Stormsvlei resort can offer you the full package when it comes to weddings, birthday parties or events. When you book a function with us, the whole resort is available to you and your guests. Guests can sleep in comfort in any of our cottages or camp next to the Sonderendriver. We have 2 reception areas and 2 churches to choose from.

The Bloekom

The Bloekom venue is on the banks of the Sonderendriver.  It is a rustic building built partially out of wooden poles with an open plan architecture.  On the river side there are large stacking doors opening up onto the river.  The view is beautiful with lots of green grass, the river flowing past and a natural forest on the other side of the river.  The Bloekom lapa can comfortably seat 120+ guests.  This venue is ideal for use between Spring and Autumn.  The large kitchen is fully equipped with all needed equipment to host a wedding, birthday party or function.  The licensed bar is fully stocked.

The Smithy

The newly renovated Smithy will take you back to the 1800s.  This interesting building is packed with paraphernalia and antiques.  The old Ransomes corn-mill as well as the steam engine were beautifully renovated and are part of the architecture.  Next to the large forge the 2 original bellows and anvil can still be seen.  The building has lots of wooden beams, stone brick-work and a corrugated iron roof.  The Smithy is ideal for weddings in Autumn and Winter.

Stormsvlei Church

The church was erected in 1890, but disaster struck when a veld-fire burned the church to ashes in 1983.  It was rebuilt in 1990. The building entertains lovely thick walls and a steep pitched thatch roof with wooden beams showing.  The thatch roof church is ideal for those couples that prefer a traditional ceremony.   The church can seat up to 120 guests.  Today the church is mainly used for weddings, baptisms and funerals.

The Boskerk

The Boskerk is situated in a forest.  When seated, the guests overlook the Sonderendriver-crossing known as the Kompanjiesdrift.  The Boskerk is ideal for those who would like a ceremony in nature – with only birdsong and the flow of the water to be heard.  The Boskerk can seat 120 guests.


The Stormsvlei Resort is the ideal venue for hosting large music festivals or other events.


Stormsvlei has got an ideal setting and is easily accessible from Cape Town International (160km), George (200km) and the Boland Interior – Worcester (100km). All access is via tar roads.


Over and above the bathrooms of the self-catering cottages, there is an additional 4 ablution blocks with hot water and electricity.  The ablution blocks are unique in the sense that they give privacy when being used but still have outstanding views.  They are set strategically and no matter where the main events would be taking place, there will always  be an ablution block in close proximity.  There are a total of 17 toilets and 15 showers.  There are large grass terraces for setting-up big stretchy tents and stages.  Stormsvlei is fully electrified with Eskom power and has a back-up generator.
