Accommodation | Wedding Venue | Farm Stay

Whether you are looking for an intimate venue for your destination wedding, want to relax in comfortable accommodation, or wish to experience a farm stay on a citrus farm, Francine’s Farmhouse & Venue, near Hoedspruit, is perfectly positioned to provide exactly what you want.

A fresh farmhouse quiche can be enjoyed on your porch or under the trees with the fresh mountain air and views. Alternatively, you can order heat-and-eat meals from our small restaurant, attached to the farmhouse.

Leave feeling enriched

The rows of citrus trees that surround the farmhouse make for wonderful, safe walks. Francine’s Farmhouse boasts a lovely oasis garden, with various trees, our favourite being the Mahogany for its shade, a peaceful place to sit and watch or listen to the diverse Lowveld birdlife.

The ambience of the farm venue encourages a happy, relaxed get together. We are located in the African bush 15 minutes outside of Hoedspruit, with beautiful vistas of the mountain for our guests to enjoy. Events and parties have long been hosted here, but in 2015, the first wedding was hosted at the venue.

The citrus orchard is the perfect backdrop to your wedding photos, with blossoming fruit trees or laden branches in the orchard creating memories for your special day. Our guests are spoiled with products from neighbouring farms and local shops.

Whether you want an intimate reception or a large celebration, we will make sure it is a day to remember.
