Ripon Heritage Bungalow is situated amidst the lush green Tea Plantations of Wayanad. The Bungalow is made by the Britishers during 1930 and situated at Rippon close to the Ootty-Calicut highway (15 kms from Kalpetta town). We have 6 Luxury rooms in the Bungalow and having a restaurant with authentic tasty homily food. Ripon Heritage Bungalow is perched in a hill of Western Ghats brings an aura of panoramic view around, spaciously built in the early colonial style of architecture. Taking a trip to a place like this to come closer to nature, then why confine inside a boringly painted walls disconnecting yourself from nature just to sleep in? We bring in the flowers and the birds to accompany you inside the four walls. We offer stunning scenic locations and exclusive hospitality to our guests.

I've had the most wonderful stay at Ripon Heritage Bungalow! If you're traveling long distances, here you will be introduced to Keralas lush nature. The green hills, the winds passing by gently, the crickets singing their song at dawn right in front of my room, will all stay in my heart forever. And Ebin, the owner, with his family, are the most kind-hearted and caring people, one can wish for, to guide you through this overwhelmingly beautiful place on Earth! Food is fresh, varied, and will be adjusted to your needs and desires. My room was clean and quiet, the staff always trying to make me feel at home. Just everyone at Ripon Heritage Bungalow will welcome you with a smile. And, when you leave, I think, you'll wear yours on your lips too, and maybe shine your light a little more than you did before!

I visited the place with my family. The bunglow is surrounded by lush green tea plantation with beautiful view all around. The rooms are very spacious. The hosts Varghesettan and his son Ebin and their colleagues are very welcoming. Food is very tasty and homely. Really a nice place for a relaxed stay. Thanks Varghesettan, Ebin and Akshay for giving us a wonderful weekend.

If anyone wants to experience an excellent hospitality, coupled with delicious food and a cozy stay at a 100 year old british bungalow, you have already arrived at Ripon Heritage Bungalow. My husband directly called Mr. Varghese to book the rooms and he was more than prompt to share all the details along with the beautiful pictures of the property. We decided to book our stay for 2 nights as oppose to 1 night that we were initially thinking of and boy we did not regret doing that. While on the road even before reaching the property, Mr. Varghese was checking on us and after reaching we were greeted by him and his son. They had booked us in their oldest big rooms which had a lovely fireplace. It brought old memories of all the british bungalows that I had stayed as I grew up in Army cantonments. It was like homecoming as the hosts including Mrs. Varghese made us feel so comfortable around serving some excellent homely food with lots of love. They have some great collection of Honey that we bought along with some different variety of Teas. While leaving, we just enquired about a place from where we could get the tea trunk tables and proactively Mr. Varghese gave away a couple of wooden trunks along with couple of plants that my mom in law wanted. Such generous hospitality which goes beyond all expectations is very rare in today's world. A whole hearted heartfelt thanks to you Mr. Varghese, Maam and Ebin. It was the most memorable stays that we have ever had.

Come to a British bungalow that retains the originality of the old This is the world of Varghese Chettan, the most beautiful world, if you want to see the uniqueness of the old, come .here ... The rippon heritage bangalow gives a beautiful view of the good care and brotherhood of Varghese Chettan and his colleagues. Filled with 360 view tea gardens, this place is a rare feast for the eyes... Umma, who has no experience doing more trips, as well as my sister, it was a great world for them ,,
