Semaphore, home to the majestic Glanville Hall, a historic manor rich with history and elegant architecture, as well as a hidden gem we can’t wait to unveil. Tucked behind the great manor is The Coach House, a 160-year-old stone stable that has now been transformed into Adelaide’s only urban barn venue.
Originally created to house the manor’s fleet of elegant horse-drawn coaches, The Coach House offers the ultimate rustic celebration space.
Featuring beautiful pointed stonework, rough-hewn walls and signature arched timber doorways, The Coach House oozes character and old-world charm. The barn has been lovingly filled with quirky décor, including softly draped ceilings and up-cycled pendant chandeliers (created using the barn’s original mezzanine ladders), making it a vintage boho-lovers dream and a truly unique space.
Opening directly into a cobbled courtyard, the Coach House is sheltered by a towering century-old Moreton Bay fig tree, the sprawling boughs of which provide the most elegant backdrop for a wedding ceremony, pizza party or even warming up beside a crackling fire pit.
Whilst it would nearly be hard to beat a ceremony under the great fig, they also offer the option of holding it on the neighbouring Elm Lawns or, subject to guest numbers, inside the Couch House itself.
The Couch House is a fully-inclusive venue, so the team have all your catering and beverage plans covered in their wedding packages. From grazing-table style wedding dinners and vintage high teas, to funky food trucks and fireside pizza parties, The Coach House is a venue that can be customised to suit any style of celebration.
The Coach House offers indoor/outdoor semi-seated pizza and street food receptions or cocktail-style receptions up to 150 guests. For a more intimate celebration, they can create a fully seated brunch, lunch, high tea or dinner reception for up to 42 guests.
With a unique rustic barn suited to almost any style, and a hospitality team offering so much choice, The Coach House is a venue that can just about do it all, now it’s just up to you to decide!
