the space

Kashmiriyat is a wonderful property that greets you all of a sudden from behind the large gates that do not reveal the serenity that lies waiting within. The cottage beautifully constructed in the traditional vernacular sits right in the heart of a posh neighborhood of the main Srinagar area. The bungalow is set in a tranquil area without the noise of the outside world. The hosts lives in the adjacent bungalow, separated by a trellis for additional privacy. The property has been the family home for decades and is adorned with traditional Kashmiri decor and architecture. The hosts are warm, caring and offer world-famous Kashmiri hospitality seamlessly. You can engage in conversations about anything under the sun and they make one feel right at home. Kashmiriyat has been restored after the 2014 floods and employs three local and ever-smiling caretakers, available to assist their guests with anything they need. One can expect a true experience of a homestay and feel right in their comfort zone in this beautiful abode.

comforts

The bungalow is an independent unit with its own sprawling garden and offers complete privacy. The ground floor holds two bedrooms with attached bathrooms and views of the garden. The ground floor also has spacious and cozy living and dining rooms overlooking the garden. One also has the choice of picking one of the two rooms upstairs, both with attached bathrooms. For larger groups, there is the option of booking the entire bungalow. The lush garden is home to a number of fruiting trees and flowering plants such as pomegranate, pear, and walnut. The lawns and garden are ideal for that morning cuppa, or the classic post-dinner Kahwah before calling it a night in the cosy bedrooms.

food

The caretakers prepare a variety of items including traditional Kashmiri dishes or North Indian and are very accommodating in terms of customising vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals as per one’s choice. Please note that lunch is usually not served at the cottage so one must make the necessary arrangements. Dinner is prepared on request.
