  • 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!

  • Everything about this property and the owners is fantastic! The house was a great set up with everything we needed and more. The kids loved being outside on the play equipment or in the large games room. The beds were really comfortable. We loved the peacefull atmosphere.

  • Oh! The serenity of the homestead. The sheep provided entertainment. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens, and the private and relaxed setting.

  • 10 out of 10 for everything. We most enjoyed drinking lovely red wine next to the fires – both outside and inside. We wouldn’t change a thing.

  • 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.

  • Had a great time. Loved the house and the property and the visit to the dairy farm was a great success. We were made to feel most welcome. My Youth Group have asked if we can visit again next year as they loved it so much.
