Neville’s Place
Our latest exclusive function venue, Neville's Place, opened in November 2006. Versatility is part of what makes our new venue so special: whether you want a professional corporate event, a small, intimate affair or a big wedding celebration, we'll take care of it all.

The main function area caters for smaller, intimate events, but can comfortably accommodate up to 300 people. For larger occasions, folding doors leading onto our magnificent courtyard can be opened. Depending on your needs, the courtyard can also be enclosed to create an uninterrupted extension of the main indoor function area. A large fire place in the courtyard and great protection from the wind makes this an ideal venue to use year round.

Neville’s Place is ideally suited for conferencing as the venue can be partitioned into 3 rooms for meeting, breakaway and dinning. Equipped with effective air conditioning it is ideal to host conferences on those warm summer afternoons or in the midst of the coldest winter days. The courtyard can also accommodate vehicles and display items that make it ideally suited for product launches and small product exhibitions.

Marquees and Bedouin Lawns
For smaller functions, the Manor House Lawn is ideal. Protected by manicured gardens, it caters for a 100 guests or less.

Please contact the estate to enquire about other available garden settings for your ceremony, function or daytime activities related to your function. Several team building facilities are also available and have proven to be a great hit with corporate clients. Backsberg lends itself to a relaxed and safe environment for corporate family day functions, with activities to cater for both the young and old.

Historical Vat Cellar
A unique aspect of Backsberg is the Exclusive Historical Vat Cellar. A red brick aisle running between rows of huge, old oak fermentation barrels, creates a historical upmarket and romantic ambiance.  This venue is well suited for the most intimate wedding ceremonies and smaller functions around a single, large table seating up to 80 guests

The Vat Cellar also accommodates cinema style seating comfortably which makes it ideal to use as an extension to Neville’s place for your conferencing requirements.
