Cobblers Cove was once the private home of Joss Haynes, a sugar cane planter and politician, who built it as a holiday home for the family to escape the windy and rugged east coast. Read more about the history of Cobblers Cove.
We have year-round sunshine, warm temperatures (28-29 degrees centigrade / 82-84 degrees fahrenheit is typical) and minimal variety in the seasons, so there is never a bad time to visit. Days are sunny and fair with light breezes, the evenings are always balmy. Highest rainfall is between July and October, but showers are brief and quickly followed by sunshine and blue sky. Tropical rainstorms sometimes occur over the summer, but hurricanes usually avoid Barbados. The last occasion the island suffered a direct hit from a major hurricane was in 1955. View the resort map
