Glenys and Kevin Johnston have created The Mudcastle from 20,000+ mud bricks handmade from the clay on their property. The result is a unique property for groups of friends or family to book for an "entire castle hire" , a wedding, conference or private function.
" If a bride ever wanted to feel and look like a princess on her wedding day then this elegant castle is the best place in the world to be on that special day. I rate the Mud Castle as the best place in NZ for extra special occasions."
