The first Open House of the season did the National Trust proud today. We had a lovely afternoon and look forward to visiting more Open Houses. Tyrol Cot is off the beaten tourist track but well worth a visit being the home of Sir Grantely...More

Very interesting (small) Heritage Village. Actually closed on the day we went but were told we could still walk around but there wasn't a tour available. Good insight into times gone by. Really enjoyed getting close to the chattel houses and walking amongst them.

The house was quite interesting, but has been neglected & is in much need of some TLC. Everything was covered in dust & grime & although the lady on reception was friendly & welcoming, there was no guided tour or information. The surrounding chattel village...More

Once we managed to find it we were made very welcome by Jonelle who did an excellent guided tour. As we are UK National Trust Members we had free entry but felt moved to make a donation. Rum and fruit punch was available. The total...More

Tyrol Cot is the former home of Sir Grantley Adams and his family and also houses a collection of old chattel houses. The main house has some antique furniture and mementoes from the family, but the beautiful nineteenth century house is now showing signs of...More

Once we'd managed to find Tyrol Cot (not that well signposted, even for Barbados), it was a really well spent hour or so. The building is looking a little worn down, and could use some money spent on it really. We were the only ones...More
