The cottage was comfortable and the 'ship watching' views superb. It is ideal for families with small children as a safe sandy beach lies at the bottom of the garden, accessed by a very short walk via the footpath. However, for us as an older couple, it would almost certainly be rather noisy during the summer months, but we would certainly like to return out of season, as it is cosy and warm with full central heating etc.

The availability of parking spaces (max 8) could be a problem, as at present during our visit they were used by both visitors to the local beach (despite of being a private road) and at times overflow for builders vans. The public car park is a fair distance away and quite expensive. However if out for the day, spaces become more available in the evening. We often just left the car and enjoyed the local walks or caught the excellent IOW bus service.

Cosy and warm for a winter stay. To be so close to the sea is the real advantage to this cottage. Hearing the sea whilst going to sleep will stay with me as a very happy memory

Excellent sea views from dining area. Relaxing wave sound in the bedroom.
Quiet residential area and short walk to the beach and village shops. We will return in the near future and hope this cottage remains available for many years to come.

Cottage with everything you need with fantastic views.

We refer to 1 Thatched Cottage as our ‘happy place’ and would definitely book again. We loved the location right by the beautiful beaches, loved watching the ships and the coastal walk from Seaview to Ryde. The cottage was absolutely perfect for our break.

Be up front with holiday makers and let them know clearly what to expect while building works are being carried out in the lane. (Possible blocked in etc) It was a complete surprise to us as we arrived.

Thank you for your online review. We are very sorry that there were roadworks being carried out in the lane. Unfortunately, we were unaware that this would be happening; ordinarily when we are given information that such works are being carried out we always inform our guests. We so hope to welcome you back to the Isle of Wight and should you need any assistance please do not hesitate to get in touch. Sarah, Customer Support

I was particularly impressed with collection of keys and good communication with the staff in Seaview. The cottage was marvellous. Thank you!

This is our holiday home from home, we feel very comfortable here and will return.... again and again x

This is a beautiful cottage in an amazing bay with easy access to the beach. It has most things you need and is very comfortable and homely. We are a family of two adults and two small children and it suited us well with the safe front and back outside spaces. Parking was a little tricky as it’s first come first served on the road and we had to walk with our luggage. We were able to get a space though and moved the car closer. Seaview is a lovely welcoming village with everything you need only 5 mins away. Lily’s is a lovely coffee shop and the hotel does great food too. The beach/bay is stunning and we spent everyday (weather was good!) digging in the sand and swimming in the sea. We’ve booked to go twice again next year!

Ideally situated for the beach. Excellent views of the Solent from the lounge as well as a constant stream of shipping to look at. Well equipped comfortable and warm, would not hesitate to return to this homely cottage.

A really super cottage that suited us and our young family well. Such a wonderful location and views. Easy access to the beach along a short footpath/some steps was wonderful to have. We would stay again.

Our stay at the cottage was fantastic, very comfortable, great location & views were amazing. Deffinatly would stay there again.

A very comfortable cottage in a fabulous location. A steep little footpath down to the entrance though and you have to park your vehicle at the top.

We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed a comfortable stay at 1 Thatched Cottage. The car parking area is a short distance away on a private road and we hope you would agree that the view that awaits you at the end of the pathway to the house, is worth the walk. Alison, Customer Support.

Comfy cottage with interesting sea view and suntrap garden.

Such a comfortable, homely cottage. The location is so peaceful and a stay in this cottage would relax anyone I imagine. The sunrise views are beautiful.

We like booking with classic cottages, as they are friendly and it is quick and easy. We would book with them again.

Just perfect!

The location was fantastic - it was incredibly peaceful: the only sound we could hear at night was the sea! The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable.A beautiful home-from-home.

It is an idyllic cottage set in peaceful location.

Be aware that it's a semi detached cottage and it may be noisy at night. I would have given it a 5 star rating if it hadn't been for that problem.

Thanks for your review of 1 Thatched Cottage. The cottage is one side of a larger building (do check out the photos we show) in a little residential area. Although we've not had issues with the noise previously, we're really sorry if you were disappointed. Alison, Customer Support

A well maintained and beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting.

We have been friends for over 30 years and this was our first holiday together, we had such a lovely time, the outlook from the cottage is stunning and you can walk miles along the beautiful beaches at low tide, our children are all grown up but for a family with young children you could spend almost the whole holiday on the lovely safe beach

I highly recommend Classic Cottages. The team are all so helpful and the cottage we booked idyllic, we will be returning again (and again)

Excellent location on the beach front. Felt like home from home with the cottages furniture and excellent kitchen. Has everything you need for a good holiday.

A lovely well equipped, cosy and comfortable cottage. Even in February the beach side location was super as it was so handy to get onto the beach for a walk. Would we stay again - yes is the answer

A lovely cottage, comfortable, and very well equipped. Had a great holiday.

Outstanding location with handsome views and close to the beach.

The views when you got up in the morning are stunning and a 30 second walk round the corner and your on the beach then a quick walk to the rocks and a beach that could be in the Caribbean comes into view is breathtaking.

My husband and I stayed 1 - 7 July 2017, in this beautiful cottage. The decking area and the views out to sea were superb. The cottage was very clean, equipped with everything you could possibly need and most of all it was really homely. We did not want to go home.

A couple of seconds walk and you were on the beautiful beach. There was always car parking space a very short walk from the cottage.

A lovely cottage, on a beautiful island, with excellent weather in the United Kingdom - what more could anyone want!

I would certainly recommend this cottage.

Wonderful cottage in lovely location, with excellent sea views and easy access to beach. For the less able, access from and to car parking area may prove a little difficult.

We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay at 1 Thatched Cottage. The car parking area is a short distance away on a private road, and then a stroll along the pedestrian pathway to the cottage puts you in the best location for those wonderful sea views! Tanya, Customer Support
