Idyllic cabin in the woods An incredible stay. We stayed in the forest lodge. Idyllic cabin and surrounds. Perfect getaway if you need some peace and quiet with great amenities and the most beautiful forest to explore. We will be visiting again! Thank you to Sue and the team :)

Natural Beauty at its Best I'm not really one for writing reviews, but for Rockwood, you just have to make an exception. No other accommodation establishment in the world (and believe me, I've visited more than a thousand) can hold a candle to their sumptuous ROCKWOOD FARMHOUSE. Style with substance; perfectly balanced use of indoor and outdoor space; superb interplay of light; a natural setting beyond compare; quality linen and furnishings; and world-class servicing. I cannot think of a single thing I would change about our visit.

Amazing location and accomodation The farmhouse is absolutely stunning with so many different spaces to enjoy! We were 2 families and at no time did we feel on top of each other. There are also 2 separate outdoor spaces that you can enjoy, depending on the weather. And the fireplaces and abundant supply of firewood just topped it all off for us.

Fantastic getaway in nature, away from it all, and close enough to what you looking for! We thoroughly enjoyed our family stay at the Forest lodge. Quality family time away from electronic distractions, surrounded by beautiful scenery and hiking trails. The cabin was truly something special and we will be making this an annual visit. We'll be keen to try the farm house and cottage along with friends next time. The location of the farm is truly special and you feel like you staying at the best kept secret in the midlands.

Farm House Stay Each time we stay at Rockwood, it is harder and harder to leave! Peace and quiet in a serenely beautiful setting and the welcoming staff make this the perfect place to unwind with family. The Big Green Egg's make any meal a sensational experience! We will definitely be back!

Karkloof Long Weekend Spacious, stylish and well-equipped. This house was wonderful and comfortably accommodated the 8 of us. The setting of the house and views out of every window were beautiful. Loved the two patios and the games room upstairs, there were many different areas one could relax in. The cycling route on the farm was also fantastic. We hope to visit again in future, can highly recommend the Farmhouse at Rockwood Lodge.

Great farm stay with family Fantastic accommodation (Farm house) great informative hike with Ant. We will be back in the summer when the rivers are flowing nicely so the kids can tube. Communication was great with Sue. Kids played for hours on the front lawn
