Description

Beneath the branches of the sweeping willows, the expansive reach of the Karoo sky lies Thorn Springs farm, the picture perfect Great Karoo homestead.

Built in 1905, the farm has a rich history filled with myth and local legend; passed from mother to daughter, father to son. A long stretch of dusty road, unfurls farmland before you, with a landscape of lush greens and warm desert hues in the shadow of the slumbering mountain. A leaping herd of springbok, birds of every colour, or a single earnest tortoise making its way into the thickets.

The interior is decorated with traditional Karoo charm and a generous touch of modern eccentricity. It is peppered with relics of times past, animal skin rugs and plush furniture. A fine art collection and photographs including many by Stephen Inggs which so perfectly reveal the surrounding landscape and treasured finds adorn the white washed walls. A laden bookcase invites one to curl up on the couch, or recline on the generous porch beneath a setting sun. The home offers a nostalgic atmosphere of old farm magic, custom and comfort.

6 en-suite rooms with a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, indoor braai, Outdoor Braai & Pizza Oven, dining room and very spacious lounge with fireplace. Lovely swimming dam, lazy wrap around old charm stoep with comfortable seating & dining options.
