About our home

We have moved to Central Otago from Tai Tapu. We have bought a beautiful farmhouse in the rugged climes of this picturesque part of New Zealand. We are located up a gravel road, 20 mins from the service town of Alexandra, We have redecorated the house from top to bottom, inside, and now outside. The bedrooms upstairs are beautiful, sunny and warm. A sleep out next to the house also comfortable. There is an option to light a rayburn oven in the kitchen, or use the electric, depending if you want to immerse yourself in the 'Country Life' A large log burner is in the lounge, to light at the end of the day, and relax in it's warmth. The kitchen is functional, light and lovely to sit and look down the valley while have a meal. There is a separate dining room. A large verandah wraps around the house giving a sense of extra space.

Where is it?


Galloway is a small rural community, 10 mins outside Alexandra, in Central Otago.Our farmhouse is 10 mins up a gravel road from Galloway, tucked into a small, lush micro climated valley, with an orchard, ducks, chooks, turkeys and merino sheep. We are located on the edge of the Lord of the Rings location, high in the rugged central landscape that is so typical of the region. We have the Central Otago Rail trail going through Galloway, we are 1 1/2 hours from the famous adventure town of Queenstown, 1 1/2 hours from Wanaka and Arrowtown is an hour away, so lots of day trips on offer. Walking and biking are also available with a strong following in the arts abounding in the area.
However if it is peace and tranquillity that you crave this is the stop for you. Our nearest neighbour is 5 kms down the road. and would be available if you needed help of any sort.
