Nestled in the Nilgiri Mountains at 8,000ft, just below Doddabetta Peak on 1.5 acres, this self-catering five bedroom house with porches, picnic area and a fireplace is a peaceful getaway.

Surrounded by national reserve forests and tea plantations, the view is stunning. Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded at the same time. You get the entire house to yourself, but share the garden and outdoors with other guests.

L-ispazju
Just 7 kilometers outside of Ooty town, this property is close to all the major tourist highlights but is secluded and remote at the same time. Away from the hustle and bustle of Ooty town, Stumpfields is a peaceful, family-friendly retreat, overlooking tea estates, wild forest, and mountain ridges. Parties, loud music and excessive drinking are not welcome at our home. Guests are asked to respect the quiet hours from 10 pm to 8am. Guests will have exclusive access to the entire house, patio, and picnic table. We have staff here during the day to support guests, and at night, they are only a phone call away should there be any concerns.

We have beautifully equipped kitchens so you can cook your own food. However, we understand not everyone wants to cook on their vacation so you can "BOOK A COOK," (see details in house manual).

We urge only resilient, nature-loving, independent, resourceful, adventuresome people to book a holiday here. Its a wild and steep terrain, and at night you will not hear the noise of traffic, but rather the sound of wind in the trees, owls in the dark, rain on the roofs, bird and animal calls. While the evenings may have firelight, candles and electricity, once the lights are out, it will be pitch dark all around. When skies are clear the stars and moon are perhaps the most beautiful you will ever see. Its something about being in the mountains 8,000 ft high, with no pollution covering the atmosphere. Other times of the year, especially in the monsoon, it's just incredibly dark. The mountains of Ooty are also very cool year round, especially at night. While the indoors are warm and cozy, the mountain air outside is brisk! For those who want room service, wifi, TV's, a restaurant, and 24-hour staff service we recommend you book a hotel in the town of Ooty. Come here ready to unplug from emails and the internet, TV's and movies, and try curling up by the open fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Let your body and mind re-set and re-charge as you decompress and let the nature around you remind you there is a different way to live.

Aċċess għall-klijenti
We have a 300 meter, 8 ft wide steep driveway winding from the village of Buttercombai up to our house at the top of the mountain All the steepest parts are paved with concrete pavers, and the rest is a dirt track. All cars can make it up our driveway. You need to be a fairly competent driver to navigate the drive. If you are not confident, you can park down on the road and hike in. We will not pick you up and drive you back and forth to the house and road. Guests are welcome to walk through the gardens, play on the grass lawns, sit at the picnic table in the outdoor stone patio, find a quiet bench overlooking the pasture, wander down to the barn, and explore the property. Stumpfields guests have exclusive rights to the picnic table. Hiking trails through forest and tea estates crisscross the land around Stumpfields. A short walk through the forest brings you to a lovely playground for children at a government tea estate called the Tea Park. This is a new government tourist spot, and as yet is not too crowded or well known. A great place for the view, park benches and a 1 kilometer concrete path loop for hiking.

Ooty, Tamil Nadu, l-Indja

We live in the wilderness, completely secluded with no other houses around, except Stumpfields and Ivy. At the end of our drive, along a main road is a small village where the local tea-pickers reside. You can catch a glimpse of this village from the balcony of the cottage. We are in the middle of a totally undeveloped 10 acre piece of land that is surrounded by and overlooks government reserve forest. Our access to trails, extraordinary views, glimpses of wild animals and wide variety of birds in this high altitude rain forset and peace and solitude make our place unique among the overly commercialized, over crowded tourist hotels and inns in and around Ooty. We take pride in our efforts to protect the environment around our house. We keep our grounds and the surrounding forest and pastures around us clean with absolutely zero litter. We ask that you help us keep it pristine. Look for our kitchen compost site near the stairs in the garden and our trash containers located in the garage.

Mala and Greg moved to Ooty in 2005. They bought land that overlooked mountain ranges and tea plantations and designed and built Stumpfields. Greg and Mala love peace and quiet, love the wilderness and enjoy hiking with their dogs, gardening and designing new projects! Lord of the Rings is their favorite trilogy, classical literature is Mala's favorite genre, while Greg prefers John Grisham. They love choosing veggies from their organic garden, and eating healthy. Greg and Mala have lived and traveled all over the world. They came to India in 2000 in order to help rescue girls under the age of 18 who have been forcibly trafficked into commercial sex exploitation. In 2006 they started an NGO called Freedom Firm. Check it out online if you get the chance! A portion of the income from the vacation rental of all 3 listings, Stumpfields, Bilberry Cottage and Ivy Cottage goes to the work of Freedom Firm. For Mala and Greg their life motto is "do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God"
