Hello everyone,

I am travelling to India for the 9th time in a couple of weeks, but this time I will be taking my 20 month old son.

We are flying in/out of Delhi so want to stay close enough (say 3 hours?) as long travel with a toddler & luggage is not fun, but really want to have some time to relax and enjoy rural India if possible.

We are firstly heading to Haridwar, Rishikesh & Vrindavan so I thought staying in Uttarakhand might be a good option

Here are a list of things i'm looking for:

*a homestay or something similar (i'd like to practice Hindi/Urdu with locals if possible)
* countryside/natural setting away from the city
* within 3 hours of Delhi
* somewhere I can relax and be at home!

Budget-wise, I'm open to see whats on offer.

Any suggestions would be great. Thank you! x

No place as per your requirement in Uttarakhand, specially as you would need to reach airport which means crossing all of Delhi. Try to look for a place on Jaipur highway as it will be convenient for airport travel. There are many good options for home stays and forest stays, then there are places like Neemrana if you wish some luxury.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

Could you please recommend the homestays/forest stays by name so I can look into them?

I will also look at Neemrana. Thank you!

Check out idyllic haven village homestay in Binsar. There are also a couple of options in Jageshwar, near Almora. However these places are definitely not 3 hours away from Delhi! Even if you fly to Pantnagar airport, these places are a 5-hour drive from there.

Thank you for the recommendations. I have since settled on Udaipur, about a 1 hour flight from Delhi. X
