I was on a fleeting visit to Coonoor and at the way end of the trip was told by a friend in Coonoor that I must see a cheese making factory and home stay and meet the gentleman running it. It was quite late in the evening and I called him and asked him whether I could come to see... More

Absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The cottages are very comfortable and the place is very quiet. The cheese making process is very interesting and the hosts, Mansoor and Tina are very courteous and welcoming! The place is a bit away (2km) from the main market so you would want to carry medicines, snacks and other essentials.

We had one of our most cherished holiday here. We were 6 adults+5 kids and we had booked two cottages. We not only loved the stay @ ACRES-WILD but planning another trip soon. The view and location amid Nilgiri hills is breathtaking. Kids ran around the farm, read books sitting in the b'ful gazebo, played pool and foosball. The key... More

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
