About Blue Gum Country Estate

Blue Gum Country Estate is hidden in a valley that ascends towards the small town of Stanford, just outside Hermanus. The estate is a working wine farm and developing vineyards. The delightful Country Estate, nestled among ancient Blue Gum trees, overlooks the leafy banks of the Klein Rivier and encourages guests to relax in tranquil beauty and endless luxury.

ACCOMMODATION

Blue Gum Country Estate offers luxurious Manor House Rooms, decorated in a African Colonial style, and Mountain View Rooms, decorated in an English country style. All rooms have private verandahs with sprawling views of the vineyards or gardens, Klein Rivier Mountains and surrounding valley. Delightful interleading family room options are available for those with children.

All rooms offer mini-bar facilities, select satellite channels, full bathrooms and complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits.

DINING

Blue Gum also serves light lunches during the week (and is open to the general public Thursday to Sunday) and delicious hearty Sunday Roasts, perfect for family outings.

WEDDINGS

Weddings at Blue Gum are tailormade to suit the individual couple. Summer weddings under the Blue Gum tree overlooking the pond and vineyards are always a favourite, although Winter weddings are proving to run a very close second for brides who prefer a wedding by the fireside along with red wine and delicious, hearty winter food. The Blue Gum restaurant caters for the smaller more intimate wedding of up to 100 guests.

CONFERENCES

Blue Gum is the perfect conference retreat. The lodge offers a private conference room with views overlooking the valley and vineyards. Our conference facility can hold up to 12 delegates, however larger conferences can be arranged. Blue Gum is great for brainstorming as it offers a relaxed atmosphere to promote creative ideas and clear thinking. There are many activities on and around the estate which are great for team building exercises - such as paintball, quad biking, kayaking, boat based whale watching and many more.

ACTIVITIES

Bluegum provides guests with an abundance of activities to enjoy on the grounds, including a pool area, hiking, leisurely walks, mountain-bike riding, boule, bird-watching, tennis and various board games for a lazy afternoon's entertainment.

The Stanford area offers excursions such as the Klein Rivier Cheese Factory, Birkenhead Micro-Brewery, a leisurely boat trip down the Klein Rivier, wine-tasting at one of the many world-class wine estates, White Shark Cage Diving, trout fishing and horse riding to name a few. Hermanus and Gansbaai, just a 30 minute drive from Blue Gum, offer the best land and boat based whale watching in the world, fine restaurants, African crafts, organic markets and excellent golf courses.

We had a comfortable stay, good food and especially wonderful staff whom we could trust with our 18 month old son. Blue Gum is a beautiful country house with grounds to walk on and explore.
