Visited from 03 to 05 May. The drive up from Siliguri is fascinating with hairpin bends and swirling clouds. The driver, Manoj, is a cheerful lad, full of local knowledge and a chatterbox to boot. It was a great experience to meet my former war CO after all these years and relive our memories of '71. He has a priceless... More

If you are looking for malls, coffee shops, spa, gym, resort like amenities and constant man made hot spots to keep you stimulated, this might not be your kind of place. But if you want to jump up and catch the stars by night light, hear the birds chirp, spend some quite moments sitting, relaxing, eating, trekking and just being,... More

If it's museums, galleries, monuments and night life you are after, this may not be the place for you. However, if it's a warm (perhaps literally) welcome, great hospitality, good comfort, peace and tranquility, with fabulous views (weather permitting!) and opportunities for delightful walks and treks, this is certainly the place for you. We did a fair amount of walking... More

Samthar Farm house,which I would describe is a heritage property,in West Bengal is in a beautiful valley offering some wonderful treks. We were exceptionally well looked after by a wonderful staff team who really paid attention to the details. They brought us bed tea in the morning and hot water bottles at night. After a day's hiking they even brought... More

Samthar farm house leaves you with impressions, experiences and the feeling of warmth and well being to last you a lifetime. That being said, it took us only a few hours away before we started wishing we could go back! Jimmy Singh and his team make you feel at home, like members of their family. They did everything they could... More

Samthar Farmhouse located in North Bengal is an absolutely calm and quite place free from the buzz of Darjeeling and Kalimpong. Retd Gen. Jimmy Singh has very tastefully done up the cottages and rooms at the Samthar Farm House with great views of the mountains. I enjoyed the food preparation by the chef Mrs. Tara from the wide spread breakfast... More

Our group had the most wonderful time at The Farmhouse, thanks to the excellent hospitality of Gen. Jimmy Singh and staff. The rooms are delightfully appointed with very attractive views of the garden and the mountains. We enjoyed Tara's very tasty meals and early morning cup of tea. It was very hard to say good bye, but we hope to... More

The Farm House is built of wood in style and in syn with the setting. We relaxed the 3 days going for walks and enjoying the rustic setting. Food served... More
