Set high on a hilltop overlooking tea and paddys, you will find Pokkuluwa Tea Cottage which is a large two bedroom cottage with an infinity pool offering sweeping views. Located only twenty minutes from the World Heritage site of Galle Fort and ten minutes from beautiful and deserted stretches of beach.

The House

Pokkuluwa Tea Cottage is designed for indoor and outdoor living in a tropical setting and is ideal for a couple (being so private, it would be perfect for a honeymoon!) a small family or two couples travelling together. It comes staffed with a housekeeper who will also prepare breakfast for you and a chef can also be arranged for your stay.

The cottage is a spacious open plan ground floor, where the sitting room and kitchen are within the heart of the house and on either side you have two large bedrooms each with an inside/outside bathroom.

We welcome children and have a travel cot and other essentials. Namali, our housekeeper is also a wonderful nanny, having looked after our own two small children over the past few years.

We will also supply you with a pre-programmed local pay-as-you-go mobile phone and complimentary wi-fi.
