The historic farm, Nacht Wacht, is situated 12 km from the picturesque village of Arniston (also known as Waenhuiskrans) and only 8 km from bustling Bredasdorp and close to the southernmost tip of Africa. This gracious olden farmstead is a place of mystery and memories and has been in the Albertyn Family since 1885.

Take advantage of the Nacht Wacht Venue for corporate get-togethers, a party with friends, or for exclusive Arniston weddings. Say ‘I do’ in the colourful Overberg countryside. And bring a special kind of farm chic to your wedding reception. Let Melanie make the day a truly special one, from the sumptuous food to the fairytale décor. Melanie offers the bride and groom a complete all-in-one wedding service. With stately buildings that date back to the 1600s, surrounded by the vast Overberg countryside, Nacht Wacht allows you to take a step back in time.

“Live with passion, live everyday”

“I suddenly envisaged my restaurant where the old, dilapidated milk stables had been standing. All this time they’d been there, absolutely perfect. I just never saw the potential until that day.”

Melanie Albertyn
