Luxury four star country accommodation, 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. Time to clear your head, gain a fresh perspective, recharge. Bond with family and friends.
Just one and a half hours from Durban and five hours from Johannesburg is Lythwood – a boutique country hotel estate nestled in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Far enough away, for you to feel as if you've left it all behind. Close enough for a quick mid-week break.
Tucked away in the middle of farmlands and forest right on the KZN Midlands Meander. A place where you and your loved ones can relax, have fun and make memories. 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.
Combine this relaxing country environment with our beautiful boutique hotel suites, meadow rooms, and our fully equipped, self-catering family cottages and you have the perfect mix.
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.
Then, when you're ready to explore ...
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.
Want to go shopping or try out the local cuisine? Lythwood is situated right along the popular KZN Midlands Meander. There are all kinds of special and unique arts, crafts and wares to be discovered.
The country wedding venue that helps you plan every aspect of your Midlands country wedding – planning a wedding is a much bigger undertaking than most brides realise when they start out. A million and one small decisions. At Lythwood we know and understand this reality. So we provide you with a dedicated wedding co-ordinator, and a selection of fun, interactive tools to help you plan your perfect wedding.
Are you looking for a conference venue where all the delegates will be away from the countless distractions in the city and at the office? A place where they can really connect. Build strong relationships. Then a country conference venue like Lythwood is perfect. So many opportunities for networking, brainstorming, and relationship building.
Looking at your latest mini-conference advert, I was reminded of my 70th birthday function at Lythwood three years ago. It certainly was a memorable occasion for all of us.
We are living in difficult times and all our businesses are taking the strain. Your industry has certainly had a rough deal. However, I wish you well with your mini-conferences and look forward to seeing you again when we have another function at your beautiful establishment.
I wish you and your wonderful staff good health until we meet again.
