Kim, I think your kids are so lucky to have a mum who, as a part of their home-schooling, brings them out to a farm for some 'hands-on' tuition. We are looking forward to your next stay very much. Kind regards. Malcolm Pryor, Operations Manager, Galwiji Homestead.

Clean, well-appointed, lovely views - peaceful. Love the touches like a fire pit outside, with chairs - good seating under cover on the verandah. This is not an "ultra-modern" house - it has more the feel of a family home. Would be ideal for 3 - 4 families. I didn't actually stay this time - just viewed for future booking,...

It was a pleasure to have you visit Loreen. Pity we weren't quite big enough for your gathering this time, but we would certainly welcome you in the future. Regards. Malcolm Pryor, Operations Manager, Galwiji Homestead.
