The perfect place to meet
Conveniently located in the heart of The County, our beautiful village is always within easy reach. It’s your ideal home base from which to explore all that The County has to offer, and a place where locals and visitors alike come to meet. Bloomfield is just 15 minutes from the beaches of Sandbanks Provincial Park, and halfway between Wellington and Picton on the Loyalist Parkway.
An authentic farm-to-table community
Settled by entrepreneurial farmers in the late 1700’s, Bloomfield remains true to its roots. There are working farms right in the village, just behind the row of houses lining Main Street. Chances are, something on the menu at our delightful restaurants and cafes came from just down the street.
It doesn’t get more local than that!
A history of hospitality
Our village has been welcoming guests for some 200 years now. From the earliest days of settlement, Bloomfield’s mills attracted farmers from a great distance, who stayed overnight in hotels while their grain was being ground. Today, you can choose from a diverse range of charming B&Bs, inns and rentals with modern amenities in both historic and contemporary buildings. Book early!
Take a piece of Bloomfield home with you
In the centre of the village, you’ll find a wide variety of shops with a diverse array of unique wares. Seeking the perfect souvenir? There’s a painting, pottery piece, glass treasure, vintage find, or woodcraft wonder with your name on it in one of the many antique shops, galleries and craft workshops nestled in our country lanes.
Bloomfield has a longstanding reputation for its charm. An 1878 description of the town in an historical atlas is still relevant today: “beautifully shaded avenues, luxuriant flower gardens, and well-kept grounds.” Not to mention the unique architectural character of the village, whose elegant red brick homes feature distinctive cornice treatments and refined trim and verandas.
Big love for a tiny town
This little village has been quietly winning the hearts of tourism writers, celebrity chefs and lifestyle bloggers. Time Inc.’s Travel + Leisure magazine made special mention of Bloomfield when they profiled The County as one of the world’s 50 best places to visit in 2015. We suspect you’ll love it here too!
