Bedroom 1 has a King Size bed. Bedroom 2 is set up as a twin with two 3 foot single beds. Bedroom 3 has a standard Double. This is the smallest of the 3 bedrooms but enjoys the best river views. Therefore, we have chosen to place a double bed in this room although one side of the bed is next to a wall.
Children over 5 are welcome but parents should be aware that the garden has direct access, through a gate, to the river.
The Cornwall region
With 269 miles of glorious coastline and numerous tourist attractions, including the world famous Eden Project, Cornwall has something for everybody.
A perfect location for sailing and other watersports. Yachts and equipment can be hired from Falmouth Marina, 100 yards from the property. The river provides the setting for many sailing races including working boats, international events and classic yachts.
Falmouth town centre has numerous restaurants, including the new Rick Stein fish restaurant, galleries and boutique shops and national chains such as Marks and Spencer. Activities include the Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle, pleasure boat trips, and 4 large family beaches, golf club and ten pin bowling.
Various events such as Aberfest in April, Henri Lloyd Falmouth Regatta week in August, Oyster Festival in October reflect the all year round appeal of the resort.

"Home from home, in a wonderful location"
This is our second stay at this property. We enjoyed it so much the first time that we wanted to repeat the experience. This stay was even better as the property had been subject to redecoration in th… More
Many thanks for your kind review.
Thankfully the construction work down the street is winding down and finally coming to an end in a couple of weeks.
I think you make a good point about the usefulness of having a tumble dryer - I'm going to see if we can replace the washer with a washer-dryer.

"Lovely house; great place"
We had an excellent time. Even the rain was exciting. The house is great, very comfortable and with all sorts of mod cons. Views of the river, the boats and the birds are enough to keep us in the gorg… More

It is strange that you have taken over a year to review your stay. It is also odd that you claim it smelled of damp and then say you wanted to return.
You made your initial threat to write a bad review in September 2013. I said I would investigate your claims. I stayed at the property for a week after your visit and found no evidence of a damp smell. I had two experts visit the property who confirmed that there was no problem with damp. There was some discoloration at the edge of a cream carpet. This was not caused by damp, and did not smell, but was historic staining where it had not been hoovered properly in the past – I have since replaced all the carpets in the property. No other guests and no other reviews, in 5 years, have reported a damp smell. If it “absolutely stank” as you suggest, they surely would have done.
The property has three double bedrooms. You could have used one of the other two bedrooms if it was affecting your wife, as you claim.
I conveyed to you that I had not found any problems at the property. You have continued to threaten me with a bad review and demand a free holiday. It is important to me that everyone enjoys their holiday at Waters Edge and the reports in our Guest Book, other published reviews and the number of repeat bookings suggest that they do. Last year, I provided a free week for a couple where one person fell ill during their stay and previously for another family where there had been some noisy works at a neighbouring property. However, I refuse to be bullied by the threat of a bad review about a non-existent problem.

"This property has it all!"
We felt fooled when entering the house because this house was much nicer Than in the Photos. No one mentioned that there was a huge bathtub that fitted our three children, or that there was a fishing … More

"Beautiful house and location!"
This is a lovely holiday let-home from home really with everything and more needed for a relaxing holiday.
The house is spotlessly clean and comfortable and the views are truly spectacular.Sitting in the lovely spinning chairs by the window watching the boats come and go is just so relaxing.
The house is a good 15 min brisk walk into the centre of Falmouth and was just a bit too far for my elderly parents but ok for the slightly fitter!
The garden at the property is large and well tended-perfect for an evening game of boules(supplied) and a glass of wine and if you are lucky watching one of the beautiful sunsets.
The 3 bedrooms are all well decorated - the only negative being that the low bed in the 3rd bedroom is not that comfy and we didnt sleep as well as we hoped.
On the whole though we were delighted with the house and would certainly recommend it to family and friends.
My parents aged 84 and 80 just loved it and seeing them relaxed and enjoying themselves was a pleasure.

"Excellent property with Great Views"
This property is excellent, all you need and more. There is all the kitchen equipment you need and plenty to keep the kids busy with a PS3, Wii and computer. The views over the marina are excellent. Just a short walk into town where there are numerous pubs and shops, The local Marina bar and restaurant is very welcoming and friendly. Will definately stay there again.

(One week family holiday for Dad, Mum and 4 children age 5 to 14.) Waters Edge is in a beautiful location in Falmouth and as the name suggests, it is indeed, RIGHT on the water's edge looking over Falmouth Marina. The property has a large, well-kept, sloping garden and right at the bottom a little gate leads to a private jetty which the children thought was fantastic and kept going down to see where the tide was and what creatures could be discovered etc. The property was very well equipped and the beds were comfortable and we all slept very well. The lounge area has a HUGE bay window where you can sit and enjoy the view of the Marina (and the view really is as good as it looks in the photographs)! The lounge furniture is very comfortable and there is everything you would need technology wise. The kitchen and dining area are lovely too with a real marine feeling throughout. We walked into the centre of Falmouth on a few evenings and enjoyed the beaches at Swanpool and Maenporth where we hired a Kayak which the children really enjoyed! We went on a 2 hour boat trip along the coast line which was beautiful & visited Pendennis Castle which was very interesting with more breathtaking views of Cornwall. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Waters Edge and would love to return in the future.
