We loved our stay at Ashburnham Estate, so much so that I was taken kicking to the car on our departure! Everything about our stay was perfect, the welcome from Vij and Reegi, our first pot of tea overlooking the estate, our homely and spacious room and our first lunch on the balcony of fresh salad and quiche (so delicious that I had a cooking lesson with the chef and felt privileged to have him share his secret recipe with me). The weather was drizzly so our host Andy, much to my joy, set an open fire around which enjoyed scones and jam and tea. Bliss! Our evening meal, was just as wonderful. We shared great conversations with other guests, Andrea, Simon, Lily and Finn over wonderful curries and pudding. What could be better, other than sweet cuddles with baby Neo, the manager and his wife's very new baby. Thanks Carrie for sharing. Would I stay here again? Absolutely! Would I recommend staying here? In a flash. It is one of my most favourite memories of Sri Lanka.
