Nestled in the sunny Nelson countryside, The Mudcastle is truly the region's most spectacular and memorable venue. Set in peaceful, romantic gardens and built from both adobe clay bricks made by the owners on the property and a revolutionary new building product, The Mudcastle is available for wedding and conference hire, private functions and corporate events.
Weddings at The Mudcastle are a dream come true. With on-site guest accommodation, indoor and outdoor ceremony sites, top quality catering and seating for up to 100 guests, The Mudcastle offers privacy, style and attention to detail at every turn. Rainbow friendly.
The get-away-from-it-all location of The Mudcastle also makes it an ideal Conference Venue. Although only 30 minutes from Nelson airport, the privacy and secluded setting of The Mudcastle makes it ideal for annual conferences, team building weekends, staff functions and fully-catered directors' or partners' lunches.
When booking a private banquet at The Mudcastle, almost anything goes. With the owners' extensive theming experience and an array of Banquet Meals and music facilities available, The Mudcastle will deliver a memorable event whatever the occasion. Family reunions, birthday parties, wedding anniversaries, Dinner Theatre or themed parties, whatever you've got in mind The Mudcastle provides the venue and the knowledgeable assistance to make it happen.
Like the venue itself, accommodation at The Mudcastle is special. Available only as an 'entire castle hire', small groups seeking seclusion have up to 8 individually styled rooms and suites tucked into turrets or set within their own wing offer a level of privacy, cosiness and romance not found elsewhere in the region. This venue can easily accommodate an entire bridal party and partners or a group of friends for a personally scripted Murder Mystery Weekend away from it all.
