I felt surrounded by people who were caring and kind. Andrew went out of his way to look after me when I got sick. He was an angel. The cottage is charming, in a beautiful setting with gorgeous neighbours. I miss it already. I stayed a month and look forward to coming back to Pra…

We stayed at Pradhan's cottage for full 7 weeks, and it really felt like a home during our stay. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. This is one of the most peaceful places we've been to in India, and yet we felt connected to the surrounding friendly village community…

Beautiful place with great views. Secluded and quiet but still walkable to all main sites in Darjeeling.

How to get trained to stay in complete isolation from humanity: Pradhan cottage - abode of serenity, place of recluse and heaven for social outcasts.   We  booked this place originally for four days given all the raving reviews on AirBnB. This place looked to be a home A…

Response from Sudev:
Hi Tanvi, Thank you for your positive remarks. I know it is a 15-20 MIN WALK from the absolute center of the town (for which I apologize) but I have to disagree that it is a nightmare to reach! It is a short (and quite pleasant) 1.2 km walk from town center - Happy valley is actually further away :) I know that your husband's minor accident may have ruined your stay but it is a bit unfair to take it out on us, don't you think? Andrew did all he can to insure you have a pleasant stay despite your foul mood! In response to the taxi driver's comment - we started hosting only in 2016 because Airbnb made it possible to share/advertise the cottage. You could hardly expect customers to walk into a residential area and expect to find a hotel! Also, the internet is a lovely thing - It has brought people closer and made concepts like shared economy (Airbnb) possible.

The cottage is rustic and allows you a close up of local village life in Darjeeling. We rented a car with a driver from Bagdogra airport to get to the cottage. The path leading down to the premises is not accessible to larger vehicles like SUVs or MPVs. The local vans can drive d…

The cottage was really cute. It has two bedrooms (one has a double bed, and the other has three single beds). However, there is only one bathroom cum toilet. There is no centralised heating. However, heater is available at an extra cost of rs. 150 per day. The place was super qui…
