Where you’ll be

Coonoor, Tamil Nadu, India

Coonoor is an old hill station with tremendous history. It served as a rehabilitation retreat for the British soldiers during the war due to its temperate climate and extremely clean air.

The town of Bedford which is in walking distance from Royston is a real melting pot. Fresh fruit markets, butchers, farmers markets, seafood merchants and many more traders line the central marketplace. You can find the freshest of food here with local fare to boast.

Coonoor is a sightseer's paradise. Sims Park, Lambs Rock, Dolphin Nose and Highfield Tea Plantation all lie within a stone's throw from the house. The town plays home to every form of religion and from the hill where Royston is based you are able to see a Church, Mosque, Jain Temple, Gurudwara and a number of Hindu Temples.

Within 20 minutes either side of Coonoor lies Ooty and Kotigiri each with their own charm. A little further afield is Nianna Tea Plantation, a 30 minute drive, another HOSPITALITYEXPERT property which we encourage you to visit.

Coonoor is a famous hill station that is 17 km from Ooty in Tamil Nadu, India. It is probably the second most popular hill station in the Nilgiris. The hill station stands at a height of 1839 meters and is known for its great picnic spots and picturesque surroundings. Coonoor is also famous for tea gardens and tea factories.

Coonoor provides the traveler with the panoramic view of the lush green Nilgiri hills, with its ravines, valleys, and waterfalls. Bird watching is a popular pastime in Coonoor, as the area boasts of a large variety of species like cormorants, pipits, thrushes, parakeets, skylarks, Nilgiri verditer, etc. Travelers can take a walk through the tea gardens. There are number of trekking and hiking trails around Coonoor. Travellers can enjoy the exhilarating and unique ride on the toy train that connects Coonoor with Mettupalayam (which Indian Rail spells Metupalaiyam) and Ooty. The trip provides some breathtaking views of the Nilgiri hills in all its natural glory. Though secondary in importance to Ooty, Coonoor offers a more secluded retreat, away from the crowds that throng Ooty. If a quiet, romantic holiday tucked away in the hills amidst fresh air and verdant Nature is what you are looking for, Coonoor is your best bet.

We provide umbrellas for each room to be used during the rainy season, so nothing stops you from exploring the beautiful surroundings.
