are open to the viewing public. Here you will see antique furniture, lavish Victorian decoration and a unique collection of horse-drawn carriages. There are also wonderful gardens to be explored around the house.
