Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Folkstone, Barbados, Your Home Away from Home

With the Caribbean Sea in front, and close by to a marine park, a holiday in Folkstone, Barbados, is ideal for those people wanting a taste of paradise. There are many accommodation options to choose from if you are considering a stay, but perhaps the best, is by booking a holiday rental villa in Folkstone. Well-equipped and maintained, it will have everything that you need to feel right at home, and to make your stay a comfortable and relaxing one. Self catering accommodation in Folkstone gives you the chance to enjoy life in the Caribbean at your own pace – Something the locals are very proud of!

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.

Best vacation spot ever!

5 of 5
We are on our way home from Barbados and are so sad to be leaving! Ridgecot House was absolutely perfect. From the initial booking, Tina was amazing to deal with. She was prompt with her responses, offered to arrange travel arrangements on the island (we hired a car- definitely recommend if you want to do some exploring) and even arranged to have groceries waiting for us when we arrived. The property itself was even more wonderful than the photos. Esther was so friendly and kept the place spotless. Then, of course, there is the BEACH. We spent every day at the amazing beach, which is right across the street. Beautiful crystal clear blue waters were just what we needed after a long winter. There are lots of great restaurant options in the area (JuJu's and Lonestar are an easy walk on the beach, the Tides and the Beach House are a mile away in Holetown...and THE CLIFF! Expensive, but worth the splurge!). We also spend a couple nights relaxing on the wonderful patio (takeout from Just Grillin) and enjoying the pool. Already talking about when we can go back!

Lovely Villa, clean and comfortable, well equiped with the added bonus of the large pool.

Thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Golden Palm Villa. A lovely, relaxing retreat away from the busy tourist areas but easily within 10 to 20 minutes drive of all the major attractions on the island. The Villa has the added advantage of a welcoming pool; a great place to escape the heat. A car is essential.
