About Galashiels

Galashiels, in the serene and safe Critchley Common, Dullstroom has been beautifully and tastefully refurbished and has been graded Four star by the South African Tourism Board.Located in the picturesque village community, we welcome you to a comfortable country cottage atmosphere. We trust you will find the brick and stone built cottage a haven for you to unwind, whether it be your destination or just a stop along the dusty road and gateway to the Low Veldt and the Kruger National Park beyond. We will always strive to exceed your expectations and make your stay memorable for all the right reasons. Please bear in mind that not only is the community available for guests but also residents in our community. The water here is from the mountain streams and is some of the purest you will find in the area. It is totally safe to drink and very refreshing. The house, rented as an exclusive use facility, has 2 bedrooms downstairs, and 2 upstairs, sharing one full downstairs bathroom, and a bathroom with bath and enclosed shower upstairs. A cosy lounge with fire place and a modern kitchen that is well supplied with everyday needs as well as little extras, should you feel inclined to prepare a special meal or bake a cake. The outside garden offers an inside/outside experience in the sheltered braai/dining area. Serviced daily by Annah, you don’t have to worry about dishes, cleaning the fireplace, or any other irritating household chores. Added to the comfort of the house, your stay in Critchley Common will be peaceful, with gorgeous communal gardens, a duck pond replete with variety of water birds. The community is secure, with gates and remote controlled access so you can leave your car and walk into the Village, to the shops and restaurants on the main road, just a block away. Dullstroom has many great attractions in and around the area, including the Dullstroom Nature Reserve and numerous activities such as fly fishing, hiking and golf.Galashiels is a no smoking house.
