What do you look for in a peaceful holiday is all here? Away from the crowd, close to Nature, full of panoramic views is this place. Sleep, Relax, Run, Read, Meditate, you can do everything and more than all that, if you don't want to do anything, that's the best you get here. Auks Farm, would love to come back soon.
Had visited Auks farm with a bunch of friends. It was a wonderful experience. What I really like about the place is the overall feeling of being close to nature with lot of greenery and beautiful mountains. I enjoyed the hospitality of KK and Sush, very friendly environment, some very nice food and a comfortable stay. We were also able to visit a tea garden, which was near by and another great experience.
Where do I start ...a beautiful backdrop with mountains , moon and meadows. Cosy rooms with lovely view of wild plants and flowers , butterflies & guava tea . Evenings with bonfire and banana wine ( home made by the host ) with glowing Kalimpong as a view , delicious food made from home grown Vegetables , from chicken momo to bok Choy sautéed in garlic to local pork masala - all made with so much of thought and love . Yet to add an improvement (as a caveat to all the positives above), the place can keep provision for mineral water in addition to the spring water kept for drinking. Our city tummies bore a little brunt from the regular consumption of only spring water for 3 days (by the time, we left for the next destination of ours). Overall, high recommendation for Auks Farm
Auks Farm’s tag line “A dream at a time” is very much true and after a wonderful stay, it’s like a dream come true. Lovely hosts who left their jobs at Gurgaon to return to their hometown and developed such a lovely farm with utmost care and detailed thinking. They have an honest approach to serve to ensure comfort and enjoyment of their customers. The highlight of the farm is its relaxed and serene atmosphere. Food is very fresh, tasty and homely. Rooms and toilets are clean and comfortable. Charges are very reasonable. Do buy the homemade soaps made with natural ingredients. I would look forward towards some recreational activities by hosts when I visit next which I will surely do.
We (me and my husband) stayed at Auks Farm for 2 days in this December. We came to know about this lovely place in Soreng while searching for off beat places near Darjeeling. After seeing the photos of the property we immediately decided to stay their. Called the owner Sushmita and booked it for our christmas holiday. We have hired a bike from Darjeeling to reach Soreng. One can easily go there by car also. Private or shared car facility can be arranged from the farm. After reaching there the calmness of the place took my heart. It's a lovely place right in the nature's lap. The rooms, toilets are very clean and you will get all the modern amenities in the rooms. There are four rooms. One four occupancy and others are 2 occupancy. The food is home cooked and awesome. All the vegetables are produced in their own farm. The owners are very warm and friendly. Sushmita and her husband KK never let us get bored. Their hospitality will make one to think of extending the stay. The evening bonfire, chit-chats, moonlit night, never-ending beauty of the nature was mesmerising. We wanted to stay their forever.…
Nestled amidst the bountiful hills, Auks Farm is an honest, humble abode for those seeking some peace and quiet. We stayed there for 4 nights including new year s eve, and had a great time. There is this raw, rustic charm to the place which is very rejuvenating. However, all that takes a second spot when it comes to hospitality. Finger licking home cooked food with the freshest possible ingredients (farm grown veggies!!), the hosts go an extra mile to make you comfortable. There was a pottery session, bonfires on chilly winter nights, a barbecue lunch under the sun, and all of us made momos together one evening.. We’re definitely going back there, for the feel, the food, and above all the friends who care.
We (2 adults and 2 children) stayed in Auks Farm on 20th October. It was really a dream come true. This is a home stay where you are really at peace with yourself. Go there once and fall in love with Auks Farm. As the hosts Sushmita and Kalyan puts it aptly, come here to do nothing. The place is amazingly beautiful, with all modern facilities, very well maintained and immaculately clean. Add to it the warmth and wonderful hospitality of the hosts and the cooking skills of Sushmita and you are in for a dream vacation. really ! The place is about 45 Km from Kalimpong, at a height of about 5000 feet or so. Lovely surroundings -- see the Kalimpong lights in the night, enjoy the walks through the woods, explore the nearby villages and read from the impressive book collection -- it could not be better than this if you want to escape the madness of the local tourist spots and just want to relax and re-invent yourself. I wish we had planned for a few more days here. Hope to go back again, soon ! Thanks Sushmita and Kalyan !…
Myself and my partner stayed several nights at Auks farm in the late summer of 2016 during the final leg of our trip to India. We were made to feel most welcome by Sushmita and her husband. The food was fresh and delicious and their young helper around the property, Raj, was an absolute delight. We visited the local Tibetan monasteries and explored the local area. Though remote, we had everything we needed. The hosts even went to great lengths to return my camera, via a cousin in Perth, Australia, which I had left in the car after a rush to the airport after a landslide had blocked the road and caused delays. We wish you all the best and I am very sorry for taking over a year to leave a review! Kindest regards, Joe and Kara
Really good place to stay. We had booked two cottages amongst 5 of us. The place is located in between hills surrounded by greenery all around. It's just an awesome place to stay far from the crowd. You need to carry essentials as it's difficult to get anything around. The food prepared by the owners was also very good and we enjoyed our stay here to the core.
I stayed here with my family for three glorious days and it was an exceptional experience. Our hosts Ashish and Bijaya were wonderful, and the food they prepared was seriously the best that we had during our three weeks in India. And what a relaxing place! We did nothing but chill, eat and take in the gorgeous views. Sushmita, who handled the booking, was phenomenal as well. Thanks so much Sushmita, Ashish, and Bijaya for everything - you made our stay at Auks Farm unforgettable.
