Huntingdon House is really a beautiful place - the setting - in the middle of the beautiful Satemwa Estate tea plantations - the house, the lovely staff, the wonderful food.
I stayed in the Chapel, wow - what a wonderful suite. The beautiful bathroom, the high ceiling, the lovely big patio. Just most beautiful.
The whole feeling of HH is very british colonial, but not stiff at all. Very very lovely staff, good food in great settings - on the patio for breakfast, in the courtyard for lunch and in the dining room with a chimney for dinner. Where Chip - the owner and a lovely gentleman - joined us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Arguably the most scenically beautiful region of Malawi, The Thyolo district forms the heart of Malawi's tea producing region with rolling hills of immaculately cultivated, emerald green plantations and some of the oldest estates in the country. With magnificent views of Mount Mulanje and the Lower Shire valley to the west, Satemwa enjoys a temperate climate of the Shire Highlands and relaxed ambiance of a by-gone era. Visitors to this corner of Malawi cannot but help to be caught up in the colonial magic of the area and diverse scenery which ranges from tropical evergreen forests to riverine thickets and rolling hills. Huntingdon House was built in the 1920's and the estate has been in the Cathcart Kay family for generations with members of the family still running the tea and coffee production of the estate. The grand old colonial style house has been tastefully restored as a joint venture between the Satemwa Tea Estate and the Ulendo Travel Group. ... more less
