by the vines

Just minutes from the previous Thorn Park Country House, Thorn Park by the vines is located on the edge of Sevenhill 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.

The galley kitchen is open to the dining room, making the theatre of the kitchen dramatically close. The less glamorous but necessary aspects of meal preparation remain 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 three luxurious double rooms, all with ASDL connection, Thorn Park by the vines sleeps six guests, and rooms can be booked singly or as a group. Views of the individual rooms and listed facilities can be viewed by clicking the links below. Cooking classes are available by prior arrangement.
