Our little farm beside the channel is about 300 acres, half of that is farmland and the other half, forest.

The Venue itself is 58 sqm plus 12 sqm in the kitchen area and the adjoined deck is approximately 65sqm.  So plenty of space for everyone.

We can comfortably accommodate 35 guest (restaurant style seating) inside The Venue or around 50 people standing (cocktail style) however, we do have an expansive deck that adjoins The Venue which could hold up to 60 guests.
