Fairy Forest

A secluded, outside catering venue perfect for small family or corporate functions.

The rustic Fairy Forest was built in the winter of 2020, during the lockdown due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. Through its development we were able to keep our staff employed, which adds to the venue’s special story.

“My son and I were the first campers here, during the lockdown,” says Jaco. “And I know that many more special family functions and other celebrations will be hosted here in time to come.”

The Fairy Forest offers a perfect place for a magical escape from city life and has become a popular venue for hosting smaller family functions, even more so, due to the convenience of not having to clean up yourself!
