Warkworth: Where Country Meets Style

Head about 90 minutes east of Toronto and you’ll hit the Village of Warkworth in the heart of Northumberland County. One of three communities within the Municipality of Trent Hills, Warkworth is full of small town charm with a touch of urban style.

If you love fresh air -- and fresh coffee -- head over to Our Lucky Stars Cafe and fuel up on some fair trade organic coffee, roasted on site, before heading out on one of several mapped out bike tours.

While there is plenty to do outdoors, Warkworth is also a centre for the arts. The Ah! Arts and Heritage Centre is a hub for exhibitions, learning, performing arts and more. Enjoy specialty shops to satisfy any craving from baked goods and chocolate to beeswax candles and homemade pottery.

And while it may be small, it’s certainly not sleepy! In March, enjoy the annual Maple Syrup Festival. July plays host to the annual rock music festival, the Warkworth Music Fest. In between there’s a fishing derby, a lilac festival, and of course, a Fall Fair.

If you’re looking for a more relaxed lifestyle east of Toronto, this village might be just what the doctor ordered. Whether it’s a day on the golf course, gardening or a walk along the Millennium Trail around Mill Creek, Warkworth is the perfect place to let go of your stress and breathe in fresh air.

Why not come for a visit and see for yourself? Make it a day trip or stay at one of the local bed & breakfasts and get to know the locals and the area.

If you’re thinking about a move to the country, give me a call and I can help you make this your best move...ever.
