WELCOME TO AMBLECROFT

  Our 200 year old farmhouse is situated on 4 idyllic hectares (10 acres) in the beautiful rolling hills of Northumberland County.  Bordering the
the 11,000 acre conservation lands known as the Ganaraska Forest we enjoy hiking
  and exploring the 400 miles of public trails.

Please come and visit with us and meet all the animals and spend the rest of the day discovering this beautiful part of Ontario.
