a delightful stay 5*
We have had a delightful stay and feel well rested. Such a peaceful environment with such lovely gardens and cottage. The cottage has everything you need in it for self catering and is extremely comfortable. Thank you for your welcome you made us feel at home. We will be returning. Tips for other travellers Sidmouth is a beautiful place, and being so close to the sea and amenities was an advantage. There is a good selection of places to eat and the takeaways we experienced were excellent. Enjoyed local places to visit, especially Bicton Gardens.

Selwyn greeted us on our arrival and showed us how everything worked in the beautiful cottage. All facilities were first class and it was like home from home. The gardens are beautiful and tranquil and our outdoor area was lovely to sit out at when the weather was good. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful. We will be back.
Home away from home
August 21st 2020
This is the fourth time we have stayed in Courthaye cottage. It is truly a home away from home. Very comfortable, immaculately presented and spotlessly clean. Selwyn and Geoff always go above and beyond to make guests feel welcome. See you again soon!
The perfect cottage in the perfect location!
August 18th 2020
This is such a beautiful place to stay! Beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean, with parking (hard to find in Sidmouth), two minutes' walk from the beach. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful gardens with many different tranquil outdoor seating areas so that you can follow the sun throughout the day if you wish! Spacious and airy bedrooms with comfortable beds so you get a good night's sleep. If you are unlucky enough to have bad weather the cottage is a lovely cosy place to hole up and watch Netflix or play games. We have stayed at Littlecourt many times and all the cottages are different but all amazing, freshly decorated and beautifully furnished. The owners are lovely and do everything in their power to make your stay perfect.
Fantastic as usual

We don't really want anyone else to know about this place as it's hard enough as it is to get booked!! For us it is home from home. Courthaye is immaculate. Selwyn and Geoff are fantastic hosts - nothing is too much trouble. The small theatre is just down the road, the sea 5 minutes from the door and, if you should want to leave Sidmouth, the bus service is great. We return 2 or 3 times a year and woudn't dream of staying anywhere else. This place is perfect.
Excellent comfortable cottages with lovely gardens

Our eighth visit. Always receive a really warm welcome from the owners, Selwyn and Geoff. This time stayed in Courthaye, a spacious comfortable spotlessly clean cottage, the kitchen of which has recently been very tastefully redesigned. Extremely well equipped and everything provided to ensure a really enjoyable relaxing holiday Easy walk to the seafront, cafes, shops, cinema and theatre. So good, have already booked for 2020.
Yet another wonderful holiday
August 23rd 2019
This was our third stay in Courthaye cottage. A true "home away from home". We always feel relaxed here. The kitchen/diner has been refurbished since last year and a downstairs toilet room also installed. A very comfortable stay again and Selwyn and Geoff are great hosts. We always love coming here to stay. This year we also had the Sidmouth air-show to finish the holiday off nicely.
Refurbished since last year - lovely home for a week
August 10th 2019
The kitchen has been revamped and a very useful downstairs toilet added. Very comfortable home for a week - we were actually dancing in the festival so it was wonderful to pop back for a cuppa and sit down in between times - and not far from the Manor pavilion when going to queue! Garden full of lovely plants old and new. Definitely coming back next year ( already booked)
Another lovely week at Littlecourt Cottages
July 20th 2019
We have had another lovely week at Littlecourt Cottages, this time staying in Courthaye. As usual the cottage was spotlessly clean on arrival with the excellent welcome pack in the kitchen. This is our first time in this cottage since the recent updates to the kitchen and dining area and these improvements have enhanced the cottage further. We look forward to returning again next year.
Meets ALL of our needs
July 6th 2019
We have been guests at Littlecourt for a number of years and usually stay on a weekly basis 2 or 3 times a year. We recently stayed in our favourite cottage "Courthaye". This is our second visit (out of three) for 2019. The quality of cleanliness, hygiene and facilities are, as always, to an exceptional high standard and the attention to detail is excellent. After every visit we try to find fault but fail dismally. Well done Selwyn, Geoffry and "the team". EXCELLENT - looking forward to September.
Just when you think things can't get any better.....!

