FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU HAVE A HALL /INSIDE RECEPTION AREA AVAILABLE TO HIRE FOR WEDDINGS AND FUNCTIONS OR ARE WE ABLE TO USE THE INSIDE OF THE CASTLE?
We offer an outside garden venue only. There is no hall or covered area available to hire. You would need to supply your own tent/ covering, if required. The interior of the Castle is set-up as a museum and is not suitable for hiring out for functions.
IS THE GARDEN ONLY AVAILABLE TO HIRE DURING THE DAY OR ARE WE ABLE TO HAVE AN EVENING FUNCTION?
As we are situated within an Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife managed nature reserve we adhere strictly to the opening times of the reserve which are between 06h00 and 18h00, therefore evening functions cannot be accommodated.
WHAT IS THE COST TO HIRE THE VENUE?
The venue hire fee is dependent on a few things including type and size of function, and whether you may need access to the venue prior to the function for any set-up. Please include details of your function in your request and we will be able to forward you a quote for venue hire.
ARE WE ABLE TO COME AND VIEW THE VENUE?
You are most welcome to come and view the venue and we will endeavour to do our best to accommodate you either during the week or on weekends, but please do set up an appointment beforehand to ensure someone is available on site to receive you.
DO YOU OFFER WEDDING PACKAGES?
We offer the venue hire only. We do not work with any preferred service providers.
You would need to supply your own tent, tables, chairs, décor and catering to suit your budget.
