    Give yourself a break from the hustle of the city and live the simple life at Mary’s Barn in Hessaraghatta. The farmhouse is perfect for picnics and fam jams.

    What Makes It Awesome

    We love Bangalore but sometimes we wish we could just escape all the traffic and noise that the city is infamous for. Well, repose is not too far away in Hessaraghatta at Mary’s Barn. A two-acre farmhouse, Mary’s Barn has everything you love about country life. From a farm full of animals like Moscowi ducks, geese, swans, rabbits, dogs and cats, to vast expanses of land to frolic around in and a tree house to climb up and check out, there’s plenty to do here. Perfect for family picnics or barbecue parties, you can spend the entire day here for just INR 150 per person and for an additional INR 1,000 you’ll get two barbecue grills and a bonfire as well.

    Activities to enjoy here include football, badminton and slush volleyball, where you get down and dirty, playing volleyball in mucky and slushy grounds (bring it on!). The kiddos can even have a ball at the rain dance, where the can splash around under shower heads to fun tunes. A great chance to experience something different, live the simple life at this 15-year-old property. Plus, it’s only an hour-long drive away. So check them out on Facebook and drop them a line if you want to live that farm life.


    If you want to turn your picnic into a mini-vacation, at INR 650 per head, you can stay here overnight. The folks at Mary’s Barn will provide you with tents to sleep in and you’ll have a wholesome brekkie ready for you when you wake up.
