The Weir House, named after the weir that is located upstream, is the country home of a Sri Lankan family who have created a restful holiday retreat within a village setting. Surrounded by mountains and lush foliage, this is a blissfully peaceful spot, interrupted only by the sound of flowing water, crickets and birdsong. The house is on a six-acre estate scattered with fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, tea, coffee and flowering plants that attract plenty of birds. It is perched on a hill and is reached via a series of steps and is designed with tall glass doors that open out to broad verandas and the gardens beyond. Interiors are a mix of contemporary design with Sri Lankan and Indian touches. The Weir House can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests and is let out on room basis. It should be noted that Weir House is located on a hill and requires climbing several steps, making it difficult to access for those with mobility difficulties. It is also not suitable for children below eight years due to the surrounding downhill slopes.
