Traditional, Family-Friendly House

The Yam House is situated within a scenic plantation setting and although in a rural location, there are neighbours close by providing a secure environment. One of three houses who share the communal swimming pool, the emphasis is on country living in this breezy, peaceful destination. The plantation is now a racehorse and polo pony breeding stud with paddocks for the mares and foals as well as the farmyard animals on the property. The house was built in the traditional style dating from the 1800s and has been tastefully restored by the owner in a comfortable country style, as befitting the property. The Yam House has 4 air-conditioned bedrooms, 2 en-suite bathrooms,1 family bathroom upstairs and 1 full shower room downstairs. The air-conditioned master bedroom has a 5' bed with en-suite bathroom, built-in wardrobes, wooden floor and traditional furnishings. The spacious en-suite bathroom has a bath with shower, double vanity, bidet, WC and dressing table. One twin-bedded room and one single room share the family bathroom with shower, single vanity and WC. These bedrooms have air conditioning, wooden floors, traditional furnishings and built-in wardrobes. The air-conditioned fourth bedroom has a 4'6' bed, a fitted wardrobe, wooden floor, traditional furnishings and an en-suite shower with single vanity and WC. A large living/dining leads to a covered verandah overlooking the paddocks. A fully-fitted kitchen is directly off the dining room and this leads to the laundry room with washer and dryer with a drying yard behind. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and stove. There are sun loungers on the verandah of The Yam House as well as around the pool. Satellite TV and internet are provided. There is a weekly maid service and babysitting is available by arrangement. A welcome pack can be provided if requested and airport meet and greet service if required. Reservations for hire car, restaurants, golf, fishing, etc. can be arranged. Use of local gym and tennis, with or without coaching, are close by. Polo lessons and chukkas are available within a short distance of Bromefield and can be arranged to suit. Polo is played at Holders near Holetown and at Apes Hill from November to May and there are many matches involving international visiting teams. Yoga is available at Port St Charles or in Holetown. For those yoga enthusiasts, paddle board yoga is also practised at Port St Charles during the high season between December and April. Horse-racing is in Bridgetown at the historic Garrison Savannah where you can see some of the Bromefield bred runners in action. There are walks on the doorstep through the cane fields which abut the property. In Holetown there are numerous excellent restaurants as well as shopping at The Limegrove Lifestyle Centre and many other stores in the town. The exclusive Sandy Lane Hotel is also in nearby Holetown. St Nicholas Abbey is close by along with the animal flower caves in the north of the island and Harrison's Caves in the centre of island. For children, the Wildlife Reserve is a short distance from Bromefield with the monkey feeding time a favourite. The Atlantis submarine is in Bridgetown for those wishing to have the underwater experience and the east coast is a short drive from Bromefield with the spectacular beaches on the Atlantic side of the island. For those families and friends wishing to holiday together, The Cowshed Cottage is also available for rental at Bromefield Plantation. This is property # 1902815 and is the house with the white roof in the aerial photo.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Last time in Barbados, we stayed at a beachfront property. This time we decided to try somewhere else. The Yam House was a fantastic option and very good value. The house itself is lovely with quality furnishings. The terrace is beautiful and where we ate all of our dinners. The views are lush and we spotted monkeys in the nearby field as well as humming birds...

We are a family of four, so we had plenty of room.

The shared pool is very nice and we used it when we had a bad weather day.

Thank you Mary-Ann for the start up groceries and Kerry for looking in from time to time.

Having neighbours made us feel safe, but we were also independent.

The fishpot was around 5 mins away, with a pretty little beach and Heywards next to Almond Beach, 10 mins. We sometimes picked up some local food from the back of the van parked at the roundabout there, terrific Yam and flying fish. And very good value.

Wifi worked very well, although at first we had to reset it by pushing ia pen into the hole at the back of the box.

Would definitely return as eaily as good if not better than beachfront.

We rented a car for the duration. Thanks also for meeting us at the airport to help us find the way.

Very happy with the whole holiday!

A Dream Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Both Barbados and the stay at this location went rather swimmingly! The owners made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to help us to get to now not only the immediate area but many other parts of the island. The area is very quite, peaceful and secure. The home was very tastefully decorated and lacked nothing to make a traveler feel at home. Renting a vehicle while in Barbados makes enjoying this location and the many short drives to see the sights a breeze. It is only a short drive to St. Nicholas Abby , a wonderfully restored rum distillery and to the Animal Cave's in the north (a must see) Swimming beaches are within 10 minutes and many Supermarkets are close as well.

Absolutely everything described in the listing is very accurate, and well maintained. I cannot reiterate enough how beautiful and relaxing our stay went. We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a quite country stay in Paradise. We are already planning for next years holiday and cannot wait to have the opportunity to stay there in Barbados again.
