A friendly quaint small town - Stanford welcomes you in every sense. The people are friendly and town is a treat to spend time in. Most places are within walking distance.

A quint little town with a lot to offer - If you need peace and quietness, this is for you. It has a charm you can get used to and do not want to leave. Maybe come back to buy yourself a retirement home.

A piece of olde worlde - This is a lovely town with a great history. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area. If you just want to have a peaceful time this is also a great place to do it. Goose cottage is a lovely calm cottage in a peaceful garden - great for the soul.

Stanford a place to visit - Stanford is like a secret. The more you go there the more you discover. Peaceful and friendly, fresh food markets, fabulous restaurants. Marianna's (make sure you book) madras kitchen and a few others. Birds and the river are a real treat. Swim, canoe or go on the African queen. It also seems to be a sought after wedding destination.

Beautiful and tranquil - I didn't go into the town very often. But its beautiful, the people are friendly and helpful. The properties seemed well looked after, the town is clean, its close enough to Hermanus, and it may very well just be the place to retire.

Rustig - Rustig , Mooi en vriendelike gemeenskap

Visiting Standford - This beautiful part of the country is quiet and peaceful. However, found the lack of a nice supermarket a problem, as the Spar there is really not up to standard. Not much to do in the town and the one restaurant we went to was just average.

Beautiful Stanford - Little town with life and nice restaurants and shops. People very friendly. Quiet and worth to stay.

I love Stanford - There is something about this place. The air you breath seems sweeter. Even if it's your first time there, it feels like you've arrived home. A river runs through it. It's a special place. You have to experience it for yourself!

Quaint, old world and loads of fun! - Enjoy a holiday in the country. Immerse yourself in a bygone era where Victorian buildings line tiny streets. Enjoy the local bistro and coffee shop. It is small and you feel far away from the rest of the world, yet you are less than 30 mins from the coastal town of Hermanus. A micro-brewery, picnic spot with touch farm and another restaurant are literally 5 minutes down the road.

Stanford - n Ongelooflike ondervinding waar mens jou siel weer vind met 'n vinnige wegbreek uit die stads omgewing. My soul has been revived. 'n Mens kom vinnig agter hoe besig jou lewe is en vergeet skoon dat rustigheid vir jou siel uiters belangrik is. Amazing views! Caring and friendly staff. Die wonderlike span by die Locke Stone Villa sal jou vinnig herhinner I feel refreshed...

Natures gift - This is probably the best local destination we have visited…ever! The owners of the cottage we were staying in were caring and very friendly. The cottage was absolutely magnificent. The family dog even came to say hi. This is truly a place to get in touch with nature and to just relax. The antique shops in town were truly an experience to remember. Will definitely return

Loads of character - Lovely town where you are taken back to a time when things were simpler, you had more time and people were friendly and relaxed. Loads to do in and around the town.

Peaceful haven - What a beautiful untouched destination. Enjoyed lovely coffees and meals, wondered through antique shops, explored the wonders of the river. A peaceful haven where you really feel you can get away from it all!!

A glorious weekend in Stanford - We wanted somewhere quiet, relaxing and beautiful to spend our 34th wedding anniversary. I found Goose Cottage on Safarinow.com and made a booking. We just loved Stanford. We went for beautiful walks to the river and through the suburbs and town centre. We enjoyed the locals' home made fare which we purchased at the Saturday market and had snack lunches at a very quaint restaurant run my two very friendly ladies. We enjoyed great weather, our accommodation was more than what we hoped for and we had beautiful views of the mountains from the stoep of the cottage. An added blessing was the lovely expansive garden in front of the cottage which just put the cherry on top for us. We will return to Stanford and possibly back to our accommodation there because it was a weekend we hold dear to our hearts. Oh, and I almost forgot, we paid a visit to the cheese factory which provided an amazing variety of activities for families with a picnic area, jungle gyms, a play pen for visitors' dogs and, of course, the cheeses were delicious.

Quiet Escape - Stanford was such a lovely and quiet village. I could easily have spent a few more nights enjoying the sights and relaxing by the river. It's like stepping back in history when you walk through the village. What a welcome return to a simpler way of life on my long weekend!

Stanford - Stanford....a beautiful village on the Klein River. Surrounded by mountains and a short drive to the Whales in Hermanus or Die Kelders....Stanford is a place to live or just recapture your breath....great coffee, food, cheese and wines. Stanford is my place.

Stanford - a Village to make your soul sing. - The peaceful village of Stanford, tucked into a quiet bend on the Klein River, lies conveniently close to the whale capital, Hermanus and the shark capital, Gansbaai. Stanford has a unique character all of its own, untouched by the bustle of the nearby towns. A slow and gentle pace welcomes the visitor to the dusty roads, the Village Green, the antique shops, the country markets, pubs, wineries, the microbrewery and the restaurants. Stanford's a place to catch up with yourself and those you love; to read or chat or dream at the fireside or while walking along the wandelpad. It's a place to paddle in solitude alongside otters and moorhens. It's a place to watch the colours of the mountains change as the sun goes down over the vines. Stanford's a place to make your soul sing.

Stanford village - We loved Stanford for its tranquility and beauty surrounded by the Overberg mountains. Its an expensive little place and its townfolk are generally unfriendly. We found one place, Serendipity, an eatery in the town where we were made to feel welcome and would love to return there again. Accommondation is abundant in the village and the walks are wonderful.

Sweet little spot - Sweet little town, enjoyed cheese farm and beaches. Not a metropolis but then you dont go there for that.

A great place to escape to - Stanford is a charming village, but don't rely on the local ATM to supply you with cash - fortunately the locals are used to this problem and will go out of their way to accommodate you.

A together little town - A great little town with beautiful character and historical buildings. Lovely architecture. The antique shops creates that extra authenticity in the town. Nightlife not recommended as this will ruin what Stanford stands for - history.
