The Little Farmhouse


Sleeps 6 people

The ‘Little Farmhouse’ on a farm in Stanford is a quaint hidden gem, oozing country character. Explore the forest and drink in the magnificent sunsets before the night sky shows off its sparkling beauty between the tree tops. Bring the whole family and enjoy meals under the stars, made outside on the braai. Relax in a hot forest bath under a thicket of trees and unwind.

Thick walls, dark beams, large indoor fireplace with modern conveniences in the kitchen such as a microwave, stove and small electrical appliances. The friendly donkeys, Onkie and Penelope, munch away in the garden to the children`s delight.

  • Bedding included
  • Towels included
  • Dam
  • Braai

So many things to do if you don’t feel like whiling the time away in a hammock with your book. You can swim in the dam go for walks or a cycle, relax and have a hot bubble bath in the forest.

Forget the Ipads, phones and laptops at home - this farm cottage begs every visitor to be fully present in body, mind and spirit. An idyllically peaceful farm stay and a wonderful opportunity to escape from big-busy-city-living and to reconnect with each other. In the words of our 13-year old... "Schedule for the day
- Have some delicious bacon and egg rolls (cooked in the skottle on the stoep
- Say hi to our donkey friends (they come to visit, asking to be fed carrots and cucumbers
- Then go for a walk in the forest and race our stick-boats in the stream
❤️ could it get any better?!"

We had a great short- breakaway with the kids at The Little Farmhouse. We felt away from it all and had great family time. The house was comfortable and well equipped for self catering.Great fireplace, friendly donkeys strolling by in the evening.. It felt private and characterful in a forest like setting and only a few minutes from Stanford. Highly recommended.

We were 6 friends and one child seeking a getaway for the long weekend. The little farmhouse was exactly this. It is a little gem, nestled away in the woods, it feels like you are away from civilisation, but close enough to Stanford for great restaurants, etc. There is very little cellphone signal, which makes the break so much more relaxing. The braai under the trees was amazing and the donkeys were a highlight. We were there on a very cold weekend, but they provide us with enough fire wood and more than enough bedding, so it was all good. The house is clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this place and we will surely return.
