The Mudhouse

The Mudhouse, Sri Lanka

This is a property that is unrivalled by anything that you have ever seen before. It is set in a wonderful natural setting in an isolated area in the true heart of rural Sri Lanka.

The Mudhouse is a selection of well spread out eco-friendly huts, which are made primarily of mud as the name would suggest, and other natural materials blending comfortably with the surroundings. Each independent hut has its own private shower and toilet. Although there is no hot water or electricity, at night everything is illuminated with candles and oil lamps, making it incredibly atmospheric.

There are bikes to explore the area and the friendly staff are happy to take you out and explore the surroundings to get a very good insight into rural Sri Lanka. There is a small tank (lake) bordering the property, which is a great place to relax and the watch the variety of birds and animals. This is an ideal spot to have your breakfast.

The food is true Sri Lankan food with some unique local choices. Some of the food comes from their very own organic allotment. All meals as well as local sightseeing are included in your stay.
