Travellers' Choice
Blue Gum Country Estate is hidden in the valley that ascends towards the small town of Stanford, just outside Hermanus. The estate is a working wine farm and developing vineyard. This magnificent 130 acre piece of paradise is perfect for those seeking an alternative route and destination to the garden route or a relaxing break from the city. The delightful estate, nestled among ancient Blue Gum trees, overlooks the leafy banks of the Klein Rivier and encourages guests to relax in tranquil beauty and endless luxury.

A friend recommended the restaurant at Blue Gum Estate to us. A group of 8 of us arrived with no reservations but the staff happily accommodated us. The outdoor patio seating is perfect with a huge playground for our kids. The food was delicious. If you are in the area go for a meal. We checked out the facilities while we were there and when we are next in the area their lodging is top on our list.

We spent a weekend with three other families and booked the Mountain view cottages. The manager (Roetter) made an additional room available free of charge for the older children to stay together which was very thoughtful. The dinners were delicious and the kids were spoilt. The service staff are very friendly and efficient. The venue has great walking and mountain bike trails and the manager will provide detailed route planning depending on your preference. There is a tennis court which kept us busy for most of the day. There's a reason we have now been five years in a row as a group.

My boyfriend recently treated me to a night away at the Blue Gum Country Estate for my birthday. The place is absolutely beautiful with the vineyard and mountain views. There is a tennis court and pool on the property so plenty to do. Really loved the cows on the estate too! We were really lucky to be the only ones staying that night and had the whole place to ourselves. What made our stay really special was the exceptional customer service from the super friendly staff. They set up our own mini buffet breakfast (as we were the only two), and even spoilt me with a bunch of protea flowers and a bottle of their wine for my birthday. Big thank you to Roëtter and Margaret for our lovely weekend. Nothing was too big an ask for these guys.
