Stafford Bungalow Kandapola


Set amongst the stunning tea plantations in Sri Lanka, Stafford Bungalow is a family heritage holiday home, initially built by the pioneering Scottish planters in 1884. It is located in the outskirts of the Hill resort of Nuwara Eliya, approximately 30 minutes’ drive through the picturesque tea country and bordering the town of Ragala.

Stafford Bungalow is now open to guests to share the experience of living in this exclusive planter's bungalow within a 50 acre working tea plantation. It is located amongst one of the finest tea fields in the world, in a private and stylish ambience. Rest and rejuvenate while enjoying the salubrious cool climes of the 'Tea Country', take a walk along one of the many trails that wind their way through the luscious tea bushes, or just simply enjoy freshly brewed tea and scrumptious baked scones on the perfectly manicured 'Blue Grass' garden, immersing in nostalgia of the days gone by.
