Watch Waves, Whales, Icebergs around the bay
The Cox House is located in the small community of Blackhead along The Baccalieu trail in Conception Bay North. This area of Newfoundland is remarkably similar to Scotland or Ireland heath moors on coastal hillsides and craggy cliffs jutting down to the sea. For photography buffs there are amazing vistas at every turn.
Hike along the coast and find a seabird nesting area or venture up one of the many woodland trails to and old train trestle. A short 9km drive and you can be walking the broad expanse of sandy beach at Northern Bay Sands provincial park.
The Cox House has maintained much of its traditional character while still providing all the modern comforts you expect on holiday. There are 2 bedrooms with double beds and a pull out sofa bed if needed . If you consider a pet part of your travelling family we welcome them too! Fully equipped with linens, kitchenware, barbeque, tv/dvd/vhs, games, Newfoundland books, and even an ecclectic old LP collection to take you back in time.
Watch whales right from your bed, hike the coastline to a seabird nesting area, relax under the stars around a toasty firepit, or take a relaxing dip in a freshwater stream.
At the tip of the peninsula is the world famous Baccalieu Island Bird Sanctuary - nesting ground for North America 's largest colony of Leach 's Storm Petrels. Seabirds such as Northern Gannets, Black Guillemots, Sea Pigeons, Puffins are just some of the many feathered friends that make Conception Bay North home during the summer.
There are numerous coastal hiking trails - remnants of the roads from communities long since gone. Inland the former railway line has been maintained as a recreational trail.

We just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Cox House! That area of Conception Bay is very special to us. We visit it at least once a summer and more often when we can and the weather was near perfect so our few days away would have been great regardless of accommodations. However, your house was such a treat! The record player was a huge hit, especially with the kids. The records were terrific. Great idea! Beautiful view and very cozy too!
