Ellerton - Kandy Sri Lanka

Overview of Ellerton - Kandy

Built over 100 years ago for the manager of a major tea estate, it preserves the character and tranquillity of colonial days.

Ellerton is close to the geographic centre of Sri Lanka. Colombo and the international airport is 3 hours away and the World Heritage city of Kandy with its renowned botanical gardens and other tourist attractions is 30 minutes drive. The Cultural Triangle to the north is only 2 hours away making Ellerton an excellent base from which to explore the island.

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 countryside around Ellerton is crossed by many paths and tea estate roads, making walking and biking easy and delightful.


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.

Our water comes from our own spring and borehole. We drink it but if you prefer we can provide you with bottled water.

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 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.

Dining of Ellerton - Kandy

Meals are usually served in the large open sided Dining Pavilion. The Pavilion has a seating area providing a shady corner retreat to read or just admire the view down the valley. Ellerton has two excellent chefs.

Menus at Ellerton vary considerably day to day, and so even a guest staying for 10 days is unlikely to be offered the same dishes twice!
