"In the tranquil haven of nature, the rhythm of a peaceful heartbeat replaces the frantic pace of the city. Embrace the art of slow-living, where the whispers of the wind reveal the secrets of your soul." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Amidst the chaos of urban life, what your soul truly needs is a haven of serenity: An escape to a tranquil abode, where the gentle whispers of nature and unhurried moments conspire to rejuvenate your spirit.

Embark on a journey of undisturbed calmness to Purkul Gaon, a little hamlet perched on the outskirts of Dehradun in the serene foothills of Mussoorie. Perched in the quietude of Purkul's foothills, Hushstay x Barefoot House is an exquisite 03-bedroom vacation home that awaits like a secret whispered by nature.

Meticulously restored and transformed into a haven of sophistication, this boutique cottage with its vibrant living/dining area, glass walls overlooking the lush garden and open spaces offers a wonderful opportunity to appreciate life's simple joys: quiet conversations with nature, the soothing hues that calm the soul, and the symphony of tranquility that orchestrates every moment. This is where the mundane is left behind, and the extraordinary begins.

Hushstay x Barefoot House is a hidden gem that awaits those seeking a luxurious escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It inspires you to rediscover the joy of doing-just-nothing and let the tranquil stillness be your greatest luxury.

The House, a modest 35-year-old structure, retains the charm of an old English estate through its charming, colourful and vibrant interiors.


As you step into the living area through a carved wooden door, the transition from external allure to curated interior becomes a mesmerizing prelude. A wooden ceiling and a comfy sofa offer a cozy old-world atmosphere while oversized windows frame the lush garden, creating a living canvas of nature.

The adjoining Dining Area with its authentic English charm exudes an inviting aura. Surrounded by glass panels, the dining area offers panoramic views of the spacious green garden, creating a serene and picturesque backdrop for your dining experience. The design philosophy, influenced by the serene outdoors, unfolds a tale of integrative design—a marriage between the external landscape and the curated indoor space.

The beautifully landscaped garden is a great place to soak in the afternoon sun while being surrounded by the sounds of nature, lay under a canopy of fruit trees or enjoy Bonfire sessions in the evening with your loved ones.



There are 03 full furnished rooms with attached bath. All the rooms have elegant furnishings, luxury beddings, en-suite washrooms and internet access.

True to their names, the rooms are adorned with designs and hues that reflect their unique personalities, evoking the ambiance of an old English House.

The Olive room features 02 separate single beds and adjoins the Sapphire Room that features a double sofa cum bed alongside a king-size bed. Both of these bedrooms open up to the Living Area on the ground floor. A circular staircase leads upstairs to the third room. The Pumpkin Room features a king-size double bed and a Smart TV and is meant as a more private abode with two private sitout areas. 

Overall, the house has been designed in a way that offers a sense of togetherness while still making sure that privacy is maintained.
