Looking for a break at the end of a hectic year, we stayed at Thorn Park for the last three nights of 2016. It was wonderful. The house is beautiful. Each room is filled with an eclectic assemblage of the old and new that reflects a discerning taste and creates a serenity that strips away the stresses of the real...

My family and I had a wonderful stay here! The food is amazing, it is all homemade (even the bread) and cooked right in front of you. They served us a delicious dinner and breakfast. The people are very hospitable and take care of your every need. I would highly recommend staying here for a nice weekend away. The house...

It was more than 12 years since we stayed with David and Michael at the "old" Thorn Park and we were not disappointed with our return visit. The new house is spectacular; the hospitality is just as gracious and the food is simply outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts to make our stay relaxed and enjoyable and...

Another great escape to the countryside at Thorn Park. We just love coming back here as it feels like a very comfortable shoe! Wonderful setting, great food by David and exceptional service by Michael. They make you feel so at home without doing any of the work. We love the CLARE Valley and the boys just make this part of...

For years I have hankered to visit Thorn Park. Oh why did I wait? On the surface it's a serious investment, but the experience justifies it in minutes. The hospitality and detail of hosts David and Michael is without peer. Knowing when to chat, knowing when to give space. Exceptional detail and a chef of utmost skill. The food is...

It's a bit daunting writing a review of New Thorn Park. I never give five out of five on principle but the effort and the emotion the proprietors of Thorn put into your stay can't be faulted. So Five it is going to be. The premises look like a demountable from the outside but inside it is solid and cosy....

If Thorn Park was in Victoria, my husband and I would absolutely spend every other weekend here - it is that good! The property and rooms themselves are perfect. Centrally located by the Clare Valley wineries and situated amongst gorgeous bush, the house is beautifully set up. We stayed in the Mocha room (in our opinion the best room in...

We had a fantastic 3 night stay in this elegant and comfortable house, enjoying the hospitality of Michael and David. The Clare Valley has so much to offer and exploring from a base as blissful as Thorn Park, is a treat. The degustation dinners (extra cost) prepared by David with local wines presented by Michael, are as good as you...

This is the second time we have stayed with David and Michael. The first was in their old establishment just at the time they had decided to sell, so visiting them again a couple of years later in their new "home' was something we had been promising ourselves for some time. On arrival you are greeted with great generosity and...
