This grand colonial-style house was built in the 20s and is surrounded by magnificent gardens and beautiful ancient trees.

The tastefully refurbished house has five individually decorated suites, each of which started life in a different guise from the children's nursery to the resident priest's quarters. Dinners using fresh estate produce are served by a roaring fire in the grand lounge.

Activities on offer include riding, quadbikes, mountain biking and cultural visits to surrounding community projects. The Thyolo Sports Club is next to the estate and guests are can use the facilities at the club, including a nine-hole golf course, tennis and squash courts and a swimming pool. We also recommended a picnic on Thyolo Mountain, with panoramic views to the Lower Shire Valley and Mount Mulanje.

Why We Love It

The estate has been in the same family for generations, and members of the family still run the tea and coffee production.
