Please be aware that I only have one room to let out so you are the only guests. A stringent hygiene regime is in place although this is always the case so there is no risk of contagion from other guests.

Evening meals are an additional $35 to $55 per person.
Please note that 24 hours notice is required for evening meals.
For examples from the menu, see the Farmstay Menu page.

Home baking and a selection of teas and coffee are always available.


I am happy to collect visitors who arrive from Wellington by train but you really need your own transport to take advantage of the many activities available in the Wairarapa region. The wild and wonderful Wairarapa coast is 65 Kms from Gallin Farm – about 1 hour’s drive.


Gallin Farmstay is listed on several international booking websites that allow instant booking so please phone or email to check availability on your chosen dates.
