Parties & Celebrations

Fairfield House is the perfect Nelson party venue! For a large function you can use the ballroom gallery and courtyard. For a smaller function, you can just use the gallery which opens onto the courtyard.

You are welcome to use our tables and chairs in any configuration you like, inside or out. We also have comfy couches on the veranda. We have various decoration items you can use if you would like to including our gorgeous chandeliers, fairy lights, bunting and beachwood hearts.

Whether its for a 21st, a 50th or a barmitzvah, you’re sure to have a wonderful celebration at Fairfield House. Our licence is until midnight.

Funerals & Memorials

Fairfield House is available for hire for funerals and memorials. Ceremonies and gatherings can take place inside or outside – in the meadow, courtyard or in the ballroom.

The kitchen is also part of the hire, so refreshments can easily be served in any space that the organizer chooses. Tables and chairs are included.

The beauty of Fairfield House, especially the gardens and grounds, provides a gentle, peaceful memorial venue in central Nelson. See why organisers love Fairfield as a venue.

"I love using Fairfield House to teach my Yoga Classes. Students often comment on the beautiful and safe atmosphere that the grounds and the house exude and this adds to the process of deeply connecting with themselves in their yoga practice. The rooms are spacious as well as warm with good central heating in the winter.”
