                    [post_content] => Lythwood Lodge nestles in the hills of the mystical Natal Midlands providing the perfect setting in a 275-acre estate, bordered by the Lions River and natural forest in the form of an amphitheatre.

Lythwood Lodge offers a variety of accommodation, from self-catering cottages to executive suites. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with separate shower and bath (excluding the 2 wheelchair-adapted rooms which have a large shower area only) and a crackling fireplace. The furnishings are crafted from mahogany wood to an exceptionally high standard and provide an ambiance which is both tranquil and comfortable. Artwork adorning the walls boasts largely local artists works and varies from grand landscape designs, to more intimate animal or bird designs.

In-Room Facilities

As part of our exceptional service each room has local fresh fruit, homemade biscuits, tea and coffee facilities and satellite television. Each room has a deposit box for valuables. Laundry service, shoe cleaning and room service are available. The lodge is covered by a Wi-Fi network that enables you to stay in touch whilst resting or conferencing in the tranquil Midlands.

Facilities

Our main formal lounge, bar and restaurant have spectacular views of the gardens and amphitheatre surrounding the lodge, with a new outside patio area for those balmy evenings. Laundry service (not dry cleaning) and shoe cleaning are offered. Room service for meals and drinks is available. There is ample covered parking in our car park. The swimming pool is perfect for a dip on those hot days.

The Lodge also has a backup generator, meaning no disruptions when load-shedding appears!

Local attractions

Activities include croquet on the lawn, relaxing around our swimming pool, trout fishing in the dam or the river (bring your own rod), hiking trails through the indigenous forest and mountain biking around the Lidgetton Valley. If you have a day or more to spare, take advantage of visiting the various exciting places on the Midlands Meander- some of the arts are superb. Bosch Hoek, Sakabula and Victoria Club are golf courses that are about 30 minutes away. Our vast grounds lend themselves to fantastic team building.

                    [post_content] => A visit to Sue Tarrs Summerhouse at Folly Hill will transport you into another world. Situated not far from Hilton Village on a smallholding, Sue has created a tranquil, country retreat in which you can escape. The Summerhouse used to be an old milking parlour and many Winterskloof residents used to walk to Folly Hill to fetch their milk. The old milking pens and feeding troughs provide a backdrop to the carefully arranged displays.

Browse through a wonderful selection of gifts, decor items, selected kitchen and tableware as well as an array of silk flowers. Bring your container with you and have your silk flowers arranged.

We are Lou Harvey stockists, carry a selection of Nguni skins from northern Natal and a range of Thokomala hand crocheted blankets, scarves and beanies, made by a rural KwaZulu-Natal community.

The nursery specialises in old fashioned plants and perennials for the garden and has a wide selection of plants and roses suitable for a cold climate.

The old calf pens are now a cosy rustic restaurant, La Popote. Enjoy a lazy breakfast or lunch under the trees or tuck into bowls of hot soup in front of a fire on chilly days.
(Booking has become essential)
Gift vouchers are available.

                    [post_content] => Once described by Alan Paton as the most beautiful school in South Africa, Hilton College is situated on a 1600 hectare estate looking out towards the Karkloof hills. The Reverend William Orde Newnham must have been equally impressed when he arrived at the farm "Upper Hilton" owned by his friend, Gould Arthur Lucas, to open a "Collegiate Institution" on 29 January 1872. He came with his wife and three young children, Mrs Dore the nurse, some fifty boys and fifty pounds. The English public school system was followed - rugby and cricket were played, a mounted cadet unit was established and Hilton boys became notable for learning, gentlemanly behaviour and rugby football.

Under successive Headmasters, Hilton College has developed its own personality due to its unique heritage and magnificent environment. The Fleur-de-Lys and the motto "Orando et Labarando" (by work and prayer) were adopted by the second master, Henry Vaughan Ellis, an old Rugbeian, to show the affinity between Hilton College and Rugby School in England. The Hilton College of today is a far cry from that humble school of 1872. There are now 555 pupils and many special and excellent staff at the school makes it one of the leading schools in the country.

            [post_content] => Lythwood Lodge nestles in the hills of the mystical Natal Midlands providing the perfect setting in a 275-acre estate, bordered by the Lions River and natural forest in the form of an amphitheatre.

Lythwood Lodge offers a variety of accommodation, from self-catering cottages to executive suites. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with separate shower and bath (excluding the 2 wheelchair-adapted rooms which have a large shower area only) and a crackling fireplace. The furnishings are crafted from mahogany wood to an exceptionally high standard and provide an ambiance which is both tranquil and comfortable. Artwork adorning the walls boasts largely local artists works and varies from grand landscape designs, to more intimate animal or bird designs.

In-Room Facilities

As part of our exceptional service each room has local fresh fruit, homemade biscuits, tea and coffee facilities and satellite television. Each room has a deposit box for valuables. Laundry service, shoe cleaning and room service are available. The lodge is covered by a Wi-Fi network that enables you to stay in touch whilst resting or conferencing in the tranquil Midlands.

Facilities

Our main formal lounge, bar and restaurant have spectacular views of the gardens and amphitheatre surrounding the lodge, with a new outside patio area for those balmy evenings. Laundry service (not dry cleaning) and shoe cleaning are offered. Room service for meals and drinks is available. There is ample covered parking in our car park. The swimming pool is perfect for a dip on those hot days.

The Lodge also has a backup generator, meaning no disruptions when load-shedding appears!

Local attractions

Activities include croquet on the lawn, relaxing around our swimming pool, trout fishing in the dam or the river (bring your own rod), hiking trails through the indigenous forest and mountain biking around the Lidgetton Valley. If you have a day or more to spare, take advantage of visiting the various exciting places on the Midlands Meander- some of the arts are superb. Bosch Hoek, Sakabula and Victoria Club are golf courses that are about 30 minutes away. Our vast grounds lend themselves to fantastic team building.
