About Abbotsford Country House in Barossa Valley

Surrounded by the hills and vineyards of the Barossa Valley, famous for its food and wines including Shiraz, Semillon and Reisling, sits Abbotsford Country House. It overlooks vineyards, farming country and on to the Barossa Ranges.

Enjoying arguably the best views in the Barossa and set on 50 acres of farmland, this country house retreat is run as a fully hosted, traditional and luxurious guesthouse and provides a home away from home in the Barossa for it's Australian and international visitors alike.

Nestled close behind the magnificent homestead in Abbotsford's sunken garden are two guest cottages that, like the homestead, are built in true Colonial Georgian style. Its eight, spacious, individually decorated suites, each with large ensuite bathrooms, are furnished with antiques collected over 12 years from Australia and the United Kingdom. As well as the Barossa!

Ultra premium beds, high quality linens and numerous other little touches ensure Abbotsford's guests are well rested prior to enjoying the region's world class food and wine.

Guests enjoy sumptuous, regionally sourced breakfasts ( and dinners for groups of 10 or more by arrangement) in the majestic, guests-only dining room. Abbotsford's hosts can provide wines from their extensive, Barossa centric cellar and share their intimate knowledge and understanding of the Barossa region.

Abbotsford Country House is the perfect location for special occasions or that romantic night away (our first guest proposed to his girlfriend over the dinner table - she accepted!).

Abbotsford Country House continues to remain one of Australia's top 20 Fodor's Choice properties, the only fodor’s Choice property in the Barossa and has an AAA Tourism rating of 4.5 stars.


We look forward to welcoming you to Abbotsford and the Barossa,



Your hosts
