We loved Mallards so much - really comfortable, fantastic location and we're really hoping to come back next year!
Mrs Browne June 2023
The house is a great size and in a fantastic location. We had a fabulous holiday.
Mr Webster September 2022
Classic Cottages have been a great help over the past several years of booking holiday houses on the Isle of Wight. Thank you all for your kind assistance over the years and your continued help.
Mrs Carway July 2022
Mallards is a lovely place for a fairly large party like ourselves, with lots of space for both sleeping and daytime use. The garden is lovely and sunny and the house itself is really well equipped. We’ll be booking for next year again, sure as eggs is eggs!!
Mr Short September 2021
Amazing family home near the water and central to most beaches
Mr Reeve September 2020
The seafront is very close by. We loved watching the boats and there is a small nature reserve nearby. It's easy to walk to Ryde and towards St Helens.
Mrs Carway August 2020
This is the perfect cottage for us, there's lots of room and lots of rooms; the garden is perfect for the times in between popping to either of the beaches , which are close enough to be able to whip back when a toilet break is needed!
Mr Walford August 2019
A great house that instantly felt like a home. There were seven of us over three generations and it was far from crowded in the living and bedrooms. Very clean and tidy throughout and the garden was perfect for our children. I loved the nautical themed decor throughout and could have spent a day just looking at pictures on the wall, books on shelves and all the ornaments. Seaview is a wonderful place to stay, we had two days on the beach, a short walk from the Mallards and ate at the Old Fort on the front, all well worth visiting. Seaview may be lacking traditional seaside entertainment and a choice of places to eat but we knew this prior to booking and used it as a base to explore other areas of the east coast all very easy to get to. I strongly recommend both the Mallards and Seaview as a place to stay..
Mrs Carway July 2019
This is a great house, in a brilliant location in our favourite place in the Isle of Wight. The fact we want to return every year must speak more than words!
Dr Meguid July 2019
Lovely, well furnished and cared for property.
Mrs Martin October 2018
Very well stocked when we arrived eg toilet paper.
Mrs Carway July 2018
This is a lovely, homely feeling cottage, with loads of great things about it. It’s spacious, with lots of seating and also a lovely garden. We couldn’t fault it at all!
Mrs Donaghy July 2018
We like Mallards-it feels homely. Little touches like the family board games and books helped keep our two small children occupied. Having access to a washing machine etc helps when you are staying with children! The garden is a perfect size to play in but all visible from the house, and plenty of bathrooms for larger groups staying. We also like Seaview as a location. It has pretty much everything we need, and we'd love to visit again.We had a fantastic time, was our second year staying at Mallards and we would happily return
Mrs Lewalter July 2017
We absolutely loved this house. We spent two weeks with our three children here and had a few friends come to visit (the reason we rented such a big place) and loved having such a spacious house. The house has a real family home to it. The interior design (choice of colours, pictures and paintings on the wall) is bold, cheerful and warm. The beds were comfy, the house as well-equipped as we know it has to be with Classic. The location is ideal - just a couple of minutes to the sea at Seaview. Seaview is a real pearl with its lovely beach (great for sandcastle-building and crabbing) and has a fantastic and popular pub (The Old Fort). If we visit the Isle of Wight again I would definitely want to return to this lovely, huge house.
