This cosy cottage is situated in the core conservation area and looks out across the Stanford Village Green. Its a short walk away from the 'high' street, shops and restaurants and an easy amble to the river.

Originally the outbuildings of the adjacent Farrier House, sensitive restorations have created a spacious, charming and comfortable unit for a small family or a group of friends. Horseshoe Cottage can be rented separately, or in conjunction to the larger house next door; where access to the expansive garden and swimming pool may be enjoyed. Privacy and seclusion is ensured with a separate entrance, dedicated parking spot and private cottage garden. The spreading branches of the ancient fig tree shades the outdoor table and braai area. The home is furnished in Cape Cottage style, and the comfortable seating centres around the fire place in the lounge. A single bed is tucked in one corner for an additional guest. The spacious dressing and shower room lead off the lounge. 

The open plan kitchen/dining area is well equipped with a fridge/freezer, gas hob (no oven), microwave, kettle and toaster. A dining table and two easy chairs provide adequate seating next to the well stocked book shelf. Happy doors open onto a small sunny garden.

Bedrooms: Sleeps 3; 2 in the bedroom in a double bed and a single bed in the lounge. 

Bathrooms: Shower room.

Linen and towels provided, but bring your own swimming towels.
