Hiring The Shed

The Packing Shed provides a unique setting for less formal wedding parties. While this breathtaking location is not eligible to be registered for marriage services, it nevertheless presents a special opportunity to celebrate with family and friends in this historic building, surrounded by the sea, a multitude of various watercraft and breathtaking views.

As well as wedding parties, the Packing Shed is available for use by various organisations, including local charities, and individuals, for a variety of outdoor activities including overnight camping, bird watching, art classes, birthday parties and special occasions. Parties of up to 70 people can be accommodated and many local caterers including The Company Shed - can provide seafood and other lunches on these occasions.

Two launches are available for hire, with drivers, both with facilities for taking out disabled persons in wheelchairs. Our facilities include electricity from a diesel generator, which provides 240 volt power for lighting, heating water and a small microwave. Fresh water can be taken out for each event in containers.  Chairs, tables, and some crockery are provided. There is even a flushing toilet using rainwater collected from the roof.
