Location and House Information The Weir House is located in the village of Ulapane, half an hour from the tourist town of Peradeniya. Ulapane is between the towns of Gampola and Nawalapitiya. The House is set on a hill and it is necessary to climb several steps to get to the house. We are sorry but we do not have wheelchair facilities at present. We regret that children under 8 years are not encouraged at the Weir House, as the house is built on a slope, and there are places where they could fall.
Best Time to Visit The concept of a 'best time' is not applicable at the Weir House, as it is pleasant all through the year. Since we are situated in what is Sri Lanka's 'Wet Zone' we get greater rainfall than in other areas. The positive side to this is lush greenery and amazing landscapes. Sri Lanka's monsoon season is in May/June and in October, but as with most parts of the world that are affected by climate change, weather patterns in Sri Lanka are now unpredictable.
Food We have set menus at meal time, and are happy to provide vegetarian options. You are also more than welcome to use our pantry if you do wish to cook. We do not sell alcohol at the Weir House, but you may bring your favourite tipple along and we will be happy to serve it to you. Pork and pork products are not served at the House.
Number of People The Weir House can only accommodate 10 people. We have a separate section for any drivers/guides who may accompany you on your trip.
What to Bring Sri Lanka is a tropical island so light, summer clothing is fine. However, temperatures could fall to 18 to 20 degrees celsius at night in the months of December and January, and you may need a light shawl or sweater. We provide insect repellant at the Weir House, but if you have a preferred brand bring it along. Insects are not really a problem at the House, but as we are out in nature, the rare, bothersome insect feels it has as much a right to be out there as you do.

Please let us know ahead of time if you have any special considerations with regard to food or any other matter, and we will oblige you to the best of our ability. We look forward to having you at the Weir House.
