This farmhouse is situated in an excellent location surrounded by the Harrison Malayalam tea plantation. It's a scenic property with water frontage. All sorts of crops like cardamom, pepper, capsicum, Chinese orange, passion fruit, mango, papapaya, jackfruit, plantain, tapioca to name a few are grown in the property. It's an ideal place to soak in the visual delight in solitude....

Location very far off......The property not worth for the travel we do. Nothing more to see. Facilities are very limited. Only a river, though they are telling fishing not much water for fishing. No scenic beauty like we feel in any high range location. Just like a highway side location..... K T MATHEW

A nice, basic getaway located about 20kms from Thekkady (Periyar National Park). A quiet drive through green tea estates gets one to the resort located in the valley on the banks of the Periyar (?) river. Lovely walks down to the river, which has a quaint bridge across it accessing views both up and down-stream; treks down the quiet road...

An ideal weekend getaway, getting there (driving down) is in itself a pleasure. The fresh whiff of nature and sights of greenery around welcomes you to this beautiful resort in the woods. It's a private place, perfect to get together with your close buddies, family friends or just family. You get a first hand experience of a farmer, with fruit...
