serene, pure and overwhelmingly relaxing that's what ampthill farm stay is..it worth the 39 km journey from proper kodaikanal...caretaker uncle and aunty made it home away from home...only improvement I can suggest is use of CFL lights instead of bulbs...it would match with the ambiance and be more eco friendly...

The trek to the lake and cool serene surroundings is splendid and out of the storybooks we read in our childhood days. The drive through the... More

Ampthill Farm Stay is a cozy nook reminiscent of the Enid Blyton books that we grew up with. You enter through a muddy path and make your way to the enchanting, tile roofed, English-style cottage located in the shade of the pine and sholas trees. The cottage chimneys stand out against the verdant green backdrop. In front of the cottage... More
