Built as a Victorian addition to Littlecourt, Magnolia is a charming East Devon self-catering cottage which sleeps 6 in Sidmouth.
The cottage features a large lounge with widescreen TV, dining room alongside a fully equipped modern kitchen. Downstairs there is also a ground floor bedroom with twin beds and an en-suite walk-in shower. On the first floor are two further double bedrooms each with their own ensuite shower rooms and WC's. Outside is a small patio area with garden furniture and parasol. The cottage is surrounded by the award-winning gardens at Littlecourt Cottages which have been featured on the BBC for their beauty.
The cottage is only a short walk to a variety of good restaurants, tea rooms and pubs. The beach is close by and connects with the Jurassic Coast, so there are over 95 miles of coast and countryside to explore. Sidmouth itself is an unspoilt and less commercialised town and still retains the natural beauty of the surrounding coast and countryside.

Everything very comfortable and to a high standard by jdj20 on July 21st 2018
Another lovely stay in Magnolia Cottage at Littlecourt, Sidmouth. (This is the 6th year we have been in this cottage). Everything very comfortable and to a high standard. All spotlessly clean on arrival. The new updated curtains and bed linen and cushions add to the experience. There is a nice table and chairs outside to make use of and we did this every day in the lovely weather. Nice gardens to walk around and safe car parking in the grounds. Only 4 minutes walk from the town, beach and gardens. 2 minutes walk from bus stop for Exeter or Seaton/Lyme Regis. Our thanks to Selywn and Geoffrey for making our stay enjoyable. We now look forward to coming back again next year!
Sidmouth's hidden gem. by Helen on June 30th 2018
A perfect place to relax and unwind amongst Sidmouth's many charms. Just a short stroll to the beach, the shops, parks and gardens, with the opportunity to enjoy cricket, bowls, putting, tennis and a host of water sports. The most welcoming and professional proprietors will make your stay complete.
Absolutely wonderful! by chubb723 on June 23rd 2018
Littlecourt Cottages are absolutely, totally and utterly wonderful; if anyone is planning a holiday in Sidmouth this is definitely the place to stay.

Excellent self-catering accommodation by Shope123 on October 28th 2017
Littlecourt Cottages offers a number of cottages with different numbers of rooms and bedrooms of a very high standard set in a beautiful garden. They are excellently maintained and exceptionally clean. Conveniently located with the seafront and town centre a few minutes walk away. Well appointed, highly maintained cottages with beautiful gardens. Linen and towels provided with on site parking. Very hospitable and friendly owners. Looking forward to our next visit. Excellent!
Spacious, comfortable, elegant… by Tim S, Romsey on September 30th 2017
and, like all of the Littlecourt Cottages, equipped to a high standard and beautifully appointed. We have stayed in all of the other cottages at Littlecourt over the years. This was our first time in Magnolia Cottage – but it could well become our favourite. The large airy kitchen-dining area, complete with all possible equipment, is particularly delightful. And, of course, opening on to the beautiful main Littlecourt garden is a special bonus.
we keep going back by cjllbl London on September 16th 2017
The cottage is ideally situated close to the theatre with the seafront & the shops a short walk away. The cottage is well furnished & very comfortable. Weather permitting, there is a garden table & chairs. The garden is a delight. The owners are very helpful & friendly.
Excellent stay again by lesleyhadfield1 on August 19th 2017
We have stayed here many times before and as usual found the cottage spotlessly clean. We had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Selwyn and Geoffrey are perfect hosts and always willing to share their knowledge of the area, what is going on and the best places to eat. The gardens were looking especially lovely this year and a perfect place to relax. The free Wi-Fi was appreciated by all.
Wonderful by 731lynne731 on July 29th 2017
Lovely, spacious, well-equipped accommodation really close to the beach and town centre, we didn't need to use our car at all. The owners were always helpful and friendly and we had a great stay despite the weather!
Excellent luxury property within easy walking distance of beach, town and gardens by jdj20 on July 22nd 2017
Excellent luxury property set in nice garden surroundings. Very clean and well specified with everything you may need. Good safe car park space in the grounds. Within 4 min walk to the beach, shops, gardens, tennis courts. Owner on hand at all times. Nice seating area in front of cottage.
Dream cottage in sunny Sidmouth by Helen and David on June 24th 2017
Magnolia Cottage is a lovely property with a beautiful garden. A well appointed comfortable and cosy cottage in a quiet and most convenient location. Just 5 minutes walk to the sea front and the shops in the delightfully pleasant town of Sidmouth. Thanks to Selwyn and Geoffrey for making us feel so welcome. We will endeavour to return to this gem. Helen and David, Sue and Adrian, Pauline and Mike.
Magnolia Cottage by sarah l, Bath, on May 27th 2017

