An informal, self catering, retreat in an idyllic setting provide a perfect base for families or friends wishing to discover the magical surroundings and history of Satemwa Tea Estate.
Sited on the slopes of Thyolo Mountain, this historic tea planters' bungalow is a relaxed, family friendly retreat surrounded by lush protected subtropical rainforests which are home to a variety of endemic and special species of birds making the property an ideal choice for birding enthusiasts. The house has four bedrooms and sleeps 9 people. Two extra beds can be arranged for an additonal cost.
While the house is self catered, Chawani guests are welcome to spoil themselves and book a meal at Huntingdon House or relax and allow the Chawani team of house staff to assist you in the preparation of your own meals.
With its beautiful manicured gardens and panoramic views – Chawani has been sensitively maintained to retain the rustic character and charm, which have made this property enormously popular with visitors to the highlands for decades. With fire heated water system and screed floors – Chawani is typical of farm living and what it may lack in design features and polished finishes, it more than makes up for in character and comfort!
