This fine, classically designed Barbadian house is home to Sir David and Lady Seale of R.L. Seale and Co., Ltd., who also own the nearby Foursquare Rum Distillery and its lovely Heritage Park. Expanded in modern times, the house is strikingly decorated and filled with antiques and local artwork. Prepare to stroll; the grounds are expansive and beautiful. Even the stables are impressive. So are their occupants; the Hopefield horses have won 7 Gold Cups!
Take the ABC highway south, passing Balls Plantation/Barbados Horticultural Society. Between Coverly development and the airport is a left turn to Charnocks. Follow that road into the countryside for about 1 km, then turn right at the junction and look for Open House signs.
