Comfrey Cottage Art Gallery
The Comfrey Cottage is the perfect showcase for a variety of artists’ styles. The sandblasted cedar walls make a perfect backdrop for all types of art. This year, the art is contributed by Bel Angeles of the “Corkery Sunroom”, Gerry Bedard of “the Herb Garden”, the “West Carleton Arts Society” and the “Almonte Potters Guild”.
The Bergamot Barn is a renovated animal barn built 150 years ago. Step in to cool off on a hot summer day. Sit in the shade on the porch or the patio in the sun. Have a cooling drink of our delicious well water. This unique barn is a great setting for your upcoming wedding, event or corporate meeting!
Our display gardens are now closed.
Wild Walk and Perimeter Trails
The “Wild Walk Trail is a short, fun trail that winds through the eastern edge of the property and leads to a pond. In the early spring, Lady Slippers may be found on the edge of the trail. if the deer do not find them first.
The “Perimeter Trail” circles the property – under cover of trees, behind the labyrinth and through the fields.
Having a labyrinth in the setting of an herb garden is a natural partnering of healing energies. Walking a labyrinth can be a powerful tool to support the healing of body, mind and spirit and, of course, many herbs have healing attributes.
Our labyrinth is serene and circular in form, used as a walking meditation or spiritual practice. Our labyrinth’s path is arranged in such a way that the participant moves back and forth across the circular form through a series of curves, ending at the labyrinth’s heart or centre. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to walk a labyrinth.
