    Well equipped and comfortable and in an excellent location for the centre of York. Ideal for 2 people but a little cramped for 4. Highly recommended.

    This was our second visit to Water’s Edge, and it was just as good as the first. The cottage is tastefully furnished and very warm and comfortable. It is spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The little garden area overlooking the River Foss is delightful. It’ s own parking space is a huge bonus. The cottage is an easy 10 minute walk into the city centre, so no need to try and park in the city. We hope to return next year.

    I have been visiting Waters Edge once or twice a year for several years. It is a lovely cottage - clean, comfortable and well-equipped. It is in a perfect location in a quiet cul-de-sac, yet only a few minutes walk from the centre of York and all its amenities. No need to use a car. The little courtyard garden is a real bonus - a lovely place to sit and have breakfast or an afternoon drink.

    A cosy, well equipped and spotlessly clean house. Convenient for the city so the car can be left behind (in the reserved parking space).

    a lovely terraced house, right on the river side, with views over to Cliffords Tower. Easy access (once you navigate the one way system and remember it!) and although a bit of a walk to the edge of the wall it`s quite easy. the chairs/beds were great, pleny room for the 3 of us. Kitchnen well equiped, all in all, a very easyhouse to fall into for a short break, or longer.

    Have stayed in this property numerous times over the years and return as it's very convenient for York city centre but in a quiet location. Always spotlessly clean and the owners leave a bottle of wine and chocolates for returning clients. Comfortable accommodation for either a short break or longer. Highly recommended.

    The ideal spot for a holiday in York. Waters Edge is in a quiet riverside location, but only a few minutes' walk from the city centre and all its amenities. The cottage is clean, cosy and well equipped. I have now stayed there many times and hope to visit again before too long.
