Tea Trails

I had booked to spend four nights at Tea Trails in June - staying for two nights each at Castelreagh and Summerville. I know that these bungalows are close together but felt from the website that they were the most traditional. Tea Trails management have now informed me that Summerville will be undergoing refurbishment at that time and suggested I go to Norwood for the second two nights. I am looking for something totally peaceful and relaxing in the midst of lots of visiting old friends in Sri Lanka and also bungalows with that old plantation feel about them. Does Norwood fit the bill in this respect? I used to stay at the bungalow on the Aislaby Estate in the late 80s and am just hoping that Tea Trails really does meet expectations as far as ambiance is concerned.

We stayed at Castlereagh in March this year. It was wonderful - unfortunately, Norwood was undergoing a refurb at the time so we didn't get a look at it - but we got fairly close when we went up to the Tea Factory nearby.

We had 3 nights at Castlereagh and loved it. It has stunning views of the reservoir, and great walking through the tea fields.

Norwood is a good 40 away minutes by car, and higher up, with no reservoir view, but surrounded by the hills and tea fields.

If you have chance to search the Reviews on Tripadvisor you should find some people who stayed at both and have compared them. Sorry I can't help you more about Norwood.
