Lovely old house full of character makes for wonderful place for a relaxing stay in a secluded, peaceful environment. Maps are provided, and a guide if you would like one, for various walks around the tea estates, which are lovely. Use of the mountain bikes is free for those staying at the lodge as well. Doing the tea tasting at the factory is a fun chance to learn more about the whole process and is definitely recommended.
The food is delicious, the service was excellent and the grounds are lovely. Such a beautiful and relaxing place.
- 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
