Beautiful property in a really lovely part of the UK, tranquil, peaceful with entertainment just across the water in Dartmouth - planning next years trip already! Mrs Katie Checkley - 26th July 2019
The Edge is spectacular - for views, sunshine, relaxation and unique ferry access to a host of splendid Restaurants. This is definitely a "do nothing" property. Better for 2 persons than 4 as the kitchen area is a bit tight and the seating is a bit restricted. However, we have managed to put up with the views, the sunshine, the relaxation and the Restaurants for 4 years and have booked for a 5th visit in 2020. The Blueriver staff in the Dartmouth office are extremely helpful and know their business well. We park the car on arrival and just walk, go by bus, train or boat - its the best way to explore !Kay Birch - 20th July 2019
All was great, Would love to book again. Please pass on our thanks to the owners and thank you to all staff at Blueriver cottages . John and Marie Mr John Sweeting - 4th September 2018
location was excellent, as it was so hot during my stay I spent most of my time on this holiday to just watch all the activity on the river, busy all day. on mos days(I have visited devon so many times I did know the whole area so this was good for me to be lazy. You do have to negotiate the lane to the property my car just made it but it stops traffic going by. So easy to pop over to dartmouth on the ferry. Lovely south facing balconies. Mrs Daphne James - 1st July 2018
It is the third time we have stayed in the property and we love the location and layoutMrs Tricia Rigby - 3rd January 2018
Unbelievable location which has spoilt us for the future!
The Edge has all we needed, great that it has outside space. Driving down the narrow lane is a bit challenging in a wide bodied Porsche so we left it up the hill. The 122 steps woke us up when we needed it! The balcony gave great, sheltered but sunny space for the 2 of us and the view from the bed is fantastic too (I am gazing as I type this). The aspect cannot be over emphasised, we got sun from 8am till 8pm and then only partially shaded by next door's tree (nice neighbours upstream btw). I admit we felt bit smug as we looked over the water to Dartmouth and saw the multi million pound waterside property in the shade all day. Love the contemporary design of the space. Suffice to say we would book again in an instant!Simon from Hitchin - 12th August 2016
We had a great holiday and enjoyed our stay although the weather was changeable but come rain or shine the view from the Windows was ever changing we never tired of the fantastic views .Just a small niggle or two a few cobwebs around inside and the Windows could appreciate a clean.Dave and Wendy Lincolnshire - 8th July 2016
I would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay at The Edge and that we may well return in the future. We loved the views, who couldn't, the high standard of finish, the train and ferry. The weather was fab too. Thank you for your patience with my questions. We did get our 4x4 down the road, although there are a few scratches. My parents-in-laws were impressed with their improved fitness over their stay due to hill walking. Anyway thanks again, for a superb property. I have already given the details to a friend.Palmer Family - 13th May 2016
Great location for holiday without a car
Great views over estuary and out to sea (view from upstairs bed would be even better if bush trimmed). We think brochure and website should warn that access is via an exceptionally narrow road between high walls. It was just wide enough for our small car. We did not need car after arrival as there are good bus, train and ferry services and it is a great location for walking.Ann from Sussex - 12th March 2016
A week enjoying fabulous views
A fabulous location. Extremely comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms, beautiful outdoor space to enjoy. Light, quiet. We loved it very much and would stay again. But..... Kitchen missing quite a few essentials. Omelette pan, salad bowl, fruit bowl, egg cups, nicer coffee mugs. Definitely needs sun LOUNGERS for the terrace, even basic folding ones that could be stored in the garage. I think more emphasis required re the incredibly narrow road! We were OK in a Golf, but anything an inch bigger would not get through!Judy & Will from Wilmslow. - 19th September 2015
Beautiful location, tranquil and private and plenty to watch on the water from the terrace
Furnishings and fixtures of a high standard but lacking some essentials. Difficulty manoevering car into garage due to other parked cars in the neighbourhood. Lighting poor in kitchen. All 3 basins do not have plugs. Very wasteful of water. Lovely seating area outside which gets plenty of sunshine.Debbie from Fort William - 17th July 2015
