Huntingdon House

Huntingdon House is a lovely old family house on Satemwa Tea Estate in Southern Malawi's Shire Valley.

Malawi

Huntingdon House is a grand colonial building on the Satemwa Tea Estate, south of Blantyre in Southern Malawi. The house was the home of Mclean Kay and has been restored combining modern comforts with historical antiques and furnishings. The gardens are huge and meals are often taken on the lawn or verandah. This is a gracious house and you will feel like an honoured family friend.

There are five suites with lovely bathrooms, having bath tubs and showers and luxury toiletries. Each room is individually styled and decorated with names reflecting the original residents: Mothers Room, Planters Suite and The Chapel. Most rooms now have king size beds. Relax and enjoy the colonial splendour of the house and let the friendly staff look after you.

This is an ideal base to tour Southern Malawi from, being a short drive takes you to Blantyre city. It is easilly combined with the historical town and plateau of Zomba, hiking at Mount Mulanje or heading south down the rift valley escarpment, onto the Lower Shire Valley floor and the game reserves of Majete, Lengwe and Mbwavi.

You get free use of mountain bikes to explore the estate and there are 150 miles of walking trails nearby through the estate and adjoining forests and hills. Tours of the tea and coffee estate can be enjoyed here too, including, of course, tastings!
