Beautifully situated at about 3500 ft in the Blue Mountains, Lime Tree Farm is a superb base for hiking, birding or just relaxing in peace and quiet. Charlie, Suzy and Roger were wonderful hosts, always happy to talk to their guests and share their experiences. The accommodation was to a high standard and the communal bar/dining area proved to be a great place to share the events of the day. Food was local, fresh and prepared to a very good standard. Excellent trip to Cinchona Gardens and great birding on the Old Mine Trail and again in the Blue Mountains National Park. There is a sun terrace but no swimming pool (who needs that all the time anyway). Don't bother with a hire car, let Charlie & Roger do the driving on what are, it must be said, very poor roads. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to see a different part of Jamaica away from the usual tourist traps and who has a genuine interest in the outdoors.
