About the Property
2 bedroom fully renovated 1890's Farmhouse with Ocean Views
Whether you love adventure and hiking through trails, or you have more of an artistic flair there's a little bit of everything available just around the corner. Take advantage of the easy day trips to historical Fort Anne and the world-famous Historical Gardens in Annapolis Royal, or plan a day to Brier Island and go whale watching. There are plenty of opportunities to pick up antiques and unique crafts, with lots of art galleries in the area. Wineries and farmer's markets abound in the valley. And of course there's always some interesting things to see when you go exploring the sea floor when the tide is out at Hampton Beach.

The property is a 10 minute walk to Hampton Beach and the historical Hampton Lighthouse, pack a lunch and go exploring the ocean floor when the tides are out. Don't miss out on the Annapolis Royal farmer's market on Saturday mornings, and while in town check out the world famous Historic Gardens, and Fort Anne.
Head on down to the end of Shore Road and take a hike along the Delaps Cove Wilderness Trails, and stop in at the Nautical Seafoods market in Parker's Cove for fresh lobster and scallops. Whale watching is a must! Drive out to Brier's Island to hop on a zodiac and follow a pod of whales for 3 hours, get there early and you can explore Seal Cove before you head out. On the way home be sure to stop at Lavena's Catch Cafe for some of the tastiest seafood chowder you've ever had.
If you love art than Annapolis Valley is the place to explore! Be sure to take a drive into Bear River and pop into the Flight of Fancy gallery/store. Featuring local artists this place has a little bit of everything, and if you spend less than 1 hour in the store it'd be a first. On the way out of Bear River take a tour of the winery, or if you're more into coffee, check out the Sissiboo coffee roastery.

About the owner: Rob and Laura Bright are the proud owners of Down by the Bay Farm in Hampton, Nova Scotia. Originally from the "big smoke" (Toronto) we have been itching to get out into the country and try our hand at farming. We started looking for some property in Ontario, but on a whim came out to Nova Scotia on vacation and fell in love with this little farm in Hampton. We aren't ready yet to completely leave city life behind (e.g. still need to work!) but we love coming out here for a few weeks at a time when we can.
Why the Owner Chose Annapolis, Subd. B, NS, Canada:
We just loved exploring the area in and around Hampton last year. There are so many little towns and interesting places to check out. There is a little bit of everything just around the corner: farmer's markets, museums, whale watching tours, wineries, historical sites, art galleries. And of course, the Maritime hospitality and friendliness is not to be missed!
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
There are so many things that made us fall in love with the farm. The view of the Bay of Fundy for starters, and of course the 6 acres of land with a small pasture (perfect for short walks with the dog). The neighbour across the road have a horse, and a donkey (named Donkey just like the one in Shrek), and when you get tired of looking out over the bay, you can just watch the horse and donkey grazing. The little room on the left of the house is a perfect cozy spot to curl up with a good book on a cold rainy day. And the kitchen is probably the biggest one we have ever had!