Ab Fab!! by Rebecca C on May 20th 2017
Everything was amazing!! We all had a wonderful week, couldn't fault a thing!! Will definitely come back next year☺️☺️☺️
Superb accommodation and magnificent hosts by Moya R on April 22nd 2017
We are getting towards the end of a weeks stay in MAgnolia Cottage and quite frankly we do not want to leave. EVery need for our mixed age group has been anticipated. WE will return and would not think of staying anywhere else in Sidmouth. THis has got to be the best there is!
Superb Magnolia Cottage. by jimhal2712 on April 1st 2017
Excellent it could not be better. Highly recommended. We look forward very much to returning next year.
Lovely cottage by roger5826 on November 19th 2016
Very enjoyable, first stay in Magnolia. Very comfortable and warm, thoroughly enjoyed our time there would recommend to anyone wanting first class accommodation in a lovely location, cannot best it.

Comfortable, clean, lovely property by Carolyn S on September 24th 2016
As always a wonderful stay at Littlecourt Cottages. Magnolia was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and quiet and nothing too much trouble from the owners. Every attention to detail. No wonder they are always so booked up.
Another Excellent Holiday in Magnolia Cottage! by jdj20 on July 23rd 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 by Bootsieban on June 25th 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. by Gail L Waxhaw, North Carolina USA on March 19th 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.
Stephen P Excellent, as always by Stephen P on August 1st 2015
We have returned for many years and would recommend Littlecourt Cottages to everyone. Selwyn and Geoffrey are very welcoming and it is always a pleasure to go down to the cottage in Sidmouth.
Excellent Cottage to a very high standard in quality and cleanliness by jdj20 on July 25th 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!
Fantastic cottage, beautiful gardens, brilliant location by sarah l on May 30th 2015
This is our third year back, it is a fantastic spacious clean cottage with beautiful gardens the location is a five minute walk to the sea front, we absolutely love the little court cottages and the children always have a brilliant holiday
We would highly recommend staying at this immaculate cottage by Colin L Tonbridge on April 25th 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 by jdj20 on July 26th 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!!
Beautiful cottage & grounds by x_gemmie_x on March 22nd 2014
Really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed. Lovely little touches like fresh bread from the bakers when we arrived. It is ideally situated where you can explore the south coast from. Overall a great holiday, beautiful cottage and we would definately book again. Thank you
BEST COTTAGE WE'VE EVER STAYED IN! by JOHN28_12 on March 1st 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!
Absolutely perfect. (As always), by Keith H Sherborne on February 8th 2014
We tried yet another cottage, (working round them all), As usual the team presented it beautifully, it was comfortable in every way, lovely and warm. Selwyn was his usual attentive self. A joy to stay at Littlecourt.
Magnolia is the best cottage we have stayed in by far by tyebags on December 21st 2013
This is our second time in Magnolia Cottage and the standard was again 5 star. Cleaned to a very high standard with all the amenities we needed. The location is perfect as you can walk from the cottage down to the town and promanade ( only 5 mins.) We highly reccomend this property.
First Class Accomodation by jdj20 on July 27th 2013
This is the first time we have stayed in Magnolia but have previously stayed in both the Coach House and Courthaye. As usual everything in the Cottage to a very high standard and spotlessly clean on arrival. The new addition of a Dishwasher in the kitchen was very welcome! Very good to have a designated safe parking space for each cottage in the grounds. Very relaxing sitting in the garden and only 4 minutes walk from the town or seafront. Selwyn and Geoffrey always on hand and nothing is too much trouble. Looking forward to coming back again next year.
Excellent property in lovely gardens by Corinne S on July 20th 2013
I think this was our 7th visit to Magnolia. We keep returning because it is always spotlessly clean and very comfortable and well equipped. Although Magnolia is very central for the beach, restaurants and shops in Sidmouth, it is very quiet and peaceful and is set in lovely gardens. Having an allocated parking space is very helpful in such a central location. The hosts Selwyn and Geoff are on hand to provide advice on where to visit locally and couldn't be more helpful.
