Lythwood Chapel

The sanctification of the marriage can be undertaken at Lythwood in our unique chapel that has been converted from an old dairy. Seating inside is restricted to 125 but on the concrete apron outside a further 100 or so can be seated. Its rustic character adds a certain charm which hallows the occasion. Most Christian denominations accept the venue but you should check with your minister of choice beforehand. Use of the chapel is available upon confirming our reception venue at no additional cost.

Khaya Centre

You have tied the knot and now it is time to celebrate! Let us help make this a very special day for you … The beautifully decorated venue is perfect for both day and night weddings and can seat up to 250 guests inside and a further 90 on the covered patio (340 in total). It has that special allure and does not require any draping; consequently you can avoid unnecessary further expense. We will only be too pleased to discuss your table decor requirements. All our table linen, crockery, cutlery and glasses are up-market and together with our padded seats and white chair covers, present an amazing “wow” factor. Allow our friendly and well trained staff to indulge you and your guests with our superb service.
