A lovely large home with all the facilities available, eg. kitchen, games, walks etc. Close to all major attractions. Ideal for large family or small groups. Lovely, restful, peaceful time.
Ten out of ten for facilities, service, and value for money. We loved the relaxing atmosphere in the house with all its provisions. It’s perfect!
We have beds for 12 (5 separate rooms with additional sleeping in the games room). Full details of sleeping options are here. It’s a big, private homestead with plenty of space.
We appreciated the friendly welcome and the games room was great. The spaciousness of the house and 3 bathrooms were excellent for 12 guests.
The best part of our stay was being with family in an environment that was almost like being at home. We loved the fireplace and sitting around and feeling relaxed. I can’t think of anything that could have made it better.

Here’s what some of our previous guests had to say:
Your house is amazing and we had a fantastic time. I even had some spare to time to complete a puzzle! The best part of our stay was the way we were greeted on arrival and the facilities.
Galwiji Homestead was very appropriate for our big group, comfortable, warm and most of all, ‘farmlike’. The homestead facilities and service in particular were great.
10 out of 10 for the overall experience. The best part was having games and walks to entertain everyone.
I stayed at Galwiji homestead on two different occasions within a gap of one week. I can call this home away from home. So serene and calm, so neat and well maintained. I appreciate their care for fine details-be it in the kitchen, the beds, the baths or the fire place. It’s a perfect holiday homestead to relax and regain your energy. Go for it!
