MALAWI - Huntington House at Satemwa Tea and Coffee Plantation

If you have been following my posts this week you will already have been acquainted with Paco the dog while I have taken you around the Satemwa Tea and Coffee plantation on Monday, shown you the birds yesterday, but today, I am taking you on a private viewing of Huntington House which is set in beautiful grounds within the tea and coffee plantation. This is truly the ultimate exclusive escape evoking a corner of Africa where time just stands still.  It arouses a romantic nostalgia for Malawi's past. By African standards, 100 years of history is seldom found. Every tea field, tree and building on this estate shares a tale and guests are invited to enjoy a glimpse of a bygone era, untouched by this rapidly changing continent.  CLICK HERE for information. 


Now Paco is begging that we will let him come along to and of course we did.


This is the front of Huntington House with this beautiful veranda to sit and relax, have a coffee, read a book or perhaps just gaze out at the beautiful gardens.



There are 5 bedrooms in the main house each full of character reflecting its rich history and unique charm. A very special place.










Although this is the formal dining room, should you choose to have your meals in your room then that is not a problem. Nothing is too much trouble when you stay at Huntington House. Now who wouldn’t want to be pampered a little?


This bedroom is enormous and it is often used by brides and grooms on their honeymoon  and has a wonderful big fire place and we were told that sometimes the pair never come out of their room!!



That’s Judith my daughter standing at the door.


Ah here is Paco again who made it outside as 
we followed him through the veranda doors.


I hope you enjoyed seeing this marvellous acommadation and tomorrow I will be showing you some things from the gardens at Huntington House.

As you know I am still posting from my first week in Malawi, however on my last week (week 4 of my holidays) I returned to Huntington House for a very special time with my daughter but that will have to wait until I get to that part in my Malawi story!

Thank you for visiting and also to all you leave comments.

  1. Hi Margaret - I'm back for the tea and coffee! Cute dog and amazing place, I love all the coloured walls and rich furnishings. I remember my time traveling around Malawi 25 years ago as a wonderful place - we were backpacking so never got to stay anywhere as nice as Huntingdon House. I'd love to go back to Malawi at some point and so lovely to make the trip with you.

  12. The bedrooms and beds are gorgeous, and very large. I especially love the beautiful blue chair and matching ottoman. I believe Paco is a Corgi, he is so cute! I love the branch shadows on the last picture. Also the beautiful blue tiles around the little fountain.

  13. Such a sweetie, that Paco is. Love the exterior and interior design of this home.

    Oh and Margaret...did you drop Google + and change your profile picture? I really really like the new image.

  14. Anni. I didn't do anything but goggle + suddenly disappears as did my complete profile! photo and followers in my side bar, so at least I have replaced my photos and I will eventually get round to doing my privilege again although it cannot be done as I had it before. I am annoyed at google + but I suppose there is nothing I can di about it.
