Stanford Hills Accommodation

Unwine’d In Nature

Stanford Hills Estate stretches lazily across the slopes of the picturesque Klein River Mountain Range and offers nature lovers a choice between a large, sprawling, self-catering Manor House and two petite, self-catering cottages. The Homestead (Manor House) sleeps 11, while Brunia and Sylvia Cottage each sleep four guests. Visitors can enjoy a laid-back experience on the lawns overlooking the farm’s large dam where lazy days can be spent swimming and canoeing. The more energetic can explore the many farm trails that criss-cross the Stanford valley, on foot, bike, or by horseback. For those days when the family chef needs a break from kitchen duties, there is The Tasting Room Restaurant that is conveniently located on the Estate. Here, guests can enjoy hearty breakfasts, wholesome lunches and wine tasting throughout the week. Children and pets are welcome and Estate accommodation is wheelchair friendly.

The Homestead (Manor House)

The Homestead (Manor House)

The original old farmhouse has stood the test of time and is steeped in a rich history that spans over 160 years. Believed to have been built by the founder of Stanford, Philippus de Bruyn, shortly after he obtained the farm in 1855, it went on to become a school for girls in the 1890’s. Over the years Stanford Hills Estate changed hands numerous times until it was purchased by Jami and Peter Kastner in 2005.

This sprawling, five-bedroom manor house sleeps 11 people and has a wonderful outside entertainment area with a large private swimming pool, a boules / petanque court and braai facilities.

The heart of the house consists of a kitchen, dining area, lounge and library.

The large kitchen has its own scullery and is fully equipped with enough fridge and freezer space to stock all your supplies for an extended stay. There is a gas stove, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.

The dining area has a large wooden table that is just begging for celebration dinners.

The large lounge is comfortably furnished and has an authentic manor house feel with its oversized leather couches and indoor fireplace. There are French doors that lead to a patio that divides the two main living areas of the main house.

A well-stocked bookcase laden with books awaits guests who enjoy reading.

Reviews

“I recently treated my family to stay over at Brunia Cottage at Stanford Hills Estate. Upon arrival, we were taken aback by the beauty of the place and its magnificent setting amongst the vineyards and the protea plantation. We had a delicious meal at the Tasting Room and sampled the wine which was magnificent. After our lunch, we set out on a 5km nature walk which was truly spectacular. I must say I come from KZN, but I have never experienced such beauty as at Stanford Hills.” Sunnybrae Tripadvisor

“We invited some special friends to join us in the grand old Manor House at Stanford Hills and found it a perfect home-from-home. The crisp white sheets, superb mattress in the main bedroom, elegant wine glasses and loads of space for the kids, suited us perfectly.” Phillippa M Tripadvisor

“We stayed in the beautifully decorated Sylvia and Brunia Cottages which were well equipped with comfortable beds. Stanford Hills Accommodation is dog-friendly and the staff welcoming. Lovely weekend getaway cottages with lots to do in-and-around Stanford. We attended a wedding at the venue, the food that came out of the kitchen of the Tasting Room was excellent.” Edwina Tripadvisor
