Car: Necessary

Located just 40 kilometres south of St. John's on Route 10 in a picturesque community of Burnt Cove just minutes outside of Tors Cove. The area offers a scenic drive along the Irish Loop and is close to many Tour Boat Operations. The property fronts on part of the East Coast Trail. Hiking to abandoned community of LaManche where there is a suspension bridge. This village was destroyed by a tidal wave back in the 1960's and people were forced to re-settle. This hike takes about 1.5 hours (approximately 5 kilometres). Don't forget to take a short detour to Doctor's Cove. If you're looking for some traditional Newfoundland food the renowned Captain's Table in Mobile is your place. Try out their fish & chips or delicious fish cakes. Ocean View Bakery is just a short walk away where you can enjoy homemade fresh breads and an assortment of cookies. LaManche Provincial Park is only 15 minutes away and offers day use with a swimming area. Try taking the hike to LaManche Falls and go for a dip. Visit St. Michael's Catholic Church which is over a hundred years old and is only a five minute walk from the cottage. If it's gifts or souvenirs you're looking for be sure to go to Alderberry Blum which is located in Bay Bulls. If you like history, the place to go is Ferryland, Colony of the Avalon which is located about 25 minutes from the cottage where there is an archaelogical dig, interpretation centre, gift shop with tradional Newfoundland gifts and a display of the finds. While you're there take a short walk out to Ferryland Head Lighthouse and enjoy a picnic overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Also, in this area during the summer months they have a dinner theatre with local talent. Be sure to make reservations. Local art can be found at the Five Island Art Gallery in Tors Cove.

 

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I built this home ourselves as a summer cottage with our children who at the time were very young and they loved to help. Our cottage has a lot of beautiful memories for us. I wanted to be close to my family so my parents would have the opportunity to see my children grow and for them to know what it's like to grow up in a small community. This land that the cottage sits on has been passed down from generation to generation and has been in my family since the late 1800's. We used this land when I was growing up for hay for our horses.
