Our venue

Set in the idyllic location of Tai Tapu, our venue is the perfect location for weddings, parties, corporate functions and much more. The neighbouring vineyard provides a picturesque backdrop which enhances your special day and provides fabulous photo opportunities. The venue has been thoughtfully designed to cater for most events with gorgeous gardens surrounding a beautifully maintained venue centre inside. We can cater for up to 150 sit-down guests and up to 200 for a standing cocktail event.

With its very own disco ball, the dancefloor is one of our best-kept secrets! Attached to the main dining area, it is centred in the middle of the building which helps keep external noise pollution to a minimum (which means that you can pump up your tunes without worrying about disturbing the neighbours)! The dancefloor also doubles as a fantastic buffet area with automatic curtains which open to reveal your banquet at the flick of a switch. 

For bridal parties, we have an exclusive bridal room with an ensuite bathroom and divine chaise longue. This room provides a cute, private space to freshen up and do those final touches to makeup, or for relatives to relax in if they need a breather. The chaise adds an air of glamour and is a fabulous setting for photographs of the bride preparing for the big day.

Attached to the dining and dancing areas is our intimate lounge with comfortable sofas. Due to its proximity to the dancefloor, less active guests can relax and enjoy themselves here with our tea and coffee buffet while still being part of all the fun. It's also a fantastic area for corporate events as a breakout space or for anyone looking for a quiet place to retreat to in the middle of a party. 

We recommend that you book a viewing so that you can get a full idea of exactly what Rossendale has to offer.
