Kelburne Mountain View Cottages

Haputale | First Class

In a superb location 5,000 feet above sea level and surrounded by a working organic tea estate, the Kelburne Cottages would be worth visiting just for the amazing views. The clue is in the name - you do indeed gaze out over mountains and valleys, with five Sri Lankan provinces visible from your vantage point.

The cottages themselves are simple but stylish Colonial-style bungalows set within well-manicured lawns and cottage gardens, their homely interiors furnished to reflect the estate’s long heritage. The effect is a high-quality cosy welcome rather than aloof historic grandeur, with rustic wooden ceilings, original fireplaces, and always somewhere comfortable to curl up with a book or stretch out and admire the views or perhaps have a game of croquet on the lawn!

Meals are cooked in the estate’s expert kitchens using produce from the on-site garden, and served in the privacy of your cottage or in the semi-open air dining area. Each cottage has its own member of staff to arrange meals and attend to your day-to-day needs, leaving you free to relax completely, or head off into the surrounding region - Kelburne is perfectly placed to explore Horton Plains, Nuwara Eliya, Tea Country, Udawalawe and Yala National Parks. Liptons Seat viewpoint is a short drive away and you can also take in some clean mountain air and wander freely through the tea plantation that surround the gardens or take a tea tour and meet the tea pluckers with the manager Raj.

We Say
