"We spent 3 nights at the Blue Gum Country Estate on our tour around the Cape Town area. We absolutely loved staying here. It was a fab way to end our holiday. Anton and his staff were wonderful. They couldn’t have done more for us. The breakfasts here were incredible. We would definitely recommend staying here to others…"

For the adventurous – horse riding, boat cruises, hikes, bird watching and Great White Shark Cage diving are all within a 20km radius of the village. There is so much to choose from during the holiday season, make sure you don’t miss our renowned Stanford Street Festival in December.  Whether you want to shop, see, sip or sleep, #VisitStanford."
