Escape to historic White Water Farm. We offer guests a welcoming rural haven with magnificent mountain scenery in the Kleinriver valley near Stanford, South Africa. We are 145km from Cape Town International Airport, just 1hr45m drive. The accommodation, wedding and conference facilities have all been recently renovated to a high standard of comfort and hospitality. The ambience of the farm is relaxed, comfortable and eclectically elegant. This picture-perfect and historical venue is the ideal place to escape – whether it is for a much needed rest, an adventure, a business conference, a wedding or a private retreat. The owners live permanently on the farm, raise their own cattle and are planting herbs and vegetables for the restaurant.
All other provisions will be sourced locally and we will be proud to offer a menu of delicious dishes cooked by our chef. White Water Farm has its own “chapel” which was converted from the old distillery barn, where Witblits (a local liquor like Grappa) used to be made, hence the historic farm’s name – Witwater or White Water. Adjacent is the restaurant with a lovely shaded garden situated under a grove of oak trees and blue gums, making it an ideal venue for weddings and conferences. We look forward to welcoming you to White Water Farm and providing you with tranquil Stanford accommodation set in spectacular countryside.
White Water Farm is able to accommodate up to 22 people in a variety of cottages, suites and rooms.
