Waking up to the natural melody of tweeting birds and breathtaking views, Kelburne Mountain View Cottages are located at approximate 3000 feet at the top of the historic Haputale Pass. Looking over infinite valleys running in every direction, all five Sri Lankan provinces can be seen from the comfort of your own balcony, including Eastern, Southern, Western, Sabaragamuwa and Uva province. On a clear day, it’s possible to see the waves breaking along the Southern beaches, amidst the impeccable gardens and nearby Hindu temples that are located within the 50-acre tea estate. Liven up your taste buds with traditional Sri Lankan meals served in the comfort of your own cottage. If you’re feeling energetic, enjoy a game of badminton, basketball or the local favorite cricket with some other guests or local people. Alternatively, take a relaxing stroll around the estate where you are likely to encounter one of many chipmunks scurrying around. The three cottages at Kelburne - Aerie, Rose and Wallflower, will take you back to British colonial times, as you sip on tea, observe roving barefoot tea-pluckers dressed in flamboyant colored saris, along the steep tea estate against a backdrop of rolling hills, verdant valleys, swirling clouds and mist.
