In and around Stanford there are fynbos hikes, horse rides, cycling routes, superb golf courses and good bird watching.

The clean and beautiful river runs in front of the house and is perfect for swimming, kayaking and fishing. boat trips can be taken down the river at sunset.

The safe surfing beaches and wonderful whale watching in Hermanus are fifteen minutes drive away as is the world famous shark diving in gansbaai.
