Blue Gum Country Estate
Stanford, Overberg - Accommodation
Blue Gum Country Estate in Stanford
The 12 rooms at Blue Gum are all different, as you would expect in a private home. Some are more spacious, others more family-friendly, but they all have a warm domestic feeling with an emphasis on quality and comfort. We make no apologies about food being a main draw card, with two restaurants catering for families and informal get-togethers as well as a more formal and romantic alternative catering to adults only.
The Estate is situated amongst an olive grove, vineyards, rolling lawns and extensive gardens with swimming pool, tennis court, boule court, mountain bikes, extensive library and board games. You will find something to suit every interest and persuasion, both on or off the estate whether you are a foodie, walking enthusiast, history buff, adrenalin junkie.

Reviews for Blue Gum Country Estate
Bluegum was wonderful i would highly recommend.
Excellent venue, attention to detail is amazing. Highly recommended even for 1 night
Amazing overnight stay. Dinner is Fabulous. Breakfast is Fantastic. Anton and his team are super friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make their guest feel special. And attention to detail is appreciated with choccies on the pillow with a turndown, clean towels provided and glasses washed while you are having dinner... And Then a knock on the door when you return to your room to be given a liqueur and truffels.... WOW.
I just spend 3 nights at Blue Gum and it has officially become one of my favorite places to stay. The guest house is elegantly luxurious with a rustic charm that does not make it pretentious. It's set on a beautiful mountain estate that leaves you listening to the various unique sounds of birds life while you recover from the hustle and bustle of city life. The owners, Anton and Taryn, and their staff run the place immaculately. I've never felt so spoilt and well taken care of.Oh, and come hungry. The delectable food, from breakfast to the light meals to the dinners will definitely add on a few pounds. At least there is a lovely estate to walk it off.A can't say enough about this place and could never do it justice in a review. Just visit and see for yourself.
Had a wonderful stay. Great service and personal touch
Beautiful lodge in a peaceful country setting. Rooms comfortable. Staff friendly
Extremely nice establishment. Enjoyed every minute at Blue Gum estate. Could not ask for a better getaway. Service was great. Thank you to Anton & Tarryn and their accommodating staff and thank you to their parents for the lovely breakfast chats. See you soon Blue Gum.
Beautiful views all around, stunning and secluded rooms, turn down service, tea/coffee station, bar fridge, tea time scones and biscuits, lunch available, buffet breakfast and set dinner menu!! What more could you ask for. Wow!! Such an amazing break away with amazing staff.
I've been to Bluegum a couple of times over the last few years and every time we had an excellent time. The rooms are so spacious, lots of outdoor grass to play for my daughter, great swimming pool and stunning food at the restaurant. Can't wait to go back, again!
Fabulous venue in a farm environment. Beautifully appointed room and stunning dinners and breakfasts. Off the beaten track a bit, but well worth the stay. Staff give you a very warm welcome.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Very polite and willing to go that extra mile for you.
Stunning estate for weddings,conferences or just a quiet stay
Cosy winter hideaway. Friendly staff,good food and pleasant accommodation
Stayed at the Stanford Valley Guest Farm down the road, but had an absolutely wonderful dinner at Blue Gum. One of the few restaurants around Stanford not closed for dinner from Mondays to Wednesdays. Beautiful gardens. Tastefully decorated interior, good background music, really good food and well presented. Very good atmosphere as well. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
"Wonderful country retreat"
A wonderful country retreat, highly recommended!
"Perfect family getaway"
We made a last minute decision to go away for the weekend and couldn't have been happier with this gem that we found just outside Stanford. Great hosts, very family friendly, delicious breakfasts and dinners and lovely decor. A wonderful place to read a book by a fire, or sip sherry looking at the beautiful views. Highly recommended!
