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 or hop into the wood-fired hot tub with a glass of wine.

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.

We are so excited about our latest addition to delight our guests staying at The Little Farmhouse! We now have an eco-friendly Wood-Fired Hot Tub! THE ULTIMATE LUXURY OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE

Just in time for those cooler autumn/winter evenings to spend time outside in the hot tub, glass of local red wine, doing some stargazing and with the added charm of a burning woodfire, you’ll be sure to relax and unwind.

For those who can pinch off some time for a mid-week break away, we have a *mid-week special at only R1500 for the whole cottage with all its amenities, including a cute, loveable donkey or two.

Whether you bring the whole family, a group of besties or just in need of a romantic escape, The Little Farmhouse will not disappoint.

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.

What a beautiful cottage/house, well laid out with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an upstairs loft space. Perfect for a family or even friends sharing.
Wonderful lounge and living area with fireplace. The area at the bottom of the garden is so gorgeous especially in the evening with the braai and fairy lights. A restful place. Close to town with all its quaintness and restaurants. Very clean and very resourced - everything you would need. Beautiful touches like hot water bottles.
Highly recommended.

The Little Farmhouse was the most magical weekend away. It was exactly what our family needed. The farmhouse is nestled in the valley, surrounded my beautiful trees and the winter rains had created a beautiful little stream that wound around the property and created endless entertainment for our boys. Visits from Penelope and Onkie were highly anticipated. Thank you Kevin and Natalie for a wonderful getaway.

Ons het 'n sprokiesagtige naweek gehad. Die liggies in die bome en die nuwe "hot tub" het bygedra tot die atmosfeer. Die plaasdiere wat kom groet het in die oggende was 'n vriendelike verwelkoming. Ek sal definitief hierdie plek aanbeveel vir gesinne.

We had a fairytale-like weekend. The lights in the trees and the new "hot tub" added to the atmosphere. The farm animals that came to greet in the mornings were a friendly welcome. I would definitely recommend this place for families.

We visited The Little Farmhouse for my 40th birthday and it was such a treat! My kids absolutely loved it, especially our visits from the donkeys in the mornings. The setting was lovely and private and the hot tub was perfect for the chilly weather. This is definitely going into my list of favourite getaways.
