Rivergate Carpenters Cottage is a property for self catering in Stanford for up to 2 guests visiting the Cape Overberg region.

About Rivergate Carpenters Cottage

Carpenters Cottage is an open plan cottage located on Rivergate Guest Farm, a working farm on the banks of the Klein River, just 2,3km from Stanford. The farm offers Stanford accommodation in cottages situated in and around landscaped gardens and are in close proximity to farm animals including alpacas, chickens and miniature donkeys.

Self Catering Accommodation

The Carpenters Cottage has been tastefully decorated with vintage carpenter’s pieces giving the space an authentic feel.

There is a king bed which can also be converted into twin beds if required. These are made up using luxury linen including an electric blanket in winter. The artisan tiled bathroom has a shower, basin and toilet and Rivergate branded amenities.

The fully fitted kitchenette is perfectly appointed to enjoy a self-catering stay. The suite has an indoor fireplace for the cooler Overberg months and a built in outside braai to enjoy alfresco dining under the fairy lit pergola. The suite is set in an enclosed garden with pool loungers and a day bed.

This unit does not have its own woodfired pool.


Delicious breakfast baskets from The Eatery are included in our rates and delivered to you each morning.

On Site Facilities

Within the landscaped gardens there is vegetable garden which supplies the Eatery, the various meal baskets we offer as well as a farm shop/deli. The Eatery is open on Fridays and Saturdays for lunch.

The food baskets and charcuterie boards are available on request to be enjoyed on the farm and while relaxing at your cottage. Guests have access to the river for fishing, swimming, canoeing or SUPing.


Overlooked by a majestic mountain range, hugged by the Klein Rivier running through it, and just 15 minutes from the ocean, Stanford is a charming and a hidden gem in the Overberg. The heart of the village boasts an original market square, a village green and a miscellany of shops and places to eat.

Quaint Victorian houses dot the tree-lined streets where villagers have time to stop for a friendly chat or a cup of coffee and a delicious piece of cake just freshly baked at one of the local eateries. Whether you are looking for a peaceful romantic getaway, adventures with the family, or a place to relax and recharge, you'll find it here in abundance.
