Midlands Meander

Party Venue

We have a wonderful venue for a private party in the country? Does the sound of hosting your party in a Manor house that oozes old-world charm appeal to you? Then Weltevreden Manor should be your party venue of choice. Our Manor house is fast gaining a reputation for being the perfect party venue in the KZN Midlands where you can experience five-star service.

Our venue is an entertainers dream and the perfect place to host any adult party. Built back in 1994 by Tim and Ingrid Cawood, the Manor takes on that ancient feel with its cut stone exterior and Oregon pine sash windows. There is a story behind every piece of the architecture. The Cawood’s had a love affair building this dream home where their daughters Nicky and Sarah have many cherished childhood memories.

It really is like a home away from home where guests can experience beautifully manicured gardens, breath-taking views and ample open spaces. Nicky Cawood has opened up her beautiful home to the public and gives guests the opportunity to experience what they did as kids. This party venue is situated on a farm in Curry’s Post where you and your guests can have your privacy and enjoy a private event without distractions or disturbances.

One of the huge advantages of hiring Weltevreden Manor for your party is that you can bring your own liquor, which means that you can save a huge amount on costs. In addition, you have the freedom to pick and choose the alcohol that you and your guests prefer. We also offer professional bartending services.

Kitchen Tea Venue

Every girl has dreams of having their kitchen tea at a really cool or unusual spot as opposed to a restaurant. Our venue can be described as an oasis of tranquillity and calm that will relieve the bridesmaids and bride of all those pre-wedding jitters and stress. Weltevreden Manor as a kitchen tea venue is growing in popularity. Kitchen teas are the “happening” thing these days and our venue has hosted many of them.

A High Tea is a really great way to celebrate the impending nuptials of the bride. If you’re planning a kitchen tea for your bestie, speak to us about a curated package that suits your needs and budget. We also offer in-house catering and party planning to create that “individual touch” for your party.

Our team focuses on creating experiences that you and your bridal party will cherish forever. Weltevreden Manor is the ideal kitchen tea venue for a group of bridesmaids looking to escape the noisy city and spoil the bride-to-be. Whether you choose to host a regular or upmarket themed high tea, we can help make it memorable and affordable.

Bachelorette Party Venue

Planning a bachelorette party can be really stressful for some. There’s always that added pressure to please the bridal party with a memorable and engaging experience. The team at Weltevreden can help ease that stress by creating and adding an individual touch to your event. Whether the lady of the hour wants to keep it chilled, or indulge a little more, we can help her celebrate in style before walking down the aisle.

If you’re at a loss for what to do, we can help you create a package centred around fun-filled group activities or even more laid-back options like slumber parties or a karaoke evening. If you’re planning a weekend-long kitchen tea, there is no better option than the Manor house. We offer accommodation so your bridal party can sleep over after the festivities and return home refreshed the next day.

Bachelors Party Venue

If you’re looking for a private venue to host your best friend’s bachelor party, Weltevreden Manor is the perfect choice. Our venue offers large open spaces with no neighbours close by. Much like our bachelorette packages, our bachelor parties can be curated to suit you. We can put together golf tour packages, arrange for you and the guys to go fly fishing, or even bar-hopping around the Midlands Meander. 

WE also have enough accommodation for you. Lastly, don’t forget about food! Our catering options range from simple snacks to a full dinner. With a little bit of planning, our team can help you throw a memorable bachelor party that the groom and his friends will never forget. Whatever you have in mind, speak to us and we will do our utmost to make your vision come to life.

Themed Parties

Are you thinking of hosting a theme party that will be the talk of the town? We can help you get crafty and turn that average party into a fun and super-creative one. Deciding on a venue and theme for your party is not always easy. Fortunately, the team at Weltevreden Manor can help you with both. Our venue has hosted a few very memorable theme parties where fun was had by all.

From an Alice in Wonderland theme to a Spring Vogue theme, Nicky and her team can coordinate it and help bring your ideas to life. We can take your themed party to a new level of fun with our professional planning and attention-to-detail. Theme parties are a great way to add an extra level of excitement and creativity to any gathering. By choosing a specific theme, such as a particular decade, movie, or cultural celebration, guests are able to get into the spirit of the party and dress up, dance, and enjoy activities that are in line with the theme.

This creates a unique and immersive experience that brings people together and encourages them to let loose and have fun. Additionally, theme parties often feature special decorations, food, and music that add to the overall atmosphere, making them a memorable and enjoyable event for all. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just looking to have a good time with friends, theme parties at Weltevreden Manor are a fun and interactive way to do so. Whether you’re thinking of planning a Victorian-era style gothic theme, or a simple 80’s theme, our venue offers the perfect setting for whatever you have in mind.

Baby Shower Venue

Whether you’re planning an indoor or outdoor baby shower, the Manor has both beautifully curated gardens and an exquisitely decorated and luxurious interior for you and your guests to enjoy. Baby shower packages with or without catering can also be arranged.

If you don’t want to handle the coordination by yourself, our team will be happy to handle it for you. We pride ourselves on being a reasonably-priced, luxurious venue where the mom-to-be can relax and breathe before the little one arrives. Get in touch with us today. Nicky and her team would love to share their expertise and experience with you to mark this momentous occasion.

Party Venue Accommodation

The idea behind Weltevreden Manor is that you have the best of both worlds. You have a party venue that provides accommodation as well. The Manor house itself sleeps 14 at the moment. It will sleep 16 once our master suite is complete. Weltevreden can host up to 50 pax for a party venue. All our rooms have been done in this modern farmhouse feel and we’re constantly upgrading and keeping up with maintenance to ensure that our guests get the highest value when they do rent the house.

We will also be offering an in-house chef which allows guests to just put their feet up and really enjoy the space. In addition, you and your guests don’t have to stress about the drive home. We offer party packages with shuttle services for your convenience. Additionally, our catering service ensures that you need not stress about food.

We understand that many party venues are outrageously expensive to hire. At Weltevreden, we offer great value and affordability with packages that suit the needs of middle to higher class clients. In terms of it being a perfect party venue, Weltevreden is out on a farm in the Midlands where you and your guests can have privacy and enjoy your event with no disturbances. Feel free to get in touch with us for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the heart of KZN. We cannot wait to be part of your memorable event.
