Villa, Hill Country, USD 200 to 500

Built over 100 years ago for the Manager of a major tea estate, it preserves the character and tranquillity of colonial days. At 2,400 feet, Ellerton combines the best of Sri Lanka's weather. The sun in the day is hot, while the evenings and nights are relatively cool without the stickiness of the coast, nor the distinct chill of the hill country.
  
The beautiful gardens are full of interesting flowers, butterflies and birds including the the Sri Lankan Hanging Parrot, Golden Oriole, Sunbirds and the Plum Headed Parakeet. The garden also provides vegetables and fruit for the house. 

The Main House has a colonial-style veranda, immediately adjacent to which is the large open-sided Pavilion, where meals are normally eaten and which also provides a shady retreat for reading and admiring the view.

Ellerton is very informal and we can accommodate most requirements for meals. We have a policy of giving free drinks with lunch and dinner including local alchohol - which means beer, gin, whisky and mixers as well as fruit juices.

The Main House has a large sitting room furnished with antiques, a dining room which seats 12 and a study where you can watch international news via satellite TV. There are 2 guest bedrooms, one double and one twin, both with their own bathrooms. The twin bedroom has an additional bedroom leading off it with a single bed. 

The Valley House is near the swimming pool, and some thirty yards away from the main house. It has spectacular views and has three generous bedrooms, two double and a twin, the double bedrooms have their own bathrooms whilst the twin has a shower. A great advantage of the Valley House is the huge veranda which is a natural place to sit and read. Valley House guests can choose to have their meals here.
  
The swimming pool is a wonderful vantage point from which to gaze at the view 20 miles down the valley. The pool is fed from our own borehole and we use very little in the way of chemicals, greatly enhancing the pleasure of swimming. 

This is our home when in Sri Lanka so the house is furnished in a relaxed 'country house' style. There are books and magazines for guests to read, music to play and games and cards are available too.
