Our stay here for a family wedding was an absolute treat. Beautiful venue and surroundings, well served and managed, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms comfortable and spacious. Highly recommend this venue for a wedding. Suggestions: a smooth pathway through the carpark would help the ladies with their high heels, a porter to help with the heavy luggage at reception...

Such a beautiful setting. So close yet so far from the madding crowd. Peace & beauty surround you in this sophisticated yet farm setting. Nothing over the top just elegantly comfortable. Staff outstanding. Food delicious.

Loved our stay here, staff was extremely professional and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious and the accommodation very comfortable. We went in winter and it was very cosy by the fireplaces... a definite must see for a relaxing long weekend.

With the picturesque setting and relaxed vibe our group of 105 friends and family gathered to celebrate a 50th birthday party. From cocktails by the fountain and croquet on the lawn, to a festive party in the hall and exceptional food, we could ask for...

Hi Yalden. I apologise that you experienced poor water pressure during your stay at Lythwood Lodge and for the incorrect explanation given. After an investigation, it was discovered that the water main leading to your unit had torn resulting in only your room having less than adequate water pressure. Anything less than a perfect stay is unacceptable to us at...

Picturesque and serene. We enjoyed our overnight stay for a birthday party. The hosts were very accommodating and relaxed. Our bed was comfortable which is always important. We loved the cows roaming the fields, grazing. We enjoyed croquet on the lawn. The established trees were beautiful. Most enjoyed and highly recommended especially as a wedding venue

My wife and I got married at Lythwood 10 years ago and it was handled beautifully. This time we took our 3 year old twins for a few days while I was working in PMB.
