It doesn't have the summer rush madness of Shimla or the crass commercialism of Manali. It's probably Himachal's best kept secret – easily accessible from Delhi and Chandigarh and yet possessing the solitude of a far flung idyll in the hills.
Writershill is the perfect mountain bolthole for anyone wanting to escape the tedium of life in the city. Looking out across a gurgling river, this place is all clean lines, minimal wooden furniture, clean linen and caring staff.
Fuel up on delicious, home-cooked meals and spend the day reading, watching films, birdwatching or hiking. And if you don't feel like stirring at all, curl up in an armchair - smell the pines and hear the trees whisper!
