The October 2017 retreat location is being held at The Farm B&B near Tillsonburg, just off Highway # 3 between Delhi and Tillsonburg on Fern Lea Side Road.
Recently renovated and bursting with
country charm, The Farm opened early September 2015 and offers several clean, quiet rooms.
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city The Farm is the perfect stay for business, wedding parties, or to simply get away from the distractions of modern life. (from the website)
The Farm B&B was host to the Spring 2017 Bereaved Mothers Retreat Weekend. With 6 moms in attendance, Marcia was a most generous and loving host. She opened her home to mothers travelling from the United States and within Ontario. The Farm B&B gave us all an informal, cozy and yet spacious atmosphere for the spa and yoga sessions, alone time and country walks. The enormous kitchen hosted many delicious homemade meals including Marcia's homemade buns as well as numerous chats around the large kitchen table. Each mom enjoyed a comfortable and private room complete with a hand made quilt and flowers to welcome them.
Flowers were donated by Mary Howe from Fern Lea flowers. Thank you to Mary and the Fern Lea Family.
While visiting The Farm, you may wish to pack comfortable shoes and a jacket for walks and outdoor sits. Mother Nature has blessed the surrounding area with plenty of wild life and green space completing the overall atmosphere with a sense of openess, relaxation and calm.
The Farm B&B is located approximately 45 to London, Ontario, 2 hours from Toronto, 30 minutes from Simcoe, and 10 minutes to Tillsonburg and is easily accessible to the major highways including the 401 and 403.
