truly an unforgettable experience ... the calm rustic nature of the place, amazing night sky, the bison sightings all combined for some life long memories.. congrats to Mr.Babu and his team for the lovely hospitality. For sure would come back with family and recommend to my friends also.

Definitely one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. If you want to stay away from City Life, this would be a place more than you can ever ask for. The pictures that I took would speak louder than words. Kodai town is crowded during weekends. All you really need is this place.

Located in scenic surroundings, the cottage is exactly as depicted in the photos here. We had a very pleasant stay at Ampthill Downs. Perfect for 6 (though we were 7). The caretaker's family took good care of us, and we were served delicious, simple meals. Any extra snacks ordered are chargeable. Bath water is made available on request. Its a good idea to pack up some snacks, fruits, breads etc from Kodaikanal before heading here. Cottages are maintained well, mostly neat and clean, though some more effort could have been spared in airing out the extra mattresses/blankets, which were a bit dusty. Nature enthusiasts can spot bisons, and many different kinds of birds. Long leisurely walks are the best way to spend time around here. The village, which is 10 minutes walking distance away is well stocked with a medical store, general stores, and local restaurant, though we didn't need any of it. No ATM though, so carry all the cash you might need. We'd love to go back there for a stay again.

Very calm and beautiful place to stay for one or two nights. We were a group of 7 men and we booked the whole cottage so we used both the bed rooms. The ambiance was neat and clean. the dining area is little away from your room and they serve very tasty south-indian veg and non vegetarian foods all day. Campfire is very worthy and it will last for more than 5 hours if you care it properly. A last 0.5 km to the resort was off-road and most of sedans/hatch backs will make it if you drive carefully. We had a Scorpio which did it with ease... Very friendly staff and the owner Mr. Babu Cherian was really really helpful throughout. You have a lot of lawn area where you can play your interested sport. They too offer some sports kit like cricket bat, stumps, playing cards etc.. No Wifi or TV, but you get Airtel, BSNL and Vodafone mobile signals.. Their dinner special Barbeque chicken is not cooked from a proper BBQ stove and just cooked with the help of the Camp Fire and so you do not get the exact taste of BBQ. So think before you order it. I suggest Mr.Babu to care about the way BBQ is cooked and also to improve the serving quantity per head... Hoping to come again soon...

As a full time world traveler who never leave reviews I decided to do leave one in this case, as it is one of the nicest places I stayed in around the world. Perfect balance between; wild and isolated place in the middle of prime nature - and basic comforts. This is not just one more guest house with nice view it is a large cottage in a beautiful valley, not just a small house in the middle of a village, when you open your door all you will see around you is nature. With an awesome outdoor fire-pit and large indoor open fireplace you feel as close to nature as in wild camping but have more than just the basic comfort.
