Denma Farm is located in The Falls, a tiny farming community on Route 311, 25 minutes from Truro, 10 minutes from the villa
ge of Tatamagouche (and the ocean), 1 hour and 15 minutes by car from Halifax International Airport, and 45 minutes from the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island.
The Falls is named for the spectacular waterfalls, a short hike or a 5 minute drive from Denma Farm, where cooling natural pools offer the perfect sanctuary on a hot summer's day or a frozen natural wonder in the winter.
The country road to Tatamagouche passes a horse farm and climbs the Cobequid mountain ending at this unique 165 acre property. Pass over the creek as you enter the drive and are welcomed by the pear and apple trees surrounding the house. When you turn off the car engine, this will be the last engine you hear as you tune into the cricket and birdcalls of a Nova Scotia summer.
The sight of eagles might startle you on your morning walk through the fields and woods. For a lunchtime swim, indulge yourself in one of the four spring-fed ponds, or answer the call of the sea, a short drive away. For cocktails, sit on the deck and listen to the brook while you plan your next hike to the waterfalls or an outing to one of the nearby championship golf courses.
