Although my partner and I have visited Barbados before, this was our first time self-catering. We opted for this since we would be travelling with our 21 month old son and my partners parents, and th… More
Well thank you for that wonderful review and these guests totally understood what Pollards Mill is all about and what we are achieving here. We thoroughly enjoyed having them to stay and it seemed that we were able to cater for all three generations. It was lovely to have a small child here enjoying the delights of the pool and the grounds. As I have said many times Pollards Mill is a perfect place for children and it has certainly been my oasis since I came to live here over 5 years ago. Thank you to Janie, Keith, Lucy, Jack and of course little Sebble and I do hope to see you all again soon.

Having you and your elderly parents to stay was a lovely experience and that I was able to give you a memorable and relaxing holiday whilst helping your parents was great.

I know to that your father enjoyed walking the grounds and taking photographs. I shall very much look forward to meeting you again.
