Ben Nevis Cherry Cellar & Guestfarm is situated at the foot of the Clocolan Mountain. The town "Clocolan" is named after the mountain. The word "Clocolan" is the European distortion of the Sotho word "Hlohowane" which refers to the climax in a war. Various Bushman paintings found in the mountain are evidence that the area was originally inhabited by bushmen.

Guests can choose to have Bed and Breakfast Accommodation or experience farm life by staying in a self-catering accommodation chalet. Dinner is served on request. We also have a camping site for those who prefer the outdoors.

Should you like to stay overnight, you'll be overwhelmed by real farm hospitality and our affordable rates.

Visitors are welcome to taste a range of different cherry wines and liqueurs. The wine is a unique alcoholic cherry beverage, which contains 11% to 13% alcohol per volume and has been exclusively developed by the owners Pietie & Carina Botha, over a period of many years. People are fond of the cherry liqueur which contains 24% alcohol per volume.
