Kelburne Mountain View Cottages - Haputale
Standard Boutique • Haputale
In a superb location 5,000 feet above sea level and surrounded by a working organic tea estate, the Kelburne Cottages would be worth visiting just for the amazing views. The cottages themselves are simple but stylish Colonial-style bungalows set within well-manicured lawns and cottage gardens, their homely interiors furnished to reflect the estate’s long heritage. The effect is a high-quality cosy welcome rather than aloof historic grandeur, with rustic wooden ceilings, original fireplaces, and always somewhere comfortable to curl up with a book or stretch out and admire the views or perhaps have a game of croquet on the lawn! Breakfast on the lawn in the crisp cool air as you take in the stirring landscape; stroll through the tea plantation where tea pluckers labour; take in the burnt orange skies at sunset and, after nightfall, savour a glass or two of wine by the fireplace. The individual cottages are undergoing a gradual transformation.
