Only have limited meeting space and it is not private but no other guests would be on the property. We would use the main Lounge and dining room for this. We can offer accommodation for 10 rooms for either 10 singles or 20 doubles sharing on single beds. With this we would offer morning & afternoo Tea, Coffee & Biscuits, breakfast, sandwiches or rolls for lunch and a buffet dinner – 2 choices of main course and 2 of pudding. This would be served on the veranda, we can also arrange for breakaway areas on the veranda and around the pool. Basically I can only manage 20 pax it they need to stay but 60 pax if no accommodation is required.The other option is a Wedding venue in a Tent with floor and all the décor chairs and tables etc plus food. For 100 guest but not accommodation. Guest booking us get a 50% discount.Both these option get exclusive use of the lodge and reserve.
