Things to Do on Holiday in Folkstone, Barbados

Whilst swinging on a hammock or lounging around by a pool suits some people on holidays in Folkstone, there is much more to do should you so choose. The Folkstone Marine Park, with its artificial reef, is a veritable playground for water-based activities. The scuba diving here is absolutely amazing, and if you do not have your PADI licence, then you can even get one during your stay. If scuba diving isn’t your thing, then the snorkelling is as equally amazing. Other possible activities available in the area include tennis, basketball, running and cycling.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Folkestone, Barbados

Barbados is quite a small island, and exploring it is simple on either public transport or with a hire car. Certainly a drive around it is recommended, and you will discover many idyllic sandy bays and beaches this way. One of the most popular tourist attractions on the island is the Harrison’s Cave, with its huge caverns and magnificent stalactites and stalagmites. A visit to the Caribbean would not be complete without a rum tour, and if you do not already have a taste for the spirit, you may well have at the end of the tour! Finally, for something different, why not take a day out at the races? The Garrison Savannah makes for an interesting day out, and grandstand seats cost less than ten pounds.

Weather in Folkestone, Barbados

Barbados basically has two seasons – a wet season between June and November, and the dry season between December and May. A holiday in Folkstone is possible at any time of year, but is obviously better during the dry season. Temperatures during this period range between 28 and 31 degrees Celsius, and rainfall is not an issue. The temperatures are, in fact, almost the same during the wet season, but torrential rains can and do occur.

Travel to Folkestone, Barbados

Grantley Adams Airport (BGI) is located on the south of the island, and has connections with the USA as well as Europe. Travellers from the UK can catch Virgin Atlantic flights from London Gatwick (LGW) or on Thomson Airways from Birmingham (BHX). It is possible to rent a car at the airport for your holiday in Folkstone, but you may just wish to hire one locally on a day by day basis when needed.

The villa is still to the very high standard we love and expected, with some added improvements - we particularly loved the introduction of the gas barbeque, which cooked our fresh fish from the local fish market to perfection! The collection and drop off service to the airport makes arriving and leaving hassle free. Jayne the housekeeper did a fantastic job of looking after us and the villa without any intrusion. We have visited Barbados on a number of occassions so deem ourselves self sufficient but knew Floyd and Jacqueline were always on hand if we needed anything. The villa is in a perfect location for visiting the best beaches on the island, although Gibbs is still our favourite. Car hire isn't necessary as the bus stop at the bottom of the road will take you as far as Bridgetown one way and Speightstown the other. Mullins beach bar is great for lunch and only a 10 minutes walk from GGV. For a great night out with a local feel. Take a trip to Chris's Place at the top of the road (Rock Dundo) for traditional ribs and rum! GGV holds a special place in our heart so we will be returning without any hesitation. PS. Make sure you purchase the fast track option through the airport from Maria. It is worth every penny and will save your hours waiting in line to get through imigration!

The villa is only a short walk from some amazing beaches and Speightstown. The monkeys that made their daily journey across the back of the villa were amazing and even took a banana from my hand, not that I'd recommend trying that. The owner of the villa, Claire, was super quick to respond to emails, very friendly and basically a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this villa!

I've been to Barbados many times but this was my first time at Ridgecot House. I couldn't have chosen a better place and the memories will stay with me forever. From 1st sight of this gorgeous villa we had the best holiday ever. Esther greeted us at the door and we have so many happy memories of her. She became our special guest everyday and we loved to get her to sit down with us, have some lunch and tell us stories of her family and the island. We bought some food for our last evening and she cooked us a great, traditional Bajan meal. We shared some of the meal with Kevin the gardener who, like Esther, was a treasure and a lovely man. He tended the garden well and kept it lovely, even planting cuttings to keep it looking beautiful. We loved the pool and the terrace so much that we hardly left. and we also had some fun on the swing with some great pictures as forever memories The Fairmont Beach Club was an added bonus. So close and great for sunsets. The house itself is stunning and has everything you need. The bus stops outside so you can easily get to anywhere on the island I cant say enough but i will say that we are planning to come back soon. Sue, Rach and Lynn xxx
