We have recently returned from a 2 day stay at this wonderful B & B in the Clare Valley. This place is the place you go to have a few days of luxury and sheer relaxation. Our friendly, experienced hosts, David & Michael make your stay 'special'.
Located in a secluded, picturesque Australian gum tree setting, the home also overlooks their own dam and nearby vines.
Thorn Park by the Vines is a relatively new homestead comprising 3 double bedrooms, each with en-suite, large feature kitchen and beautifully furnished and decorated formal areas. Each bedroom has a different colour theme. Our 'Mocha' room was large and beautifully appointed. It exuded comfort and the temperature was always perfect. The White room and the Yellow room were of the same high standard !!!. Bathrooms included under floor heating, generous toiletries, luxurious towels and a towel rail that ensured a warm towel after a great shower!
Meals are a feature of your stay at Thorn Park.
Breakfast is a leisurely affair of a variety of home made cereals, fresh special yoghurt, freshly squeezed orange juice, and a hot breakfast. Each morning was different, from scrambled eggs with avocado and smoked ocean trout to eggs with baked prosciutto in a baked pastry cup. Home made jams and freshly baked sourdough bread finished the meal nicely. Time to walk the Riesling Trail!
At night you can opt for the Dinner...Don't leave without enjoying this gastronomical delight! David's menus are superb and, of course, accompanied by an appropriately special wine list. Our meal started with an asparagus tart, followed by barramundi braised in a saffron infused broth with kipfler potatoes and oven roasted tomatoes. Yummy !!! . A citrus salad to cleanse the palate then dessert of chocolate tart and home made sauce. Afterwards, a cup of coffee and enjoy the company of your fellow guests. Nothing is too much trouble for Michael and David. They will make bookings at local venues and suggest activities to enhance your visit to the beautiful Clare Valley. Every attention is given to detail. Nothing is overlooked.
Go and enjoy...You won't regret it !!
