Scenes from Stanford, the village around the Green

Stanford – only slightly inland from the coastal towns that make up the Overberg Whale Route – is the quintessential quaint country village.  Full of charm, artisans, crafters, arty folks and stunning eateries, life centres around the village green.  It’s easy to get lost there for a weekend and the Saturday market is a must visit.

Instead of taking the usual touristy snaps of churches and sunsets, I looked behind the scenes at what makes Stanford so appealing.

  1. He he, they definitely have a sense of humour here! I like the guest relations, but couldn’t go past the dog stop – my favourite dog and cartoon ever! You have encouraged me to explore this town when next I am in the area. Lovely post and photos.


    1. Thanks Erin. Stanford is really quaint and there is a lot to do in the surrounds too. In fact put the whole of the Overberg on your Bucket List 🙂 I loved Napier, Arniston, Agulhas, Gansbaai, Hermanus and the Hemel en Aarde (Heaven and Earth) Valley.
