Stafford Estate Bungalow Sri Lanka

Overview of Stafford Estate Bungalow

Situated just 40 minutes from Nuwara Eliya, in the picturesque little village hamlet of Ragala, within the precincts of the Stafford Tea Estate, lies this beautiful heritage bungalow. Built in 1884 in the days of the British Raj by the trail blazing Scotts, the bungalow's colonial charm has been lovingly maintained through the years, albeit with the addition of modern day amenities.

Rest and rejuvenate on the extensive front lawn, while enjoying the salubrious cool climes of the 'Tea Country'.Take a walk along one of the many trails that wind their way through the luscious tea bushes, or just simply enjoy freshly brewed tea and scrumptious baked scones on the 'Blue Grass' garden.

Unapologetic romantics can feast on a sumptuous candlelit barbeque dinner beneath a canopy of stars. Relax under the twinkling glow of the night sky and wish upon a shooting star. Unwind, explore and discover the magic of a quiet getaway.

Accommodation of Stafford Estate Bungalow

Only with the privacy and independence of a holiday home, can guests relax in clothing of their choice and parents not feel the need to restrain children from having fun and creating a rumpus! Welcome to our holiday home in the hills - Stafford Bungalow -which provides the perfect choice for couples or families. Unconfined by hotel timings and formalities of dining, the bungalow has its own nanny room and a family-friendly staff.

Stafford has 3 spacious bedrooms each with it's own character and ensuite bathrooms. The house sleeps 7 persons comfortably in addition to a large playroom where the kids could bed down if they wish!

Enjoy the fresh and aromatic eucalyptus log fire in the living room. Settle down around the hearth and reminisce on the "good old days".

We serve fresh, home cooked meals, unrestricted by protocol or formality, yet with a distinctive style that is enjoyed only at a 'home away from home'.


Dining of Stafford Estate Bungalow

The chef's or the 'Appus' of the tea plantations first learnt their traditions from their former employers - 'the quintessential planters of the British Raj'. Over time these Appus have honed their skills to include old English menus alongside more modern Western and Eastern dishes. The cool weather at Stafford Bungalow offers the perfect conditions to whet your appetite and do justice to the tasty meals served at the house. 

For breakfast there is a choice of western style eggs or the traditional 'Sri Lankan Hoppers', accompanied with 'sambol' and a curry of choice. Lunch is usually a tasty rice and curry, with a variety of dishes 'a la village' style, unless an alternate western meal choice is requested.

In the cool of the evening, 'high tea' is served on the lawn with freshly baked scones replete with liberal helpings of butter, homemade jam and cream, savoured with sips of aromatic hill country tea which aids digestion!

Dinner is a sumptuous three course meal, which includes Appu's special 'soup of the day' with a basket of freshly baked bread, a main dish with wholesome vegetables and salads, and an irresistible dessert.

Weather permitting, experience a candlelit outdoor barbeque under a starlit sky re-igniting the romantic in you. This could be arranged for an extra fee – the BBQ not the romance !
