Stanford. There is something magical in the name; it conjures up a different time, a different pace. The village is renowned for its determined preservation of a Victorian past, with an active heritage committee holding it all together. It would be easy to whizz past the entrance, but do turn in and book accommodation for the night. Then take a cruise down the meandering Klein River with its abundant bird life and distant mountain views. And relax. Before you head off, the winemakers on the Route have something special to offer: not only excellent wines but also a very warm welcome.
