We welcome functions at Ryelands farm, and have found that the shearing shed is ideal for functions with up to 100-120 guests. It is an attractive, rustic setting and has many spots perfect for photos.

If you are looking for an authentic rural venue, this is the spot.  The oldest part of our shed dates back to 1840, and we have several other buildings of similar age.

A package can be arranged with shed; cottage, and camping.


As our shed is on a working property we have a few rules and regulations which must be followed before hire
