Ellerton Bungalow

Ellerton Bungalow deliberately lacks many of the features associated with hotels but these are more than compensated for by a genuinely relaxed and informal atmosphere. It was built for the manager of a large tea estate more than 100 years ago and it retains the character and tranquillity of colonial days. The beautiful garden provides vegetables and fruit for the house. The countryside around Ellerton is crossed by many paths and tea estate roads, making walking and biking easy and delightful. The Main House has a large sitting room furnished with antiques and a dining room which seats 12. There are also 3 guest bedrooms, two doubles and one twin, all with their own bathrooms. The Valley House is near the swimming pool, and some thirty yards away from the main house. It has spectacular views and has three generous bedrooms, two double and a twin. A great advantage of the Valley House is the huge veranda which is a great place to sit and read. The swimming pool is a wonderful vantage point from which to gaze at the view 20 miles down the valley and is fed directly from their borehole

The traveller sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
