A little village with a big place in people’s hearts, the town of Bloomfield is ideally situated in the centre of The County. Having been settled by entrepreneurial farmers in the late 1700s, Bloomfield and the surrounding area remains true to its agricultural roots and even has working farms right in town. Restaurants and cafés serve up fresh, local ingredients – some coming from just down the road, and some being served up in artisanal ice cream. Bloomfield’s main stretch has a host of quirky boutiques, featuring clothing, accessories, home and kitchen products and lots of County-made finds. Rent a bicycle and ride to nearby galleries and antique emporiums or simply cruise past stunning Loyalist architecture. The area has been welcoming guests for some 200 years – so you know the local accommodations won’t disappoint.
