Mary Budden Estate provides a glimpse in to living within a Himalayan Forest, situated
In the high mountains of Kumaon next to the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, a haven for Himalayan wildlife and birds. Offering majestic views of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks.
It is named after its last known inhabitant Ms. Mary Budden, a missionary who lived in these hills in the 19th century. Originally brought by Ms. Budden and converted as a school for orphans, it later changed hands and been restored to an ultimate retreat.
Accommodation: Stay at either The Cottage or The Lodge that have 3 exquisitely furnished rooms each and the cottages come with fireplaces, spacious dining and drawing rooms. While The Cottage is the restored heritage building, The Lodge is an interpretation of and an ode to the original cottage.
Dining: Both the cottages come with their own dining rooms, however there are plenty of opportunities to have your meals outdoors. The Wild Cat Brunch is a tribute to the leopard found in the forests and comes with live grills, hot pots and the season’s specials. Garden Lunch is the al fresco dining space where guests can come together for a meal. It is the perfect place to sample Kumaoni cuisine with vistas of some of the majestic Himalayan peaks for company.
