We just loved our stay at Thornhill Farm. In this beautiful setting we were able to relax and spend quality time with our family and reconnect with nature. Long walks in the bush and evenings spent around a camp fire in this tastefully decorated farm house made this a memorable visit. And the bonus is that there are many sightseeing spots and a town (for supplies)within close distance. Will certainly be back.

My wife and I spent a magical week At Thorn Hill in August 2016. It is wonderfully situated with magnificent views especially at sunrise. The rooms are very comfortable and the other facilities are excellent including plentiful seating, braai, kitchen and good wifi in the lapa. It is a short drive into town which has a decent selection of restaurants and shops, including a superb butchers. There is plenty of interest around the area as well and stunning views of the Drakensbergs . For me the highlight of the trip however was the wildlife which was abundant, one is able to freely wander on the reserve and we spent one particularly delightful afternoon following an family of Giraffe through the bush. I would heartily recommend the place to anyone and will certainly be visiting again.
