There are so many reasons that we fell in love with Lythwood… from the incredible avenue of enchanting trees to the fields of endless grassy hills. The owners, staff, and overall service at Lythwood are absolutely amazing. The final deciding factor and the cherry on the top was the Avellini glass tent with cascading water flowing down.
