Family Accommodation in Stanford

Similar to many Overberg towns, Stanford first started as a farm and then evolved over time into the tree-lined streets that visitors and locals love today. Filled with historical buildings, country markets, an annual Welsh Pony Show and many surrounding farms with outdoor adventures, it’s the perfect destination for a wholesome family holiday. Even more so with the wide range of child friendly accommodation available, from hotels to guest houses to holiday apartments – you’ll be spoilt for choice! 

Stanford is a short 1.5 hour drive from Cape Town and offers asylum from the frenetic city pace. Located on the beautiful Klein River, this sleepy village is surrounded by majestic mountain views and countryside charm. This relaxed, laid back rural atmosphere is perfectly complemented by bustling markets with farm-fresh produce and an array of restaurants that welcome families of all sizes. 

One of the great aspects of Stanford is that you’ll be able to find accommodations and entertainment suitable for families with babies, toddlers and even teenagers. Most hotels, guest houses, B&Bs and self-catering options will include facilities such as Wi-Fi and DSTV, swimming pools and even exciting activities such as quad biking. A great option for anyone with young children is accommodation on one of the many guest farms or vineyards surrounding Stanford. These usually have an array of bird and wildlife that the kids will love interacting with, especially if you find yourself around during feeding time. 

For the more adventurous family activities there is always bird watching along the banks of the Klein River, horse riding, boat cruises and within a short drive to the coast you can even try Great white shark cage diving. In Stanford itself you can rent canoes and explore the river and lagoon which is also a great opportunity for the whole family to enjoy swimming and kayaking.

If you find yourself visiting Stanford in the rainier months during winter, this is still guaranteed to offer an amazing family-friendly holiday. This particular Overberg village is really big on arts and crafts which are reflected by the many galleries and craft stores. When inside weather strikes there are plenty of bits and bobs you can get the kids involved in. From painting or working with clay to using recycled handmade paper to make little crafts, you can create a wonderful inside play experience while you enjoy local wine and cuisine at the fireplace. At the end of the day, Stanford is a magical and exciting destination for the whole family.
