Cottage in Pundaluoya, 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 4
The Gatehouse is a picturesque fully self-contained 2 bedroom cottage nestled beneath Singha rock in the beautiful tea hills of Pundaluoya, Sri Lanka.
It has two charming guest rooms, hot water shower and separate toilet and a fully equipped kitchen (fridge, cooker, cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery and glassware). This is the perfect escape. You can bring your own food or we'll cater* for you. Enjoy alfresco dining on your open verandah while enjoying the tea gardens and hill views.
Surrounded by the property's 9 acres of gardens, orchards, coffee plantation and market gardens, you can rent the entire gatehouse from as little as USD100* per night (recommended maximum 4 persons) and enjoy the serenity of Singha Sanasa's 9 acres including use of the 40ft pool.
Nights can get a little chilly, so we suggest you bring something warm for the evening. Doona's and fresh linen are supplied so you'll be cozy at bedtime and thick thirsty towels and bathrobes are included.
* Rates vary catering requirements. Rupee rates for residents and Sri Lankan citizens available. Located half way between Nuwera Eliya and Kandy, Singha Sanasa is your perfect location from which to explore the hill country of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka is home to an array of spectacular waterfalls many of which are only a short drive from Singha Sanasa
1. Only 5mins away or a 15min stroll is our Estate's own waterfall. Take a picnic and cool off in the spring water
2. Only 10mins away is the fabulous DUNSINANE waterfall. To get there - why not hire our ATV's or our 3 wheeler and explore the countryside.
3. RAMBODA FALLS is only a 15 min drive away. Why not stop there on your way to vista one of the nearby tea factories
4. A mere 25min drive will find you at DEVON and ST. CLAIR falls . Set amongst undulating tea gardens seeing these falls is a 'must' on your visit to Sri Lanka.

Had a wonderful experience at Sandy and Jacqueline's bungalow in the hill country. For a peaceful retreat away from everything with spectacular views. This is the place to stay.
From Hatton, take the Talawakelle road, through Devon and St Clair Tea Estates. Continue through Wattagoda and into Pundaluoya town. Drive through the town and turn right, over the bridge, just after the Police Station (which should be on your left) onto a small 'tea estate' road. There is a sign post saying North Pundaluoya Tea Estate. Follow the tarred road (about 15mins - 5km)) to the top of the hill. There you will see a large white gate which is the entrance to Singha Sanasa. PLEASE DO NOT USE GOOGLE MAPS - THE INFORMATION IS INACCURATE. Please call for directions or verification that you are on the right road. If you wish to travel by train, you can get the Colombo-Badulla train from Colombo Fort and we will arrange for you to be picked up at Watagoda station. (small charge applies)
