The Edge was fantastic for us and would definitely come back. We are a couple with a 4 year old child. The access to the property down Brecon Road is very tight and the garage will only fit a smallish family car, we had a Mini Countryman Mk1 which was OK, anything bigger wouldn't fit the garage although wider, low cars could negotiate the access road they may be too long for the garage. Parking is available at the marina for £8 per 24 hours so factor this in. The property itself is fantastic, handy for the ferry and the station and lovely views over the river up to the castle. It faces south west so gets plenty of sun. The bedrooms and bathrooms are a great size and well fitted out. The kitchen and dining area do the job but above all it's the terraces/balconies that make the property....the views are amazing and ever changing. We couldn't fault the cleanliness. The only issue we had was the button that closes the garage door which is on the inside would not work when you leant in after extracting your car as the sensor wouldn't allow it to come down despite what is said in the property instructions. Therefore we had to close the door from the inside, walk downstairs and through the property and the gate, onto the road and up to the car - luckily the road is very quiet so blocking it for 2 minutes wasn't a problem.

Mr S,

Amazing location, lovely river and sea views.

Ms S,

Everything about The Edge is superb, especially the mesmerizing view from the glass balconies! There is always something happening on the water to catch your eye as the fishing boats, gigs and visiting yachts glide past. Being on the Kingswear side of the river offers the best of both worlds, with easy access to Dartmouth via the passenger or car ferry just a step away plus glorious sunshine from day break right up until sunset. The property itself is smart, clean and well thought out, with lots of storage space and little touches of luxury wherever you look. You can get lost in Dartmouth all day, wandering around the picturesque streets and garden, browsing in the independent shops or watching the buzz of activity on the water from the long, open embankment. The riverboats and steam engine were not running during our stay because of Covid restrictions, so we embarked instead on some incredible coastal path walks around Dartmouth with glorious panoramic views of the rugged coastline. But we also couldn't resist spending a whole day at The Edge just relaxing, having lunch on the balcony and enjoying everything it has to offer. We loved our time there and have already booked again!

Mrs T,
