Bedroom 1 has a zip and link bed to provide either 2 3ft singles or a Superking double. Bedrooom 2 has a King Size double. 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 West Country 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.

"Perfect family holiday property - so well equipped!"
From booking to go on holiday to leaving the property for home we had a wonderful break and received excellent service from both admin & the property manager. Waters Edge is idyllic, a view you want t… 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.

"The Ideal Winter Short-Break; Cosey with wonderful views."
We took 'Waters Edge' for a short-break, before the busy Christmas holiday period.Knowing the seasonal Cornish weather could be varied we wanted a place where we could enjoy the view, even … More

"Fantastic views, great location nice bungalow - Were able to Kayak from the garden"
We rented Waters Edge for two weeks in the hope that our teenage family would find some time in their busy lives to come and stay with us.
This was a great location for that, with ample parking for the three cars that were there for some of the time.
Swanpool, Maenporth and the castles at Pendennis and St Mawes were popular. There was a guns event at Pendennis which was worth the extra entrance charge.
We brought Kayaks with us and had some nice trips around Falmouth harbour launching from the end of the garden - you get two hours each side of high tide. We also took them to Swanpool where you can launch at any time and planned to take them to Maenporth where it would also have been possible - but never got around to that.
We loved that we could walk into Falmouth most nights to use the varied restaurants there. The "Thai Orchid" and "Samphire" were particular favourites, but there were none that were really bad.
When left on our own, we used the bungalow as a base for walking some significant parts of the South West Coast Path, parking near to Helston Sainsbury's and using the busses to access various villages along the way.
We cannot fault Waters Edge for anything, the garden was excellent for barbeques and sunsets when the weather let us but the swivel seats in the lounge allowed nice views while reading a book and drinking wine - even when the weather didn't allow us outside.

"Lovely property nice and quiet"
The bungalow was ideal for my elderly parents apart from only having one bathroom with no seperate shower, and the one bedroom had a very low bed.
The lounge furniture was also very uncomfortable and we were not able to relax at the end of the day.
The position of the bungalow was excellent and overall we had a pleasant stay.
I would recommend for families and young couples because there was a lot of hi tech equipment such as a computer and printer and a playstation.
I'm pleased to hear that overall you had a pleasant stay at Waters Edge. It's disappointing that you found the lounge furniture uncomfortable as we have had many comments from other guests saying how much they have enjoyed sitting in the lounge, particularly in the swivel chairs, looking out over the river.

"A lovely home by the 'Waters Edge'"
We stayed at Waters Edge, myself my husband and our two mothers who are both elderly. The bungalow is in a lovely location with beautiful views across the estury (the moms really enjoyed the views from the two leather swivel chairs in the large bay window!). It is fully equipped with everything that you need for a perfect, comfortable holiday and everything was scrupulously clean and very well cared for. The garden is lovely, with a nice patio area reached by a few steps which were managed well by mom. A walk along the grass to the bottom of the garden and you come to a lovely area to sit , with access through a gate leading to a small slipway. The walk to town with its good selection of shops and facilities is approx 20mins steady walk. We found everyone we spoke to in town to be very friendly. Communication with the owner prior to the holiday was very efficient and he was happy to help with any enquiry that we had. We all agreed that we would have no hesitation staying at Waters Edge in the future

"A stunning home in a stunning location - ideal for exploring Falmouth and beyond!"
I can't wait to return to Waters Edge for another holiday. Relaxed, tranquil and perfectly situated for exploring Falmouth and the surrounding Cornish countryside and coast.
