Find ‘country rest’ at Lythwood, just one and a half hours from Durban and five hours from Johannesburg. Sometimes you just need a break, a change of scenery, a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and some time to clear your head and gain a fresh perspective.
Lythwood is a boutique country estate nestled in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. The perfect place to reconnect with family and friends or take a solitary mid-week break where you can escape and leave the world behind. Tucked away in the middle of farmlands and forest right on the KZN Midlands Meander, Lythwood combines big trees, open lawns, beautiful gardens, pastures of grazing cattle, natural forests and rolling hills, plus a new 6-hole golf course and plenty of fresh air and wide open spaces.
Combine this relaxing country environment with a stay in one of the boutique hotel suites, rooms or fully equipped, self-catering family cottages and you have the perfect place where you and your loved ones can relax, have fun and make memories. Lythwood is close to golf courses, mountain biking trails, walking and hiking trails and other family friendly activities and the famous Karkloof Canopy Tours are located nearby as is fly-fishing for that elusive trout.
If you prefer shopping or are keen to try out the local cuisine then Lythwood is perfectly situated along the popular KZN Midlands Meander where there are all kinds of unique arts, crafts and wares to be discovered. Once you’ve explored all the exciting activities on offer in the area you may just like to unwind in front of the warm fireplaces with a cup of tea and play board games or head to the bar area to watch the latest game and have a few drinks.
Lythwood is a popular wedding venue and their charming chapel makes for a classic country wedding. Conferences for up to 250 guests can also be arranged. Voted the Best Hotel Reception in the Coastal Region by The Brides Choice Award 2013 (ABIA)
