Fodor's Review

The ruins of this somewhat restored house (reputedly once the property of Thomas Jefferson) and surrounding replicas of chattel-house cottages are set in 6 acres of glorious gardens, with exotic flowers, an old bell tower, and an enormous, gnarled 350-year-old saman tree (sometimes called a rain tree). Inside, at Caribelle Batik, you can watch artisans hand-printing fabrics by the 2,500-year-old Indonesian wax-and-dye process known as batik.You can also stroll to the17th-century ruins of Wingfield Manor, site of the first land grant in the British West Indies, and home to a zip-lining outfit. A new bar offers splendid panoramic vistas of the rain forest. Look for signs indicating a turnoff for Romney Manor near Old Road.
