“Beautifully furnished, well equipped cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a lovely week at Golden Cottage. We went with our children aged 9 and 13 and my mother -in-law. The house was so cosy, comfortable and well equipped and the location couldn't be better. Being so near the Esplanade, playground and town centre worked really well for all of us. And Sidmouth itself was fabulous!

“Lovely weekend in Sidmouth with sisters”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Golden Cottage is close to the beach and the town but in a quiet spot. Lizzie and Alex were friendly and very helpful when I contacted them . The cottage is well equipped and we enjoyed the kitchen /diner space. Having a parking space was great , being able to drive in and unpack. We were very lucky with the weather for the time of year and had a lovely weekend.

“Brilliant location, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Slightly tucked away, yet a 2 minute walk to the sea front, Golden Cottage was exactly what we wanted. The cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable. With a good kitchen and lovely sunny dining area it was an easy house in which to just relax and enjoy being part of Sidmouth.
Very comfortable beds and a lovely big bathroom (with a very efficient shower).
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day break and would certainly stay again!

“Perfect family mini break at Golden Cottage”
Reviewed 1 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

We have just returned from a lovely weekend at Golden Cottage in Sidmouth. The cottage is perfectly located right in the centre of town and has its own parking space which is a huge blessing, parking spaces are like gold dust! The children, 2 and 9 loved the toys and the DVDs were brilliant especially when the rain kept us indoors for a while. The cottage has more than enough space with three bedrooms and has a very sweet garden area. Its only a two minute walk to the town centre and beach which is just beautiful. The owners have left some really helpful notes on where go and what to see which was great as the area was new to us. Waitrose is nearby to stock up on essentials and there are lots of options for eating out simple cafes and lovely restaurant. A perfect stay for the children and the grown ups.

Had a really great stay with my family at Golden Cottage. It's a really lovely holiday home - very cosy and well looked after. Was impressed by the well equipped kitchen, cosy sitting room and gorgeous bathroom. It's spacious too and much bigger than it looks from the outside. We also found the owners to be friendly and helpful. And I love the fact the cottage offers a mini-library of DVD movies too - nice touch!
