房客使用權限
The Pepper Cottage has a spacious living room / pantry and a wide kitchen, 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and some extra sleeping possibilities if necessary. The front of the building has a small veranda with a lovely bench and on the eastside a spacious terrace overlooking the surroundings, with a clear view of the Victoria Lake.

The house is surrounded by a lush green garden and a small estate where mainly pepper and other small crops are growing, which offers nice opportunities for calm walks along its borders and to sit, relax, meditate or practise yoga.

The Pepper Cottage is connected to the public drinking water supply and also has its own well with clean water. Hot showers are made possible by solar heating. WiFi is available throughout the property and the surrounding garden.

The front garden of The Pepper Cottage is partly covered with flowers and fruit trees. Large parts of the rest of the land are covered with pepper trees, some coffee trees as well as various trees such as Jackfruit, Kittul, Areca, Banana, Gliricidia, Mahogany, Bulu and Ambarella. In the lower part of the land water loving plants are grown such as: Rampe/Pandan, Ginger, Jams and Ayurveda plants and spices. We are still in the process of further developing the land and the paths.

A small stream (officially called Pita Ella) divides the land into two by a small gauge. On the slope of the land a small seating arrangement allow for relaxation in a cool and pleasant green environment. We are developing short walking tracks on the land.

Early morning but also throughout the day, the most beautiful birds can be spotted. At least 30 different species can be observed! In the house their is a bird information book for your reference.

In the trees next to the house a family of giant squirrels lives. You can see them running, playing and eating at eye sight. Also troops of monkeys visit the property from time to time. And in the evening and night you could hear a barking deer or the wild boars, though they do not come too close to the house.

In quiet corner of the land, on the old threshing floor (the so-called Kamata) we created a small area for meditation / yoga / relaxation. This is a great place to sit and enjoy without being disturbed. Only the sounds of bird, frogs, crickets and sometimes the temple calls can be heard and a little sound from the road in the distance.

其他注意事項
The setting up and running of The Pepper Cottage is completely done by involving the neighbouring community in Wepathana. The house has been set-up as a community based guesthouse, as tourism is a growing market in Sri Lanka we feel that sharing the profits from this with the local people is no more than normal.

The whole house has been renovated with the help of the village. All small and large renovations, as well as the maintenance in and around the property, is taken care of by contracted people from the village.

Assisted by local neighboring farmers, we manage the land and all the crops growing on it. Sharing a large parts (+60%) of the profits with them, in this way we boost their income and help them sustain in their livelihood so they can support their families even more.

Our food is often prepared by our next door neighbors and whenever we need a tuk-tuk we call one of the young guys from the area who will  be at the house in minutes. Or if Lucian has time he can drive you around as well.

By incorporating the local community this much in the operational aspects of the guesthouse, you really have a feeling you are part of the Wepathana village. A small glimpse into the live of the inhabitants we could say :)

To reduce the environmental impact of running this guesthouse, we decided to have hot water through solar energy and only to serve water from a good water filter instead of bottled water. Our farming activities are organic and we do not use fertilizer or pesticides. We separate our waste: we bury our organic waste and we bring soda bottles and other leftover waste to a collecting point in Digana for recycling.

Nilanthi, our direct neighbour is a great gardener but also a good cook and specialized in preparing Kittul Palm Jaggery sweets and syrup. Her two daughters assist her when needed. Samarathne her husband, works in the nearby Ayurvedic Hospital and can give traditional ayurvedic massages at the Pepper Cottage on request.

Next door is the house of Sandya, who lives their together with her daughter Kumudu and her husband as well as two small sons. Sandya and Kumudu run also two guest rooms and are both very good cooks. They serve authentic rice and curries in their small kitchen / dining.

Rukman, the carpenter, lives with his wife, son and mother in the village of Wepathana. He chairs the village association. His carpentry work is impressive. Most of the woodwork in The Pepper Cottage is done by him. The impressive 210 cm beds are made by him for instance. He sells nice wood carvings in his own small workshop in his house. Please do go have a look!

Seena and his wife are full time farmers. Seena maintains our pepper field and makes sure the estate is in great shape. Next to our land, Seena and his wife grow vegetables.

The local weaving mill (for sarees and table cloths) run by the government, the jeweller, the local women that hand-weave baskets and mats, the family making jams and sweets from nutmeg and the sewing lady stitching trousers and shirts are all within easy reach.

I came to Zwolle in 1999 after 20 years of working and living in Burkina Faso, Somalia and Sri Lanka. I love my house in Zwolle, it is cosy place surrounded by green in a busy town. A small paradise which I like to share with others. I care for people and I like to give them a good time.

A guided tour in our “private” estate, village walks in the area, tracks to the Knuckles Range, visit the waterfall for a swim, organize Ayurvedic massages and much much more! He can take you out in his tuktuk and will charge you 35 LKR per kilometer.
