Welcome to Cranford Villa

Cranford Villa is a spacious heritage bungalow nestled in the lovely hills of Diyatalawa. Overlooking misty blue capped mountains that embrace up country rail track, Cranford is surrounded by vineyards, vegetable plantations and a beautiful garden. Ideally suited to spend a peaceful holiday and to relax and rejuvenate your mind.

The design of the bungalow takes its inspiration from Sri Lanka’s colonial past, with its bright, cool veranda, teak four-poster beds, and quaint fire-place. Cranford boasts five newly refurbished bedrooms, all of which have en-suite bathroom facilities. The two deluxe rooms have their own television sets with a variety of local and international (cable) channels. You can take a stroll in our extensive garden, relax in the hot water Jacuzzi or enjoy a game of basketball or badminton. We also offer a range of indoor games like carom, darts and cards upon request, and guests are welcome to make use of our extensive DVD library.
