“Couldn't have chosen a more perfect place.”
Reviewed March 22, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

There's a reason why these cottages are fully booked so far in advance. Don't know whether to keep it a secret or brag about finding such a perfect spot. Superbly clean and well organized, Selwyn and Geoff work tirelessly to maintain everything to very high standards, it's more like staying in a country home than a cottage. The gardens are beautiful with shrubs and trees planted to give privacy from all angles. The property is conveniently located within easy walking distance into Sidmouth or the sea front. We booked a month so that family members could come and stay at various times. Big plus was having en suite bathrooms for each bedroom.

“Excellent Cottage to a very high standard in quality and cleanliness”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Another enjoyable stay in this excellent cottage set in lovely gardens with designated outdoor seating area and parking space. Everything to a very high standard in quality and cleanliness. In easy walking distance of the town, beach and gardens. We have been staying in Littlecourt cottages now for a number of years and rate them very highly. Very relaxing place to stay!

“We would highly recommend staying at this immaculate cottage”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Magnolia Cottage is well placed within easy walking distance of the town and sea front. It is exceptionally well fitted out and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. A warm welcome from hosts Selwyn and Geoffrey and helpful advice on places to visit and eat made for a very enjoyable stay. Visited with parents in late 80s so the downstairs bedroom was ideal for those with mobility restrictions.

“Excellent Cottage in Sidmouth”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Once again we have enjoyed our stay in Magnolia Cottage. Well fitted out, very comfortable and spotlessly clean on arrival. We have loved taking advantage of the outside seating in the garden. This cottage is so handy for everything in Sidmouth, no more than 4 minutes walk to the Seafront, Shops or Connought Gardens. Also good car parking space allocated. Already booked for next year!!

“BEST COTTAGE WE'VE EVER STAYED IN!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We've stayed at MAGNOLIA COTTAGE many times over the last 13 years and it's always been SUPERB! The cottage is spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming, with all the amenities you would ever want! You are always sure of a warm welcome and nothing is too much for Selwyn and Geoffrey. The cottage is one of 5 in a very peaceful location, yet only a few minutes walk from the town or sea. We've stayed in many cottages throughout the country, from the downright disgusting to the very best and believe me this cottage IS the very best of them all!
