About

High on a cliff overlooking the sea, Gloucester Place commands one of Tobago’s finest views of the Caribbean in one direction and the Rain Forrest Reserve in the other. Just a short walk from the beach in the picturesque fishing village of Parlatuvier, this area is considered one of the loveliest on the island. Guests can enjoy the mesmerizing crashing of waves against the rocks, daily migrations of frigate birds as they cruise along the coast, or listen to the cries of the cocricos, chatter of the parrots, and songs of other island birds. The property consists of two houses and an infinity edge swimming pool, bounded by a river on one side and the sea on the other. Surrounding the houses are gardens, mature coconut palms, mango and other fruit trees, and lots of banana plants. Paths lead along the hillside past the fruit trees, down to Creighton River and our own water fall and swimming hole. The Main Ridge Forest trail is just 10 minutes away. We have a large veranda on the main floor, perfect for bird watching and checking boats at sea. Another veranda on the second floor overlooks the sea in two directions. Each of our three guest rooms is air conditioned with en-suite bath. Two rooms have queen sized beds, and one has twin beds that convert to king sized with the addition of another mattress.

Finest place in town!

5 on August 20, 2014

My wife and I visited Tobago, Bea and Win and Gloucester Place in March of 2014. What a wonderful experience we had. Not only are Bea and Win the finest of hosts but their guest house is beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. Bea is a great cook and Win is just as good of a server as they keep you advised of the high points of the island and their life full of adventure. We stayed in the Concord Room which was simply and tastefully furnished. It had a very nice balcony that overlooked incredible sunsets on the Caribbean Sea. It was the perfect place to enjoy a cold Carib beer while talking with your mate about the adventures you had that day. Gloucester Place is in a good central location on the island from there you can easily take day trips to close by, nearly deserted, beaches and snorkel and swim to your hearts content. You can walk to the local tavern, Andy’s, and take in refreshments as you sit on his upper deck watching the fishing boats come in to Parlatuvier Bay. Don’t forget to visit Castara’s fine “Mom and Pop” restaurants for the best local cuisine and, almost more importantly, to visit Heavenly Bay, which we did a few times. If you need a car rental be sure to contact Taylor Auto Rental, they are very nice folk and very accommodating. When will we get back to Tobago again? I am not sure, but we will be staying with Bea and Win at Gloucester Place, for sure!


Quite Pleasant!

5 on April 01, 2014

My sister, nephew and I had the complete pleasure of staying at Gloucester Place house in March of 2014. Innkeepers, Win and Bea were truly a delight and made our stay that much more a success. The house is a distance from the main town, airport and ferry but completely worth the trip. This part of the island is so tranquil, manicured, green and unspoiled. We enjoyed just wandering (we had our car) or walking to the nearby waterfall or lunch/drink spots and beach. The breakfast on the open-air deck/kitchen starts each day the way you would want on vacation. Yum! Bea and Win are very accommodating in every way, you can even eat other meals in their house and they're quite the duo in the kitchen. I especially enjoyed their stories from many years of life abroad. Good times had by all. So much so, we're going back in April!


Delightful B&B

5 on March 28, 2014

Gloucester Place is a terrific find for those of us that like to be a little off the beaten path when on vacation. Win and Bea are perfect island hosts and they want to share the best of Tobago and every gem that the north side of this beautifully unspoiled island has to offer. We were literally taken in as family and really made to feel so welcome. Everything about the house is relaxed and calm and the sound of the waves always present crashing onto the rocks below is truly mesmerizing. Coupled with the views of the forest in one direction and ocean in the other you can’t help but smile about how lucky you are to have been smart enough to book this place! We suggest you come hungry because there is a lot of good food to eat on this island and Bea’s fresh banana pancakes at breakfast should not be missed. We enjoyed watching the local birds right at the inn, relaxing at the pool, walking to the local waterfalls, going into the rainforest, touring a cocoa plantation, visiting nearly every beautiful cove beach on the island and most of all the thrill of driving around the entire island anticipating what view the next hairpin bend would bring.


