About Bayfield House

This plantation-style house offers the very best of English hospitality in a lovely tropical setting. Trevor and Pam Ramsay, an English/Barbadian couple, have converted their home into a superb, upmarket guesthouse. The ten en-suite bedrooms, spread over the ground and first floors, are thoroughly tasteful and comfortable, with attractive beds and armchairs, good lighting and modern shower rooms. Most open on to the house’s lovely jalousie-shuttered, wrap-around verandahs, which have comfy chairs in which to sit and relax. Guests also have the use of a good-sized, oval swimming pool.

Meals are served on a terrace overlooking the pool and the manicured gardens. Around breakfast time, a family of green monkeys often wander by to see what’s going on. The breakfasts are of an exceptionally high standard, and include beautifully presented platters of tropical fruit, and hot dishes such as omelettes, scrambled eggs and pancakes cooked by Trevor to perfection.

Bayfield offers delicious three-course dinners twice each week, which gives guests the opportunity to try other places to eat, which Trevor will be delighted to recommend. The Ramsays know Barbados really well – Pam can trace her ancestry back to 1654! – and Trevor has managed many leading hotels on the island before coming to Bayfield. The help and advice that they offer our guests – even booking restaurant tables for you – is a feature of the Bayfield hospitality.

Bayfield House is situated just inland from the west coast on a quiet residential lane. Many guests rent a car to get the most out of the island, but it’s just four minutes’ walk to Mullins, one of the best beaches on the west coast, where you can rent sun loungers and there are a few little kiosks offering drinks and snacks.

Given the quality of the accommodation, the great service and the excellent location in a very smart part of the island, Bayfield House is really good value place to stay, and we recommend it with great confidence.
