Situated in the erstwhile summer colonial capital, Northwood Cottage is a quaint heritage cottage, that takes you back in time. Built in 1916, the retreat is set amidst deodar trees, at a 20-minute drive away from the heart of Shimla. The vintage furnishings, artifacts, and décor weave tales of time past.

Swathed by cedar, rhododendron, fir and Himalayan oak trees, the state capital of Himachal Pradesh is one of the most popular hill stations of India.

Here, you can go for a nature walk, fishing, golfing, ice-skating, trekking, skiing, adventure sports and much more. Shop till you drop at The Mall and buy jewelry, embroidered shawls, and garments and take away souvenirs for your loved ones. Or take a trip to Tatta Pani, 55 kilometers from the main city, where you shall find hot sulfur sp
