Pastel pink, country house-style sleep set along the beach on Barbados’ west coast
Tropical English elegance. Hummingbirds flit around the palms and bougainvillea at the entrance to this pretty pink and white Caribbean sleep. The decor of the ground floor sitting room in the main house is akin to what you might find in a friend’s country house, with comfy blue and white patterned sofas where guests can sit and play chess or curl up with a good book. Attentive service from staffers (many of whom have been at Cobblers Cove for over 25 years) adds to the homey vibe.
Bed and Bath
The 40 suites, scattered around the three acres of grounds, are full of homespun charm. Cobblers Garden Suites and Ocean View Suites feel like little apartments, with terraces leading to whitewalled lounges filled with rattan furniture (including a sofabed, ideal for families), a counter for preparing tea and coffee, and a simple bedroom at the back with a kingsize bed. Oceanfront Suites have a similar layout but get more sunlight and are a coconut’s throw from the beach. The two top suites, Colleton at the Great House and Camelot at the Great House, lie in the main house and include four-poster beds, rooftop plunge pools and chic interiors (think writing desks and chaise longues) by Prue Lane Fox.
Cross the palm-lined lawns to reach the freshwater oceanfront pool, tennis court and sweet little spa, which features a full range of treatments with Pevonia products. Free afternoon tea is served between 4 and 5 p.m., and guests gather at the intimate cocktail bar for sundowners and free canapés before hitting Camelot Restaurant at Cobblers Cove — you can join local fisherman Barker on an early morning boat trip to catch your own supper. A daily 15-minute waterskiing session included in the room price works off the excess pounds.
How to Get There
Cobblers Cove never disappoints - from the welcome back through to the cheerful rally of all staff to ensure an uninterrupted experience of top drawer service amidst a surprise storm! The beauty and cleanliness of this charming resort is a tribute to its caring staff. The food was spectacular in taste, presentation and profile of local ingredients. An early morning swim in the Caribbean Sea was the perfect way to start each day. We can’t wait to plan our next visit, a tradition we’ve enjoyed for over a decade!
We have been lucky enough to visit Cobblers a couple of times now and we love it. The suites whether situated with an ocean view or overlooking the garden are lovely. The food delicious. Service and cleanliness can't fault. Staff very friendly and helpful. Feels like home from home.
Stayed for one week. Never been to Barbados before and would definitely go again and stay again at Cobblers Cove. I really couldn't fault it. Beautiful with excellent service whilst at the same time having a relaxed atmosphere.
Very good food and excellent water sports.