We have enjoyed so many lovely visits to Littlecourt over the years, in several of its Cottages, that we have run out of superlatives. But superlatives don't stop Selwyn and Geoff!! Perfectly located in elegant Sidmouth, only a couple of minutes stroll from the Esplanade and Town shopping, this was our first stay In Courthaye since its kitchen and dining room enhancements: all beautifully done and carrying the quality and style trademark of Littlecourt. There is an additional cute loo, too, on the ground floor! The two bedrooms remain unchanged : very spacious, with high ceilings and lovely views, and extremely comfortable beds, so sweet dreams guaranteed! We were able to take a peek at the transformed Magnolia and Coach House and these are equally impressive. So once again, thank you Selwyn and Geoff for a lovely, relaxing week in Courthaye and thank you to Hazel for all the skill and graft that goes into keeping Littlecourt's gardens so exquisite. We absolutely love Littlecourt and look forward to our next visit.

Yet another wonderful week at Courthaye Cottage. We were delighted to find a new kitchen layout plus smart downstairs cloakroom, very tastefully done! Returning year after year has to be the best recommendation we can give! Thank you, Selwyn and Geoff, for another great holiday - even the weather was perfect!
Yet another wonderful week at Courthaye!

Our fourth stay and our first following an excellent refurbishment creating a downstairs loo and a marvellous dining kitchen out of two separate rooms. We love to stay at Courthaye for a relaxing spring break. The period cottage is perfectly kept and is in a quiet road just a short walk to the local theatre, the Esplanade, the shops and restaurants where we were able to enjoy some excellent meals. Commendable in every way!
Peaceful spot perfectly located for all the amenities in Sidmouth
August 11th 2018
Only a couple of minutes from the Manor Pavilion; a couple more minutes from the seafront and the museum, easy access to all the shops. Great to have an off road parking space. The cottage is extremely well equipped, very spacious and comfortable. Lovely communal garden to explore and ( if you're lucky) to take cuttings from!

Littlecourt in sidmouth is absolutely delightful, a true haven by the sea. It’s within easy reach of both the seafront and the town. The standard inside the cottages is truly first class. The hosts Selywn and Geoffrey make you very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. My family and I have been going to Littlecourt for many years and so far we have not found anywhere that compares.
July 7th 2018
The cottage is part of a larger listed property complex.The property is situated in a lovely garden setting. The cottage is furnished to a high standard.The location is in a quiet residential road yet within easy walking distance of the town & the seafront.

Five star accommodation 😀 Spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds. We spent lots of time in the garden which surround the house - there are many shady nooks to sit in and take in the beautiful plants and the garden fountain. The location is perfect for taking a steady stroll into Sidmouth town centre. I would say it’s no more than a 15 minute round trip to pick up the morning papers would definitely recommend. Geoffrey Selwyn and Hazel are so friendly and brilliant hosts nothing is too much trouble - we will be back !
Second to None!

Arrived home today after a lovely week in Sidmouth staying at Littlecourt Cottages,self catering, a beautiful, peaceful oasis , home from home. Clean, tidy and very comfatable. Just a few minutes walk takes you to the centre of Sidmouths shopping area and Esplanade. Good centre for exploring further afield Lyme Regis 30 minute drive, National Trust property A la Ronde at Exmouth, 9 miles away, definite must see, alittle further is Fingle Bridge for those who enjoy a good walk with Castle Drogo near by, National Trust also. The underground Quarry Caves at Beer are worth a visit especially if you enjoy history, fleece ponchos supplied if not dressed warm! Beer itself worth a visit even if you don't fancy the caves. But you can stay in Sidmouth for the week and be perfectly happy. Selwyn and Geoffrey are the perfect hosts at Littlecourt, warm, friendly welcome, there if you need them , mum and I persuaded my dad to book for next year before we left!!
Great week at Littlecourt!

This is my 5th stay at Littlecourt Cottages and my second in Courthaye. The cottage is very homely and well equipped. This year we did not move outside Sidmouth and spent the entire week walking and relaxing in the cottage. We all thoroughly enjoyed pottering around the town and having coffee in one of the many coffee shops, particularly the one next to the church in Church St. and in Connault Gardens. I am already looking forward to next year!
