Millis Potter Insight
There are many accommodation options to choose in the hill country of Sri Lanka, but to really experience the tranquil beauty of the tea hills it is best to go the extra mile and Taylors Hill has the feeling or remote solitude whilst still offering all you would need to enjoy your stay. The property is sister to The Last House and The Kandy House and the same welcoming atmosphere pervades here, with you feeling instantly at home on arrival. There is plenty on offer for children as well as adults and you can be as active or as relaxed as you like whilst soaking up all the rich history of the famous Ceylon tea.
