Waters Edge boasts a superb position in Stoke Gabriel, South Devon and it really lives up to its name with stunning vistas from most rooms looking down the beautiful Dartmouth estuary. A fantastic venue for a family holiday or couples looking for somewhere special, this tastefully converted former fisherman’s cottage provides a welcoming and comfortable retreat. Step out of the front door and there’s plenty to do, be it crabbing on the quayside with the kids, kayaking, riverside and forest walks, exploring the estuary in your own boat or visiting Bohemian Totnes and bustling Dartmouth. Back in the bright and sunny cottage the open plan living room with modern kitchen makes relaxing easy, complimented by three comfortable bedrooms with the master bedroom having a delightful view balcony overlooking the water. There are some great local walks, pubs, a waterside cafe, bistro and shop and the location of this pretty medieval village allows easy access for exploring the beaches and coastline of Devon or nearby Dartmoor.
Living room with glorious river views. Sofa and armchairs, wood burning stove, TV and DVD and French doors that open onto a delightful petit terrace overlooking the water.

I loved our stay - it was so very peaceful and quiet although there were things to do within the village on almost every day. The restaurant was near enough to be convenient but not intrusive. The rooms were sunny and light and the décor was light but not so neutral that you had to worry about the children making a mess.
This is a fantastic cottage offering everything you could possibly want. Aptly named Waters Edge, the cottage is set on the banks of the River Dart and the location couldn't have been more beautiful - with floor to ceiling windows in nearly every room we felt like we were floating on the water. As an old fisherman's cottage Waters Edge is over flowing with charm - it is tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable with an open plan, and spacious living area (and v well equipped kitchen!), peaceful bedrooms and spa-like bathrooms. The cottage is brilliantly located in Stoke Gabriel, a lovely, friendly little community in the heart of Devon. On the doorstep is the village shop, post office and a couple of local pubs, as well as the fantastic River Shack restaurant, which is a must. Drive just around the corner and you can take a boat trip down the River Dart, visit the beach at Slapton Sands, shop in Totnes and/or take the steam train along the coast from Kingswear to Paignton. Equally we often just sat outside the cottage enjoying the sun and quietly watching the world go byâ€¦it was absolute bliss! We had a great time in Stoke Gabriel and would definitely recommend Waters Edge to anyone!
