Ashburnham Estate,


Price From : US $ 114.66


Ashburnham is a 1930’s planter’s bungalow that has been caringly renovated by its British owner into a welcoming and restful holiday retreat. The property has a stunning backdrop of the picturesque Knuckles Mountain Range and is set on a working tea plantation. There is a lot to do on the estate, from trekking and river baths by the waterfall to exploring the Sri Lankan tea experience or simply lazing by the poolside. Ashburnham is laid-back, very much a home from home that provides a personalised service. The bungalow can be booked per room or in its entirety.


There are six comfortable ensuite bedrooms, four of which are Standard Double Rooms and two of which are spacious suites. Room interiors are well-furnished with double or twin beds, a writing desk, and a wardrobe. Some have a private terrace or balcony and all have mountain views. Ensuite bathrooms have h/w showers. Interconnecting rooms are available for families.

Reviews & Customer Feedback

Mar 15, 2014 : Gorgeous views, pretty gardens. Waterfall well worth a visit. Cooler climate. Lovely suite with period furnishings.
Dec 14, 2013 : Beautiful location. Quite far from Kandy, local countryside looked fantastic.
Aug 17, 2013 : Hosts and staff make this hotel. It is a taste of an older world. Guests can sit and eat together if they wish which we found very convivial. Lovely stay here.
