An new enchanted wonderland awaits! Imagine wandering the secluded gardens, in a world of your own imagination. Maybe your Prince Charming will come save you, perhaps he’s already waiting for you at the alter. Climb the stone steps to the top of the tallest tower, and peer down at the forest surrounding you, seemingly filled with mystical creatures from centuries past.

This vision that was once locked alone in your private world, like a princess entrapped by an evil witch, is about to become a reality. Hidden away in the spectacular Basket Range region in The Adelaide Hills, The Manor will offer a magical escape for your special occasion, and it’s coming sooner than you think.

In March 2018, Adelaide’s former Camelot Castle built in the 1900s, will reopen to the public as The Manor after some much needed TLC. It feels like you’re travelling back in time as you discover the elements of medieval decor tied in with some rustic, glamour at The Manor. Interlaced among brick and creamy stone, a beautifully charming ambiance is created. Many people refer to this superb location as a “storybook destination” because of the character and history.

Located a short 25 minute drive from Adelaide’s city centre, the picturesque castle and stunning gardens are indeed an ideal setting for a romantic and special event. You will be able to host small intimate events right through to large-scale events with space to cater for up to 400 guests. From the fairytale wedding of your dreams to the murder mystery party you’ve put off because you can’t find the perfect venue, this is the place you’ve been searching for. The castle also has a cellar door, private dining rooms, multiple function rooms, enchanting waterfall and fountains, private courtyards and a bed & breakfast.

The cellar door will be offering up tasting platters with fresh, local produce, South Australian wine and there are talks of adding a restaurant into the mix down the track.
