Celebrating those moments that matter
Rusty Gate is ideal as an extraordinary venue for small intimate weddings or special celebrations such as birthdays, family gatherings, bachelor’s parties and even corporate functions or team-building events.
For such events we will reserve the Eagle’s Eyrie for your exclusive use.
This will include:
- Peacock Place (reception hall)
- Chit-Chat Lounge (lounge and bar area)
- Outside entertainment area (including the firepit and braai)
- Swallows’ Nest (bunkhouse accommodation)
- Communal kitchen including two Smeg gas/electric cookers, fridges, freezers, microwave oven, urn, cooking equipment and utensils, scullery and basic crockery, cutlery and glasses for up to 80 guests
- Our special wedding terrace overlooking the Helderstroom valley
You are welcome to book some or all of the cottages for additional guest accommodation, or the entire venue to ensure exclusivity and privacy.
Peacock Place can seat up to 60 people using existing tables, chairs and benches in the reception hall, and up to 80 people can be seated comfortably inside the venue.
For larger events, seating can be done for up to 100 guests by expanding table arrangements onto the covered veranda in front of Peacock Place.
