Woodside Retreat was built in 1999 as a family home and is an ideal retreat in the mountains – a perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Woodside Retreat is tucked away in the hillside of the tiny, sleepy hamlet of Pangot, 15km from Nainital. The drive to the village takes you through beautiful Deodar and Oak forests, across gurgling brooks, sparkling with the midday sun. They have 6 bedrooms in the main cottage and 2 bedrooms in the outhouse all with attached bathrooms.
