Elerton was built for the manager of a large tea estate more than 100 years ago. Now owned by Luca and Iromi Poloni, it retains the character and tranquillity of those colonial days. At 2,400 feet Ellerton combines the best of Sri Lanka’s weather. The sun in the day is hot, while the evenings and nights are relatively cool without the stickiness of the coast, nor the distinct chill of the hill country. Close to the geographic centre of Sri Lanka, 3 hours drive from Colombo, 30 minutes from Kandy, Ellerton is ideally sited for exploring the Island. Set in beautiful gardens, Ellerton has 8 comfortable double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities.
