Make a holiday rental cabin or holiday home in Nova Scotia your home away from home

Nova Scotia is a region of breath taking natural beauty, famous around the world for its rich nature, wonderful wines and sensational scenery. If you are looking to really escape for a few weeks and enjoy the finer things in life, then a holiday rental in Nova Scotia is the ideal place to be.

Things to do in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is a remarkable natural region, with much of the landscape protected in vast national parks. UNESCO have accredited many of the parks as World Heritage Sites due to their amazing wealth of wildlife and landscapes. Walkers will be in their own personal heaven in a Nova Scotia log cabin as the walking and hiking routes are endless, giving walkers and unrivalled experience of a true wilderness, in which wildlife is still king. The cliff walks of the Cape Chignecto are particularly spectacular, but for the best wildlife viewing, from moose to black bear, turtle to bald eagle, the Cape Breton Highlands National Park cannot be beaten.

The coastline of Nova Scotia is truly inspiring. Lined with over 120 delightful little beaches, often backed by pine forests and recording some of the highest tides in the world, walking, sunbathing or canoeing along the coast is a perfect way to spend a day. The Bay of Fundy is a particularly popular coastal destination, where you can enjoy fossil hunting as well as join whale watching trips or visit the seal colony.

The landscapes of Nova Scotia are so varied than you can practice any outdoor sport with ease and some hugely memorable results. Even the famous golf courses of Nova Scotia are spectacular, especially around Cape Breton. After a long day outside working up an appetite, you can enjoy the sensational cuisine of Nova Scotia, especially if you have a soft spot for lobster, Digby scallops or smoked salmon, accompanied by a glass of fine white wine.

Places to visit on holiday in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia’s Liverpool also stands at the mouth of the River Mersey, but there are few other similarities. The region is incredibly beautiful, and offers a perfect base for walkers, kayakers, bird watchers and even cross-country skiers!

Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia, and if you are looking to experience the best of life, with fine food, excellent shopping and plenty of cultural entertainment, a holiday home in Nova Scotia is the perfect choice.
