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
We have recently had both dinner and lunch at the hotel’s restaurant. The chef really knows his stuff and the food is tasty and well prepared. Charming staff who listen and remarkably good service as the food is only cooked after it has been ordered.
There is a risk in the Caribbean that meals are too bland and lack flavour. Neither of our two meals at this restaurant suffered from this problem. The place is justifiably popular so book.
Just back from the fantastic cobblers cove in barbados, this boutique hotel just gets better, we had a beautiful suite, which is very spacious, more like a bungalow, on arrival we are taken to our suite no hanging around to check in, they had also reserved a table in camelot restaurant, Richard who is one of the managers is the “man to go too” for advice on the hotel, restaurants, and everything you need to know, hes always around the hotel so easy to contact.
The new breakfast menu is great, i liked the : harissa toast, advocado and poached eggs, my husband dined on banana crepes most of the week, for lunch Wow try the lobster and crab with peashoots and mango scrumptious!!! Fantastic cocktail party serving laurent perrier champagne, and sunbeds no rushing for beds and brollys on wheels! So relaxing, afternoon tea is also excellent, great people staying and very interesting, lovely atmosphere, will be back later in year or early next year thank you Will and team for a lovely holiday
Let me start with a confession. This was my 10th annual stay at Cobblers and it gets better and better with each passing year. There is a sense about the place which provides a genuine sense of welcome to its guests that I have seldom seen repeated in any other high-end hotel I’ve stayed in. Perhaps this might be attributed to its comparatively small size (about 40 rooms, give or take), or the tropical garden through which guests must pass on their way to their rooms or the Great House on the beach. It does, but it’s charms don’t end there. An ongoing (out of season) programme of works has ensured that Cobblers continues to draw its many regular gueste back year after year.
Very comfortable hotel, pretty and spacious rooms, great terrace, they had thought of everything. Watersports included, with a really helpful and patient guy (Ricardo) who took us to swim with turtles and taught my husband to waterski
If you like the British way of life you should not miss this resort. It is in a lovely spot on the island, quiet, lush, AND without mosquitoes! As my wife gets bitten very easily this is an important point for us.
The place is very lovely, it is lush and well maintained, the staff is very friendly and the service excellent.
You can walk to the next town in 15 or 20 minutes if you like. We took the bus to Barbados proper, the yellow bus, for US$ 1 a person. It comes with loud local music, local people riding it. It is quite an experience, we both liked it a lot.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are very good - the afternoon tea an experience in itself. We will come back to this place should we get „stranded“ in Barbados again.
