About Us

We welcome you to an exclusive countryside venue for the ultimate special occasion. Nestled at the foot of the dramatic Limietberg, offering stunning scenic views on all sides, Soetendal Estate makes for the perfect location for your special day. This property, just 15km northwest of Wellington, off the R44, was founded in 1852 and the manor house, also on the property, is a National Heritage site. General J.B.M. Hertzog, founder of the National Party and South Africa’s first Prime Minister, was born in the manor house in 1866, and the house, painstakingly renovated, retains many of its original features.

The Estate

Set on a stud farm, Soetendal offers you the luxury of choice with several unique venues within the estate to celebrate your special occasion.
Besides being a fully operational stud farm, Soetendal Estate fulfils other roles as an exclusive-use wedding venue, corporate team building venue, and private party venue, as well as a venue for product launches, location filming, baby showers and everything in between.
We pride ourselves on being one of the most versatile and spacious wedding venues in the Western Cape. Our indoor and outdoor facilities are complemented by our highly professional team who will be on hand to help you organise every aspect of your event.
The venue covers 11700 sqm of fresh cut lawns, a 360-degree view of scenic mountains, two dams, and horses in the surrounding paddocks which makes this the ultimate countryside venue.
In total, the venue’s main hall can accommodate 300 guests seated, 500 guests for a cocktail function; and up to 50 guests in the adjoining conference/banqueting room. Soetendal Estate offers a wide range of options for any client as all five venues can be booked individually or together, dependent on your event requirements.
