Guest Info

A Working Farm

Fossil Beach Farm is a working farm. We have cattle that may be in the area, as well as opossums (seen mostly at night), deer, Canadian geese, eagles, and many other types of birds. Please respect the wildlife both on and off the property.

Your Safety

The farm sits on high bank waterfront, please do not go close to the edge of the bank and stay behind fences. You will get hurt if you fall down the bank. Please use the marked beach access. Fossil Beach Farm is not responsible for any injuries that result for not following these directions.

Please follow the signs on the property, if it says do not enter it means there is a danger.

Our Pet Policy

As much as we love animals our heard of cattle do not. To allow pets in our tents we require a cleaning fee of 20 per night. We also request that dogs be kept in a crate while in the tent and on a leash on the property. The beach directly in front is off leash but please keep in mind the many birds and wild life. Pets are only allowed in our Straddie Glamping Tent.​ The pet fee needs to be added as an extra at time of booking.


Smoking is only allowed in a designated area near the cidery building. Smoking is prohibited around tents, or any other area. Hornby is often in extreme fire hazard rating in the summer months.
