About Ferncliff

Where generations meet

Set in the Nuwara Eliya valley of Sri Lanka’s central highlands, Ferncliff is an ancestral bungalow restored to echo the nostalgia of “Little England”. With four rooms and two suites, Ferncliff serves as an opulent tribute to design, layout and the comfort of bungalow living.

In close vicinity to tea, nature, mountainous trails, and to one of the oldest golf clubs in Asia, Ferncliff is a one of a kind vacation bungalow, immersed with the charm and authenticity of the Sri Lankan way of life.

Come stay awhile and enjoy hospitality from the soul of Nuwara Eliya.

Places to Visit

Designed for natural living

 Ferncliff is set to capture your imagination, and is one of the last links with ‘Little England’, and the great white hunter Samuel Baker, who discovered this idyllic valley, full of elephants, deer and wild boar.

Tradition, great location in a beautiful garden, Great experience, excellent meals, cosy rooms, very customer oriented with customized breakfast to go at 0500 in the morning. Both rooms (totally six rooms only) were quiet and facing the garden. All highlights can be reached by walking


From Germany

A great location to enjoy the best of NE - a warm welcome from Bernard & his staff was always a turn back in time . The property is immaculately maintained and the colonial bungalow is perfect location to explore this area. We arranged day tours through the hotel which worked like clockwork. Rooms are well maintained & spacious. A good breakfast sets you up for the day and an evening meal in front of the roaring fire adds to the atmosphere. A little on the expensive side but there again so is most of this area for accommodation!


From United Kingdom

Very charming, British hotel with friendly, extremely helpful staff. The rooms with ancient decor were clean and spacious. The dinner was excellent, served with style in a dining room with open chimney.
