First and foremost , its a great effort by Mr Khan to create this wonderful farm. One can immediately make out, without being acquainted with him, that this farm is his his life and passion. Overtime he must have decided to share his creation with others - good effort but if feel he missed out certain key areas - The... More

There is the risk of a review of Acres Wild turning out to be reminiscing about the enchanting owners of the property. They are indeed the USP of Acres Wild Cheese Farm. The property comprises of cottages which are unique in the experience they provide. We happened to stay in the Cheddar House which is the farthest from the common... More

This was our first farm stay experience, and was just floored. About the host Mansoor was an absolutely wonderful host, made us feel completely at home. Down to earth and one of the most intellectual persons i have come across. He made it a point to spend time with us during meals and made us feel comfortable. I really enjoyed... More

Previous stays were at the company guesthouse...with some great food and views. This time we picked this place based on reviews online and on the lonely planet magazine. Interacted with Mansoor via mails... More

Mansoor and Tina are extremely gracious hosts and make you feel right at home. Acres Wild is on the valley slope and the entire property gives stunning views of the hilly magnificence of the Nilgiris. The cottages are done very tastefully and are ideal for relaxation. We stayed at the Colby and found it to be just the ideal home... More

We were stunned by the beauty of this place from the moment we got out of the rickshaw at the top of the hill. The farm is so beautiful! We booked for 2 nights but ended up staying a third (luckily the room was available!) Mansoor and Tina were helpful, as were their staff. Raja, the chef cooked some of... More

cheese-eating's my weakness, so cheese-making was the next natural step...finding the acres wild experience was the fulfilment.... Coonoor itself is nothing but beautiful mountains, peaceful valleys, tea estates, quiet away from the maddening crowds of 'hill stations', and a major (cheese)slice of that lies nestled inside the cozy arms of Acres Wild...a few Km. out of coonoor, on a tea...

Highly recommend as a weekend gateway from Bangalore, you will love the cottages and the company of legendary Bollywood director. It was nice discussing the "third Curve" his book over the dinner. The cottages are equipped with almost every household stuffs, and you can even cook by yourself. Good place to learn the cheese making and bird watching. Just come... More

It was an amazing experience visiting Coonoor and staying at Acres Wild. Me and Jayendra both enjoyed the stay and the hospitality conferred upon us by Mansoor and Tina. This is a place where one would visit to recoil and be with oneself. The valley in front of the cottages is lush green, full of clean breeze that sparkles blue.... More
