“Another Excellent Holiday in Magnolia Cottage!”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very pleasant and relaxing stay in Magnolia Cottage. Everything clean and to a high standard with Selwyn and Geoffrey excellent hosts. Plenty of areas to sit in either beside the cottage or in the lovely well kept gardens to take in the sun. Only 4 minutes walk from town and beach. Designated parking area in the grounds so the car is safe, which is very important. We have stayed at Littlecourt Cottages numerous times over the years and keep coming back! Sidmouth is a gem town with a lovely prom and is handy for visiting Exeter and other parts of Devon including Dartmouth if you feel the need.

“Tranquility at its best”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottages are surrounded by beautiful gardens that provide colour, scent and tranquility yet within a ten minute walk is a flat promenade next to the sea and plenty of excellent restaurants.
The kitchen at Magnolia had everything you could ever want and the dining area was light and spacious.
Three en-suite showers with toiletries was a bonus, as was the heating provided on chilly days!
I could happily live here!

“Couldn't have chosen a more perfect place.”
Reviewed 22 March 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 26 July 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 14 June 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.
