“Relaxing stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Really enjoyed Gamcha.
The drive out there from KTM was interesting; through the city then things thinned out a bit. We passed lots of brick works, lots of chicken houses, lots of fields.
Gamcha is a Danish owned working farm with 3 rooms in a renovated 90 year old Rana house. We were the only ones there so had the whole place to ourselves. It is beautiful out there- it's warm, it's clean and the water is hot (important feature post trek).
We had a tour of the property and spend the next couple of days eating lots of fresh salads, fruit and generally wholesome food. The two women who cooked and brought us our meals were friendly. They will also do laundry at a price to be negotiated (very good value). The assistant manager was overly attentive. There's a gardener, the gardeners extended family, and cows and goats wandering around the garden throughout the day. Lots of birdlife, including 3 owls- a barn one and 2 little screechy ones!
Very comfortable place- the bed and the soft white sheets were heavenly. I sleep like a log both nights, falling asleep to the sounds of the owls- who knew that they made so much noise??? Who...hoo- get it? The electricity is patchy, the wifi is even patchier but who cares?
I'd recommend it. It would be particularly good if you were a big family or if you were a group of friends as you could rent all 3 rooms.

This organic farmhouse is a great place to stay. It is an original Newari house, with small sleeping rooms in the upper floor and a bathroom on a separate building. It was nicely decorated and all clean.
The staff was so friendly, and they prepared the best food we had on our trip. It was so delicious and with good spices.
There is a nice garden around you can visit, and see all the different flowers and vegetables grow. There is also a pond just in front of the terrace.
For me, the only negative point was the bathroom not being in the house. There are many animals in the garden, therefore I would not want to walk to the bathroom at night.

I have stayed in this place for about a week and had the best breakfasts of my whole life. (I am German and serious about this !) The general accommodation is on the quality of a Boutique hotel. A completely remodelled traditional farm house by the previous owner say for the low ceilings in some places.
All the food ( except pasta) is produced on - site that includes the honey, ice cream and bread and is completely made to choice. Try the salads with the special pesto !!!

There is really nothing to add but to say it is very cheap too and you HAVE to check it out even if you totally not interested in organic farming.
PS: If you expect A/C in Nepal you're in the wrong country anyway...

JUST A SHORT DRIVE AWAY from Kathmandu, down a wonderfully smooth road beyond New Thimi, is situated a “little paradise on earth”,’ Sobogaard’s Gamcha Organic farm in Gamcha Village, Bhaktapur.

Coming through the farm gates, you feel as though you have entered a different world. An Old Red and White Rana house stands proudly overlooking the lush green farm premises. A Moo-ing cows, rooster cock-a-doodle-doo, naa-ing goat, hear tweeting birds and the ribbit-ing frog in the evening. Apart from this occasional airplane that flies by the Gamcha farm looks, sounds, smells, and feels natural and healthy.

In addition to the Rana style house, the farm has smaller typical hillside houses. One house contains a small office and living quarters for the residential staff. Around the backside of the main building is the farm’s guesthouse, which accommodates ten-twelve visitors at a time (although up to fifteen have stayed there).

Step into the guesthouse and you immediately notice how cool it is inside. As your eyes adjust from the bright outdoors, you notice the colorful floor tiles and rugs. The indoor climate is very pleasant in the summer time ¬ but this doesn’t mean you need to be from the North Pole to enjoy your stay in the winter. Though chilly in the cold months, a gas heater is lit inside and a wood fire is made outside the house, each of which warms things up significantly. A peek into the refrigerator in the kitchenette (all major cooking is done in a separate building) reveals some essentials for midnight snackers: beer, cheese, jams, bread, and pesto sauce. The guesthouse is simple and true to the style of a village house. Clay floors add to its authenticity. The bedrooms are up wooden stairs. A Van Gogh Painting decorates the walls, but to enjoy the ultimate picturesque view, just look out the windows onto the farm and surrounding areas. A massive bathroom is located outside the guesthouse, well equipped, and well lit.
