Live like a planter

Lavender House

Refined old world charm in a serene setting

Time has come to a gentle yet firm halt up in the tea hills of Pussellewa, having lurched to a stop back in the glorious era of old Ceylon. A former residence of a British tea planter, the stately Lavender House today allows you a taste of what life was like for a planter in the British colonial era. The historic manor house boasts timeless elegance as modern comforts perfectly mingled with colonial-style sophistication.

Wander along the winding trails through the tea estate, or relax in the garden and enjoy a refreshing cup of Ceylon tea with freshly baked scones. Picture window frames dreamy hill country scenes of rolling and emerald tea fields.

An impeccably restored colonial treasure featuring original architectural elements, including paneled walls, wooden floors, low-beamed ceilings, fireplaces and exquisite pieces of antiques, the Lavender House tells of a bygone age. The five elegantly-decorated bedrooms, all as good as each other, come furnished with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. The comfy four-poster bed in each room is impossible not to retreat near-permanently to, especially when the weather comes down and a soft drizzle as cold as ice reaches the crooning of wind and rustling of leaves.
