About

The Great House

The Cobblers Cove main house, now known as the Great House, was built in 1943 by plantation owner Joss Haynes and has undergone extensive renovations and expansion works over the years to complete its transformation from a family beach house to a luxury boutique resort hotel. Happily today the iconic pink and white building still retains the beauty of the original architecture with its charming bay windows and turreted roof tops. 

First impressions on arrival at the sun-washed coral pink stone frontage are of the striking views through the Great House out to the blue waters of the ocean beyond - a stunning Bajan welcome. The house is home to the terraced Camelot Restaurant and Bar, both open to balmy tropical breezes and overlooking the palm fringed beach and the poolside deck.

The elegant Drawing Room is also situated in the main house. Designed in comfortable colonial style, it's the perfect hideaway to curl up and relax with a good book, enjoy a board game or meet friends and family. Set atop the Great House  are the hotel’s two magnificent signature suites, the Camelot and Colleton, the crowning glory of Cobblers Cove’s unrivalled suite collection.

Cobblers Cove has always been proud to embrace its Bajan heritage which is reflected in the use of indigenous resources throughout the hotel – the original steel in the buildings came from the old island railway, the decorative coral rock was carved on the island and all the furniture is made in Barbados. The architecture blends the grandeur of an English estate with the laidback style and tropical vibrance of the Caribbean. The same potent combination gives Cobblers Cove its authentic character and charm.
