"A wonderful restful location, with excellent accommodation , take some beating"
A real gem of a find if you want peace and traquility. If you want razamatazz and night life stay on the west coast. Discover with your hire car the spectacular scenery of the real Barbados and the Ea… More
This is a wonderful review and truly represents what Plantation View and Pollards Mill is all about! These guests truly embraced the tranquility and privacy of my property. They also utilised fully the many god restaurants close by and found a craft event taking place at The Crane on Wednesday evenings. The Crane has 4 restaurants all giving different dining experiences so somewhere close by to eat casually or more elegantly! I hope people will be encouraged to come and visit us all at beautiful Pollards Mill.

"What a Gem!!!"
Pollards Mill is the perfect get away and is truly idyllic. We went for our belated honeymoon and it was just what the doctor ordered. After trawling the internet for somewhere to stay we found Pollar… More
Hello thank you for such a lovely review and you were delightful guests to have staying here at beautiful Pollards Mill. It warms my heart that you appreciated the true essence of what is Pollards Mill. I am so pleased that your only complaint was that one week was not enough for a visit to this great island. I will look forward very much to your return visit!

"Peaceful, secluded and beautiful."
We looked at a number of different places online, before we settled on coming to Pollards Mill for our belated Honeymoon, and we could not have chosen a better location. We were looking for somewhere … More
I was very disappointed that I was unable to meet you both especially as we had formed an email relationship over several months. Hopefully you will come back in the future.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments about Pollards Mill, which certainly warm my heart, as Pollards Mill is very very special to me and more than just a home. As you say it is very tranquil and calm and it soothes the soul.
Also I am pleased that you did a lot of exploration and found other areas to be very accessible from Pollards Mill.
You must be people after my own heart as The Round House is one of my favourite locations on the island, the views are so spectacular and it reminds me very much of North Cornwall.
Many thanks again for the comments, which are a very true reflection of life at Pollards Mill!!

Thank you for the review and the good things you say about Plantation View and Pollards Mill.
In response to the bad points, loo rolls are always placed in the accommodations and somehow this must have been overlooked apologies for this had I been asked I would have given a couple of loo rolls immediately!! A cold beer noted this is a good idea!. Noted about the crockery and this is something that we must keep an eye on obviously when the place is not used for a week or two the humidity causes problems. Everything is thoroughly cleaned before guests arrive so I am at a loss for these comments. The villa was only completed 2 years ago and everything was brand new at that time. Not a lot we can do about the birds nests they had been cleared out so obviously returned!! Very few pools in Barbados are heated, in the sumer it is like a sauna. The handrail has been repaired it was work in progress!
Instructions have been placed in the villa which include areas of interest to visit. There are also plenty of leaflets of attractions on the island.
Noted about the fridge and no cooker this is going to be addressed. The fridge will be replaced with a better freezer compartment.
As far as the weddings are concerned this was sprung on me on the day of the wedding and I had not had to ask people to leave the pool area before, this was just very unfortunate. I am having the pool screened so that guests can enjoy the pool even if a wedding is taking place.
As far as the dogs are concerned Guinness no longer lives here as I had realised he was proving to be a liability.
There is good nightlife on the South Coast, which is only 20 -25 minutes drive and the roads to the South Coast are very reasonable as part of the journey is along the highway, which is well lit.
Thank you for bringing these points to my attention, I would like to add that I do tell my guests I am here as I live here and will respond immediately to any problems or queries they may have.

"Thank you for a lovely week"
I stayed here for a week with my 3 teenage daughters. We stayed in the 3 bed villa near the main property which is where the owner lives. Linda, the owner, is lovely. She picked us up from the airpor… More
Thank you for this very lovely review and I make it my business to welcome all the guests that come here as Pollards Mill is a very beautiful property.
In response to the comments about the fridge, this was only purchased 2 years ago and we have not had problems with the freezer part of it as it does get very cold. If I had been made aware steps would have been taken to sort this out.
One of the dogs the puppy has now been re homed so it is much more peaceful here now!!!

"Beautiful cottage in the Barbadian countryside"
If you are looking for a tranquil and beautiful country retreat, then you will love Pollards Mill. Nestled amongst beautiful countryside in the parish of St Philip, Pollards Mill is the perfect place for people who don't want to stay in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the South coast. I have stayed twice now at Plantation view, the beautifully furnished one bedroom unit at Pollards Mill, and I simply love it there. Everything you need for your stay is provided, linens, towels,a safe and a fully equipped kitchen. The downstairs is very comfortable and upstairs is too; my favourite bit is the verandah off the bedroom which provides fantastic views. Maid service is twice weekly but the maid was very friendly and always happy to come in if needed and bring clean towels etc.
Linda, the friendly owner of the property, lives in the grounds of Pollards Mill also, and will pick you up from the airport on arrival, supply basic grocery provisions for when you first arrive, and generally help out with advice on places to visit etc. Pollards Mill is in the country, and has a beautiful pool area and well maintained grounds, but I would strongly recommend hiring a car for those days when you want to venture further than the pool.
The property is only a 10-minute drive from Six Roads, where you will find a bank, post office, various stores and a large supermarket for your convenience. Pollards mill is also just 10-minute drive from quite a few stunning beaches, such as Foul Bay, Crane Beach, Bottom Bay and others, and I recommend visiting these. There are also a few great restaurants such as Cutters and Palms etc all within a ten-minute drive of Pollards Mill….just ask Linda for her recommendations.
In short, if you prefer a quiet countryside accommodation to a bustling hotel, yet want to be just a 20-minute drive from the activities of the south Coast/St Lawrence Gap area, then Pollards Mill will not disappoint!!
Thank you so much for the very positive review people who really appreciate Pollards Mill living!!
