Venue

The thatched barn is set in acres of garden behind a quaint fountain. The barn flows onto a large thatched verandah overlooking lush gardens. The barn can accommodate a maximum of 80 guests when formally seated. In summer months the thatched verandah can accommodate further tables. More guests can be accommodated for cocktail functions.

The barn features a spectacular fireplace which can be used for winter celebrations. There are 2 x toilets and a marble topped bar facility.


Gazebo

The large thatched gazebo adjoining a river features a large cocktail bar and fridge facilities. In summer month’s guests often choose to host the whole celebration at the gazebo and cobbled areas where they can enjoy the gardens, mountain and river views. The gazebo is used for serving cocktails and starters/canapés.


Parking

The large paddock can accommodate 50/60 vehicles. Municipal rules dictate that all vehicles must be parked on the property.


Chapel

The tiny, picturesque chapel is available for signing of registry.


Ceremonies

Guests normally choose to be married on the front lawn next to the arch. The gazebo can be used for the ceremony in rainy weather.


Setting up/deliveries/flowers/hired goods

Wherever possible we afford our clients time the day before a celebration (between 9am and 3.30pm) for deliveries of hired goods, refreshments, flowers and for setting up of the venue. We can set up the venue on our client’s behalf by prior arrangement for a nominal fee.
