“Quiet, spotless and very comfortable with welcoming hosts”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We have stayed in MAGNOLIA COTTAGE for the last 5 years and look forward to another visit in 2011. The cottages are ideally located for the town, restaurants and the beach and are set in beautiful gardens. MAGNOLIA is very well equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay and has the additional benefit of ground floor en suite bedroom. We have never stayed anywhere that is so consistently spotlessly clean and well furnished. The hosts Selwyn and Geoff are very welcoming and are always helpful with advice about local facilities and events

“Sidmouth and the Littlecourt Cottages are an unexpected delight !”
Reviewed April 8, 2012 for a stay in March 2012
1
person found this review helpful

Having arrived in Sidmouth the previous day and after a rather cramped overnight hotel stay with 2 children, we decided to stay longer and explore more. The Sidmouth Information Centre pointed us in the direction of the self catering Littlecourt Cottages and we are so glad they did. We met Selwyn and moved with great delight into lovely Magnolia Cottage for a four night stay at an extremely reasonable rate even for Low Season.

From Sidmouth we were able to travel to local highlights such as the Donkey Sanctuary, and to Lyme Regis which was having a lovely warm day much like at home on the Gold Coast but with the added attraction of its amazing harbour walls and fossils.

We also had a day trip across to Cornwall for visits to Looe, Polperro and Mevagissey.

Best of all is the town of Sidmouth itself, beautifully positioned between two magically red headlands and promoted as "Regency Town on the Jurassic Coast". Walking around town is an entertainment in itself with a plethora of vibrant and unusual shops.

For the history minded there is a booklet available on the Blue Plaque buildings, and another lovely walk along the beachfront to Jacob's Ladder and Connaught Gardens. Sidmouth also marks the beginning of the South West Coast Path.

As the Cottages are so close to everything we enjoyed walking around town and discovering coffee and eating places. No need to find a car park !

Magnolia Cottage is beautifully outfitted with everything a family could want, including access to a washing machine, very important when travelling with children. The biggest delight was the prizewinning garden with many unique trees and plants.

On any future trip to the UK we would definitely return to Sidmouth and Littlecourt Cottages. [Sorry not techsavvy to do photos !]
