A selection of board games is available for guests' use. These can be found in the large cabinet on The Front Verandah, just outside The Planters' Suite. Chess and Solitaire are already set up in The Living Room.
In keeping with the peace and tranquility that Glenburn has to offer, we do not have a television link. However, we do have a collection of movies that you may watch in The Living Room. This must be with mutual consent of the other guests in residence, and must not be intrusive or disturbing.The Glenburn Experience, a 15-minute film on the history of Glenburn and an overview of the process of growing, manufacturing and tasting tea, will be screened on one of your evenings with us. If you would like to purchase a copy of the film, please contact Neena or Neilu. If you are traveling with children and would like to carry some movies, please do so, but this must been done in consultation with other guests in residence.
A music system is also available if you would like to listen to music. We have a small collection of classical music on CD.
The Living Room also houses a library with a collection of books relating to local birds, butterflies, flowers, trees, wildlife and history. There are also guides on Darjeeling Town, Sikkim and Bhutan, as well as the rest of India. We also have a collection of cookery books, as well as light fiction and old magazines ranging from those on golf and horse riding, to travel and fashion. Do feel free to leave us any books you feel are too heavy for you to carry home! If you do leave a book, don't forget to write something to us in the inside front cover.
A set of original British-surveyed (1932) contour maps of the Estate and the surrounding area (including Darjeeling and Sikkim) can be found in The Living Room.
A newspaper is brought down from Darjeeling Town by the Glenburn mailman, every day except for Sundays and holidays. It should reach the bungalow by late afternoon. Please ask one of the staff if you cannot locate it, or if you would like to order any other specific newspaper or magazine for the following day.
