We are a party of three adult couples from sydney in the Barossa to taste the wines and the food. Abbotsford was a perfect base for touring the Barossa. The common areas are comfortably furnished. The breakfasts cooked by Jane are delicious and no requests are too complicated. Perfect eggs sausages even haggis are on the menu. In fact Julian... More

We chose to stay at Abbotsford Country House. To our pleasant surprise the accommodation was magic and exceeded our expectations. The rooms were large, cozy, warm and inviting with big bathrooms and well thought out accessories. The rooms are bright and comfortable. We were warmly greeted by Julian and Jane, our hosts who made our stay homely and enjoyable. Nothing... More

We were a small group of 2 couples. We chose Abbotsford because of the country feel. The rooms present just as the pic in the above ad. The rooms appear rather eclectic and as some have stated appear a bit mismatched. The view from the main house, ie lounge and kitchen is absolutely Devine, but there is no view from... More

May 2014 - My husband Max put together a surprise trip for my birthday to Barossa via Beechworth, Bendigo, Great Ocean Road etc. The last 4 days were spent at Abbotsford County House. AMAZING! Julian was on his own until our last day when Jane returned home. He was more than welcoming and made us feel at home. Considering we... More

Our fifth time in the Barossa and our fourth consecutive time staying at Abbotsford House, nicely situated with views over the valley. Jane and Julian are the perfect hosts - from making sure we had dinner reservations (on a long weekend mind you) to Larry's eggs for breakfast. The rooms are nicely appointed and perfect for the weekend away. We... More

Jane was the best host we have ever had, so friendly and providing us with great advice on where to eat and good wineries to visit. The... More

It was a perfect weekend, from start to finish. The hosts, Jane and Julian were exceptionally welcoming and helpful, breakfast on all three morning was fabulous. We had an outdoor fire on two nights in a row - it was a wonderful opportunity to sit around it and sample more beautiful local wine. The room was spacious and clean, the... More

We had such a wonderful time during our first 2-night stay in 2010 that we made sure to include Abbotsford in our plans for our 2013 visit. This time we stayed for 8 nights during the Barossa Vintage Festival. Abbotsford was just a fantastic as we had remembered! The property is in a beautiful location amongst rolling hills and vineyards.... More
