To avoid disappointment for next winter we are currently taking bookings for 2016.WHEN MAKING AN ENQUIRY PLEASE CHECK PRICING WITH THE OWNER BEFORE PAYINGSituated just minutes from Stanthorpe, this magnificent new home is styled as a rambling Tuscan homestead all set on 130 abundant acres. The landscaped gardens are finished off with a stunning pond and arbor garden which can be viewed from one of the many covered verandas which conveniently host outdoor setting areas and well-placed comfortable seating scattered at the best viewpoints. You'll hear nothing but the odd moo from a cow at night from your bed, and the wineries are a stone's throw away. 'Thornbury' feels like an exclusive stately homestead in Napa Valley, but is nestled in magnificent gardens with such close proximity to everything the Granite Belt has to offer, you'll have privacy yet still have access to everything you need, it?s the best of both worlds. PricesCurrently you can enjoy this premises for $220 per night for two people on week nights and $330 per night for two people on Friday and Saturday or just $1500 five nights for two people, extra guests are $60p.p. This accommodation is well suited to large groups. Thornbury has air conditioning and underfloor heating. Each bedroom is big and there is enough space to offer perfect privacy should five couples choose to occupy the home. Each of the three bedrooms has a queen-size double bed and the master bedroom has a King-size bed. The home is beautifully furnished in Tuscan-style, with plush lounges, deck chairs and big verandas overlooking the beautifully manicured gardens which are maintained by a gardener year-long. Just 3 hours from Brisbane airport we believe this is one of the best accommodation options in Stanthorpe. LocationStretching just 60kms from north to south and roughly half as wide, the Granite Belt is small but diverse. Dotted along the New England Highway are our villages and hamlets, with Stanthorpe, the main central town. Through the region, country lanes wind through vineyards, orchards and the namesake granite boulders which dot the landscape like crazy marbles. Village life in the Granite Belt is everything you imagined - friendly, quiet and cute. Each village and hamlet has its own style - take the time to explore them.More

About the neighbourhood
Thornbury is a luxury lodge on the outskirts of the village of Liston. It is part of a working angus cattle property and during may baby calves can be seen in the fields around the house. Thornbury is set amongst lavish gardens designed by a local designer. A drive south to Tenterfield via the Mt Lindesay Rd and return to Stanthorpe via the New England Highway past the wine growing area of Ballendene makes an enjoyable day out.
