About Cranford Country Lodge

77 Old Main Road, Curry's Post
Midlands, 3290

Cranford Country Lodge and Wedding Venue is the perfect setting for country-chic weddings. Nestled in a picturesque valley near Curry’s Post, in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands, we are surrounded by enchanting gardens, rolling hills and magical forests.

As a venue, we go the extra mile to create the event you have always dreamed of, offering elegant facilities that exude country charm, a team of experienced staff that provide service excellence, not to mention unprecedented natural backdrops that will impress you and your guests.

Along with our package we have provided you with a guide to other important considerations and information that we feel crucial for your special day. Our team at Cranford Country Lodge is readily available to provide you with helpful suggestions and other general information about the area and your wedding day. Please feel free to contact Cranford if you would like our wedding package.

Our beautiful chapel looks out onto the picturesque midlands countryside and seats 150 people. The view from the chapel overlooks our largest trout dam. It is an open thatched church with natural stone found on Cranford farm. Alternatively you could have your ceremony in our beautiful gardens. We have a charming lapa-area which is great for your pre-reception drinks. Cranford offers their brides and grooms a choice between two very different, yet equally unique reception venues. “The Barn” with its rustic open rafters, stone arches and fire places, has a wonderful country feel and is a fantastic space for a wedding reception. “The Great Room”, which was completed in April 2015, is equally as special. Its white roof and walls offer a ‘blank canvas’ on which you can create your dream wedding reception. The subtle, yet charming details make it a stylishly innovative and contemporary space. Your reception should be one to enjoy and both our venues have been tastefully decorated to suit a variety of tastes. 

We can seat a maximum of 150 guests in both of our reception halls. If your guest list exceeds 150 then we have a levelled area where a marquee can be set up overlooking the dam.

Our Chef has worked locally and internationally in top and award winning establishments. She is able to design menus to cover every budget and is able to entertain any preferences and dietary requirements, using the best ingredients available, her hands on attention guarantees a perfectly prepared meal for your function.

In addition we offer beautiful B&B accommodation and can sleep up to 60 guests on the property. The effortlessly styled rooms and cottages create a seamless balance between country-cottage and country-chic. If more accommodation is needed we can use all the neighbouring B&B's in the area.

Our enchanting landscapes, giant oak trees and grazing appaloosa’s provide the picturesque backdrop for a carefree wedding in the country. 

• If your guest list exceeds 150 then we have a levelled area where a marquee can be set up overlooking the dam. • Cranford Country Lodge has accommodation for 60 guests, which includes a Honeymoon Suite • The Bridal Suite is complementary to the Bridal Couple on the night of their wedding. • Beautiful stone and thatched chapel that overlooks our largest trout dam • Our thatched lapa is great for pre-reception drinks and the cutting of the cake. • Cranford offers their brides and grooms a choice between two very different, yet equally unique reception venues.

By Chanel & Clint Masson, on 05 Dec 2014

We were married at Cranford Country Lodge - what am amazing day! Everything went perfectly, the Cranford Team were wonderful - like little elves that got everything done without actually looking like they were doing anything. The venue was wonderful, the event management was great, the food was excellent and the service was phenomenally excellent. We could not have chosen better for our special day - thank you to everyone at Cranford who made such a special day so beautiful! Chanel & Clint Masson – 7th May 2014

By Carla & Warren de Kock, on 05 Dec 2014

Warren and myself had our fairy tale wedding day at Cranford on the 31st of May 2014. We could not have asked for a better venue at which to have our wedding. The staff are amazing!! BUT a special THANK YOU goes to Claire and Abongile. Claire and Abongile were efficient, friendly and extremely helpful when it came to the booking of accommodation for our guests. The rooms and facilities provided at Cranford is of great standard! For the event itself I have no words other than WOW!! The food and service from the staff on the day was phenomenal. We have received nothing but compliments from all our family and friends. Cranford could not have been more fantastic! The small little touches they provided like handing me a thoughtful gift the morning of our wedding will not be forgotten. Thank you very much to the entire Cranford Team for providing Warren and myself with the most incredible wedding we could ever have dreamed of! Carla & Warren de Kock – 31st May 2014