Excellent - highly recommend by Susand70 on June 15th 2013
Having stayed here many times, we would highly recommend a holiday in this extremely comfortable, well appointed cottage. Beautifully situated in its own exquisite gardens within easy reach of beach and interesting town. Selwyn and Geoff are delightful hosts who - whist always available - are never obtrusive and always welcoming.
Hoddesdon, United Kingdom Excellent Accommodation by Denis R, Hoddesdon on March 9th 2013
Stayed in Magnolia Cottage in August 2012 for a special family visit. The cottage was beautiful & well maintained with good ground floor facilities for our 90th birthday girl. 2 steps with a good hand rail down to the kitchen were easily managed. Lovely town centre but quiet location. Unfortunately we left it too late to book this year.
Home comforts away from home! by Dorreen L on February 16th 2013
A short break in the middle of the winter - this beautiful property is cosy, comfortable, well-equipped, warm, spotlessly clean, quiet yet only a couple of minutes' walk from the beaches and town centre - in brief, excellent for a relaxing time. Kitchen well equipped (a minor problem during our visit with the hot water in the kitchen, but this was due to work being undertaken at the time elsewhere on the property and didn't affect the showers in any way - which were, by the way, the best I've experienced in the UK with great water pressure). The beds are equipped with hard matresses for those who hate the soft sort.We hope to be back during the warmer weather to enjoy the beautiful garden. - Many thanks to Selwyn!
Outstanding in every way- Magnolia Cottage by Rita W, Bath on February 2nd 2013
Magnolia Cottage was meticulously maintained being spotlessly clean, beautifully comfortable and up to date in every way. It would be difficult to find another place to stay which had these high standards. Peaceful location and idealy situated for shops, beach etc. We were made to feel very welcome.
The best & only place to stay in Sidmouth. by Alison B on December 26th 2012
Have stayed in all the Littlecourt cottages during the last 10 years. All are impeccably clean, well furnished & equipped. Selwyn ensures everything is maintained to a high standard & is so welcoming, it's always a pleasure to go back. It feels like going home - it's so relaxing. Excellent position & beautiful gardens. Can find no faults. We have stayed in other self catering places & hotels in Sidmouth & elsewhere but always return to Littlecourt as it really is the best.
Home from Home by Isabel W, Cheltenham on October 27th 2012
A short walk to the sea, this development of 5 cottages are in immaculate condition, with all amenities available, warmth, comfort and relaxation - perfect!
Personal service, comfort and attention to detail maintained year after year by Carol241 on October 20th 2012
his was our fifth stay at Littlecourt but our first in Magnolia Cottage. The cottage was superb all the luxury of a first class hotel with the convenience of self catering. The owners think of everything to aid their guests comfort, constantly updating. Sidmouth and Littlecourt is our number one place to stay. Highly recommended.

magnolia cottage is comfortable & peaceful in lovely surroundings. it,s a short walk to the shops & sea at sidmouth & also near lots of beautiful places to visit in the car. we had a lovely week here & were even lucky with good weather. a very relaxing place
Quiet, spotless and very comfortable with welcoming hosts by Corinne S, Brighton on July 14th 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
Excellent by PAMELA H, Bristo on June 30th 2012
A wonderful place to stay.For 9 Years we have found the accommodation first class.Situated in such beautiful gardens this is indeed a peaceful lovely cottage
Excellent by Brian R on May 26th 2012
Five of us, my wife and I, my wife's two sisters and a brother in law, stayed at Magnolia Cottage. Very well appointed, and very comfortable. Beautifull location especially if you are a garden lover.. Short walk , about 5 minutes, to the front and a short walk, again about 5 minutes, to the shops, on the slightest of inclines. Well received by our resident hosts who were very attentive and helpful, but in a discreet way.
Sidmouth and the Littlecourt Cottages are an unexpected delight ! by Elizabeth G Brisbane, Australia on March 31st 2012
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.
