Overview
Rockwood Estate Bungalow located within 'Rockwood Estate' in Hewaheta was one such bungalow once occupied by the early breed of 'Planters' who strived to make the high quality tea that Sri Lanka is renowned for. The Bungalow was constructed in the early 1900s and is situated approximately 4700 feet above sea level on top of a mountain overlooking the Randenigala Reservoir.

The local elders believe that Rockwood Bungalow was built between 1914 and 1924 for use by a British Planter in charge of the Eastland Division of Rookwood Estate.

Clay, Lime and Rock - The original bungalow consisted of walls built with rocks and bound by a mixture of clay and limestone dust.

Self Sustaining - There exists evidence of a Cattle-Shed supporting the notion that the early inhabitants of the bungalow had been self sustained with milk, meat, poultry and vegetables at their disposal on site.

Accommodation

Living Room
The newly added living room has seating for up to 10 people, together with a fire place, bar counter, LCD TV, DVD Player and Stereo to keep your spirits up when the weather plays spoiler from time to time.

Bed Rooms

The 4 bedrooms (3 with historic fire places intact) have a queen sized bed in each room, enough to sleep 2 adults comfortably. The 4 rooms have been painted yellow (historic wooden floor), pink, blue and beige keeping with the surroundings. 3 Rooms have bathrooms en-suite, whilst access to the bathroom from the 4th bed room is through the passage way connecting the rooms.

Dining
The open air dining room with seating for 8 occupies the area in between the living room and the main structure that houses the bed rooms, and offers a view of the valley beneath with direct access to the barbeque area at the rear end of the bungalow. We also have a chef on site, with experience in the preparation of Sri Lankan and Western cuisine.

View Point
The view point comprises of two levels; i.e. - an upper deck offering breathtaking views of the valley below including the reservoir at Randenigala complete with sun benches; and a rather secluded lower deck with seating for a couple or more. Both decks can be used for gatherings of any nature, with the lower deck better suited for rainy or extremely sunny weather given the ceiling above and the shade around.

Attractions

James Taylor’s Cottage
A few minutes’ drive from Rockwood Bungalow, at Loolcondera Estate in Deltota lies the remains of the cottage used by James Taylor – the father of Ceylon’s tea industry. The site that has been ignored for sometime has received some publicity in the recent past thanks to efforts of key people in the industry. The estate also offers a few interesting nature trails that can usually be covered within half a day.

King Rajasinghe’s Cave
Wander into the forests off Hanguranketha, and you will find the cave said to have been a hide out of the last Ceylonese King – Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe. The area currently houses a Buddhist shrine, and sufficient notice is required to arrange a visit to the site.

Muloya Tea Factory

The only tea factory in operation in the area, Muloya has been the processing point for tea collected from estates in the vicinity for the last few years. Factory visits with a guided tour can be arranged with sufficient notice.

Rookwood Falls
Situated within Rockwood Estate, this water fall is around 80 meters in height and a dip in one of the many pools around can be a refreshing experience for both body and mind. The half hour trek to the foot of the fall will take you through tea bushes, with plenty of opportunities to savour the bird life around.

Mini World’s End

This is the highest location within the estate, offering great views of the countryside from a cliff estimated to stand around 400 meters. The peak offers a direct view of the town of Padiyapelella from where you can take in the scenery of just enjoy the clouds caressing through at a gentle pace.

Mandaram Nuwara

This is a town situated at the foot of Pidurutalagala (Sri Lanka’s highest mountain) and is around 20Kms from Hewaheta, The town is covered in darkness for most part of the day due to its unique location as the mountains around act as a natural shield against the sun. The drive takes one past the hamlet of Padiyapelella, where one can take a dip in the Ma Oya (a river) which has become a point of gathering for local folk enjoying a dip in the cool water over a banter.
