The Bend Country House is a unique country venue. We can take no credit for the fact that the setting is unparalleled in the Midlands and never disappoints those of us who are fortunate enough to experience it.

We are confident that your special day will be an unforgettable experience for both you and your guests.

Why choose The Bend Country House?

We are dedicated to providing you with personal service and assistance with all the details of your wedding. Our only objective is to ensure that the bride and groom and all who care about them have a truly happy experience – one on which to build a long and prosperous future.

The Reception room dates from the 1920’s. It was converted from the old Milking Parlour and we have tried to retain the ambiance of the space. The beautiful rafters add character to the interior and we have tried to enhance rather than alter the building. We have a bar with perhaps the most unusual bar counter in the Natal Midlands – an 80-year-old section from one of the Tibetan cypresses on the river bank! The atmosphere is warm and relaxed and we have hosted many happy and memorable weddings.

Adjoining the Reception Room is a charming Stone Chapel with the capacity of up to 150 wedding guests.

Our new Shabeen venue offers an alternative and unique setting in the converted barn with the original stone walls and cozy nooks where the feeding stalls once were.

The 1400 Hectare Estate provides many beautiful photographic opportunities including the banks of the river, a slave bell, horse paddocks, old farm buildings and a mature garden. The magnificent staircase in the Main House has featured in many beautiful bridal pictures, as has the suit of armour.
