Klonduke Cherry Farm is a working fruit farm in the Koue Bokkeveld, on the outskirts of the Ceres valley. We grow cherries, pears and apples. The farm has three self-catering cottages, a campsite and cherry-picking during season. Klonduke Cherry Farm is a 2 hour’s drive from Cape Town. We are situated at 1200 metres above sea level, so summers are cooler than Ceres, and the winters are crisp. Cell phone reception is poor around the farm, but you will find good signal in the driveway in front of the office where we have installed a booster aerial.
Accommodation at Klondyke Farm:
Self Catering Cottages: All three cottages are fully equipped for self-catering, but no TV available. We supply bedding and towels, crockery, kitchen equipment and utensils. There is a stove and fridge, microwave, kettle, and toaster in the kitchen. There are heaters in all the rooms, and electric blankets on the beds. Each cottage has an inside fireplace and an outside braai with firewood and blitz provided. Additional firewood to buy.
