The Carbery Acres Property History & Legends:
Carbery Acres has a 300+ year history linked to feudal kingdoms of the Himalayas & the East India Company. The Raja of Tehri Garhwal, in acknowledgement of the Powel family’s contribution to military action in support of the Kingdom, gifted a jagir (land gifted by the King) to the family. The Powel family were among the leading lights during those days of the early development of Dehradun & Mussoorie. The jagir stretched from near Saharanpur to Vikasnagar and included Kunja Grant.
Mr. AG Carbery, a landlord of Dehradun, fell in love & married Mrs. Doris Mae Easton, nee Powel where they established Carbery Acres in 1930s. Years later, the two daughters of the Carbery family, Mauveen & Jennifer, married Indian Air Force officer, Ram Khanna & educationist Mr. Ivan Mann respectively and inherited Carbery Acres in 1961.
Mr. Greg Mann, belonging to the third generation of the family, established the Carbery Acres Homestay to share the peaceful beauty of the location with anyone seeking clean, fresh air, in the lap of mother nature. Carbery Acres also motivates & inspires young children to enjoy the great outdoors! His daughter, Ms. Amanda Mann has joined the business taking the lineage forward.
This boutique homestay is located in the middle of a forty-acre Mango orchard, surrounded by the Shivalik Range, with Sal & Teak reserve forests, the water-body of the Asan Wetlands Conservation Area – the only Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Uttarakhand and the majestic Himalayas that form the backdrop to the north of the property.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
