Free-standing cottages are scattered throughout generous (green!) grounds. Perennial streams from the "kloofs" around the property ensure that the lawns and trees stay well watered all year round. The cottages are rustic and simple, but completely comfortable. There's a top-quality restaurant, The Manor House, on site - not to be missed.

We stayed here some years ago, it was pretty basic, no food, but the starlight was magnificent, so I really wanted to return. New owners have tidied up, repainted the cottages, and put in really nice linen and towels. They also now have a restuarant in the old farmhouse. This had all the atmosphere that one would expect in an...

The rooms are lovely, the breakfast very good and the Sunday lunch was the best we have encountered in the entire Overberg area. Very good selection of wines including Raka. The hospitality is more than 5 star. The area is very beautiful with well kept garden areas and green pastures overlooking the Kleinrivier Valley and Mountain

Rooms are lovely, and the hospitality was even better. The swimming dam is an easy 5 minute walk away, with a quaint jetty and pristine water. Stanford has many lovely breakfast and dinner spots, but our favourite dining experience was onsite at the Manor House. Sublime! So looking forward to the next visit :)

We were a group of 20 people that went for breakfast and finished with lunch/wine! The food was fantastic, so fresh (from their own herb and vegetable garden) and the attention to detail and the service are amazing. Huge lawn for kids to play. Will be back soon.

Friendly staff, beautiful setting and views. Would not recommend for a romantic weekend during high season though. Limited privacy in the Fynbos and Sagewood units. Had the unfortunate experience of being adjacent to families who were very loud, no regard for other guests and had undisciplined children. It was definitely not an oasis of calm. Beware that the self-catering accommodation...

I need not have brought my favorite pillow. Theirs was nicer! Quality linens and soaps and lotions graced our charming (and well equipped) vintage cottage with its wonky old whitewashed walls wider than the span of my hand. From our private patio we looked over the lavender bed and watered lawns to the drama of folded mountains that, from a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Idyllically situated 10 km from the historic town of Stanford, Stanford Valley Guest Farm provides a restful and picturesque base from which to tour both the Overstrand and Overberg regions of South Africa's Western Cape. Close to Caledon, Hermanus and Gansbaai, there is no shortage of "things to do," but we have plenty of space for hiking and swimming in our large dam right here on the farm. Our accommodation comprises of a total of 19 en suite rooms of which 7 are self-catering. Our restaurant, Manor House, opened its doors November 2015 and is already a firm favorite on the culinary scene! ... more   less
