Kapiti Coast Wedding Venue


Wedding Location Wellington

Accommodating up to 200 people, the large two-storied barn, built at a similar time to the house, has been sensitively renovated to retain its character. The second floor has been removed to expose the barn's soaring sarked walls and exposed beams. The barn also features magnificent chandeliers juxtaposed against the original rustic interior, and views to the grounds, the magnificent native bush and beautiful farmland. Facilities include kitchen, wheelchair access, and outdoor paved areas. The barn is fully insulated and heated.
