We cater for small and large conferences, break-a ways, team building, executive board meetings or any special event such as birthday parties, family get together’ s and company year-end functions.

Or you may choose to enjoy the day next to our pool and make use of our braai facilities.

OUR STORY

Welcome to the warm hospitality and ambience of Cranko’s Creek, a privately owned home, occupied by the owners.  We are a destination venue with lots to offer. Situated in a mountainous, lush green landscape, you can visit us to enjoy the picnic & braai area, pool, nursery and restaurant.

We have a newly built Chapel across from the function hall. The function hall is the perfect venue for all types of functions including birthday parties and year-end functions. We also have accommodation that's on the same premises as the hall & chapel so your friends and family can stay the night.

At Cranko's Creek, we want to help you to make the dreams of your function to come true and that it can be one of the most breath-taking moments of your life.
