Weddings & Functions
Backsberg lies on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountains, equidistant from Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. This is the ideal location to host a function in the heart of the Cape winelands surrounded by history and old Cape Heritage, spectacular views and a wonderful ambiance.
THE BACKSBERG CONFERENCE AND FUNCTION VENUES
The estate is entered through an archway formed by magnificent old trees that line the mile long driveway and leads to manicured lawns and garden beds bursting with colour and fragrance. Explore the beautifully maintained gardens revealing a wedding photographers dream. Follow a pathway to the maze or an alcove enveloped by the branches of Plane trees and soak up the ambiance of true Cape Heritage and history.
Neville’s Place at Backsberg, our Function venue, was opened in November 2006. Sliding partitions transform this versatile venue into smaller areas to accommodate groups from fifty up to two hundred and fifty guests. High ceilings and wooden floors enhance the overall appearance and ambiance of this large venue. There is access via three separate doors onto a verandah overlooking the estate gardens and mountains in the distance. Folding doors open into a magnificent courtyard boasting and a cozy corner complete with a feature fireplace. An elegantly decorated, versatile annex with a feature fire place and private entrance from a verandah overlooking the Manor House is linked to the venue by a covered passage and may be used as a Private Boardroom, Reception Area, or Children’s Entertainment Area.
The options on this beautiful estate are endless with allocated lawns, surrounded by nature and breathtaking views. You may choose your outside venue.
An exclusive venue with a definite “wow” factor, the historical Vat Cellar, is also available for Wedding Ceremonies and smaller functions.
