Nestled in the scenic foothills of the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Mountain range, you'll find Lythwood. Originally spelt Lithwood. “Lith” being the Greek word for stone, which was so named because of an old quarry on the estate.
Lythwood was built in the mid-1940s using the skills of talented Italian builders from Prison of War (POW) Camps in Pietermaritzburg. Since then the estate has been developed to expand the hotel accommodation and add six tranquil self-catering cottages. An ideal getaway for longer stays.
Swimming, fishing, boule, gentle country walks, mountain biking and birding. Golf courses nearby. TGCSA 4-Star Country House.
An old dairy was converted into a rustic country chapel that is totally unique.
Taking a mid-week break at the Lythwood Country Hotel will put you a little off the beaten track, in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, along the famous Midlands Meander.
A place where life runs at a slower pace. Craftsmen ply their trade and sell their wares in rustic farm stores, filled with hidden treasures waiting to be discovered. Historic battlefields are also in the area for your to explore.
