Ofcourse, most people in Bangalore look to unwind themselves out of their hectic lifestyle over the weekend. We are no different and keep looking out for places. Morritt Farm was one such discovery and a gem! We were a group of two families - 4 adults and 3 children who set out to Morritt Farm on the 21st of January, 2017. Route: The route is pretty straight forward - once we latch on to the Bangalore- Kolar highway and reach Kolar, need to take the exit from the long flyover towards Bangarpet. Inside Bangarpet, take the left turn towards the Kolar Gold Fields and once we reach BEML colony, take the left road from there. A couple of kms down, you'll see the board marked. Google has clear directions to the place but for the last bit to turn left for the Farm. The Farm: The Farm Stay has a very relaxing atmosphere. The dining area and the swimming pool are housed together near the reception. And the rooms are a little walk away. There is a great play zone for the kids which kept them entertained throughout our stay. It is also a safe place to leave the kids and have some time for yourself since the play area is visible and accessible from everywhere easily. The rooms are fairly large with a TV and all basic amenities. They even provided additional beds on request for the kids. Things to Do: The ambience is so relaxing that you wouldn't feel like doing much. But if you wish, there is a bullock cart ride which will take you to the nearby(2kms) black buck sanctuary where you can spot them grazing freely. This is a fun activity for all. They have a decent swimming pool which we didn't use since the water was cold being winter. They have a cattle farm where you can spend time feeding the cows and get to know the dairy farming. There are also other farm animals like goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, etc. housed in enclosures. You can also trek around the farm as there is plenty of scope for a good long walk. We carried a deck of cards which kept us going pretty much! You could also venture out of the farm to KGF and surroundings which we did on our way back. The Kotilingeswara temple is also nearby. Food: The rates are meals-all-inclusive hence you can forget about deciding and ordering what you want to eat. They serve buffet at the dining area. High Tea is also provided with some yummy fried snacks like bhajji or pakoras. You can also order some pre-meal snacks(veg/nonveg) to be paid separately. The food quality was good and the taste was above average. Service: This is the best part since we were taken care of very well. The staff were always around and courteous with all their support. This is what elevates the overall experience. The prices being very reasonable makes it the VFM. Overall, it was a great outing and a quality time spent over the weekend.
