Royal Westmoreland Estate is For Sale
Millionaire John Morphet is putting his very large, and ultra-luxurious, estate up for sale. You might be familiar with the Royal Westmoreland property located in Barbados. The gated estate was featured in trailers for the upcoming season of Made in Chelsea, and popular television series. The former farmer, John, is selling this lush and luxurious piece of land for a mere $112 million.
The estate features 225 properties, including quaint cottages and regal colonial houses. The Royal Westmoreland is home to many athletes and celebrities, including Wayne Rooney and Michael Vaughn. The world’s top executives also flock toward Westmoreland when looking for a place to call home. Some just use this estate as a luxury holiday hot spot. The paradise setting and lush tropical surroundings are serene and calming.
Royal Westmoreland also boasts as an award-winning golf resort. The championship course is on 7045 lush tropical acres. The par 72 course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and is constantly one of the highest ranking courses in the Caribbean. The greens boast ocean views, an audience of local monkeys, and a luxurious halfway house. Located in St. James parish of Barbados, the estate is only ten minutes from the gorgeous coast.
The estate sits on 750 acres of beautiful landscaped, tropical property. Plans for further expansion are in order, as well as another world-class golf course and a hotel. Guests and owners at the estate have access to an exclusive and private, white sand beach. Though it is only 3k away, the Royal Westmoreland offers a shuttle service for guests to reach Mullins Bay Beach. The pristine area offers wonderful snorkeling opportunities, as the water is teeming with tropical fish. The beach also supports oceanic turtle life, an exclusive treat of this beach. The Beach Club houses the Mullins Beach Bar, where guests can relax, grab food or a drink, and watch the waves roll in.
If you’re in the mood for a little (or a lot) of indulgence, hop over to the Indulgence Spa. Its only a short walk off the beach.

After all that fun and relaxation, food is in order. Guests and owners who wish to eat at home, but do not wish to exhaust themselves with cooking, can contact the Concierge. From there, they will arrange a chef to prepare a home cooked meal, made to order – whatever you’re craving. Perhaps you’d rather whip together an all-star meal yourself. The ingredients can be brought fresh to your door. The Concierge can also get owners and guests a reservation at any of the fine establishments throughout the island. The local Bajan cuisine is influenced by flairs from Britain, Spain, Portugal, and West Africa, making for exotic and mouthwatering tastes you won’t find elsewhere. Restaurants include The Cliff, Cin Cin by the Sea (traditional island cuisine), Rum Shak Bar and BBQ, Daphne’s, Lone Star, and Tides Restaurant.
