Town Of Digby

The Town of Digby: The town of Digby is 20 miles or so from The Gardener's Cottage and is situated on the picturesque shores of The Annapolis Basin. Digby has a population of 2,311 and has a wonderful, quiet, tranquil feel to it. Residents are extremely friendly and welcoming and you'll enjoy visiting the many restaurants, cafes and shops. The Harbour is home to a working fishing fleet and Digby is famous, rightly so, for the delicious scallops harvested from the clean and clear local waters. Visitors to The Gardener's Cottage should make it a priority to try some Digby Scallops in one of the many local restaurants who are expert in preparing Scallop dishes.

In 1997 Canadian Living Magazine asked readers to nominate their home towns as the 'Best In Canada'. After reviewing all nominations the magazine announced Digby as the most romantic place in Canada!

We'll leave you to make up your own mind about that, but one thing's for sure, you'll enjoy a relaxing, energising break at The Gardener's Cottage.Off Season - Feb 1 2014 - Apr 30 2014 and Nov 1 2014 - Apr 30 2015 - $736/monthly

The Gardener's Cottage will have been cleaned with fresh bedding and towels provided prior to your arrival.

The 'Pet Fee' of $100 will be refunded within 14 days of departure once we have confirmed that there has been no damage or extra cleaning required.Whale Watching: Digby Neck is arguably the Whale Watching Capital of the World and guests to The Gardener's Cottage are spoilt for choice when it comes to Whale watching operators. The exciting Ocean Exploration Zodiac Whale Cruises, www.oceanexplorations.ca, describe themselves as 'Nova Scotia's most exciting and popular whale/sea bird cruises!' As repeat customers of Ocean Explorations we can vouch for their excellence and the Zodiac ride on it's own is a worthwhile experience. Tom Goodwin the Tour Director is a Marine Biologist and his knowledge and experience further enhance the enjoyment of your Whale watching Trip. There are of course other operators who depart from within a few miles of The Gardener's Cottage and whilst the boat ride may not be as 'fast and furious, the sheer magnificence of these wonderful marine mammals is not diminished.

Kejimkujik National Park: Kejimkujik National Park is the only inland park in Canada. Situated in the Maritimes this park is easily accessible to visitors of The Gardener's Cottage.

The lush woodlands and rolling landscape are home to a variety of wildlife and visitors may enjoy historic canoe routes including portages as well as many beautiful hiking trails.

Parks Canada say that Kejimkujik provides the best canoeing country in Nova Scotia. You don't have to be an experienced canoe handler to enjoy the quiet lakes and gently flowing rivers as guided canoe outings are given throughout the summer by park interpreters. This is also an ideal place for first time canoers or children to learn how to pilot these vessels.

Cyclists may use their own bikes or rent one and then enjoy the 5 multi purpose trails in the park. For those that prefer the security of their own two feet, Keji offers a trail for everyone.Check in is no earlier than 4:00 pm and check out no later than 10:00 am.

A perfect "base camp" for exploring the Digby area

  • 5 of 5

After a full day of sightseeing and exploring, it was a pleasure to return to the cottage each evening and put my feet up. It sits on a lovely plot in a pleasant village, and the entire home was clean, very comfortable, and fully-equipped. I'm already looking forward to my next stay!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Spent four nights here, watching the leaves change colour from the deck of this very cute cottage, what a gem, the view is fabulous looking out over Little River, the Gardeners cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay. It is the perfect location for whale watching and hiking and a bit of peace and quiet. We would certainly rent this cottage again. Peter was great to deal with and we appreciated him letting us have our old faithful dog Bella join us, always a treat when we can bring her along.
