Our family, 2 teenagers and 2 adults, spent 3 nights at Huntingdon House over Easter 2013. We had a very good experience at this unique location. Friendly staff, good food, stunning gardens, interestig rooms and the beautiful surroundings of a working te estate made this a holiday to remember. We also played a round of golf at the nearby Thyolo Country Club - an undulating 9 hole course, complete with sand greens and roaming herds of goats, set amongst tea plantations. A must do is to take a picnic basket - prepared by the kitchen staff at Huntingdon house - and go up to the Thylo mountain lookout point. Stunning views of the earea, mount Mulanje and the Shire valley.
- 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
