This was our first trip to Newfoundland and our stay was perfect for the family. The cottage was cosy and offered an amazing view of Tors Cove Pond. You felt isolated and the kids had plenty of places to explore - the woods, water and nearby hiking trails. The owners communicated very well with us and things were as promised....

How to get there
Airport: St. John's Intl Airport (YYT): 45.0 km
When driving into Tors Cove from St. John's you need to pass right through the town. As you're driving, you will see a black pipe line on your right followed by a rocky burm and guard rail on the road. We are the first gravel driveway on the right. If you pass the signs: 'Colbert's Puffin and Whale Tours' and 'Bauline East', you have gone too far. You would have to turn around and make a left onto the second driveway on your left.
