Intro

Far from the madding crowd, surrounded by deodar trees, tucked away in a sleepy mountain hamlet called Thanedhar, is Grandma Stokes B&B.The owner Mr. Vinay Sirkceck has inherited the land from Mr. Satyanand Stokes (who is famous for bringing apples to these slopes) his great grandfather. Originally built as a family home, amidst apple and cherry orchards Vinay and his wife Veena decided to open their home to welcome guests 15 years ago.
The guests can admire spectacular views of the snow-capped mountains and of the River Sutlej below from some rooms and the widespread out viewing deck. Along with working in their orchard, the charming couple run this delightful homestay with their trusted trio, Chameli who is an outstanding cook, Sanju their helpful handyman, and Suman their all round charming help. You will be welcomed like family by all of them and also the furry residents of the homestay, Matru & Tiklu the cats and Taffy the dog. If you are looking for a true Himalayan valley home experience then Grandma Stokes is the destination.
