Year round destination. Because the Hill Country it so high up it rarely gets unbearably hot. The months of December to April are probably the best time to visit, as temperatures rise to around 28C during the day but cool down at night. During the monsoon season from October to December you can expect heavy downpours. June to September are the driest months here, when there’s almost no rain at all.
Goatfell is a beautiful and intimate 4 bedroom bungalow retreat located in the heart of the hill country on a working tea estate. Recently opened, this is a hugely exciting addition to the Hill Country and a great base from which to explore.
As a Teardrop property guests can expect excellent and unobtrusive service, delicious cuisine and a wonderful 'at home feeling' from a stay at Goatfell. Based on a working tea estate, guests are given an immersive experience of the hill country complimented by 360 degree views of the surrounding rolling hills.
All rooms at Goatfell are uniquely designed and accented with stunning features, a mix of contemporary and antique pieces providing a stylish atmosphere. The four en-suite bedrooms are located in the main house and will come equipped with plush rugs, overhead fans and for chilly evenings hot water bottles will be provided for guests to keep cosy. Two of the bedrooms at the property can be combined to create a suite with one double room and one twin room providing a great option for families.
