Perhaps this is exactly how the shikaris enjoyed their leisure. The architecture of The Homestead, near Corbett National Park, is a throwback to the old school British cottages. It is a perfect blend of the old and the new. The mounted antlers on the walls, and the huge tiger skin in the lounge are reminders of the shikar The luxurious rooms have all the amenities you can think of. In case you want to visit in summer, there’s a swimming pool in the garden, where you can spend most of your day. There’s a lot to do, both inside and outside the house. Go angling, or pack a lunch for a picnic by the Kosi river, or go on a jungle safari. In the evening, relax by the pool, take a dip, and sample some of the delicious local cuisine before passing out for the day.
