Less than 15 minutes from Masterton, Gallin Farm offers a base for visiting vineyards, olive groves and local artists, riding the cycle trails or playing golf. There is also access for trout fishing in the Ruamahanga and Kopuaranga rivers and great photographic opportunities in the surrounding countryside and the Wairarapa coast (one hour to the landmark Castlepoint lighthouse). Mount Holdsworth is 20 minutes away – there is a choice of walks to do in the foothills of the Tararua ranges.
The Farmstay has now closed.
A gourmet breakfast includes homemade breads, muesli and jams, fresh farm eggs and locally produced bacon and sausages and is included in the tariff. Book a wonderful ‘away’ weekend and enjoy the delicious restaurant quality food on offer for dinner using fresh garden produce and locally sourced meat and fish. You need to stay 2 nights if you want to explore some of the delights that the Wairarapa offers.
Home baking and a selection of teas and coffee are always available.
