One Partridge Hill- A Hideaway

IMG_2829

One Partridge Hill is built on a hill top in a small village called Satoli. Satoli is a very tiny populated village nestled in the Kumaon Region of Uttrakhand. You can reach this place via Bhimtal taking the road that leads to Almora. One Partridge Hill is not just a homestay, it is a luxury retreat nestled in the lap of nature. This homestay is 330 kms from Delhi and is easy to find if the instructions are followed properly. We booked 2 nights and were satisfied with their hospitality and services. The owners have actually put their sweat and blood in building this property, you easily get to know as soon as you enter the premises. One Partridge Hill makes sure that you get the ultimate comfort and tranquillity without any sense of let down. This is the only property in the vicinity with wheel chair accessibility.

They have 4 rooms, all different from each other and a common living area adjoining the dining room. There is a great positivity in the environment of this village and one can actually breathe fresh air. The rooms are really comfortable and the quality is not compromised anywhere, even the toiletries are top notch, that is what is expected when you pay a good amount for a night. There are not many attractions nearby but you have different trails to follow. Bird watching and trekking will be the most common thing there, but honestly you don’t need anything other than that. The view in the night is spectacular and if you love star gazing, hop on and reach this place immediately.

We were provided the room on the second floor which also had a small private terrace referred as Parakeet. The room had all the basic amenities and is perfect for a couple. The washroom is fitted with modern fittings, 24 hours running water, shower enclosure and solar powered geyser for your hot water requirement. The room is cosy with twin bedding, you can join it and make it into a queen size bed. The balcony provides a stunning view of Almora and it shines in the night, the view is mesmerizing. There are other rooms option to choose from such as:

*Ground Floor- Woodpecker
*First Floor- Jungle Fowl
*First Floor- Whistling Thrush
*Second Floor- Parakeet

    I like the classic wood furniture in the rooms and the beautiful views from the windows. The outside garden is so pretty as well, and I can imagine how quiet the surroundings must be.
