Venue Hire | Life & Family Celebrations

Your Home From Home

Gatherings of family and friends are often too much to take on at home. Even if you have the time, energy and wherewithal to organise an event yourself, sufficient space and equipment pose their own challenges. Celebrating key points along the journey of life is part of the human experience, so offering our space and services to those who share our sustainability values is our pleasure. We’d love to help you celebrate important occasions like:

  • Birthday & anniversary celebrations
  • Memorials, wakes & end of life celebrations
  • Baby naming & christenings
Outside The Fold

The Cart House

Size: 10.5m x 7m
Features: Oak floor, bathroom, kitchenette.
Availability: please contact us to ask about availability

Stunning 18th century Cart House with solid oak floor, original beams and large patio doors allowing for lots of natural light, this is a warm, welcoming and nurturing space to celebrate and share with family and friends.

Our cafe can also be hired out in the evening (6pm onwards) or tables can be reserved during opening hours for more informal gatherings. 

A Word About Wakes

We provide a welcoming and sympathetic space for end of life and memorial celebrations here at The Fold and are just as happy to create a fully-catered event in a private space as we are to simply reserve a large table in the cafe for you, during our normal opening hours, with pre-arranged refreshments for your family and other guests. Here are a couple of touching testimonials we’ve received over the years:

“I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of all the family for the lovely wake that you prepared for my Mum. You did a fantastic job, and everything was perfect. Mum loved The Fold and it was one of her favourite places and we couldn’t have asked for a better celebration of her life.”

“Thank you so much for arranging such a lovely time for us. The whole atmosphere and all the organic refreshments were perfectly in keeping with my husbands approach to life, and so very much in tune with the rest of the day.”

Get In Touch
