Escape

Nestled between the gorgeous Stanford mountains, a mere two hours from Cape Town, Bluebell Farm Cottages are waiting for you to discover this hidden gem.

Get back in touch with nature by simply opening a door – a new adventure awaits.

Experience

the calmness of a farm

Wake up to the sounds of birds chirping and the smell of fynbos, brew a cup of comfort to dip our homemade rusks in, and just enjoy the unspoilt nature.

Take a walk through the farm and end the day off with a fire under the stars – braai or potjie or one of our ready-made meals – whatever you choose, we have it ready for you.

Come and enjoy a simpler life, like we did when growing up.

It was a fantastic breakaway weekend. The farm is quiet and so peaceful. It is close to many small towns and we had a really good time just relaxing.

What a lovely weekend spent at a historic house, filled with interesting books and items from the past. The kitchen was well equipped and bedrooms spacious and clean. Nice stoep to chill on and watch the sunset.
