De Uijlenes: A lovely wedding and accommodation venue


Perched near one of the best vistas overlooking the Uilkraal Valley, lies the De Uijlenes Wedding Venue – in my opinion, the best location in the Overstrand for a rustic farm-style wedding.

The De Uijlenes Farm is a working vegetable and dairy farm, and has been for centuries, belonging to the same family all the while.

Situated on the farm is also the Nonnetjie Uijlhuis, which offers comfortable accommodation.

It has its own private dam and offers spectacular views of the Uilkraal Valley. There are boats available at the dam, but I would recommend a swim in its clear and warm waters.

The Nonnetjie Uijlhuis has six rooms on the ground floor - four of which are en-suite, and seven en-suite rooms on the first floor. All rooms come equipped with the finest linen and the comfiest towels.

The house, which can sleep groups of up to 40 people, is self-catering. You can choose to prepare and enjoy a meal in the large open plan kitchen and dining area, which is also equipped with an indoor braai, or, should you wish to enjoy the fresh Overberg air, you can head out on the stoep, to the outdoor cooking area that overlooks the dam. It’s also the perfect place to enjoy a traditional braai!

When booking the Nonnetjie Uil House, you will receive full exclusivity of the house, dam and the surrounding lawn – hence you are guaranteed total privacy.

Interested in the wedding venue? De Uijlenes is a family-run venue that is known for going the extra mile, and focusing on the couples’ needs.

A range of packages, including catering, are available, which should suit every need and taste.

The team at De Uijlenes love working together with couples, so that they can create an event that is both fun and magical. You can have your choice of two different venues on the farm that both offer the brilliant views of the countryside.

The surrounding Gansbaai area is packed with activities to do and places to explore during your stay at the De Uijlenes Farm.
