About the property

Situated 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.


Currently you can enjoy this premises for $235 per night for two people on week nights and $355 per night for two people on Friday, Saturday and Sunday or just $1500 five nights for two people, extra guests are $70p.p. This accommodation is well suited to large groups.

Thornbury has underfloor heating. Each bedroom is big and there is enough space to offer perfect privacy should five couples choose to occupy the home. The huge main bedroom has a king bed a dressing room as well as a large ensuite. The second bedroom has a queen bed with another ensuite. The third bedroom has a king bed that can be split into two king singles. The fourth and fifth bedrooms have queen beds. There is also a full main bathroom.

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.


Stretching 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.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for my 50th birthday getaway, and was very impressed with this home, plenty of space for all my guests, excellent kitchen and beautiful gardens and views. The bedrooms were spacious and all very clean and tidy. Could not fault this property at all, you can watch the beautiful birds in the gardens outside. Only slight downside is that fact that it is a little out of the town of Stanthorpe but well worth the drive.
