Country guest house with conference centre suitable for conferences or small, intimate functions. Set in exquisite Victorian garden, close to the Klein River.
The quaint Victorian village of Stanford, nestled on the banks of the Klein River, is one of the unspoiled gems of the Overberg. There is always something different to be found around every corner: whether you explore the village on foot or bicycle, or whether you enjoy a trip down the river where over 120 bird species await your discovery. The magnificent mountainous surround is conducive to the creativity of many of the craftspeople in and around Stanford.
To add value to the relaxing “Stanford experience” we offer mountain, riverine and waterfall hiking in the surrounding area as well as horse riding, cycling, canoeing.
The Walker Bay area is renowned for its unique whale watching sites. The Hermanus Whale Festival in particular attracts visitors from all over the world who relish the experience of seeing these majestic creatures up close. The craggy coastal cliffs of De Kelders also provide a prime vantage point for viewing whales while enjoying a leisurely picnic lunch packed for you by the Galashiels staff. With both destinations within a short ten minute drive, yet far enough away from the madding crowd, Stanford is the ideal place to stay.
