“The house was everything we could have wanted.”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed a week at Waters Edge and it was a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. The house is located right next to the river so you have lovely views out most of the windows. It is also a short walk to High Street and the shops. The house is really well equipped and we were able to cook and host a dinner for our extended family. The dining room was a perfect size and easily fit 8 people around the table. The lounge room is really cosy and inviting and the beds were very comfy. The Barstows answered all our questions promptly and were very helpful. I would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay in Tonbridge.

Liked best: The house has such a lovely feel to it.
Liked least: Arriving to a cold house and having to wait to the morning to work out how the central heating works. But this was a very minor issue.

“Lovely house in a great location”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My extended family (4 adults and 3 children) had a lovely time at the house, which was very clean and furnished nicely. In fact, we were sad to go home! The kitchen was well stocked with essentials and a great size for cooking family meals. Big supermarket a short walk away, as was the train station, castle, and anything else you might want to do in town. Lovely location on the river, which is not so great if you have a toddler who likes to run off at every opportunity I suppose, also lots of stairs as it's a townhouse, but we didn't find it to be a problem. Owner was friendly and quick to answer any questions we had. Thanks!

“"Home from Home"”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed at Water's Edge for two weeks while our own home in Tonbridge was being painted. It was ideal for us as we could literally move in with our suitcase and had everything at our finger tips. The house is very well stocked (more than any other holiday home I've stayed in) with a full kitchen where you could prepare any meal. It's a lovely location by the water and very peaceful. I'd highly recommend for anyone looking for a base while holidaying in Kent.

“A beautiful home and excellent located holiday destination”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were so happy to reach this well presented, clean holiday rental. Unlike many rentals, this house has a feeling of homeliness that in my travel experience is unusual. There are many decorative touches and additions that make you feel very comfortable quickly (e.g. cookery books, sewing kit, candles). The kitchen is well stocked with quality pots and pans, utensils and cutlery, and thoughtful extras like cling film and dishwasher tablets. Small things that make the first few days easy (we came from Australia and stayed for 1 month). We were happy with the location and often left the car parked in the space and used the train to go to Tunbridge Wells or London. It was peaceful by the river watching the swans and quiet baring in mind the town centre is just a few minutes walk away.
