About Fairhill Guest House & Nature Reserve

Fairhill Guest House & Nature Reserve is located in the small riverside village of Stanford, located just 20 minutes from Hermanus in the Overberg district in the Western Cape, South Africa. This private self-catering guesthouse is situated on an extensive 200-hectare coastal property, exclusively at your disposal for exploration and enjoyment. The guest house is very spacious, offering five en-suite bedrooms with the capacity to accommodate up to 10 people – making it a wonderful choice for families or groups of friends.

Fairhill Guest House offers a peaceful, scenic getaway experience, providing stunning views of rolling mountains, sweeping fynbos plains (indigenous vegetation), and the sea beyond. One of the unique aspects of this retreat is the amazing calmness in the area, offering nourishment for the soul. Guests can take relaxing walks, relishing the aroma of indigenous herbs and fynbos, or take a refreshing dip in the grotto pool. Alternatively, you can simply sit on the verandah, basking in the magnificent sights of the ocean and mountains while delighting in the diverse birdlife.

Fairhill Guest House & Nature Reserve Setting

Should guests desire to venture beyond the comfort of the guest house, they can go on a relaxing drive down to the wild Walker Bay beach (requiring a 4x4 vehicle), where they can wander in splendid seclusion for miles, reveling in the tranquility of the surroundings. Visitors also have a variety of activities to enjoy during their stay, including seasonal whale watching, exhilarating hikes, thrilling explorations of 4x4 routes, or the daring adventure of shark cage diving.

Additionally, there are several charming restaurants in the nearby towns to discover. For a stroll in nature, guests can meander through the vistas of the private nature reserve, or adventure to the renowned Klipgat Caves – conveniently located just 11 km away, offering an intriguing excursion. The central area of Hermanus is situated just 33 km from Fairhill Guest House & Nature Reserve, providing additional opportunities for exploration.

  • Homely property

    Beautiful house with all the amenities on a homely property. The house is perfect for a get together with extended family and our two small dogs. The hosts were extremely attentive and looked after us very well. Great location to explore all the area has to offer. Would highly recommend Fairhill Guest House. review
