Franschhoek Wine Valley

Gooding’s Groves Olive Farm

The Barn Conference Centre and Function venue is separated from our main guesthouse and is nestled among the olive groves, ensuring privacy and comfort. The glass doors and north and south facing verandas offer breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges, as well as our farm dam. The Barn is fully equipped for conferences. It can accommodate 10 – 50 guests depending on the format of the function or conference set-up. This function room is also ideal for small wedding receptions or celebrations as well as private dinner parties flowing onto south and north facing verandas.

The Manor House function room can comfortably accommodate small groups of up to 20 delegates and forms part of the reception area of the guesthouse. The Manor House offers views of the surrounding mountains and a lovely veranda for breakfasts and tea breaks. The lounge in the manor house has a central fireplace for warmth on those cold winter days.
