This is your property ?


Wake to the sound of waves, watch seabirds diving into Conception bay while you drink coffee in bed - perhaps even spot a few whales or an iceberg just off the point.

The Cox House is located in the small community of Blackhead along The Baccalieu trail in Conception Bay North. This area of Newfoundland is remarkably similar to Scotland or Ireland – heath moors on coastal hillsides and craggy cliffs jutting down to the sea. For photography buffs – there are amazing vistas at every turn.

Hike along the coast and find a seabird nesting area or venture up one of the many woodland trails to and old train trestle. A short 9km drive and you can be walking the broad expanse of sandy beach at Northern Bay Sands provincial park. At the farthest tip of Conception Bay North is the Baccalieu Island Bird Sanctuary - home to the North America's largest colony of Leach's Storm Petrels. In addition, Northern Gannets, Black Guillemots, Puffins and many more spend summers in the area.

The Cox House has maintained much of its traditional character while still providing all the modern comforts you expect on holiday. There are 2 bedrooms with double beds and a pull out sofa bed if needed . If you consider a pet part of your travelling family we welcome them too! Fully equipped with linens, kitchenware, barbeque, tv/dvd/vhs, games, Newfoundland books, and even an ecclectic old LP collection to take you back in time.

We're Looking forward to your visit - aren't You?!
