Hertford Country Hotel Wedding Venue in Muldersdrift is ideally situated in close proximity to Pretoria and Johannesburg and only a mere 10 minutes away from the Cradle of Humankind. This idyllic setting is perfect for any occasion, but possibly most fit for a tailor-made wedding day. Whether it is a small, intimate get together you are looking for, or a lavish reception for up to 200 people, The Hertford Country Lodge will take the time to put your personal stamp on the occasion, and ensure that either the Dorset or the Devon is prepared with exquisite attention to detail.
