Zilvermijnbosch Estate

Since acquiring the estate, Cindy Barry had a passionate vision, to restore the farm, its untainted natural surrounds, and to recreate and reintroduce the original name, Zilvermijnbosch 1771.

In her pursuit to be South Africa’s unrivalled venue, Cindy has created a fusion of old and new, retaining the rustic charm and adding touches

of opulence. A blend that she thinks works beautifully together.

Step into a world of eclectic contemporary allure, complimented by antique chandeliers and checkered black and white marble floors, finished off by flower arrangements in beautiful marble urns — after being surrounded by age old oak trees. Twenty-Eleven marks the rebirth of Zilvermijnbosch 1771.

Whether you choose an intimate garden ceremony or a glamorous evening affair, Zilvermijnbosch will captivate and embrace your imagination.  Just 15 minutes from the resort town of Hermanus, within one of the floral kingdoms of the world, Zilvermijnbosch is timeless beauty and a true gem in the heart of the Overberg.

With its 150 hectare vivid panoramic views of wetland, beautiful landscapes, lagoon and mountain views, and the most extraordinary bird life sanctuary, this is a majestic and breathtaking collaboration of beauty and nature — the premier venue for weddings, celebrations and events.


Premier venue with 17 antique chandeliers in reception areas;  all opulent decor, furniture and mirrors; corkage free service; Kleine River access by boat (Stanford to Grotto Beach, Hermanus); ample magical garden ceremony areas under age old oak trees
