Sea Shed – The New Mullins Beach Bar on Opening Night

by George Hammerton

by Mark Hammerton

Over the past five years, we have spent many a happy afternoon and/or evening at Mullins Bar, just across the road from our own home on the island and we were very sad to see it close in early March following the huge storms which undermined the structure of the building at that time.

Mark and Lisa Hammerton

We are Mark and Lisa Hammerton and we are lucky enough to spend our time organising villa and apartment holidays to the wonderful Caribbean island of Barbados.

We have been involved with the travel industry for most of our working lives but fell in love with Barbados after many visits and ended up buying a second home there.

We would love to talk to you about the island and our selection of wonderful properties and, as our priority is matching the right property to your requirements, we will always be open and honest in what we have to say.
