Ladies Special Getaway at the Little Farmhouse "Retreat"
For the months of October and November 2020, treat yourself and 3 of your besties to this mid-week getaway in the Stanford Country side.
Ladies Mid-Week Break
Our ladies’ mid-week getaway specials we ran in October and November 2020 went down an absolute treat. We offered a fun break to the country side for four besties with activities like massages, yoga, hikes, chilling by the dam, soaking in the outdoor pool in the forest…
We are planning a repeat of this successful offer in 2021. Watch this space!
We have three lovely self-catering options to suit your needs.
The Little Farmhouse nestles in a tranquil forest setting on our farm just a few km from Stanford Village. Lagoon View is one of several homes in a private estate overlooking the Hermanus Lagoon and The Blue House is one of Stanford`s original cottages overlooking the Market Square in the middle of the village.
