Ideally situated in close proximity to Pretoria and Johannesburg, The Hertford is one of Gauteng’s best-loved getaway venues, offering beautifully appointed, overnight accommodation, hearty meals, glorious function facilities and tranquil conferencing and breakaway amenities.
Positioned on 23 hectares of a carefully tended estate, The Hertford combines old-world warmth, hospitality and charm with all the conveniences and modernity that its sophisticated guests have come to expect.
From the sweeping, romantic rose bushes and the stone façade, to the roaring fireplaces and luxurious finishes, The Hertford is an inviting and convenient setting, befitting of any occasion. In addition to providing for all your conferencing, year-end functions, banqueting, product launches and Sunday lunch needs, the Hertford is also the ideal setting for a magnificent country wedding.
Boasting an almost secret garden-like seclusion, The Hertford offers style and tranquillity. This idyllic setting is perfect for any occasion. But, possibly, most fit for a tailor-made wedding day. Whether it is a small, intimate get together you are looking for, or a lavish reception for up to 200 people, The Hertford will take the time to put your personal stamp on the occasion, and ensure that either the Rose Room or the Deanery is prepared with exquisite attention to detail.
The quaint stone chapel on the premises means that guests do not have the hassle of having to find their way to two separate venues, and if they would like to enjoy themselves to the full, they can book an overnight suite and depart at a leisurely pace the next day. An exquisite honeymoon suite is also available to the bride and groom, resplendent with a king-sized bed, flowers and bubbly.
The Hertford’s lush gardens are lovingly tended all year round, to ensure that gorgeous, memory enhancing photo opportunities abound. And since The Hertford has the ability to transform itself from an airy, ethereal summer venue, to a cosy winter’s dreamland, weddings held during any month of the year take on an especially warm ambience.
The Hertford’s flexibility as a venue also makes it ideal for christenings, special birthday celebrations, anniversary parties, small product launches, and many more unique events.
