Dad has always wanted to holiday in Coonoor and his 60th birthday seemed like the perfect occasion. We chose Acres Wild because we had read plenty about it. So glad we did because Mansoor and Tina were such great hosts. They'd host us for breakfast and dinner on most days during our stay and we had such fun conversations. They...

We had a relaxing time during our stay there. My kid bonded with Spotty, the farm dog and was very sad to leave her behind. We the adults enjoyed the simple yet delicious meals. The cheese course was a thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening experience.

A wonderful place for a quiet and relaxing holiday. Away from the chaos that Ooty has come to be. The staff is very helpful and courteous. We found the stay enjoyable and relaxing. By far the best farm-stay experience we've had.

We stayed for four nights at the Haloumi cottage, it was a quaint 2 bedroom place with fantastic views. There is no TV and internet though, what a welcome relief! Mansoor and Tina Khan are great hosts, one must also hear Mansoor speak about his book, a really interesting theory and the book is a worthy read. The food is...

What you will take back from a stay in Acres Wild, other than the delicious cheeses of course, are the deep conversations with Mansoor and Tina, and long silences while living in the midst of nature. Mansoor and Tina personally ensure that the guests are well looked after. The story of how they moved away from the city to start...

Though known for their cheese making, Acres wild has many more delights. Firstly the Mansoor and Tina made us feel right at home. The cottages are quaint but very comfortable. Our children loved the open space and the freedom to move around on the farm. The food is simple but tasty and wholesome especially the fresh ricotta and guava jam...

“Choose a cottage closer to main dining area unless you like a steep walk. Haloumi and Cheddar are the closest.”
