Tea, coffee, sugar and milk are provided. Fluffy large towels and all linen provided.

The space
The shower is wonderful, we are told by guests that this is so important, especially when working, a great start to the day. (Please note it sleeps 2 comfortably and has an additional fold out bed in lounge) The lovely apartment has all mod coms with a flat screen TV, DVD player with a selection of DVD's and a Bose bluetooth sound system. It's a cosy homely apartment.
A short walk that takes you past the beautiful river of Galafoot a 10-15 minute walk from the town centre including the new railway station (the train takes 50 minutes to the centre of Edinburgh). Driving from the apartment to Galashiels town centre takes 3-5 minutes.

Galashiels is one of the larger towns in the Borders and we are situated a short drive (3 minutes) or a walk (15 minutes) from the town centre and rail and bus links. Galashiels has many shops, we love to shop local but there is a 24 hour Asda and Tesco. There are great pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes. And for entertainment there are parks, a cinema and a swimming pool. Other town and villages nearby are Melrose, Selkirk, Jedburgh, Kelso, Hawick and Peebles. There is a train to Edinburgh which takes 50 minutes. Places of interest include the Melrose Abbey, Abbotsford House (home of Sir Walter Scott) and much more. Surrounding towns are Melrose, Jedburgh, Hawick and Kelso. There are also many wonderful scenic walks in the Scottish Borders and our town is renowned for fishing, rubgy and biking trails.

*please note this accommodation is in a residential area with neighbours, we have been made aware there can be noise from other properties and the occasional dog barking from adjoining properties. If you are looking for a guaranteed peaceful we have a beautiful cottage we also rent listed on Air B&B

I am a freelance graphic designer, a mother, cleaner, cook and loves to travel. I have lived in the Scottish Border for 15 years and love it, there's so much to see and do here. I love being just an hour away from Edinburgh, a quick journey on the train. I have a long bucket list I'm trying to get through but travelling and learning about other cultures is a passion of mine.
