Cobblers Cove Hotel, Barbados

Stroll along the beach – or amble through the luxuriant tropical gardens – and you are definitely in the Caribbean. Turn back towards the house and you’ll recognise England’s influence.

The patios and verandas have cane furniture that wouldn’t look out of place in an English conservatory. The architecture of the Great House has a Georgian feel but the pastel pink is decidedly Barbadian in style. The gardens would do credit to a country manor house, but the trees aren’t oaks; they’re palms, the birds are multi-coloured and the flowers are similarly exotic.

Call in at Cobblers Cove on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to the West Indies and you’ll have the best of both worlds. English elegance combined with Caribbean character. So you can enjoy afternoon tea overlooking a stunning curve of white sand. You can go scuba diving in the morning and play cricket in the afternoon. And dine on fresh Barbadian seafood – in a restaurant called Camelot.
