Sylvan Glen is one of the most well known hosts of unforgettable functions in NSW. Winning multiple state and national awards, it’s just different from anything else. Family run for the last 20 years by 3 generations, it has hosted weddings and every other type of celebration, using its indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly. Function spaces include a main building separate to the homestead which has two dining areas, a bar (although we are byo!), breakfast room, chill out lounge, space for buffets and dance floor - all leading out into a garden space complete with outdoor bar, giant chess and jenga and furniture around a small pond complete with fountain and ducks.
Additionally, there is a very unique dining barn. With a curved roof, sliding barn doors and two fireplaces, it is situated next to the guesthouse and guests cook their own bbq and eat here. With galvanised corrugated sheet and stacked log walls, fairy lights, chandeliers and a sound system complete the experience with everyone dining on antique tables and rustic chairs.
The gardens are large and contain century old oaks and many other European trees including retaining part of the original orchards. A tennis and basketball court as well as volleyball and croquet are on site too.
We offer fully coordinated wedding functions that last three days and two nights with catered accommodation. Scribbly cottage is self contained and the homestead can be too for limited openings.
