We had such a lovely time at this beautiful house, set in the hills outside Kandy in a tea estate. Carole and her team made us feel extremely welcome, we couldn't have asked for more so we extended our stay heresy we could enjoy it for longer. We took one trip into Kandy which is around 30 minutes away in a car, this was quite enough for us as it is a busy town and a bit touristy (the best thing we found there was an organic health shop that sold the best mosquito bite cream ever). We found it much more enjoyable to have long walks around the Ashburnham area. Reggie the chef is a great guy and his food was wonderful, we even had a cooking lesson one evening. The climate up there is a little chilly in the evenings especially when you find yourself in a cloud, but a log fire is promptly lit and soon you'll be too hot again! We had a great time at this lovely estate and would highly recommend this place to couples and families who like to watch the comings and goings of nature amongst friendly people.
