The estate is actually in Stanford and not in Hermanus. It takes about 30 minutes to reach it from hermanus. Lovely large modern rooms. Nice set menu dinner is served and excellent breakfast. The estate is nice

I just celebrated my wedding weekend last week in Stanford. Myself and much of my family stayed at Blue Gum for the weekend. I can't say enough good things about Anton, his team, and the estate.

We stayed for 3 nights in the main house in a beautifully appointed room with lovely views across the valley to the hills beyond. My wife and I were fortunate to be given the honeymoon suite with a terrace on which to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Each day we enjoyed the delicious and generous breakfasts outside at the dining area....
