Accommodation: I have a house with two spare rooms. The rooms can accommodate up to 3 guests, there are three single beds. If guests don’t mind sleeping on mats we could accommodate more if you want to travel as a group. I do not charge guests any money for accommodation at the house, however, each guest is required to contribute 500.00 Sri Lankan rupees Per day for expenses for food during their stay at the farm.
Food: we provide basic Sri Lankan food, morning Tea/Coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The kitchen keeper
Kumari does the cooking on a firewood stove and guests are welcome to join the kitchen and learn from her the Sri Lankan way of cooking meals.
Guests can always shop at Digana town for fruits, biscuits or whatever they need and can store them in the refrigerator in the house.
Work: Helping on the farm is most appreciated. Farm work does not involve any heavy duty work. Farm work could include watering trees, removing weeds, sowing new seeds, picking fruits and vegetables etc. We respect the rights of helpers on the farm.
Water: We always have boiled tap water at the house. However, if you wish to have bottled drinking water, it is available at the local shops nearby.
Laundry: A basic washing machine is available at no cost so you can wash and dry your clothes yourself.
Trekking: Guests, can go trekking on the (Bambaragala Mountain) behind our farm and stay overnight at the peak, we can supply a small tent for (two persons) and also accompany you for overnight stay.
Boating: The Victoria lake is walking distance and guests can go for a boat ride, view the natural habitat along the lake. A small voluntary payment for the boat owner will be sufficient.
The nearest railway station is Kandy. There are daily trains from Colombo to Kandy and the ride has some beautiful sights. Journey time is around 3 hours. I can help you with the bookings. From Kandy it is about one hours travel to the farm by bus or forty five minutes by tuk tuk taxi (costs about sri lankan rupees 1000)
