Welcome to Northumberland County.
Northumberland County offers a range of living experiences from historic towns to scenic rolling rural areas to spectacular water settings, stretching across the shore of beautiful Lake Ontario, to the south, and scenic Rice Lake, to the north.
A celebrated rural community that encompasses innumerable pastoral landscapes, Northumberland County provides a perfect balance of urban and rural living. With a combined population of 81,000, its ideal location between Toronto and Kingston is a great area for families, retired couples and individuals.
Brighton, Cobourg, Colborne, Grafton, Port Hope, Rice Lake and Trent Hills all offer peaceful living with historic flavour. Northumberland County has so much to offer to its residents, yet remains one of Ontario’s best kept secrets.
Offering trails that run through forests, picturesque waterways and abandoned rail lines for exploring, it’s a beautiful place in Ontario for a seasonal home or an area to put down your roots. I invite you to Leave the hustle and bustle of the city for the more peaceful, charming life in Northumberland County.
