The Tea Cottage is a luxurious boutique resort situated in the midst of Greenwood Estate Nawalapitiya , sprawling over 200 acres of lush green tea plantation, 2750 feet above sea level in the central highlands of Sri Lanka. From the ancient past and bygone eras of Kings and Dynasties, the region of Nawalapitiya in the Kothmale valley had been famous for cultivation of herbal plants and spices for the royals. The confluence of rich soil and apt weather conditions augers well for the same. Plentiful water ways, Streams and Springs together make agriculture the main livelihood of the locals. British planters had first cultivated Coffee in these estates which were subsequently destroyed by an outbreak of a virus called ‘Hemileia Vastratrica’ in the year 1840. Afterwards, Tea was planted in these lands instead of Coffee as an export crop . The British planters managed the plantations till 1960 after which those were bought over by Sri Lankan planters.
Ancestors of the present management acquired the estate and managed it as a family concern since then. Picturesque surrounds of the property to be seen today are the results of unstinting devotion of the management who developed the property to an excellent tea plantation what it is at present.
