Great location

The location is wonderful, so very peaceful, the accommodation is well equipped and parking is easy. Just needs a bit of investment from the owner for better beds, as the mattresses were uncomfortable for us.

The staff at classic cottages were very helpful and responsive. It’s the 3rd booking I’ve made through them and will definitely use them again, thank you.

This is a lovely, cosy cottage with everything you need for a week on the Island. It was ideal for us as we have family in Ryde and meant we were close by but with our own space. Great proximity to the beach for a fresh walk in the morning with the dog, and for exploring everything the IoW has to offer. Very clean and tidy, with the added touch of supplying some necessities like dish soap and clean cloths. Would highly recommend to friends and family, and we look forward to coming back soon!

Great location for the beach, walking and cycling.

Good location where children can play very safely and access to Seaview beach is excellent.

Great quiet location adjacent to a beautiful natural beach.

The cottage was set on a nice quite relaxing park. With great see views. Very nice to have your own outside decking and table and chairs. The cottage itself is very well equipped. And comfy.

This property is in a great location, literally minutes from the sea. We loved Seaview and the walks along the coast in both directions. We were less happy with the property itself, as we had significant issues with maintenance and housekeeping. However, Classic Cottages and the owner were commendably quick to respond to our concerns, so hopefully these issues will be dealt with very soon. A further improvement would be investment in a new bed, as we didn't find the existing bed particularly comfortable. The rating is based on the assumption that the issues we experienced will be resolved.

Simply love it here. Everything I want in a holiday for me and my dog.

Cockelshells is a very comfortable and cozy cottage, in a very good location, being close to the beach and within walking distance of Ryde and Seaview. We had a very good week's holiday and would be happy to come again in the future.

Great for the beach and a place to rest your head. Ideal for young children.

Fabulous week - great position. Coming back next year!

The cottage is in a great location for the beach and there are lovely walks along the coast.

Great location and very well presented property. Ideal for families.

We visited Cockleshells during the October half term with two small children (aged 5 and 2) and all of us absolutely loved it. The property itself has been beautifully decorated and is very comfortable. The location is fantastic and provided a great base for a variety of day trips (including Osborne House, Carisbrooke Castle, Brading Roman Villa, Sandown and Shanklin). As it's right on the coast, we also enjoyed the local beach and beautiful sunsets. Exactly as described - if anything it exceeded our expectations and we would love to come back!
