In the heart of the Clare Valley lies Thorn Park Country House, a truly magnificent country home of traditional Australian style. Set in 60 acres of pastoral splendour it boasts tranquil vistas of undulating farmland studded with towering gums, grazing cattle and a dam; home to native ducks and other bird life.
The homestead was built in the 1850's from stone quarried on the site and was extensively restored in recent years to its original magnificence. The tranquil gardens feature hawthorn, elms and roses; a surround to the homestead in the traditional manner.
The estate spreads itself to include six bedrooms, each with its own ensuite, with accommodation for 12 guests. The reception areas include a spacious drawing room, intimate library, dining room and an extensive art collection.
Thorn Park Country House is considered one of Australia's leading Gourmet retreats. David and Michael are devoted to memorable dining, with food prepared utilising fresh, local produce. The property also offers a series of Residential Cooking Schools and there is a large cellar of Clare Valley wines to complement the cuisine.
