About Lythwood Lodge
Just one and a half hours from Durban and five hours from Johannesburg is Lythwood Lodge, a 4 star boutique country hotel estate nestled in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Far enough away, for you to feel as if youve left it all behind. Close enough for a quick mid-week break.
Tucked away in the middle of farmlands and forest right on the Midlands Meander, Lythwood Lodge offers big trees, open lawns, beautiful gardens, natural forests and rolling hills. Pastures with cattle grazing lazily. Small game also make an appearance. Fresh air and wide open spaces. Occasionally, we are shrouded in mist, giving you that otherworldly English Countryside feel.
Lythwood Lodge offers a variety of accommodation from self-catering cottages to executive suites, all of which meet top global standards. Each room has an en suite bathroom with separate shower and bath (excluding the two wheelchair friendly rooms, which have a large shower area only), and is heated either by a wood or gas fire.
The furnishings are manufactured from mahogany wood to an exceptionally high standard and provide an ambience which is both restful and comfortable. Artwork is generally commissioned by local artists and varies from grand landscape designs in the Premier rooms to more intimate animal or bird designs in the veranda rooms.

Lythwood is close to golfing, mountain biking, walking and hiking trails and other family friendly activities. If its 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.
