  • Loved being able to sit and relax on the porch. We enjoyed watching the birds, and the sheep coming home.

  • 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!
