The historic Weltevrede Farm is home to Stanford Hills Cottages, a mere stones throw from the quaint village of Stanford.

Rejuvenate your spirit in this tranquil retreat, surrounded by fields of fynbos, vineyards and olive groves. Let the star-filled heavens dazzle your city senses, and be intoxicated by the fresh farm air.

The Tasting Room Restaurant, open 7 days a week (08h30 to 17h00) is situated in a unique, quaintly restored labourer`s cottage. Choose from a chalkboard menu or create your own picnic basket and relax and enjoy the views over the dam, while sampling a bottle or two of our award-winning range of wines.

The vineyards overlook the restored original labourer`s cottages, which offer cosy self-catering accommodation. A glass of wine by the fireside during winter, and gentle breezes in summer will ensure a relaxing and memorable stay.

Guests are welcome to explore the farm and enjoy the natural flora and fauna of the area. Whether planning a romantic getaway or a fun filled family weekend, Stanford Hills has it all.

Activities:

Stanford is almost two hours drive from Cape Town and has retained most of its old world charm with its period houses and wide streets. Many restaurants are found in the village and art galleries, antiques and crafts shops line the main street of Stanford.

Reputable wine estates, as well as a micro-brewery and cheese farm, are within easy driving distance.

Stanford is the ideal base for exploring the many attractions of this region. From July to December, whales frolic in Walker Bay and can be seen from Hermanus and De Kelders. Gansbaai offers white shark cage diving for the adventurous.

Stanford is also near beautiful nature reserves and is the Overbergs bird-watching capital.

Two hiking trails (2 km and 5 km)available free of charge to guests which meander through the vineyards and Protea plantations. Swimming in the two dams is quite safe or try some fishing in top dam (catch and return).
