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

My husband and I stayed at Abbotsford for two nights this weekend (10 & 11 May) and it was amazing. First time visitors to the Barossa and absolutely loved every second of it. 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 arrived to be greeted by Jane and Julian the owners. They couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Breakfast was sensational and was all local produce. The rooms were a great size ans the king sized beds were super comfortable! The location was perfect, just out of town. The view was breath taking!! We will defiantly... 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

We stayed at Abbotsford for 3 days over New Years in 2013. Jane and Julian were superlative hosts; great insights and advice for the region, sumptuous breakfasts (Jane is an amazing chef), and lovely property with two very friendly golden retrievers. Our room was very clean and spacious. We didn't need much cooling as we were lucky with the weather... More

On our arrival at Abbotsford, we were warmly welcomed by Julian who gave us a great precis of the surrounding area. The first two days of our stay were obscenely hot (47 degrees celsius) but the rooms stayed lovely and cool. The various accouterments in the room made the stay very comfortable. Breakfast was a treat (especially the home-stewed fruits)... More

We had a fantastic time, the best holiday in years! We loved the rural farm setting, the sunsets, wine and history that came with it. Jane and Julian you are superb hosts! Thanks also for the New Years Eve dinner!! Dieter & Mine'

A great choice. Home run. The setting is idyllic, in the country, perched on a hill. Jane and Julian are super. Breakfasts are an event, and excellent. Great base for exploring the wine country. Couldn't recommend a place more.

I cannot recommend Abbotsford Country House highly enough. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you are treated so wonderfully. Jane & Julian are the most perfect hosts. Nothing is too much for them. Giving advice and booking restaurants. We would stay again in a heartbeat. A beautiful couple with the most beautiful accommodation. Thank you so... More
