What I have always loved about B&B's is the uniquenss and 'personal' touch. Over the years i've stayed at dozens, and Kidston is one of the best I have ever encountered. The house is overflowing with character and if that is not enough Janet is amazing. She entertained us for hours with stories of her family's history (including some ghost...

Janet Kidston is not your ordinary innkeeper! Opening the doors of her 1822 farmhouse to travellers, she opens the history book of the Kidston family and the land they have owned for generations.

There is so much history in Halifax it is nice to stay somewhere that brings that history alive. The house, the location and Janet's easy going story telling make this B & B out of the ordinary. If you are looking for the real Halifax with it's proud history I'll find it here.

A good place to stay if you want to be close to Halifax. Excellent value for the price with very comfortable and clean room, and good breakfast. Jane, the owner, loves to tell stories of her family every morning and she showed us a lot of old artifacts that the family has been keeping in the house for years.

Janet is the most amazing person and a wonder hostess. She knows everything about this home as it has been in her family since 1825. She regaled us with so many stories and back up each story with photos and artifacts. It truly was as if we stepped into a living museum. And we saw baby deer just outside our...
