Thoroughly recommended. Suggest parking on the street
Mrs Dexter April 2023
What a super property in a wonderful location, close to Seaview village and only one street away from the beach. Perfect for a couple or small family, mini break out of season as I did or a long summer holiday. Comfy beds, great shower, nice and quiet.

The property was filed with a lot of quirky wooden objects, candel sticks & wooden ornaments. These collected dust and there was coffee table made from driftwood unfortunately this was too low and not straight so could not be used. The ensuite bedroom only had French doors and no windows that opened so was very hot. The ktchen was not equipped for 6, we had 3 teaspoons. The property requires maintenance as the main entrance doors were not secure as this was not a deadlock and the doors could easily have been pushed to break the lock. We also had an issue with the ensuite shower which flooded & had leaves & debris coming up following a heavy storm, this apparently was a known issue with the property. Having said the above negative comments, the property worked for us as there were 2 of us, but may not work for more than 2 visitors. The property was not completely cleaned before we went in, I had to clean 3 shelves in the fridge and found knives in a cupboard with residue of food, there were a lot of cobwebs from the wooden ornaments as mentioned before.

We are sorry that there were areas of Lawn End that were not quite right for you and so wish that we heard from you at the time to investigate and assist. We hope to welcome you to another Classic Cottage in the future and should you need any help to let us know. Sarah, Customer Support

Comfortable cottage in a lovely and quiet location, close the the beach and coastal path. Local amenities at hand - eating out and a couple of quaint shops. In our view, this is the best part of the island - lots of interesting places nearby to visit and stunning scenery. The property itself offers adequate facilities for self-catering as well as a peaceful garden for relaxing after a long day out and about. There are two main bedrooms and two bathrooms. The third bedroom is, as outlined on the rental website, really only for children as the stairs are very steep and narrow. Great place for two couples.

Lawn View was a perfect location for lovely beach walks. A couple of great pubs within walking distance too. You’ll need a car to get about, especially to the supermarket for groceries there’s only a very limited range in Seaview itself. Property worked for four adults. The living area is not huge so might be a struggle for more people. The heavy dinning table needs to be moved out to allow seating on both sides. This makes it more difficult to move around the room. Fine for us adults but might be more difficult for younger families. Would definitely recommend Classic Cottages. Easy to book, clear communication on access to property. Prompt response to questions or minor issues. Very professional service.

Lawn End is an excellent location for exploring Seaview and for travelling around the Island. The furnishings are unusual but tasteful and the accommodation is well equipped, with really nice touches that showed care had been taken by the owners to make visitors feel at home during their stay. The 2 bedrooms were ideal for 3 adults and there was plenty of space in the property for people to rest away from each other, or to socialise together. We would definitely stay at Lawn End again as it is comfortable, there is off-road parking, and it has all the amenities one would wish for in a seaside location.

We loved our stay at Lawn End, it was ideal for our short break on the Island and we would definitely return, hopefully in summer to take advantage of the outside deck. Great location in Seaview, we enjoyed an evening meal at the Seaview Hotel, their new chef certainly knows what he is doing and we recommend the seafood chowder and a chilled glass of white!
Mrs Daly June 2021
It is a very comfortable house and the garden is a sun trap. The location is amazing, only moments from the sea. The walks available from the house were a huge draw for us, into Ryde, and down the beach to St Helen's ( tide permitting of course ). The community shop was surprisingly well stocked. Overall and great week in wonderful Seaview.
Mrs Starodubova April 2021
Very cosy and warm cottage in a lovely village with seaside walk and nice cafe. Very friendly housekeepers made a nice surprise- birthday cupcakes and card. :)
Mrs Panni October 2020
Imaginative decor with very good use of living space.
Perfect for 4, tight for 6 in living area.
We very much enjoyed our stay in the house.
Mr Jones September 2020
Red squirrels in the garden, stone's throw from the sea, cosy and secure, space for our bikes, boats and car - all good. Seaview Hotel fab for supper, the Old Fort great for a drink whilst watching the watery busyness of the Solent. What's not to love!?
Mrs Carson July 2020
A lovely stay of two weeks. the house incredibly clean, comfortable with perfect contents. And garden with decking perfect. Wonderful position on Bluett Avenue, close to seafront and also shops etc. thank you.
Mr King June 2019
wonderful, clean, quirky ideal situated cottage within walking distance of sea front and very good places to eat. would recommend to friends and family
Mrs Savage May 2019
The Duver easily accessible from cottage to watch the 'cruise liners' going by. Good bus services. Seaview hotel - fantastic on all levels
Mr Cooper May 2019
The location was very good for visiting the island and its many attractions. Within walking distance or a within a short drive from Lawn End are several excellent restaurants. On arrival our first impressions were tempered by the poor cleanliness of the property.

Ms McVicars April 2019
We just wanted to say thank you to the owners for making our visit incredibly comfortable and relaxing . It is a stunning property and beautifully decorated. I felt like I was staying in a spa rather than a home! We would love to come back and stay another time . The owners deserve a lot of praise for the effort they’ve gone into making this property so stunning!
Mrs Chadwick April 2019
Lovely property - very tastefully decorated and comfortable throughout - in a perfect location in the village and near the sea
Ms Elkins July 2018
A lovely property in a super location but could do with a good clean throughout.
Mrs Carway July 2017
A lovely cottage with lots of room for everyone, even with 6 adults it didn't feel over full
Mrs Veasey July 2017
Our family have been visiting Seaview for generations, it is a wonderful part of the Island with beautiful beaches.
