Escape to the peace and tranquillity of Tipperary, nestled amidst lush coffee bushes on the Shevaroy hills. We have opened up our ancestral plantation home and offer a glimpse into the planter’s life. Tipperary is the perfect place to unwind and take in all that nature has to offer. The luxurious estate is located at the entrance of a working coffee farm and is set on top of a 70 acre working coffee farm. There are also Jackfruit trees, avocado, banana, wild turmeric and peppers which can be consumed in season. Complimentary Coffee (or Chai) from the farm will be provided twice a day. The accommodation is comfortable, the cuisine home cooked and includes a taste of local food. There are several food options 5-10 minute drive away. The caretaker can also buy food from any of the restaurants mentioned. There are copy of menus available. The property is only 30 minutes from Salem and 5 minutes from Yercaud town yet private.
Yercaud- “Yeri-Caud” a smart man’s “Lake-forest” or the “poor-man’s” no, make that “smart-man’s” ooty, Yercaud is how the colonial British empire got around to saying “Yericaud” Tamil for “Lake-forest”, now you can’t go wrong with a place that has a lake and a forest in its name for a weekend trail. Spread over 383 Sq KM in the Eastern Ghats which is generally dry and feature short and rocky hills, Yercaud is a delightful aberration lined with quaint villages, paddy fields, coffee and pepper plantations, succulent orange trees on pathways proving an enchanting trail for cyclists allowing a sense of serenity. Yercaud is lot less crowded than Ooty or Kodaikanal and hence one barely bumps into the randy tourist but more so will delight in a local’s delicious version of “Kuzhi Paniyaram” and perhaps chat up on its rich history of stone-age implements that have been unearthed from the Sheveroy Hills.
