Ooty: A day at Bethlehem

If Fern Hills Palace reminded me about the gone away royal glory, Glyngarth villa took me to the mountain of serenity. Who doesn't love the peace and silence? I love it and I enjoyed it at this place - that too on a Christmas Day. That's an awesome blend, correct?

People from Kerala might trace this place back to the movie - Summer in Bethlehem. I really wanted to visit this place, when I watched that movie years back. And it happened.
A very different and mixed feeling to stand in front of this place and by the by - I was tweeting the experience live :)
The lunch time was over when we reached the villa. Then decided for a tiny snack time.
Organized, clean and royal dining room
Relax to the core...
Fire place...
Keralites will remember this stair case forever :)
So silent and serene....
To chill
Ani examining each and every items in the room
Adding some sweetness to the evening..
Miles to go before I sleep :)
Always welcoming and wonderful hospitality...
Ready for a small ride...
Time to hit the road again
The cottages....


  1. Hey Anoop
    Myself Chikku here
    Like you said every keralite will remember that place and I was in search of this place from past so many years and found it recently
    I wanted to ask how was your experience at this place and was it to costly and is it nearby the Ooty city?
    I know it's been 4 years since you published the blog I wish I get a reply:)

  2. Hello Chikku, We weren’t staying at this place but visited. Short drive from Ooty and was accurate on Google maps back then. So won’t be a problem to figure out the location today :) In google maps it says permanently closed but I would recommend to try visiting this place if you are in Ooty.
