Tours

The Bellefield Great House and its Estate have the distinction of being one of the oldest sugar plantations in Jamaica. This lush tropical estate sits on 10 acres of land, and has been part of the Kerr-Jarrett family holdings for more than eleven generations.

We invite you to tour our beautiful estate and take a step back in time into the life of an 18th century Jamaican planter and appreciate the grandeur and opulence of the "Great Era of the Jamaican Sugar Estate".
