Come and experience the ambience of a Western Cape farm in the mountains. Stanford Valley Guest Farm is nestled in the valley of the Klein Rivier, 10km outside of Stanford village. We offer comfortable accommodation in 6 self-catering cottages and 10 large en-suite rooms. Enjoy our safe and peaceful haven, have an exhilarating swim in our large dam or go hiking. Don't be surprised if you startle a duiker or ribbok on the way! On our 440ha farm we grow organic rose geranium and lavender for essential oils.

The prestigious future thinking and sustainability festival “freewheeling” was conceived at Stanford Valley and is held here annually in late summer. For three days some of South Africa's leading thinkers, economists, scientists, artists, and environmentalists convene here to share and dialogue their latest ideas with hundreds of festival guests.

All ten en-suite double/twin rooms have a superb view, a private veranda and a secluded garden, some have also outside showers. The older cottages, like the 150-year-old ‘Stables Cottage’, have reed and beam ceilings, modern en-suite bathrooms and kitchenettes. The new rooms have been built in a similar charming old style with all the modern conveniences.

Old meets new in our 100-year-old barn, which has been artfully converted into a state-of-the-art Conference Centre. This venue comfortably accommodates up to 30 delegates in a U-shape, up to 100 delegates in cinema style and is equipped with data projector, TV, VCR and flip charts. Breakaway rooms are also available. Wireless internet connection is provided. Conference costs will vary according to catering, equipment and accommodation needs. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

The charming, historic village of Stanford is 7min down the road. Endless beaches near Hermanus and De Kelders are close by. Activities in the Area include: whale watching and shark cage diving, sunset cruises on the Klein River, horse riding, trout fishing, mountain biking, quad biking, and winery or brewery tours.
