A stunning setting, but the accommodation needs updating as the decor is a little tired, the plumbing is very noisy and the kitchen is a little small for larger groups. Patricia, who helps with the cleaning, is amazing and really helpful - her being there...More

About the neighbourhood
Stanford, which dates back to 1729, is a victorian GEM and one of the best architecturally preserved villages in the Overberg.

Stanford was named after Robert Stanford from Ballina in Ireland, who became a tragic victim of anti-convict agitation protesting against the British Government's decision to settle convicts in the cape. It is situated on the banks of the Klein River only 10 minutes outside Hermanus and 1.5 hours from Cape Town. Sample award winning Gruyere Cheese at the nearby Klein River dairy farm or just stroll around the village and enjoy the interesting local restaurants and pubs.

Some excellent wines are being produced in the area - the estates of Raka, Weltevrede and Sir Robert Stanford are worth a visit to sample their products.

How to get there
Airport: Cape Town International: 130.0 km
Travelling from the airport or Cape Town, the drive to Fairhill is roughly 2 hours drive over the scenic Sir Lowries pass. Hermanus (famous for its whale watching) is the major town on the route. Just outside Hermanus the drive meanders along the base of the famous Overberg mountains on the left and the Hermanus lagoon on the right. Crossing over the Klein River bridge, you pass by the charming town of Stanford, and Fairhill is situated just 7 km out of Stanford on the R43 coastal road to Gansbaai. The entrance is on the right, marked by a flag and stone wall with electronic gate.
