The space

There are two Barn Suites: These two suites are in what was once the Herb Barn. They are very spacious and boast a lounge complete with fireplace and mini kitchenette, bedroom with king size bed and large bathroom which has shower, bath and twin basins. Toal internal size, 62sqm.

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.

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 a much needed rest, an adventure, a business conference, a wedding or a private retreat.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire farm, with the exception of the owners suite in the main house. Feel free to walk around our 50 hectares of pastures, woods and dams at the base of the Akkedisberg mountains.

Interaction with guests

As we also live on the farm we interact as much as guests would like, from total privacy to joining us for dinner if you wish. Always happy though to provide local recommendations for restaurants and activities.

The neighbourhood

Stanford village is one of the prettiest in South Africa and is only a few kms away along the beautiful valley. Food and wine are among top attractions here with great country restaurants and wine estates. Hermanus is only 20 min drive to visit whales in season and Gansbaai for shark cage diving. Panthera Africa big cat sanctuary is very close, as is Raka wine farm, Klein Rivier Cheese Factory and Beloftobos wedding venue.

Getting around

You will need a car to get to us and explore locally once here.

I am a brit living in South Africa, former banker and now, with my partner, own and run a 50 hectare guest farm in the Western Cape, about 2 hours from Cape Town, near to Hermanus.
I like to escape to our house on the Costa del Sol in SA winter (Spain's summer) to relax and recoup.
