The historic residence of St Nicholas Abbey was built in 1658 in its Jacobean grandeur with 400 acres of sugar cane fields and ancient mahogany woods. With a long lineage of British owners, the property was then purchased by Barbadian architect, Larry Warren in 2006 and tasteful restored into a heritage attraction and producer of premium single cask rums. Growing their own canes, the rum is a genuine field to cask product, truly handcrafted from milling to barreling, and bottled by hand. Only made in small batch artisanal production, these special bottles of exceptional rum can be personally engraved while you wait. Personalised Rum Experience Tours bookable on Tuesday and Thursday with owner. The Abbey also continues to expand their cottage industry to include Rum Barrel Coffee, liqueurs like Bajan Lemoncello and Monkey Business, jams, jellies and a whole lot more.

The sight of a 100-year-old steam locomotive chugging across the hillside with the Atlantic Ocean filling the background stirs the heart. A truly heritage adventure, and the newest attraction at St Nicholas Abbey, recreating a bit of history, and allowing visitors to experience hitherto inaccessible areas of the plantation.
Here you can board the newly restored 1914 Jung steam locomotive, Tjepper #5, which started its working life in the sugar fields of Java, and learn about the history of the original Barbados Railway, which closed in 1937. Meandering through the sugarcane fields, ancient mahogany woods and the 40 ft rock cuttings of an abandoned limestone quarry, to the spectacular wild Atlantic view at Cherry Tree Hill where visitors are invited to assist with turning of the locomotive - for fun!
