the space

Kenneth’s Bunker is located two hours away from the city of Bangalore. It is surrounded by rocky hills, forests, and hilltops dotted with several temples at an altitude of almost 4000ft above MSL. This region is well-known for trekking, wonderful climate, scenery, and wildlife.

The late Kenneth Anderson, after whom this home is named, was an Indian-born, British writer and hunter who wrote books about his adventures in the neighbouring jungles. And we’re sure he’d love this place. The property has a small self-contained cabin furnished out of an old restored shipping container giving the sole room the feel of a tiny home. Perfect for trying out a simpler, more minimal lifestyle! The aim is to develop homes that have a low carbon footprint along with the basic necessities one needs for their comfort.

The property establishes a sense of simple lifestyle (downsizing and reducing things in the home) that helps one adapt to these spaces without detaching too much from their comfort zone. The idea is to create a home that also caters to the needs of relaxation in the pristine environments one normally can’t find in cities.

comforts

The bunker comes with all the comforts one would expect at home and can easily host a family of two adults and two children, or three adults. The container is equipped with a queen-sized bed, an attached bath with hot water, a small working kitchen complete with a cooking set, cutlery, an induction stove, kettle, and a mini-refrigerator. Not satisfied? There are two foldable chairs to lounge outside and soak in the views and breathe in unadulterated oxygen. The property is operational all year.

food

The property is designed to be self-sufficient, but if you’re too lazy to cook our caretaker can prepare fabulous meals with fresh and crunchy ingredients sourced from the nearby farms for a nominal fee. You are welcome to carry your own food too!

ideal for

Kenneth’s Bunker is ideal for someone who would like to experience living in a tiny home, for couples who want a breather from the city, a young family that wants to introduce their kids to the great outdoors, birders who want to spot rare species, or just about anyone who is looking for quiet time in nature.

getting there

The property is located in Tumkur district, about two hours away from Bangalore city. The accurate location will be provided at the time of confirmation.

things to do

From the farm, you have access to some epic lakes, hikes, and trails. The property is located at the foothills of the majestic DRD and the hosts offer a guided trek to the top of the hill which usually takes about 4 hours. Nearby there’s a gherkin and pickles processing factory so if you’re up for it, the hosts would love to take you on a tour and show you how they are picked, sorted, and packaged before they find their way into your sandwich. There are historic temples around these parts for those who’d like to soak in the local culture.

price

The cabin is priced at Rs. 5,175 exclusive of meals for two. An additional fee of Rs. 2,400 takes care of three meals, a bonfire, and a half-day guided for two adults.
