About Polwatte House

Polwatte House is a beautiful riverside home and only a 15min drive (8km) from Kandy. It's nestled in one of the few remaining old coconut estates in the area and is in the perfect position to explore Kandy and the surrounding highlights or just put your feet up with a book and enjoy the peace and quiet.
 
The house was built by the British Army during the British rule in the 1940's as an Officers Mess. The house has history and now has a style all of its own.
 
While staying in a mixed Sri Lankan / English home, you can experience real Sri Lankan life, while enjoying the benefits of English hosts with tons of local knowledge. We are a family with young children & 3 dogs (the dogs live outside and are not allowed in the house). You can taste the variety of traditional Sri Lankan home cooking, made with fresh ingredients, with a few western dishes thrown in.  
 
Facilities: 2 Double Rooms, 1 Shared Bathroom, Free Wi-Fi, Large Garden, Laundry - available at reasonable rates, Iron & Ironing Board, Parking, Inside Non-Smoking. 
Families welcome.
