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...

I found this gem while looking through Tripadvisor reviews. My wife and I decided on a last minute weekend away and luckily we got the last room, or should I say suite at this wonderful guest farm. We had a large suite which was very well appointed, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was lovely and its location, in the...

It was a pleasure to have you all here over Christmas, we're so happy you all had a good time and we lived up to expectations. You were very wise in staying more than just 2-3 nights so you could really relax, enjoy the farm and all that Stanford has to offer. Hope to see you again sometime.

What a gem! The owners are lovely and very welcoming. The farm is absolutely beautiful and the room was also stunning. The unit we stayed in had a lounge, kitchen and bedroom and was just below the pool (which was also stunning). There are lovely walks to the damn and so many wine farms to explore. We absolutely loved White...

I took my partner to White Water Farm to celebrate his 40th Birthday and to get a much needed break away from our daily lives. I could not have chosen a more perfect place.

White Water Farm is in a beautiful setting just north of the charming village of Stanford. Turning off the highway, the farm's white post and rail fences welcome visitors and set the tone for the style of the accommodation. There are several elegantly decorated guesthouses spread out across the farm, providing privacy and peace. Dogs and horses abound and the...

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.
