The Errington / Coombs area is an interesting mix of residential homes on acreages growing next to working farms.
This area is provided a stunning backdrop by the magnificent snow-capped peaks of adjacent Mount Arrowsmith. You could live on your private natural oasis, yet be 10 minutes away from Parksville or Qualicum Beach. Families sometimes live here and commute the 20 - 30 minutes to their city jobs in Nanaimo.
Many families have horses and can be seen trotting along roadways on their way to nearby trails. Several boarding stables service the nearby communities.
Englishman River and Little Qualicum River provincial parks are here and boast impressive waterfalls seen from the many walking trails.
Two of the most favorite tourist destinations in all of BC are here: namely, Cathedral Grove and the Goats on the Roof market. Both can be quite busy in the summer months and are best to visit in the earlier part of the morning. The West Coast of Vancouver Island, including Tofino, Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim National Park are under a 2 hour drive.
If you want a rural area to live in that is surrounded by nature yet close still to Town, the Coombs Errington area is a very good option for you to consider.
