This delightful venue hosted the Wines of Elgin Chardonnay Colloquium last weekend, and did so with aplomb. Great setting in a beautiful area, ideal for a lovely wedding. Delicious food presented superbly. Accommodation on site as well.

We attended a wedding at Rockhaven and it was absolutely beautiful!!! The scenery is breathtaking and we had a great time. But I could not believe my ears when I heard the way the owner Liz spoke to all involved with the wedding. She is plain rude and was unprofessional and had no respect for her client!!

We just had our wedding at Rockhaven Farm and I really cannot praise the venue highly enough. The venue was perfect for us - it was just the the right amount of rustic and chiqueness we wanted. The food was divine and Liz knows exactly what she is doing! She helped me along the way and gave me some awesome... More

This is a self catering house for holiday rental. We stayed in the smaller cottage. Rate is reasonable and they were very accommodating of our dogs. Getting hold of the owners to book, ask questions and also when we arrived was quite difficult ( we waited half an hour to find the owner so we could get the keys). I... More

I really can't praise this venue highly enough. Rockhaven is simply, naturally beautiful. Tucked away in the Elgin Valley, surrounded by apple, pear & olive trees, watch the sunset over the hills in the distance, dip your feet in the water from the deck of the dam, or join their friendly labradors for a swim. The food was e.x.c.e.l.l.e.n.t -... More

We were married on Rockhaven Farm a year ago. When we were first looking for wedding venues, we had seen photos of friends who were married there and all the photos told the same story: of a place with natural beauty, honesty and authenticity that made for very special occasions. We visited the farm a year before the wedding and... More

My husband and I were married on Rockhaven Farm. The rooms, the hospitality, the food, the energy, the love, the idyllic space, the beauty and everything surrounding Rockhaven makes this farm one of the most treasured, most beautiful places I have ever seen.

My bridal party and I stayed at Rockhaven for four days in November whilst I got married in the Elgin Valley. We also held our reception in the farm barn and had our pre-dinner drinks on the lawns and in the boathouse next to the dam. The smaller guest cottage, set amongst the apple and olive trees, was perfect accomodation... More

“I think the larger cottage is closer to the dam which has a nice view and is cooler near the water.”
