About the Estate:

One of the earliest estates established in the country, the coffee estate is spread over 200 acres of flourishing coffee-bushes, surrounded by spectacular forested hills and gushing streams of crystal clear water. The property was developed in the 1800s by Lieutenant Colonel W. R. Wright, an army officer in British India, who was also a writer and a poet. He was also a founding member of the Coorg Planter’s Association. His keen oversight of every branch of the plantation contributed to the transformation of the estate in just twenty-three years – from a jungle in which big game abounded to a highly cultivated and thriving estate and a delightful home to his family. After Lt. Col. Wright, the property remained with his descendants until 1964 when it was bought by the present owners, the Thaikappa family, who hail from southern Tamil Nadu.
