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 and Meadow rooms which have a large shower area only). 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.
