“Jewel in the crown”
Reviewed 18 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Hemphaye is one of a small collection of cottages in the heart of Sidmouth most of which we have stayed in during the last year or so. They are all beautifully furnished, excellently equipped, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable, but in our opinion Hemphaye is the jewel in the crown. Set in fine gardens, it is quiet and secluded but only a few minutes' walk to the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants....it's a real gem.

Thanks for your feedback. All old magazines have now been binned and we have placed complimentary toiletries including soap in all the cottages.

This is one of the best and well maintained rental cottages you could wish for. We could not find any faults with it with a very good welcome on arrival also any help was quickly dealt with.On the final day we were given a very nice farewell and have safe trip home. ANN & Brian

“Perfect cottages, home from home and ideally situated.”
Reviewed 20 February 2012 for a stay in October 2010

Littlecourt cottages are the only holiday lets so far that we have ever recommended to family and friends. So far we have stayed in 2 of the cottages with our 2 young sons and found them to be spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything you could ask for. They are in a great location and within a few minutes of both the beach and town centre with plenty of shops and eating places. The cottages tend to get booked really quick so we missed out last year but we are hoping to return in the near future. The owners are amongst some of the nicest people we have ever met and are always happy to help.
