It looks old, but B’s cottage was built in the 1990s exactly in accordance with a plan of an original Cape fisherman’s cottage. Even architects have been fooled, as the windows and doors had to be made by hand to keep with the original style. B’s Cottage is undoubtedly Stanford’s favourite get-away. It is set in a picturesque English garden with lovely views to the Klein River Mountains across the village green. It shares the 1 400m2 garden with its larger sister, Dove Cottage, but they are each screened to provide maximum privacy. It has a large fireplace (a favourite with the umpteen repeat guests who sometimes don’t even venture outdoors in winter!), an outside braai, a fully equipped kitchen (except for an oven) and a shower/bathroom. The double bed in the loft completes the scene. This is a pet-friendly establishment, and there is an enclosed and partially covered ‘doggie’ area that leads from the kitchen. The entire property is fenced, and off-street parking is provided. RATES: Please click on the red Book Now button above for a live availability calendar and rates.

Bugler’s cottage is one of the original labourer’s cottages on Sir Robert’s Stanford’s farm, and dates back to the early 1860s. It is the only cottage in Stanford that is still true to its original form, except for internal changes and the addition of a bathroom at the back. It was lovingly restored in 2012 and made structurally sound after internal support structures were removed as people grew taller over the years and would bump their heads against the low beams! Some of the “boer-maak-‘n-plan” methods have been retained for posterity, such as the barbed wire and “hanebalke” to try and keep the roof together. This one-bedroom cottage oozes charm whilst taking you back in history. It can accommodate a family of 3, as there is a daybed (and a Queen Anne stove!) in the lounge area. The bathroom consists of a shower and bath. There is a large patio/ braai area and a still to be fixed jacuzzi in the garden. The property is enclosed with secured off-street parking and is pet-friendly. R200 surcharge for midweek single night stay Mid-week special rates apply. ONLY 2-day bookings over weekends, and 3-day bookings over long weekends. Min 5 night stay from 20 December – 3 January
