The Barn Villa is set within the grounds of the Oughterson Plantation Great House. This beautiful villa was originally the stable for the mules that transported the sugar cane form the fields (or cane gardens) to the mill on the estate.
The spacious open floor-plan overlooks a coral stone pool with waterfalls and attached shallow pool for children. The design centers on the kitchen and conversation radiates outwards on the tropic breeze through the dining area, living area and out to the pool. The floor plan is necessarily oriented to the trade breezes which cools all in its path.

You will have a place to park outside of the Barn Villa. The grounds around the Villa are shared, so you can socialize with the guests staying in the other two villas or you can retreat to the barn for some downtime.

I am always available if you need something. Come by the house or give me a call.
I live here with my 7 dogs & they will be sure to greet you daily!
Child friendly...if they like nature and my crew of friendly collie dogs.

I am Peter Milne and I own Oughterson, the second oldest house in Barbados, or so they say. I build furniture and joinery from the plantation yard.
I moved from the UK in ‘98 and built 3 cottages and a pool in the grounds,
amid the palms and mango trees.
The place is fizzing with Wi Fi but there is no TV, but if you gaze out into the lush surroundings, preferable from a hammock over a cold drink and a good book, then there is always something absorbing to watch.
It is a discrete rural setting, so if you can hear a car, that will be your new friends you met at the beach coming over for a visit…better check the fridge.
There is a pack of friendly Border Collies that provide the security and also information on the very best places to snooze.
I have built a bunch of boats and admit to a preference for cooking good food my pals have reared, caught or grown, outdoors in good company, so if that is your thing too, I am happy to share with you.
Oh yes, the main house has a full band set up, so if you can play, or even aspire, then join the jam.
Included in the cost, is meeting you at the airport with a cooler…well, travel is trying, (sounds like a reasonable excuse to me). I will pre stock your fridge, at cost so your holiday begins by the pool not the supermarket check out.
Then welcome you to the big outdoor table for a first night’s meal that I will cook for your pleasure.
So it ain’t west coast glam, but then it ain’t west coast hustle either.
But if you reckon a holiday should be described using words like… tranquil, green, relaxed, quiet, and friendly, then this might just be the place for you and your family.
