We 4 friends took a road trip to get away from crowded Bangalore! We heard about Mansoor Khan's farm stay just by chance when he visited Bangalore & addressed the Rotary Bangalore team on his new book, "The Third Curve"...Mansoor & Family are living an idyllic life in the lush green forested hills of Coonoor! Its rare to come across... More

We spent a day with Mansoor and Tina in their paradise atop the Nilgiris in May this year, admiring and living their dream with them.. They were warm and wonderful hosts and made us feel very much at home.. The property is absolutely lovely.. Couldn't ask for a better weekend getaway!

Connoor is a place of views, and Acres Wild is only tops it all with wonderful views. But thats not what I recommend this place for. Its the warmth and love expressed by the owners that the stay becomes memorable. Acres wild is place where you'd go for a relaxed outing with reading, strolls and cheese making along all the... More

Acres Wild is the kind of place you do not want to leave in a hurry. With clouds literally drifting into your cottage and the beautiful valley shrouded in mist, this farm is right out of a fairy tale. The location is absolutely perfect - on top of a hill overlooking a valley and more hills across it. The cottages... More

Absolutely refreshing stay at a farm with well designed spacious cottages, homely food, and a very modest and interesting host to say the least. Eco-friendly design, farm made cheese, friendly staff and breathtaking views define this home stay. We will be back to stay at this place again .. very soon.

If you need to relax and retrospect and run away from city life this is where you should go. A few days here are energizing and relaxing. Good homely food and nice treks around this property make you feel healthy again. Good hosts and perfect location ..nothing can get better than this

Everyone has a dream of retiring and settling quietly in the hills away from the noise of the city life. However not everyone has been able to give up their comfort zone and do so. Now here is a famous Bollywood director who after tasting huge success has done just that by giving up everything and settling in the nilgiri... More

This is another experience in holidaying. Its a very fresh idea of sorts. To live and experience a Farm that makes cheese. I mean in India , its still a novelty. Its a delight to understand the cheese making. For me, I was toying with the idea to buy cheese and carry it home. And I managed to do it... More

We went to acre wild not knowing what to expect...we'd booked purely on a hunch. cheese making, home stay sounded extremely interesting. The moment we reached we realised we made the right decision. The location of the home stay was absolutely pristine. We stayed at the Cheddar cottage that was a bit of a walk down from the main area,... More
