We arrived today for Sunday lunch. The website states the restaurant is open for buffet from noon until 3:30. It was 2:00 when we arrived and the security guard refused to let us in. When we mentioned we were there to eat at the restaurant he I stated sternly that we were not allowed in! He would not even give us a reason….just kept telling us to leave. We kept driving and ate up the road at Atlantis instead. We won’t be back!

A legacy of Sugar Baron Christopher Codrington’s guilty conscience, the grounds impress as soon as you turn off the main drag, possessing what must be Barbados’ grandest building from that era, set in a tranquil enclave of St John parish, blessed with sea views. A good 0.5 hour stop on a road trip.

Great views from a well maintained historic building and gardens. You do get a pamphlet and the guy at the gate tells you about the drip stone and sundial but it would be good to have more information around the buildings especially as you now have to pay $10bbd to enter.

This is a great place to walk around for 30 minutes or so. Great picture taking opportunities. Pretty architecture and gardens/lawn area.

It’s definitely worth at least driving down the drive and taking a peek even if you don’t go in - $10B to enter and see the chapel etc. if you are into architecture or history then it’s worth it.

The grounds, the buildings and the view of the sea are beautiful, dramatic really. You should know that visitors are welcome to have lunch in the dining room. We had a delicious lunch of roast chicken, noodles with vegetables, salad, and a fruit drink for only $20 Barbados.

I loved coming to codrington college. The view is spectacular and it’s serene and quiet. It costs a small fee to enter for maintenance of the grounds. They also a little lake, trees and lots of ducks.

Such an attractive building and grounds. You can pay BDS dollars 25 to go in the house and round the grounds or BDS 5 to park, see the property from the outside, sit and picnic in the grounds, use the very clean toilets, the free wi-fi, and visit the tiny but lovely cafe and souvenir shop. A lovely peaceful break in serene surroundings.

This was the last day of our Caribbean cruise before returning home so we decided to take an island tour rather than while away our time on the ship. Codrington college is in the parish of St John's on the Atlantic coast of Barbados. The coach parked up and we were given a guide leaflet to the college.The college is a theological institution for Anglican priests but the real interest is in its history.
Originally used as a sugar plantation the magnificent limestone buildings were bequested in the early 1700's by the benefactor for the improvement of the lives of poor white and black slaves. In addition was the need to maintain moral standards and the college began as an institution to train Anglican priests to which it still has the same purpose today. The grounds leading down to the sea are immaculately maintained. At the entrance to the car park is a pond with an abundance of exotic fish. Bags of food are available to buy to feed the ducks as well as the fish. Funds appear to be dwindling and running costs need to be met so any donations are gratefully received.

Fabulous personal tour of the buildings and grounds with the very knowledgeable Rashid, book the private tour, it costs very little and is worth it for the insight and history.
Also go and say hello to Brandi in the coffee shop. Hope everything comes good Brandi...
