We enjoyed the personal tour of the plantation by the owner, and watching the pepper being harvested and dried on the grounds. The food was delicious and the owner accommodated my gluten intolerance. This was close to the elephant center, where we did a ride, and another guest got a "trunk shower". On our second day we relaxed on the... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights as part of our tour around Kerala. Our rooms were spacious and clean and the staff were most helpful. We enjoyed all the meals we had there and you could clearly see the kitchen always a good sign. We would have like to have stayed a bit longer as there was lots to do... More

There is no question that Pepper County is a beautiful and well situated place to stay. It is surrounded by spice gardens and the local town is a few minutes drive away. There is no question also that Mr Cyriac is a well meaning host and his tour around the spice garden is very interesting. But I think his ambition... More

Quiet and relaxing homestay in the middle of a pepper plantation. Great breakfasts, clean rooms and stable wifi (for India). Very scenic and peaceful. Very friendly owner who have a personal tour of the plantation which was better than the paid one.

WE found Pepper County both friendly and very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and most of them have balconies overlooking the spice groves. The owners are very friendly and the meals were excellent. The servings are large and the use of spices moderate by Indian standards. We would certainly stay there again.

We stayed 2 nights in the newly built upper apartment at Pepper County. The owner was very informative about what he grew (cardamon, pepper, various fruit and coconuts. We enjoyed watching the many varieties of birds from our balcony. We had lunch and breakfast which were served by very friendly staff. The owner was a bit too attentive at times... More

As soon as we set foot in Pepper County homestay we felt totally at home. The owner welcomed us as if we were family, and clearly enjoys what he does. The wifi wasn't working at first, and he went to great lengths to fix it, then we could send pictures of the stunning location back home! Sadly both my dad... More

We travelled with friends and had two rooms with joint balcony. The views across the spice plantation are great and a highlight of our visit was a conducted tour of the growing area, led by our host. He was keen to raise money to support an orphanage in the local town and we were happy to contribute. He might like... More
