WHAT'S STONYHURST LIKE?
When you think of toasty log fires, hot water bottles and electric heaters, Sri Lanka doesn't immediately come to mind. But at Stonyhurst in Nuwara Eliya – the island's highest town set deep in the heart of the vertiginous hill country – these indulgent features warmly embrace you from the night time chill.

Situated at an elevation of over 6,000 feet, the climate in this hill country capital known as ‘Little England' shares more similarities with summertime Europe than with Asia; think hot sunny days and cool nights.

Rearing tall above a lush lawn fringed by neat borders of flowers, Stonyhurst beautifully captures the views, the anomalies and the unique character of this unique market town. It's a cherished hill country escape for its Colombo-based owners, and they have done much to make this exquisite granite-walled two-storey house feel like home. John, Stonyhurst's wonderful caretaker and cook, adds to the charm as he looks after guests with grace and warmth. Invisibly, he uses music to set the scene, warms your bed with hot water bottles, lights the fires and is at your side before you've even thought about what you need.

The living and dining rooms at Stonyhurst are on the ground floor, and the six bedrooms (including a kid's bunk room) are all upstairs. Furnished with cosy sofas, armchairs and beanbags, the burgundy-hued lounge is the heart of the house and it spills breezily onto a lawn spiked by ancient fir trees and colourful flowering bushes. A dining room with pantry sits next to the lounge, and there's also an attached kitchen too for guests to use if they please. Table tennis is available at Stonyhurst, as are garden games including croquet, and there are also four bicycles for getting out and exploring the back lanes of Nuwara Eliya.

Bedrooms are beautifully cosy and feature parquet floors topped with soft rugs and long drapes to keep out the cold. Beds are dressed with soft duvets and plumped with pillows. The bathrooms follow a colonial aesthetic but are fitted with strong hot water rain showers. Bedrooms gaze out over the surrounding mountains, the neighbouring vegetable plots and the Holy Trinity Church.

Two double bedrooms are ensuite. One of these is the master bedroom, which is very spacious and celebrates views over the front and side garden. Furnished with an antique four-poster bed draped with linen, there is also a rattan chaise longue, a chest of drawers, his and hers wardrobes, a TV with DVD player and a raised fireplace. French windows lead onto a side balcony shared with a smaller double ensuite bedroom, which is furnished with a queen-size four-poster bed.

A further two floral-hued double bedrooms share in views over the front lawn and the mountains. Each features a double bed, a wardrobe or chest of drawers and wall mounted reading lamps. They share a bathroom across the hall.

The final two rooms are a twin and a bunk room, and these also share a bathroom across the hallway. The twin features two double beds and the bunk room comes with a pair of bunk beds, which can sleep up to four children.

This house is a family holiday home, and it's been designed with children in mind. Kids books and DVDs share cabinet space with board games, and there's a twin bedroom as well as a four-bed bunk room. Children will love riding ponies at the racecourse, playing in Victoria Park and exploring the enclosed garden.

Zugang für Gäste
You will have exclusive access to the entire house.

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
