The Shepherds Cottage


Cottage 1 

    Nestled in the woods with a fire pit at waters edge         


Thistlestone is a working sheep farm 1 hour from Toronto. We have 98 acres with approximately 10 acres of ponds that feature a trail that includes bridges, a boardwalk, birding blind and also a creek, marsh and a vernal pond. We are 10 minutes from the entry points for the Bruce Trail (Scottsdale and Limehouse) and are 20 minutes from the Trans Canada Trail and Forks of the Credit near Erin.We are also at the gateway to experience Fergus, Elora, Elmira and Mennonite Country.


Both accomodations include bedding, towels, a kitchen with all utencils and a dish washer.

Each also has a DVD player with movies provided.


Thank you for the stay and hospitality.  A nice place and a refreshing sleep after a long drive.

Dreamed of sheep all night!

We only got to stay for two nights but it was wonderful. We were here for the Bruce Trail end to end hike (Toronto section). I am glad Keith was able to provide us with a farm tour and a walk around the pond. The dock is a beautiful and peaceful spot. Can't wait to come back.
