About Stanford Country Cottages
Rural and river retreats in tranquil surroundings, Stanford Country Cottages are self-catering establishments situated throughout the Victorian village of Stanford, and on farms nearby. Perfect getaways from stressed city living, they offer a unique base from which to explore this magical village and fascinating surrounding area of the Cape Overberg and Whale Coast. Stanford nestles in the quiet space between the Kleinriviersberg Mountains and the meandering Klein River.
Art galleries and antique shops invite the casual browser, and mouthwatering fare in cafes, pubs, restaurants and the local cheese farm entice the senses. The mountain fynbos, the river and the coastline attract a fascinating diversity of birdlife. Hikers and mountain bikers can choose the coastal or mountain routes, or merely amble along the village wandelpad. Paddlers can escape to the solitude and silence of the river Stanford is the ideal base for exploring the many attractions of this region. From July to December, whales languish in Walker Bay and can be seen up close from the cliff paths in Hermanus and De Kelders. A short drive further along to Gansbaai takes one to the white shark capital of the world, where cage diving is offered for the adventurous.

Had a wonderful two nights in Stanford, staying at Bed Lemon. Ansie was marvellous! Our grateful thanks to all for allowing us to take our dogs along, they loved Stanford as much as we did.
Nice house in the middle of beautiful Stanford. Clean, well kept with all nescessary facilities.
We had a fantastic stay, the garden and pool and cottage have a welcome and homely feel. It is well equipped and tastefully decorated.My only criticism is that it would have been nice to have fans in the rooms as it gets a little hot at nice but is cool in the day. We would definitely go again.
We had a lovely weekend at Journeys End. There is a nice big indoor braai for those chilly nights. Ansie was very helpful, and the people in the town very friendly.
