About Ceylon Tea Trails, Hatton
Built between 1890 and 1939 each bungalow is unique, but they all combine classical and contemporary styles offering a taste of gracious living complete with butler service and authentic period furnishings. Summerville has an air of a country cottage, Castlereagh has an eclectic style of its own, the high colonial Tientsin, one of the first planter's residences to be built in Ceylon and the more modern Norwood; abounding with 50's character. Summerville and Castlereagh are situated opposite each other on the shores of the Castlereagh lake, Norwood is at the other end of the valley about 15 minutes away by car and Tientsin is about 30 minutes away in the next valley. Each bungalow comes with its own manager, chef, butler and houseboys and from 4 to 6 rooms each with a beautiful Master Suite with a separate living room and private gardens. Rooms are named after past tea planter occupants. It is possible to walk to each bungalow to appreciate the beautiful scenery.
