We enjoyed an amazing visit to this most romantic establishment again this week. The ambience, warmth and incredibly artistic decor is something to engulf one's romantic vision of another era and place . A walk in the beautiful garden evoked the expectation of Alice and the white rabbit !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Romantic get away. Stayed 3 nights with the wood fire burning each night. It is centrally located with Stirling and Crafers nearby. Adelaide only 20 minutes away. Romantic setting restaurants around the area which makes this location perfect. We will stay again when visiting the area.

Visiting Thorngrove Manor is like going to a fairy tale castle, but it's only half an hour from Adelaide and two minutes from Stirling. The building itself is full of beautiful architectural and decorative details and the guest rooms transport you to another time and place - Middle Earth, Westeros or Avalon: take your pick. Hosts Nydia and Kenneth are...
