Budget Getaways Review

Gracing the gentle slopes of the Overberg hills and off a farm road 25km from Stanford, Goedvertrou Guest Farm is the quintessential rustic country escape.

The farm itself is a working dairy farm (fresh farm milk and rusks await you on arrival), circled by mountains, oodles of space and a network of hiking trails. There’s even a 4x4 route which leads up the mountain to a sundowner spot (read: stiff G&Ts), and a forest trail to a waterfall...

Complementing the nature-based activities on offer is a old-time Cape Dutch cottage - voorstoep, sweet-smelling thatch and gentle farm views included.

The cottage packs a total of eight guests, but six would have a more comfortable time of it. 

The layout here consists of three bedrooms. On ground level you'll find a King room (with additional twin beds) and a double room. The double is ensuite, while the king has a shared bathroom. Into the loft, there's King bed, and basin and loo in the room (hmmm..), while a double sleeper couch can be found in the library room.

All rooms are equipped with linen and towels.

The living area (with TV) is furnished in a simple farm style, and opens onto a pretty patio overlooking a lawned garden with soft farm views. There's a dining area and equipped kitchen with everything you need for self-catering.

Visits to the farm dairy and the possibility of helping with the calves will be a kids delight - as will be the jungle gym and play area.

Franskraal beach is a 17 kay drive away, meaning you could head off for a coastal cool-off in summer; alternatively, stay put and take a dip in the farm dam. Stanford and its attractions are 25km up the road. 

Wrapping up, simple and traditonal farm experience with plenty to do and within easy reach of the coast and Stanford village.
