Welcome to our website: Ben Nevis is situated at the foot of the Clocolan Mountain in the Clocolan district in the Eastern Free State.Pietie and Carina Botha bought the farm in 1973. Initially there were only a few cultivars, such as Black Tartarian, Bing, Giant Heidelfinger, Early Red, Black Biggareau and Napoleon. Over the years, however, three other orchards were planted with Stella, Van, Korum, Burlat, Rainier, Lambert, Lappins, Early Sweet, Early Royal and Royal Lee. There are also peach and plum orchards on the farm. Recently the two sons PJ and Jonker took over the farm, so that Pietie can retire and they farm with beef cattle too. Pietie and Carina are still on the farm. They help with the fruit, do the cellar and products, run the guest house and do the functions.

FARM CHERRY CELLAR - In 1994 the idea of opening a cellar where alcoholic beverages made from cherries could be produced occurred to Pietie as a way of adding value to the existing farming activities by introducing alcoholic products, produced from cherries. A cellar licence was approved in 1995 and a cherry liqueur, which fast became a hit with the public, was introduced. The liqueur and wine produced at Ben Nevis proved so popular that that the farm soon became such a popular tourist attraction that before long Ben Nevis was transformed into a fully-fledged guest farm. Ben Nevis was the first, and is still the only registered cellar in South Africa producing its unique range of products made from cherries. The farm has a tasting room for its liqueurs and wines, and there is a factory shop with a large range of bottled products and dried fruit from the farm. There is also a dining room for functions or tour groups.

Those who book in for a couple of nights of relaxation in a haven of peace and tranquillity, will be welcomed with true farm hospitality. There is a small camping site with space for five caravans or eight tents, with power and ablution facilities provided. Alternatively, there is three-star accommodation consisting of 2 self-catering units and three en-suite bed-and-breakfast rooms. The self-catering units are called KOSMOS & Vergeet my nie. Kosmos is an open-plan with a room with a double-bed and divan, a kitchen with a stove,microwave , fridge and a bathroom with a shower and bath. There is DStv and linen and towels are provided."Vergeet my nie" has got a dubbel and single bed in an open plan, but with a separate bathroom with a shower. There is a microwave oven and fridge in the kitchenette and braai facilities outside. The en suite rooms which make up the B&B share a dining room with a fireplace, a sitting room with DStv, a snooker table and an honesty bar. LAVENDER, which has an outside door, has two single beds.

Farm is in the middle of cherry orchards,in beautiful garden settings,with the swimming pool.
Rooms are in the farmhouse, tastefully furnished. there are 2 separate chalets. Short traveling distance to Lesotho border and other" cherry" small towns. Overhaul we had very pleasant stay at the farm.Thank you.

The owners were wonderful and went out of their way to accommodate our requests. Although they did not offer breakfast as part of their package, they made fantastic breakfasts for us. My fiance and I got engaged on the first night of our stay, and the staff went above and beyond to prepare our room with a candle lit 3 course meal for 2. Flowers and flower petals on the bed and on the floor. The perfect romantic engagement dinner. I would recommend Ben Nevis without hesitation.

We spent two peaceful nights at Ben Nevis in restful Kosmos, with our granddaughter. Carina is a helpful and friendly host, who went out of her way to make us as comfortable as possible. Her breakfast is fresh and fulfilling. She even made mealie pap and delicious gravy. Thank you for a memorable stay.
