Thorn Park by the Vines is located on 12 acres on the edge of Sevenhill in the Clare Valley. The property manages to capture the essence of privacy and peace in this superb environment and has just the right amount of modernity and openness without ever intruding into the private spaces of the guest rooms. The homestead feels luxurious and utterly tasteful. A late afternoon drink on the main deck looking out over the dam at sunset, the view epitomises everything that the extraordinary landscape artist Sir Hans Heysen so cleverly captured on canvas in his superb landscapes.
Hosts, David Hay and Michael Speers are consummate professionals. Service is attentive and intuitive. Dining is memorable, utilising fresh produce and matched with great Clare Valley wines. Thorn Park by the Vines has only two guest rooms accommodating four guests at a time.
