We stayed two nights in December 2016. The room was clean and comfortable. The host was super welcoming. He advised us and drove us around several times. He even waited for us one evening when we came back later than expected. I highly recommand it !

The property here was wonderful ... nice and relaxing. The host, Cyriac, was a charming man and gave me a delightful tour of the grounds. I think every tree, bush, and plant on the grounds produced either fruit, vegetable, or some sort of herb, including several ayurvedic herbs. Cyriac tells me he is a farmer, and he took obvious pride...

It was a fantastic experience we had at Pepper County at Thekkady in April. I was with my wife and two daughters and we had a great time. We had a very warm welcome from Mrs & Mr Cyriac and both were amazing hosts, friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spacious and very clean and the food was very tasty....

We had a bit fiery welcome due to miscommunication but soon air got settled with intervention of family members! The best part of the property is plantation walk and everyone loved it. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and our group of 13+2 had a good time. Only change i wish is to extend check-out time which is before 10AM.

We recently spent a couple of nights here. The owner is very proud to take you round his property and explain the spices growing. Our room was in a new block, very spacious airy and modern with a balcony overlooking the plantation. It's a personal view, but I think showcasing the spices grown on the plantation in the evening meal...

After 2 nights at Pepper County we wish we could stay longer! Cyriac and Dolly (the owners) are exceptionally welcoming and the property is lovely. On arrival we were shown to our room which was a spacious double with large en suite (with a very good powerful shower) which opened up onto a balcony overlooking a wooded area. The room...