Friendly bird watching paradise

3.6 on February 05, 2014

If you want a clean, comfortable guest house with the most welcoming and friendly owners, away from the tourist hotspots, then this is it. Originally picked as part of a bird watching trip, so we could be near the rainforest reserve in the north of the island it is a gem. Bea and Win just make you feel relaxed and at ease as soon as you arrive. The guest house is in a cliff side location with spectacular views overlooking the Caribbean Sea about an hours drive from the airport. With a few tips on the local spots from Bea and Win we were soon watching some stunning birds. Top River Falls in Parlatuvier is not to be missed. On the short easy walk to these picturesque falls we saw specialities such as Barred Antshrike, White-fringed Antwren, Green Kingfisher, Rufous-tailed Jacamar and Blue-crowned Motmot. Around Parlatuvier Bay itself we saw Magnificant Frigatebirds, Brown Booby and Brown Pelicans. If we come back to Tobago, Gloucester Place will be top of our accommodation list. Thanks Bea and Win for a most enjoyable stay


Great B&B on north side of Tobago

4.6 on January 26, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at Gloucester Place for 10 days over the holidays and had a wonderful time. Bea and Winn are super sweet and helpful. The house is very clean and the grounds are beautiful, especially the pool/yard. We woke to the lovely sound of birds each morning and then were treated to yummy breakfasts and great conversations. The rooms are perfect - all that we needed and more. Fresh beach towels were provided each day. In addition, they did laundry for us twice! So awesome. It was also nice to have a balcony facing the beautiful Caribbean Sea. You definitely need a car on the north side of the island, which is more quiet and less developed. But we found this side pleasant and next to our favorite beaches and restaurants. I highly recommend staying at Gloucester Place for a nice and peaceful getaway in Tobago.


Amazing holiday

5 on January 24, 2014

My husband and I stayed here with our three grown up children (19 yrs - 26yrs) It was like staying in Paradise. Beautiful location, friendly hosts and wonderful food.The breakfasts were different each day. We requested an evening meal one night and it was delicious. Our bedroom had an amazing view looking down through the lush vegetation to the sea. All three rooms had an en suite bathroom and access to a balcony - very clean and comfortable. Bea and Win made us feel very welcome and were interesting and interested hosts. If we ever have the fortune of returning to Tobao we'll definitely stay here again!


Ticks all the boxes!

4.6 on December 20, 2013

Gloucester Place ticks all the boxes. We have stayed in all sorts of accommodation all over the World but the Sargent’s B&B is exceptional. Our visit was a long weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Trinidad. We left the tackiness of Crown Point behind and drove up through the countryside, arriving on the stunning North coast. The house is in a magnificent location above the little fishing village and bay of Parlatuvier. It has lovely gardens and an outstanding view down to the sea from the terrace, and from our very comfortable room. Win and Bea are the perfect hosts: welcoming, a mine of information and Bea is a great cook. We instantly felt at home. After a few drinks at the nearby bar and good conversations, we fell asleep listening to the sea and awoke the next morning to the sounds and sights of Tobago’s amazing birdlife. A little bit of Paradise…


Truly Paradise

5 on November 24, 2013

Truly Paradise. Floating in the infinity pool, seemingly about to float into the ocean and surrounding rainforest, the bird calls the only sound in the silence, you will find yourself relaxing to an entirely new level. The main house with guest rooms and bungalow are spacious and furnished beautifully from the lives and travels of the wonderful owners, Bea and Win. And super clean! Competing for your time and interest will be the huge balcony with similarly spectacular views accompanied by loads of up to date magazines where one can easily spend hours. The balcony leads off of the dining area where Bea and Win whip up spectacular breakfasts. There is a nearby beach in the bay, which one can walk down to from the guest house as well as beautiful waterfalls and other bays nearby.Win and Bea are helpful with tips of where to go and visit although its tempting just to stay and enjoy Gloucester Place the entire time. My husband and I loved every single minute of our week's stay.


Wonderful location, outstanding hospitality

4.8 on February 14, 2013

We spent four wonderful days with your hosts at Gloucester, Win and Bea, in January 2013. Parletuvier is as non-touristy as it gets, while Bea and Win deserve all the plaudits others have mentioned for their warm, welcoming, hospitality: this is like an ongoing house party of comfortable conversation, excellent accommodation, and great good...including an evening meal if you want (alternatives in the area are pretty limited). You have great access to whatever-you-had-in-mind, from snorkeling to some of the best birding in the Caribbean, pleasant walk to a waterfall, watching the fishermen, etc. Outstanding value, yet it's the warm welcome that makes this a #1 on our list.


Beautiful Ocean View near small fishing village

4.8 on February 09, 2013

We had two nights here in January '13. You do need a car to get around especially if staying more than a couple days. But Bea will cook dinner if needed. Great banana pancakes for breakfast! There is a Shared common veranda area overlooking the pounding surf below. Infinity salt water pool is down 14 steps. (The only issue we had was getting there on Northside Hwy - we took the wrong road at Moriah. Stay Right in Moriah? The road to this B & B has a hundred S curves, and you drive on the Left.) The owners live on site and make themselves available to assist you. We enjoyed dinner at Marguerite's in Castara on a Sunday night when all else was closed. We enjoyed meeting the owners, American ex-pats, and other guests - a young couple from Sweden. Gorgeous place to stay. All good.
