HORSEBACK RIDING AND FAIRVIEW GREAT HOUSE & BOTANICAL GARDEN

This is a unique and ideal activity for couples or families with breathtaking views that create a perfect backdrop for vacation photos. After a short drive you will arrive at the stables where you will undertake an orientation followed by helmet and saddle fitting. Mount your horse for an adventure as you are guided through the countryside. Enjoy a panoramic view of our sister island Nevis. Enjoy the gentle cool breeze and a refreshing drink before returning to the stable.

After this relaxing ride explore and enjoy the 3 ½ acres of Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden with the old world charm of its lovingly and meticulously restored Great House along with the Caribbean Botanical Garden oasis surrounding it. Here you will enjoy a guided tour around the Great House, which is believed to have been originally built in 1701 by the French. This Great House has had many owners and inhabitants over the years, each leaving their mark and contributing to the unique history of the property. The inhabitants that have been recorded to reside at this site include the senior officer of the colonial French military in St. Kitts, as well as American legal luminary John Gardiner and Lawyer James Stephen advocate of the enslaved. The rich history of the site and the island is well displayed with its superbly furnished historical information room that brings to life the 1700s – 1800s with true impressions of what life was like on an Estate in St. Kitts during that era.

After touring the Great House discover the stone cobbled courtyard with the old kitchen building housing the original volcanic stone and brick oven, along with the old bathing room housing a large volcanic stone warmed bath.

After your rum tasting experience, take time to wonder in the 2 ½ acre Botanical Garden. Don’t forget to peek inside the gift shop and pick up some keepsakes that will remind you of this unique experience for years to come.
