Lythwood Lodge


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.


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.
