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. The conference centre can accommodate up to 300 delegates and is also ideal for country wedding receptions.
Lythwood was the winner of the “Best Hotel Reception in the Coastal Region” and was awarded Silver for “Coastal Boutique Hotel” by ABIA. Lilizela Tourism Awards voted Lythwood a finalist for “Service Excellence”.
