A unique, farm-style building within the working yard of Kande Horse Trails, The Stables Guest House offers 3 beautiful second-storey rooms overlooking the open stables with access to large covered balcony areas.
The Stables Highlights
The potential of Kande was recognised by proprieter John Hiam in 2001 and Kande Horse was erected on the shores of Lake Malawi using local materials. He has spent the following years creating the buildings that make up Kande Horse and due to the success of the horse riding business has recently opened accommodation in the form of The Stables Guest House, which is nestled in amongst the forest, allowing the trees to provide guests with respite from the African sun. The surrounding bush also offers fantastic walking paths if you are feeling active. Guests are invited to enjoy beautifully home-cooked meals each day, with much of the produce sourced from the private vegetable garden. There is a variety of different foods and warmly hospitable, staff will tailor-make meals to suit guests' taste. Meal times are flexible to suit activities planned for the day.
