Very calm and beautiful place to stay for one or two nights. We were a group of 7 men and we booked the whole cottage so we used both the bed rooms. The ambiance was neat and clean. the dining area is little away from your room and they serve very tasty south-indian veg and non vegetarian foods all day....

Location - 5/5 - The location was very good. We could find mountains, farm lands, pine trees and a small lake very near to this place. My kids had ample place to run around, play cricket and shuttle. We even tried cycling but found it a little difficult. We could spot a few wild animals too. Reaching the place -...

What an outstanding holiday. A quiet place far away from the tourist traps one normally encounters in every hill station. Basic, very roomy and very comfortable rooms with a fire places for toasty evenings. Beautiful grounds and the night sky is amazing. They do you a bonfire on request. Good home cooked meals. Great treks and walks. Good quality time...

I came to know about this place in Trip Advisor and booked a room for our stay seeing the positive reviews/ratings for this property. We prefer to stay in resorts/cottages that are not crowded and also away from city/towns. I think a lot has changed since the last review for this property, which was on 2-April-2014. Location = 5/5 Location...

It is difficult to explain the beauty of Ampthill Downs in words. It is something which one has to experience first hand.
