Cheese Factory

This historic two-storey building is set among the homestead gardens and is close to the café. The top floor can be used for small functions, accessible by external stairs.


The Cheese Factory is a small sized room accommodating up to 30 seated and 40 standing in the upper level of the building (there is no access to the lower level). This space is one of three heritage buildings and offers lots of charm with original brickwork and an exposed wooden beam ceiling.  It is located within the manicured wedding gardens and only accessible by external stairs.
