The Old Priests House lies on the edge of the Knuckles range national park with its fantastic flora and fauna. Trekking in the mountains with local English speaking guides is becoming increasingly popular yet the area remains unspoilt by tourism. We have renovated the Old Priests House so that it can sleep 10, 13 at a pinch to be a simple clean stylish house overlooking the Victoria Dam Reservoir and the Knuckles Range Mountains. The house lies in its own secluded gardens but is part of the Welikande Villas Hotel giving the flexibility to self cater or eat in the restaurant. The house has 3 main bedrooms a simple kitchen,bathroom and living area where there are 2 double bed sofas.
