The Little Farmhouse is situated in a leafy, wind-free glade which takes you back in time. The cottage is tranquil and comfortable with only the birds and sheep in the distance, while having easy access to shops and restaurants. The forest bath and shower is a romantic way of stargazing with a glass of bubbly. This is comfortable farm living with only the tame animals for company. You can spend your days lazing on the large patio with a book or choose to partake in a number of activities in and around Stanford. Horse riding, paddling on the river, birdwatching, hiking, eating at the country restaurants are a few examples.The unique little village of Stanford, overlooked by the moody slopes of the Klein River Mountains, lies just inland of False Bay, forming the tip of a triangle with the coastal towns of Hermanus and De Kelders. Peaceful and largely unaffected by change, Stanford is an eclectic mix of shops, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops, and the list of activities for a largely rural village exceeds ones expectations.When in Stanford, go to the Birkenhead Brewery, a boutique brewery open for beer tasting and lunches and the Stanford Walking Trail, which wends its way along the banks of the Klein River through the town and offers visitors some wonderful glimpses of the many birds in the area, including the endangered Blue Crane.
