Rockhaven Farm is a property for self catering in Porterville for tourists visiting the Swartland region.

About Rockhaven Farm

Rockhaven Farm is a two hour drive from Cape Town and is a working farm above the town of Porterville. Unlike a number of surrounding getaways, Rockhaven has the unfair advantage of being nestled among the spectacular Groot Winterhoek Mountains.

Self Catering Accommodation

The cottages sleep a maximum of six in three bedrooms at Lavender, and four in two bedrooms at Erica, respectively. The farmhouse sleeps a maximum of fourteen guests in seven bedrooms, and also offers wonderful common areas, including a fresh rock pool.

The furnishings in both our cottages and the farmhouse are fresh and neat and everything is in place for a very pleasant stay – all that you need bring is a sensible mix of well-behaved mates and maybe the family hound. We provide a bath towel per guest, please bring your own swimming towels. Please don't use our bath towels outside of the cottages

Stofelina makes delicious farm bread and rusks, but she needs to be contacted before you arrive to let her know if you wish to order. Stofelina se Winkel is always open with fresh eggs, milk and other goodies if you run out. Firewood is also available for sale. We sell all our produce from the farm.


Maximum of one dog allowed in Lavender and Erica cottages. No dogs allowed in the Farm House. Please be advised however that Rockhaven is a working farm and there are both wild animals and livestock on the farm. If your dog has difficulty controlling itself around other animals, Rockhaven may not be the place for him / her.

The Area

The surrounding Jupiter landscape has plenty of walks, nooks and crannies to explore, orchards to lose yourself in, rivers to dip in and out of, buck to spot and enough snow every second winter or so to build a snowman. Sit on the stoep and watch the sun set slowly on the Citrusdal Valley, take a stroll to the farm dam and enjoy a dip in its crystal clear waters, walk further along to the rock pools and waterfalls of the Ratel River, or simply lie back on the lawn and soak up the rays.

The Cape Nature Wilderness area is close by as well and is famous for its floral beauty and places such as De Hel and De Tronk. Permits to enter the reserve must be obtained from Cape Nature in Porterville in advance.
