The majestic surrounding mountains provide shelter from wind and afford an awesome backdrop. The barn itself, set behind a classic fountain, has an inviting Mediterranean ambience. It features a banquet-sized fireplace, hayloft and bar facility. The barn flows onto a large, thatched verandah overlooking the gardens. Smokers and younger guests prefer to be seated on the verandah.
The large gazebo bar surrounded by Cape cobbled paving overlooks a stream which flows all year. The gazebo is a perfect setting for pre dinner canapés and cocktails. There are numerous locations for photographs. A quaint chapel set amongst tall trees is available for signing of registry.
