    Lythwood offers a variety of accommodation from family cottages to executive suites, all of which are en-suite and meet top global standards.

    Warm fireplaces and comfortable lounges to take tea and play board games; a bar area to watch the game and have a few drinks; or simply enjoy a riveting novel while we wait on you hand and foot. And if the mood grabs you, you can watch whatever takes your fancy on our selection of DStv channels in your suite.

    Lythwood is close to golfing, mountain biking, walking and hiking trails and other family friendly activities. If it’s swinging from the trees at the famous Karkloof Canopy Tours, or fishing for that elusive Trout, we have it all, just a hop-skip and a jump away.

These include our 6 well appointed Cottages for family stay that have 2 ensuite bedrooms, lounge, dining area and kitchen with outside patio and braai facilities. There are 8 newly refurbished Meadow Rooms. The Main Lodge Rooms are varied and some have private patios / lounge areas and disabled facilities. The Verandah Rooms provide peace and quiet with their own patios. The Honeymoon Suite is very spacious with 2 way shower, patio, dressing area and spa bath.

Here at Lythwood, our Khaya Centre venue can accommodate up to 300 people. But we also have the facilities to set up a smaller, more intimate events if that is what you are looking for. Indoor or outdoor wedding? Our rustic chapel, Avellini tent or 275-acre estate are yours. Want family and friends close? We have 33 rooms available. Romantic Lythwood in the mystical mountains of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands is the ideal setting for that extra special weekend-away wedding. Whether it’s a romantic garden ceremony, a ceremony in a rustic country Chapel or under the Avellini tent you are dreaming of, we have all the options. Same goes for your reception… under the stars or covered.

After a long day of meandering or conferencing, unwind in front of an open fire in the bar or on the patio while watching Reedbuck and Duiker frolic on the open lawns. The bar was used in the first Spud movie as John Cleese’s office.

Then move into our restaurant where the Table d’hote menus are drawn up daily by our head chef, Vusi Mkhwanazi. It is seldom that one gets the opportunity these days to relax, slow down and enjoy special company, while enjoying a 5 course dinner. Through redesigning the menu daily, Vusi can ensure the freshest and best quality produce from around the Midlands.

The setting of the restaurant is as varied as the cuisine Vusi offers. The restaurant staff will often take the restaurant outside where dinner can be enjoyed under an ancient oak tree and the twinkling stars of the night sky. The restaurant is always open to guests staying at Lythwood Lodge. Non-residents are welcome to come and enjoy Vusi’s great fare but bookings are essential.
