“Extravagant place to stay”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Thornbury for our annual girls' weekend. When we arrived we were surprised by how beautiful the place was. We each had a bedroom and with three bathrooms there was no waiting. The fireplace was stacked with timber cut ready to use. It was an extremely cold weekend, it snowed on the day we arrived, but the house with the fireplace and heated floors was very pleasant. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. Communication with Lester and Heather was professional and prompt. We will definitely be going back for another stay.

“lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Thornbury Lodge over the school holidays with three families - it was a wonderful place to stay with extensive grounds, beautiful furnishings, very clean, and importantly, warm. We loved the fire and the kitchen and the very comfy beds. We had an ugly jumper themed Christmas in July party and got some wonderful photos in the very well maintained gardens. Heather and Lester were very accommodating and quick to respond with all our requests. We would love to return at some point.

“This is the best.............”

What a great house to share with friends – who could ask for more.

There were three couples in our party and there was ample room for all. The master bedroom with ensuite is BIG, the other rooms were good sized rooms with a shared bathroom. A large kitchen and oven handled all our cooking needs, there’s a BBQ as well if needed. We ate inside at a large table and lunch was outside on a beautiful paved area.
We kept the large open fire going most of the time, it was mainly for show as the under floor heating kept the house at a beautiful temperature, you could walk around bare footed while it was -7 below outside.

The house was well appointed in all respects. All our dealings with the owners (Lester & Heather) went smoothly, they responded quickly with any queries and were a pleasure to meet and do business with.

The gardens are especially nice and would be a delight in spring; they were pretty good in winter. The property is surrounded by grazing cattle, so don’t jump the fence for a wander.

The property is located about 15 minutes out of Stanthorpe so make sure you take everything with you, basic cleaning items are provided. It’s about a 2km walk to the lavender farm nearby for a coffee or change of scenery. There are no shops in the village of Liston.

A great place if you like peace and quiet. It’s also a great base for visiting both the wineries and national parks in the area. We booked a winery tour with Granite Highlands maxi tours (http://www.maxitours.com.au/) they picked us up from the house at about 09:45, we visited 6 wineries, a cheese factory and olive farm, lunch was also included and they dropped us back home just after 17:00. We’d recommend them.

We look forward to returning

Thornbury Lodge is an exquisite oasis about 20km from Stanthorpe. Perfect for a getaway with friends or family. We went with three other couples and were in awe at the beauty of the the house and surrounding gardens. The attention to detail within the house is a welcome surprise. The heated flooring, the open fire and the electric blankets make a stay in Winter perfectly comfortable. We only wish we had stayed longer. This is one place we will definitely be returning to.
