Peace, quiet and lots of fresh air
I stayed for a week with my daughter's dog and a couple of friends joined me halfway through the holiday. The cottage is beautifully kept and feels really homely. It is perfect for dog walking just walking from the back garden down a grass track to the estuary. Amazing views from the house across the estuary. Nigel and Judy are such lovely people they make you feel welcome and valued. The bottle of wine and yummy homemade short bread was very much appreciated. You will need a car to explore the area or reach the shops and eating places. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals if you want to eat in. We visited Saundersford which is a pretty seaside town and tried Bubble Tea for the first time at Tea Time. There is also a beach that dogs can use which my dog thoroughly enjoyed. On another day we visited Narberth where they were having their annual food festival which was packed with produce made in the county. I have bought my Christmas alcohol. I would also recommend a small shop selling recycled/repurposed items. I bought a unique bracelet made from some sugar tongs which I love along with a bracelet and earrings made from recycled fishing nets. It was lovely to come back, after a day exploring, to the peace and tranquility of the Waters Edge. The last two evenings we enjoyed relaxing in front of the wood burner. I would totally recommend this lovely hideaway.

Enjoyable holiday
We have just enjoyed our third visit in three years here and we will definitely be going again. The cottage is well equipped and the views are spectacular. The little treats from the hosts go down well and they are always available to answer any query you have. The cottage is ideal situated for you to visit some stunning beaches but also close enough to the towns for the essentials or just for browsing round. We can't wait to go again

Just perfect
Waters edge is a beautiful cottage, plenty of space and very relaxing. Freda the dog loved her walks by the estuary. The views are stunning. The cottage had absolutely everything you needed, the hosts could not have been any more welcoming and lovely. Just perfect. You do need a car to get about Narberth is lovely town so is Tenby and the beaches amazing. Thank you so much for an amazing holiday.

Beautiful Views and Lovely Cottage with Garden
A fantastic cottage and beautiful garden with everything you need to hand. The views are stunning and you can watch the sunset each evening. There are lots of wild birds to watch whilst having your morning coffee. A wide grass path takes you to some iron steps down to the shoreline. The garden is not fully dog proof so we kept our dog on a long lead - she is used to this so was not an issue at all. Broadhaven beach (one of our favourites) is not far. A trip there and a walk around Bosherton ponds (2 miles) is recommended. Tenby is also fairly near and the town is lovely to visit plus lovely beaches too. The local town Narbeth is also worth visiting. The owners are a really lovely couple and are very helpful. The homemade shortbread and bottle of wine upon arrival were very welcome. We are likely to return to this cottage as it really was superb. Please book direct with the owners if you decide to try it.

Many thanks for giving Waters Edge such a smashing review. and for letting us know we were short of a hanger in the bathroom as well as the garden needing attention for dog proofing. Much appreciated . All sorted out.

5 stars always shining at Waters Edge
Have stayed here many times now. Consistently immaculate, well equipped and comfortable. The owners always provide a very warm and generous welcome to this lovely cottage. The garden is great for children or pets and lovely walks straight from the door. Fabulous river estuary views and the peace and tranquility make it hard to leave but if you can tear yourself away there are many beautiful beaches and coastal walks within east reach. It’s a wonderful spot to return to after a day exploring. I can’t wait to get back there.

Perfect spot
We have just enjoyed our 2nd visit to this cottage. It has everything in it that you could possibly need. The hosts leave a wonderful welcome package for you to enjoy. The garden is very secure for dogs and children alike and even has its own access to the water - very handy for walking the dog. You can spend hours just looking at the view. The cottage is within easy travelling distance to the seaside resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot, with the town of Narbeth close by for shopping. We can't wait to return next year.

Perfect !
Another wonderful stay at Water’s Edge - we love it here. The hosts, Nigel and Judy are friendly, helpful, and with an eye for detail. The house is spotless, they really have thought of everything. We love the generous ‘welcome provisions’, the amazing views, especially the sunsets, the peace and quiet, the comfortable furnishings. The perfect place for a family holiday. Highly recommended!

Impossible not to relax
A beautiful location, a short stroll down to the estuary. Open fields and…..silence. The house is well equipped and has some quirky architectural features that add loads of character. More books to hand than our local library and decent WiFi ( rare when you’re out in the countryside). Very comfy beds. Just be aware that this is a barn conversion so the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom can cause some ducking and swerving if you’re a six footer. And finally…your hosts Nigel and Judy are lovely and are prone to leaving little gifts such as honey and eggs on the garden table to surprise you when you get up. We’ll be back!
