The Blue House is a true gem in the heart of Stanford! Spacious, beautifully decorated and filled with old world charm. Natalie is a gracious and warm host! The bonus for us was being able to bring our dogs! With a large, well secured garden it gave us peace of mind that they could wander outside and enjoy sniffling about. Highly recommended to put The Blue House on your wishlist!

This beautiful cottage has the perfect location in the middle of the village. It takes no time to get anywhere! The rooms were comfortable and clean. The living areas work well for a group and we loved all eating around the enormous kitchen table. We were 2 families with small children and the accommodation worked well for us

Central, warm, spacious and generally great. We snuck out to Stanford for one of the rainiest weekends in history. But the cottage had a great fireplace to chill around and a spacious open kitchen where we hung out. WiFi was rock solid so we're able to double up the lounge as a Disney cinema for the kids while we played boardgames. Special thanks for Kevin for dropping off some wine, jam and another huge bag if wood half way through our stay. Can't recommend the blue cottage and Natalie and Kevin enough.

Wonderlike asemhaal- en rustigword-plek. Stanford is definitief die plek om die tyd 'n bietjie stadiger te laat draai weg van die gejaag van die stad. Die akkommodasie was baie gerieflik en ek kan dit definitief aanbeveel vir gesinne met kinders of net 'n wegbreek wat benodig word..

We had a lovely stay at The Blue House. We were a party of 8 - 6 adults, 2 kids plus 3 dogs and we all had a great time despite the weather. We were worried not being able to entertain kids and dogs enough during the rainy weekend , yet the house and garden offered ample space for humans and furbabies. We had a good time there and can definitely recommend a stay.

Had the most amazing stay at The Blue House for a few days. Was able to work online perfectly during the day, while evenings were spent relaxing on the patio. The house is centrally located just off the market square and has all the necessary amenities for a comfortable, cosy stay. The lawn boules and indoor fireplace are definite winners!
