Lovely rooms, very lovely decorated (with...

Me and my friends loved staying at White water Farm and we sure want to return to just be there to relax and have delicious meals and be in the nature or swim in the pool. A must go. And the owners have very good taste.

I cannot recommend White Water farm enough. It is beautifully situated against a gentle mountain slope, with lovely views across paddocks filled with elegant horses. The rooms and restaurant are decorated in a crisp, modern, yet very comfortable style. We had dinner at the restaurant for one of our nights there, and it is most definitely at the same great...

It was lovely to come back to this beautiful place. Congenial hosts, Rob and Alex make you feel so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble, the food at every meal was just delicious with lots of fresh garden produce. A superb flight was arranged with Africa Wings which flew us over the farm and the out over the bay to...

What an incredible place, we could only stay one night which we were gutted about. We arrived early, before check in but this wasn't a problem, our room was ready so they let us check straight in at no extra cost. We spent the day chilling by the pool and then I had an afternoon horse ride which was lovely,...

You never know what to expect when you book something without having spoken to a real live person about it. Well I did speak to a real live person - one of the owners of this delightful farm - and he assured me that it was just what we were looking for. After embarking on the l-o-n-g roadtrip from Joburg...

A former stud farm that has been sensitively updated with a great deal of class and style. There is an understated attention to detail that touches every element of this beautiful guest house; from the interiors, the garden design to the cuisine and service. A really impeccable experience. The location is remote and spiritual on the valley side with grey-cliffed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Escape to historic White Water Farm. We offer guests a welcoming rural haven with magnificent mountain scenery in the Kleinriver valley near Stanford, South Africa. The accommodation, wedding and conference facilities have all been recently renovated to a high standard of comfort and hospitality with the warm and personal touch of the owners. The ambience of the farm is relaxed, comfortable and eclectically elegant. This picture-perfect and historical venue is the ideal place to escape - whether it is for some much needed R & R, an adventure, a business conference, a wedding or a private retreat. The owners live permanently on the farm, raise their own cattle and are planting herbs and vegetables for the restaurant. All other provisions will be sourced locally and we will be proud to offer a menu of delicious dishes cooked by our chef. We look forward to welcoming you to White Water Farm and providing you with tranquil Stanford accommodation set in spectacular countryside. Activities include hiking, bird watching, horse riding, swimming (either in our pool or in our dam). White Water Farm has it's own "chapel" which was converted from the old distillery barn, where Witblits (a local liquor like Grappa) used to be made, hence the historic farm's name - Witwater or White Water. Adjacent is the restaurant with a lovely shaded garden situated under a grove of oak trees and blue gums, making it an ideal venue for weddings and conferences. Accommodation: Barn Suites: There are 2 suites in what was once the Herb Barn. These are very spacious and boast a living room complete with fireplace and mini kitchenette, bedroom with king size bed and large bathroom which has shower, bath and twin basins. Dairy Suites: The Farm's Dairy has been converted into 3 suites, all of which have double bedrooms, private living areas, mini kitchenettes, bathrooms with showers and an uninterrupted view of the mountains. The Manager's Cottage comprises of two bedrooms each with en-suite bathroom, one has a bath with shower and the other a walk in shower. It also has a lounge and dining room with french doors opening onto a private patio and stoep with mountain views. There is a full open plan kitchen allowing for self catering if desired. The Gatehouse Cottage: An elegant private cottage with large bedroom, en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, twin basins, victorian bath in the bedroom, lounge with fireplace and small kitchenette. There are gorgeous views from every window in this cottage as well as its own stoep. The owners live in the main farmhouse and our 2 Farmhouse Rooms are located here. These private rooms are located in the oldest part of the house which dates back to 1846 and both have ensuite bathrooms with showers. RATES: 2x Barn suites - R1250 per suite per night (sleeps 2) 3x Dairy suites - R1000 per suite per night (sleeps 2) Manager's Cottage - R2000 per night (sleeps 4) Gatehouse Cottage - R1500 per night (sleeps 2) Farmhouse Rooms - R850 per night (sleeps 2) ... more   less
