In the shadow of the Himalayas lies The Homestead, a place of peace and tranquillity, situated in the heart of the Terai, 250 kms from Delhi, 70 kms from Nainital, in the vicinity of Corbett National Park.

A farm with orchards of luscious mangoes and litchies and the home of Bunny and Amu Puri, was developed in 1950 by Bunny's parents Inder and Sheila. He was a keen gardener and nature lover and he fell in love with the beauty of the place in the Himalayan foothills andfounded in1952 what is now The Homestead at Corbett Country.

This area was then thick forest, grassland and swamp, teeming with wild life - tigers, elephants, and herds of deer. Slowly the land was cleared and farming began. Foralmost 15 years the pioneering days were spent living in mud huts with thatched roofs and oil lamps. Life was fishing, shikar, campfires and gazing at the stars, dreaming of what was beyond!

Today The Homestead where Bunny and Amu live is a comfortable, modern home stay in a beautiful garden with ancient trees and climbing creepers ablaze with colour, a spacious abode which still has a cosy, relaxed ambience and a magical quality where time simply disappears. It is all waiting for you to join in!
