We left the N9 onto the farm road and enjoyed the slow drive into this lovely oasis! Approaching the farm we passed the sheep and farm workers herding the goats. We expected, from viewing the website, something special and were not disappointed! We were met by the owner, Sue Scott, who showed us to our 2 bedroomed cottage. Travelling with... More

I visited Abbotsbury during a recent road trip and it is the ideal place to go if you just want to relax. The bed was comfortable and the suite had a en-suite bathroom and separate living room where dinner and breakfast was served. The venison pie was excellent and more than enough for two guests. I would definitely recommend Abbotsbury... More

this little gem was quite a find!! my cousin's wife found this place while trying to break up our trip in two as we were going to Plettensburg Bay. When we arrived, there was such a sense of peace. The rooms are really quite lovely, bed very comfortable. Sue and staff are so nice. Food was really very good. I... More

An ideal stopover on your way to or from the coast, 27 km outside Graaff-Reinet, on the N9. Excellent accommodation with comfy beds, heaters and electric blankets to take the chill off the Karoo winter, peaceful farm surroundings and delicious, home-cooked food served in your suite. Sue Scott is a charming and friendly hostess and she and her staff will... More

If you are looking for a beautifuly accomodation, hearty, fresh and organic farm style food and personal service you should stay with Sue at Abbotsbury about 20 km from Graaf-Reinet. We booked one of the lovely equipped cottages and felt so pampered getting served a perfectly cooked springbok pie in our cottage for dinner, later snuggling in the huge double... More

Thank you Sue for taking such good care of us. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home and looked after. The suite was perfect, overlooking your beautiful garden with the mountains as a backdrop - what more could we want. Breakfast and dinner in particular, "were to die for" - just one complaint ... after... More

I've enjoyed Sue's special brand of hospitality twice in the last two years while doing the Joburg Cape Town haul and loved it. For me, its perfect for a stopover, offering a really comfortable sleep with luxurious linen, dinner in your own suite and the convenience of an honesty bar. The dinner is delicious local specialities and the dessert is... More

We just loved our 3 night stay here - do not go for any less. Everything about Abbotsbury echoes Sue's eye for detail and quality from the crisp white cotton sheets, her beautifully cooked meals, her amazingly lush garden full of roses, her warm hospitality and even her charming floppy eared goats. Marvellous value for money. We would and will... More

There's much to see in the Karoo, and GR is a good base from which to explore. We only stayed one night en route to Knysna from Jhb. The reception was warm and efficient, dinner served in our room (a spacious suite actually) was wholesome and delicious: Springbok pie, veggies, malva pud with custard - all well prepared and well...
