Beautiful location for a quiet escape having spent 3 nights in this country home. Spacious room with stunning views. Port and food platter a nice touch. Living room in main house amazing. Julian an excellent friendly host who has lots of tales to tell. Cooked a substantial tasty breakfast each morning so thank you. However it’s the attention to detail that lets this property down, which is a shame. Cobwebs on door, dusty throughout, no hot water on first day (however was fixed). No servicing of room but managed. It’s the little things that contribute to making an experience 5 star. Looks like the property is up for sale so that may be is the answer.
My husband and i prepaid $1000 for 4 nights in early July. Unfortunately SA shut its borders to NSW on 26 June and we were unable to go on our holiday. I sent an email advising that we would not be able to visit through no fault of our own. No reply! I emailed again and again and rang on several occasions. Finally they responded and offered a 3 mth credit! I stated that this would be impossible as the borders would still be closed. After another half dozen emails they finally extended to a 6 mth credit. This also is inadequate as the borders show no sign of opening. I have repeatedly emailed requesting a refund or at the very least a further 6 mths credit but again no response. I have now taken this issue up with NSW fair trading and have communicated with SA fair trading regarding this establishment.…
What an amazing find! Kudos to Jane and Julian for their incredible hospitality. Stunning countryside and brilliant location. The facilities at Abbotsford House are second to none. Fabulous hosts with amazing knowledge of the Barossa. We can’t not mention Abbotsford’s Golden’s: handsome Hank, beautiful Nancy and sweet ol’ Sergeant… the most delightful way to be welcomed each morning!!! Thank you thank you thank you. !

Julian and Jane were excellent hosts, very warm and welcoming. Breakfast was amazing, with a little Scottish influence which was well received. The rooms were neat and very cosy. The shower was amazing. Great atmosphere, beautiful views. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about the the Barossa Valley and gave us some helpful hints about what to see and where to dine. Very enjoyable stay. Thanks Julian and Jane. Tania and Baillie.
Our hosts were extremely hospitable. The quality of bed linen and toiletries are way above what might be expected from a bed and breakfast - which are very convivial. There is a host of great restaurants and cafes in nearby Tanunda. Highly recommended
Just got home from the Barossa, having stayed at Abbotsford Country House for 4 nights. Julian greeted us as we drove up the driveway telling us where to park. The room was your typical country style , with chocolates & a decanter of port for your consumption. The room is big with a large bathroom & deep bath tub. My husband & I enjoyed our stay, admittedly I was surprised not to see a tv at first but I got over it quick as I soaked in the sprawling valley of vineyards & the black hefer cows grazing in the foreground who I would chat to going in & out of the property! The main house has a lovely lounge area & is very pleasant! Breakfast every morning in the dining room was great, chatting to Julian plus meeting overseas visitors was a highlight! The Barossa is a wonderful place, tasty wine with plenty cellar doors to visit , we did 4 days back to back wine tasting & we visited at least 5 or more a day & still we probably just scraped the surface. Thanks Julian & Jane had a delightful stay ! (Say bye to Beldy for me!) …
Jane and Julian are terrific hosts at this very spacious property . The rooms are large , well equipped and quiet . Excellent breakfast cooked by Jane and terrific advice about the Barossa Valley which is stunning and has plenty of interesting features , not just wine tasting . The owners welcome you very warmly , creating a delightfully relaxed atmosphere and a lot of fun
Our recent stay for a client of ours was really nice. He was welcomed and certainly was looked after by hosts Julian and Janee. They are so knowledgeable, serve a beautiful meal, the main building certainly has the country house/lodge feel. If you want to be spoiled, want quietness and country old fashioned hospitality it’s the place to be. Thankyou.
