We were staying nearby and after a tea tasting session at the nearby tea factory called in for lunch and what a delight it was.
We were all beaten by the chef who produced an excellent so called light lunch of great quality.Ellen was our waitress who looked after us very well and took us on a tour of this delightful property.
You will not be disappointed.

Stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a tour of Malawi. A great place to relax- staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely gardens and the tea estate to wander around.Evening meals a pleasure - beautifully set out on the verandah or on the lawn.A private patio adjacent to our spacious room was an additional plus. Would love to return.

Huntingdon House is on Satemwa Estate, a little drive from Mulanje and Thyolo, but I think it's worth the drive to spend the night here if you've just come down the great Mount Mulanje. After roughing it in the huts on the mountain, it would be pure luxury to sink into a huge four poster beds or soak in a beautiful Victorian style bath tub.
Unfortunately I didn't stay over at Huntingdon House, because I didn't know just how beautiful it was before hand. We stopped over for tea on a day after it had been raining and were lucky to be in a 4x4 or we would've gotten stuck in the mud. But the challenging drive was definitely worth it. We were greeted by the friendliest guys: Ibrahim and Amos. They made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We were taken around to see all the rooms and then sat down to have tea and hot scones, while we watched Amos setting up for a crocquet game on the lawn. It was picturesque!

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.

Stayed: September 2011, travelled solo

We had a wonderful stay at Huntingdon House in July 2011. The house is incredibly romantic and the grounds are beautiful and complete with monkeys running across the lawn. The staff are supurb, the food is delish and the views from the picnic spot are just stunning.
The house is a historic estate dating from the 1920's and surrounding by lush tea plantations. Chip the property owner is a delight to listen to over a glass of red wine in the evenings and the rooms are cosy and plush.
We stayed here in winter and, with the fires lit - it was just lovely. We also had the house to ourselves because of the fuel crisis in Malawi so got to play croquet on the lawn with G&Ts and live it up completely.
This is deservedly one of the best places to stay in Malawi if you're looking for a romantic treat and would be great fun if there was a large group of you. And if you're looking for a wedding location, this would be perfection!
Ahhh, writing this makes me want to go back ASAP!

Room Tip: The chapel room is BEAUTIFUL!
