Mid-Winter Events

Warm up winter with a brilliant staff event

A mid winter event at our estate is something quite special as you warm up in front of our beautiful stone fireplace.

With huge glass sliding doors, you will still feel nestled within the gardens but be cosy in front of the fireplace.

Mingle in front of the fire

Mid Winter
A great way to warm up over winter

Our covered courtyard is now fully enclosed with huge glass sliding doors that protect you from the cold but still let you see the outdoors through our huge glass walls.

Our stone fireplace is stunning and perfect for you and your guests to relax, enjoy and warm up on a chilly night.

Dine under a canopy of vines

Mid Winter
Winter or summer, our canopy of vines is green all year round

In our main function room, you and your guests will be dining under a canopy of vines that are green and lush all year round.

It gives you that outdoor feeling while being inside a warm temperature controlled events room.

This makes Markovina Estate a full all-year-round venue for comfort.

Dance the night away

Mid Winter
Or relax by the fire

When you book one of our corporate packages we include a DJ, or alternatively with our exclusive events you can choose to hire in a band.

Either way, we like to ensure that you and your guests are able to dance the night away or alternatively relax by the fire enjoying a nice drink.
