Join us for a unique 3 day culinary experience at Raven’s Nest, where we have turned to the centuries old ways of organic farming and where we use the rays of the sun to cook part of our meals.
Your stay will be at our luxury homestay in Kotagiri - Raven's Nest. This wood floored three bedroom home is laid out on a ten-acre tea garden. You can watch TV from the warmth of your bed and enjoy the scenic hills through the picture windows.
The Nilgiri Hills, known for their aromatic high-altitude teas are also the fruit and vegetable basket of South India. More than half the acreage in the Blue Hills is covered with fields of beetroots, cabbage, potatoes along with indigenous millets and greens. At Raven’s Nest, where we are located, we have turned to the centuries old ways of organic farming and we use the rays of the sun to cook part of our meals.
Join us for a three day, hands-on cooking workshop where we use organic ingredients and the unsophisticated solar oven to cook 2 South Indian breakfasts and 2 dinners.
While not engaged in our cooking sessions you will have ample scope to relax and unwind. You can work out in the mini-gym, curl up with a book from our personal library on the deck or enjoy your tea beneath the pergola. The trampoline, swing and slide make the place very child friendly while older kids and adults can practice basketball, play badminton or putt and chip on the green. You can light up the fireplace on cold winter nights or sit around a bonfire on warmer nights.
You will have access to all common areas of the property - the mini gym, the comfortable lounge with our personal library, the viewing deck or the many outdoor sitouts that offer fabulous views of the hills and tea gardens. You could also take a walk down to our organic garden.
Interaction with guests
Your hosts will be available for interaction through the duration of your stay.
