Blue Gum Country Estate is situated on the Klein Rivier near Stanford, offers a unique Overberg experience for those in search of rustic sophistication in a magnificent country setting.

The 12 rooms at Blue Gum are all different, as you would expect in a private home. Some are more spacious, others more family-friendly, but they all have a warm domestic feeling with an emphasis on quality and comfort. We make no apologies about food being a main draw card, with two restaurants catering for families and informal get-togethers as well as a more formal and romantic alternative catering to adults only.

The Estate is situated amongst an olive grove, vineyards, rolling lawns and extensive gardens with swimming pool, tennis court, boule court, mountain bikes, extensive library and board games. You will find something to suit every interest and persuasion, both on or off the estate whether you are a foodie, walking enthusiast, history buff, adrenalin junkie.
