Description

Thornsprings is situated less than 30 km from Middelburg in the Eastern Cape and offers quality accommodation for a family holiday. The farmhouse was built with beautifully cut, tawny sandstone in the style of Herbert Baker. Its thick walls and high ceilings render the rooms cool on scorching summer days, and warm when cold nights set in.

It’s both simple and functional, with wonderful spaces for lounging, cooking and dining. There are comfortable sofas, a well-stocked library, and the fireplaces are stacked with wood.

There are 2 bedrooms attached to the main house, 1 with a king-size bed and 1 with 2 single beds. Both bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom fitted with either a bath and shower or a shower only. These rooms are accessed from the outside via private entrances from the patio. The other 4 bedrooms are situated in a separate building near the main house. The first and second bedrooms both have a queen-size bed and an en-suite bathroom fitted with a shower. The third bedroom contains twin single beds and its en-suite bathroom has a bath. The fourth bedroom has a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a bath and romantic outside shower.

The farm-style kitchen has everything guests will need for a care-free, self-catering stay. It includes a stove and oven, a fridge-freezer, microwave, coffee- and tea-making facilities, crockery and cutlery.

The wrap-around patio has ample seating and there are an outdoor braai area and pizza oven.

This wondrous and unique home is an ideal backdrop for soaking up the simplicity of life in 1 of the most iconic landscapes. Savour long languid days and star-filled nights with family and friends. There is no better place to escape the grind of daily stresses. Stretch out and restore, drinking in the peace and sublime beauty of the Karoo.

The sweeping plains of the Great Karoo resonate with antiquity. Quiet and patient, its pastel time-washed koppies, valleys and parched riverbeds have endured for millennia. Early hunter-gatherers, pioneers, explorers, prospectors and travellers passed through, while the vast landscape presided regardless.
