The guest farm is located on a beautiful working farm with the spectacular Overberg mountains as a backdrop. The gardens are very well kept and the... More

Our 6 yr old daughter thought she was in heaven, between jumping on the trampoline, watching the beautiful horses, playing with the dogs and swimming in the amazing pool we... More

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... More

Alex and Rob were the perfect hosts, seeing to our every request. Impeccably furnished with comfortable beds. The dairy unit was just perfect for a weekend away. Dinner and breakfasts were brilliant as the fish was cooked to perfection - my husband, being a fisherman, was very critical, but he enjoyed the fish immensely. We without a doubt give White...

Had a lovely stay. The two owners are lovely people and have very friendly dogs (including a pug baby). The food that Rob cooks is amazing and the breakfast is also great. Very beautiful landscape, nice room service, and the room comes with very nice lavender soap.

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
