“A 12 out of 10 place!”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The house is centrally located, but secluded and quiet, River's edge is a few meters from the garden-side door. The house has a fully equipped and beautiful spacious kitchen on the first (ground) floor next to the dining room (overlooking the river). The second floor has a comfortable living room with TV and an AppleTV box for sharing the photos of the day via Airplay. Here is also a large bedroom. Third floor has a another large bedroom plus a smaller bedroom with double berths. Toilets on all floors and two baths for the bedrooms. Alle rooms are modern with light colors in a fine palette. And everything is impeccably clean.
During our stay we congratulated ourselves again and again for having been lucky enough to find this place. We consider it perfect for our needs for the week-long stay in Tonbridge. Absolutely recommendable by two Norwegian couples!

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We rented Waters Edge for 8 weeks whilst having insurance work carried out on our house. The accommodation is well maintained and the little things we did report, were not too much trouble for the owners to sort out quickly.
The accommodation is split across three floors and this really did not make a difference. It is located near Tonbridge Lock and in summer this must be lovely. The location is as best as you can get, with Waitrose just round the corner and everything in easy walking distance.

Do not hesitate in booking the accommodation as quite rightly, it books fast.

“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 19 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.
