Sally and Jerry were gracious hosts who cooked up some awesome dishes with the help of Rani who handled the Sri Lankan meals. Specially loved Sally's vegetarian tajine with couscous, Rani's Hoppers and Pol Roti!
The house was clean and tidy, the linen crisp, hot water on tap, the views are amazing and the little village had plenty of walks and things to see, specially the traditional bakery which we visited at 6.15am to buy some food to take on our early morning walk.
Jerry has some suggested walks/ maps which we used to walk over to the next valley.
We skipped lunch on both days as breakfast was filling. But if you do want to have lunch, you can order from Mount Royal or walk up there in 2min.
For all you need to know, check their revamped website.
Thank you Sally and Jerry for a lovely stay....we will be back SOON! More
