A very unusual and quirky cottage! Staying there felt like a great adventure, and one could picture it situated on the hills of northern India. It had a great feel-good atmosphere even in January, and would be even more magical in better weather. Loved the wooded area at the back. Overall Rating: 4 Stars

We loved the Indian Summer House and have already recommended it to friends.

But we will definately be back - we loved it!!! Overall Rating: 5 Stars
