CRAIG APPIN BUNGALOW

Hidden amidst one of the earliest plantations in the hill country is a beautiful old colonial residence that was home to planters in the days of British rule. A sea of green ripples across the landscape, with wave upon wave of tea in neat rows leading the way up to clear blue skies. Ancient Spathodea trees ablaze with flame coloured flowers stand tall, side by side with spruce and pine. Down in the valley below the famous colonial landmark of the hills – the Darawala Club, continues to host games of cricket as it did in its heyday. From the perfectly manicured lawn of Craig Appin Bungalow you can breathe in these sights of tranquillity and believe that you have indeed, turned back time.

A luxurious retreat for those who wish to relive the past on an authentic journey to days gone by, the charms of yesterday, in all their glory beckon you inside. The decor is distinctly colonial with furnishing and fittings to match. From intricate chandeliers to exquisite tapestries; the paisley print embossed drapes to soft pile carpets and the grand old fireplace – a little bit of old Scottish country home will meet you at every turn.  The soft golden glow of lamps flicker against the polished wood; the dark duvets contrast sumptuously with crisp white pillows.  The mood is yesteryear, but at Craig Appin all the indulgences of today are never forgotten.

A BEAUTIFUL OLD COLONIAL RESIDENCE THAT WAS HOME TO PLANTERS IN THE DAYS OF BRITISH RULE, IT IS NOW A LUXURIOUS RETREAT WHO WISH TO RELIVE THE PAST ON AN AUTHENTIC JOURNEY TO DAYS GONE BY
