Just minutes from the previous Thorn Park Country House, Thorn Park by the vines is located on the edge of Seven Hill in the Clare Valley in South Australia.
David Hay and Michael Speers have delivered another magnificent dining and accommodation experience and of an equally high quality. An exquisite private location, with bush and vineyard views looking out over their dam, Thorn Park by the Vines has an 'Australianness' about it that will make their luxury accommodation and superb regional dining the destination of choice by international and national travellers alike.
A slightly less formal dining experience, the galley kitchen is open to the dining room, making the theatre of the kitchen dramatically close. The downside of the experience remains hidden in the scullery. As Gertrude Stein recommended, this element of the dining experience 'should not be seen'.
Each suite has its own view and private area. Quiet spaces and the extensive library remain very important elements of the accommodation experience. New furnishings, beautiful fabrics and the expected extravagances sit comfortably amongst a few favourite pieces kept from Thorn Park Country House, giving Thorn Park by the Vines small but comforting touches of familiarity.
With two luxurious double rooms, both with ASDL connection, Thorn Park by the Vines sleeps four people, and rooms can be booked singly or as a group. Views of the individual room will be added to the web site as they are furnished, and cooking classes and special events will be posted from news and events. Reservations are being taken for March 2009.
