Dwarsvlei has recently restored the Nourse shed, a venue ideal for weddings, conferences, parties & retreats.


Wedding Venue

Are you looking for somewhere to celebrate your “I Do’s?” Why not have a forest wedding in our outdoor wedding venue, and celebrate with friends and family afterwards in our rustic farm shed reception venue? The Nourse Shed reception venue has a kitchen for catering, bar, and space to seat 200 people. Contact us for more information about having your perfect wedding at Dwarsvlei.

The Dwarsvlei venue is also perfect for school camps and team building. You are very welcome to hike and cycle round the 3,300-hectare farm. This might be the perfect place to host your next school or educational camp.


Functions Venue

The Nourse Shed is an old barn with unique charm. It has a uniquely constructed bar (The Alfred John Bar), power for music or other appliances, a basic catering kitchen, scullery, and space for serving food. There are tables and chairs/benches to seat 150 people. Please visit us and we will help you to transform your celebration into a one-of-a-kind event.

Unique Elopements

Do you and your partner just want to get away, into the open air, surrounded by nothing but the expanse of the Karoo? Leave the fuss and stress of a big wedding behind and rather concentrate on celebrating who you are together as a couple? An elopement in the Karoo might be just what you are after.

Package Includes:

  • Accommodation for the bridal couple and 10 guests for 2 nights
  • All Meals (Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner)
  • Sundowner Drinks in the veld
  • Intimate Ceremony
  • Celebratory Dinner
  • Photographer
