We had seen it on TV and read about it and finally we were going to be there. Acres Wild. When we arrived we had the most beautiful scenic view as we parked our car and got introduced to the Farm Stay staff and the Man himself Mansoor. Sooner in the day we had Cheesemaking workshop with Tina. Before that,...

The cottage Haloumi House is well designed and comfortable though secluded. The wooden furniture has an old world charm. The lighting is exquisite. The views are magnificent. Interacting with mansoor is a delight. He is an encyclopedia of knowledge and wisdom. The food is freshly cooked and tasty. All in all a unique unforgettable experience.

My family (wife, son and myself) had a lovely three night stay at Acres Wild. I had googled places to stay in Coonoor and was impressed by the website, the reviews as well as my interactions with the owners of Acres Wild, Mansoor and Tina during the scheduling / booking process. We arrived in the early evening, Acres Wild looked...

The stay at acres wild is a real farm stay unlike many other commercial properties of the same type. Our stay at acres wild was an absolutely amazing experience. The location of cottages inside the farm will make one to contact closely with nature (Here in my view 'nature' means more of diverse living species and less of human being...

Staying at Acres Wild was absolutely amazing! What a nice break far away from the hustle and bustle of the city! You can walk around the property and to the neighboring tea plantation. The cottages are very well maintained, super clean and cozy. No TV if you care about that but a fireplace and the sounds from the nature. The...

We had our apprehensions when we saw the approach to the resort. That was all laid to rest once we reached there. Right on the slope of a hill there were three cottages. We had booked the Colby cottage. Met up with Mansoor Khan, the owner and he helped us settle down. The cottage was one room with a kitchen...

Verdant green! Very close proximity to wild life, as promised. Closest to pristine nature! Intimate interaction with the knowledgable Mansoor and charming Tina. The cheese making course was absolutely fab! Great hospitality, would love to go back again.

I am writing this review with mixed feelings. The place, location is good, but somehow we felt the residents/guests are left without any attention. The rooms were old, not so appealing (All are old furniture, utensils). More than that, there is little attention from the caretakers. Dinners were fine with home made food, but i should say the breakfast was...

Me and my wife with our one year old daughter stayed at Colby cottage for two days! The place is very silent. You can feel the solitude . We spotted few bisons and wild rabbit too . The chirp of birds and the squirrels will make ur stay more naturalistic! The cheese and the guava jams they prepared were served...
