We stayed three nights at Abbotsbury in the Garden Suite. We were welcomed by Sue and shown to our cottage. Sue explained the arrangements for serving dinner and breakfast in our cottage and then showed us some of her delightful garden. The cottage is beautifully decorated in a country style and well provided with magazines and books. All the meals... More

The accommodation was comfortable and the food was good, but there was no television, and as we had to have our dinner in our room we felt a bit at a loose end. The bath towels provided were very rough and scratchy. It does not take much to put them in a tumble dryer to fluff them up when they... More

Abbotsbury worked out a good two night stop over ( one of many) for our road trip from Durban Capetown on all the back roads. Its convenient for seeing the area and very pleasant with great food and the lovely Pricilla to bring us our meals. Thanks Sue for your lovely accommodation and beautiful garden.

Last here about 5 years ago. In Abbotsbury time has stood still in a good way - just as good as we remembered it, a cut-off oasis away from the main road. This time I came armed with high-powered binoculars and a Roberts guide; the bird life on the farm is very interesting, including a resident Martial Eagle family on... More

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
