One of the defining aspects of the Weir House is the greenery that surrounds the property. Undulating areas of lawn, shrubbery and forest creates a feast for the eyes.
Our nod to Sri Lanka’s heritage lies in our spice gardens. The hillside slopes are covered in cinnamon and clove trees, pepper vines that fall of gliricidia bark and Arabica coffee bushes. Join our manager on a trail of discovery through the estate, as he talks you through the history of our country’s spice trade and the details of how spices are cultivated. During harvest time children will enjoy seeing the green of peppercorns, the flowers on clove trees, and the red berries of coffee.
Our organic vegetable garden is situated above the house. You may spy fresh produce being delivered to the kitchen door, or spend time chatting with our enthusiastic gardener about what he’s currently growing.
The gardens around the house are dotted with ferns, flowers and fruit trees. Olive, avocado, rambutan and guava trees are randomly strewn around the property. Garden seats allow you to slip out with a mug of coffee and a book, to capture a quiet moment amidst nature. Or take a dip in our pool and soak in the grandeur of the surrounding vistas.
The gardens are also full of birdlife, scampering squirrels, the occasional family of monkeys and with a spot of luck, a fleeting glimpse of a resident deer.
