Farmstay in Coonoor

This beautifully positioned farm on Coonoor's southeast edge is sustainably run with solar heating, rainwater harvesting and cheese like you’ve never tasted in India from the milk of its own cows. The five large, stylish rooms, in three cottages, include kitchens and fireplaces. Your friendly Mumbaikar hosts are full of ideas for things to do away from the tourist crowds. Book ahead.

It also offers guests-only cheese-making courses (from ₹8000).
