    This Cottage used to be a tourist rental cottage before the Bomb attack 2 years ago . I have shifted here 7 months ago ( 2nd March 2021) cleaned and setting up which was closed for the last 1 year.
    There are 3 acres having pepper, coffee, coconut (few) arecanut, mango, jack and so many .... This is situated 420 meters avove the sea level , 3 kms off Matale town. ( matale town is 360 meters above sea level) its a very calm and quite environment .
    I am a nature lover , bird watching enthusiast etc. And retired in last December . I am a member at FOGSL (Field Ornithology Group of Sri Lanka) and WNPS ( Wildlife and Nature Protection Society ). Yoga practitioner too.
    So I am so much interested about keeping up the natural environment , doing some fruit and vege for living .... But I need a little help in daily maintenance work and as a companion . You can travel with to wild life parks, bird watching, seeing cultural places etc.
    *** Those who want to work here like a co working, you are most welcome. ( come work and enjoy )
