York will take you to a 10-acre estate that was built in the 17th century and remains an important historical site in St. Kitts. The home was once owned by Sam Jefferson II, the great great great grandfather of Thomas Jefferson. Wandering around Romney Manor you can view the 350-year old saman tree, which is 24 feet in diameter and covers a half acre. There are 6 acres of glorious gardens with exotic flowers and an old bell tower that back right up to ancient rain forests. There is an air of spirituality at Romney Manor many visitors frequently experience. The setting is majestic.The brightly colored house on this plantation is the current home of Caribelle Batik. You can watch artisans hand-printing fabrics by the 2500 year old Indonesian wax and dye process known as batik. Fabrics dyed in a variety of different patterns and colors adorn this charming home and are available to the public. Romney Manor is a must for photographers and is a popular wedding spot for locals
