Ashburnham is a beautiful boutique hotel, hidden away in the foothills of the Knuckles Mountain Range. The Estate House at Ashburnham was the the Principal Planters home for the large Mahatenne Estate, planted in the 1930s, when tea first came to this part of Sri Lanka. Originally British-owned, the house and estate passed through gradually more Sri Lankan hands until it was bought by David Swannell in 2004. Set on a 98 acre tea estate, it offers guests the perfect location to relax, unwind and enjoy stunning views and magical sunsets. Visit its 40ft waterfall, soak up the sunshine by our outdoor pool, read a book by the fire or enjoy a lovely meal on the terrace overlooking the hills. A visit to Ashburnham Estate is a visit you will never forget. More details at:
Ashburnham Estate will be hosting this retreat for a limited private group and all necessary Covid-19 precautionary measures will be taken to ensure your safety.
Between parents who worked in conservation, a love of the outdoors, and an early immersion in the natural environment, Aravinda found the influences that led him to become the naturalist guide he is today. His expertise on the Sri Lankan landscape and its wildlife-rich ecosystems is vast. Driven by a desire to help people deepen their connection with nature and appreciate the beauty of life that surrounds them, Aravinda's passion and irrepressible enthusiasm inspires all who travel with him and his vast knowledge deeply enriches every experience.
