Description

Hemphaye cottage is centrally heated and has been furnished and decorated to a high standard, personally maintained by the owners and kept spotlessly clean.
Open all year, Sidmouth's mild climate makes the cottage an ideal choice both for Summer holidays and for Winter and Autumn breaks.
Since opening in April 2000, all our guests have been surprised and delighted with the size and luxury of the accommodation. In fact, one of our guests has written in the visitors' book “What a delightful place. Our immediate reaction after unpacking was 'Holiday Cottage! We could live here'. Everything is very well thought out and provided.”

Location description from owner

The England region

Rural idyll in all its many varieties from the sheep crossing the road on Dartmoor to the cricketers on the village green. The coast is good too. From the wide swathes of beach in north Devon to the sheltered coves in the south, with the big open skies over Dartmoor in between, there are plenty of pieces of Devon to fall in love with.

Holidays in Devon range from surfing havens on the north coast, through dog friendly countryside retreats, to south Devon cottage holidays on the seafront. From Lynton and Lynmouth in North Devon, through Dartmoor to Salcombe and Start Point on the English channel, Devon is England’s only county with two coastlines. With the mass of rural landscape between, Devon is the fourth largest English county.

The north coast is exposed to the Celtic sea with surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Saunton and Westward Ho!, and a self catering holiday cottage in Devon has the best of everything. With seaside resorts for deck chairs and icecreams, high moorland for hiking and horizon views, valleys of lush greenery, cities such as Plymouth for shopping, and rural villages for quaint customs, Devon has it all.
East Devon covers an approximately triangular area from Axminster in the east to Cullompton in the north. It then follows the M5 west down to Exeter and the seashore back east to Axminster. Within this triangle are the towns of Honiton, Sidmouth, Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Ottery St Mary, Seaton and Colyton as well as miles of wonderful coastline and acres of magnificent countryside.
The county receives warm summers with occasional hot spells and cool rainy periods. Winters are generally mild and the county often experiences some of the mildest winters in the world.

West Country

Sidmouth’s attraction lies not only in the unspoilt and less commercialised town but also in the natural beauty of the coastline, countryside and the gardens which more than once have earned it the ‘Britain in Bloom’ award.

Each year in August‚ Sidmouth hosts the celebrated Folk Festival Week‚ when we see vibrant colour and listen to music from around the world. Laughter and smiles are to be seen everywhere.

Beautiful gardens and leisurely walks‚ Regency history and fine hotels‚ clean beaches and friendly shops. it’s all here in this lovely seaside town that nestles beneath majestic red cliffs and the green hills of the glorious Sid Valley. The area is one of Britain’s loveliest, for relaxing in, walking around the town, or touring more extensively in the West Country.

In December 2001, the East Devon and Dorset coastline was granted World Heritage Site status. Sidmouth is now a major gateway to the Site. UNESCO called the Jurassic Coast, a 95-mile stretch of coast from Exmouth to Swanage, an outstanding example, representing a major stage of earth’s history and record of life.

“Absolutely Perfect”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2016

The cottage is very attractive, plenty big enough for six people but still cosy and was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Everything was immaculate and the kitchen probably better equipped than your own! The location is excellent, just a couple of minute's walk to the seafront or centre of town but tucked away in a very quiet street. I would say it's the best rented cottage we have ever stayed in and I would highly recommend it.

Thank you for your kind comments Mary, I'm so pleased we were able to make your stay enjoyable, much appreciated.

“Enchanting coupled with excellent value in a superb location”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2015

Only our 2nd visit just wish we had discovered earlier. Set in fabulous gardens, close to town centre, and short walk to the sea front it really is the most delightful, restful location. Excellent choice of a few cottages, furnished to the highest standard, both the gardens and cottages kept to the highest standards by the owners. Many superb walks close by including the magnificant Jurassic coastline literally on your doorstep, excellent shops and restuarants set in the most delightful Regency resort. It was and is the most enjoyable weeks holiday to choose, can't wait to return. Extra special as my wife is an avid Gardner.

“Sssh. Don't tell anyone this place is fantastic!”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2014

Hemphaye Cottage was a delightful place to stay, completely self contained and equipped to a very high standard. It was cosy and comfortable and only a few minutes walk to the seafront. Sidmouth is always a delight and the friendly welcome at Littlecourt made it the perfect place to stay for Christmas. Thank you Selwyn & Geoff.

“Could not fault Hemphayes Cottage, excellent accommodation in super resort.”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

This must be the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. It was comfortable, tastefully furnished well equipped and felt like home from home . It was in a convenient but quiet situation close to the seafront. We would definitely book there again .

“Perfect cottages for a family reunion, loved the gardens!”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2013

We were extremely happy with our stay at Little Court Cottages. The holiday was arranged as a family reunion - 10 people in all. We stayed in Hemphaye, which suited our family perfectly - 2 adults and 3 kids aged 15, 13 and 9. My brother and his family and our Mum stayed in Magnolia which was great as we had easy access between the two cottages. The cottages were clean, very comfortable, well kept, everything in good working order and tastfully decorated. We were especially impressed with the milk and bread on arrival - what a thoughtful touch after a long trip! The gardens and grounds were beautiful too. Everytime we saw Selwyn and Geoff they checked that all was ok - they were very friendly and helpful hosts. We would love to return one day. Highly recommend this property!

“A great place to stay and relax in South Devon”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2013

We always receive a warm and friendly welcome from Selwyn and Grahen when we stay at the Littlecourt Cottages. Hemphaye Cottage is beautifully furnised and finished to a very high standard. No-one could ask for more in terms of the facilities in the cottage. Wifi, a good tv, a stereo etc all help to relax you as you plan your next day's activities. The gardens are a great source of pleasure with flowers and aromas in abundance. The outside seating area for "our" cottage is secluded and shaded - perfect for unwinding at the end of a day. Sidmouth is a special place we think and being able to stay in such great surroundings makes our holiday even better. our grandaughter was sad to leave but perked up when we told her we had booked again for next year. A wonderful stay in a wonderful place, managed so well by Selwyn and his team. Well done to all.

“Absolutely beautiful cottage and gardens - very relaxing.”

Reviewed 8 May 2013

Hemphaye Cottage was lovely and clean and in an ideal setting for a relaxing stay. Selwyn and Geoffrey were very friendly and helpful to everyone. Only downside was Hemphaye is not suitable for the disabled especially as there is no w.c. on the ground floor. However, it did not deter our party and we have booked again for 2014 but for two weeks this time and in Magnolia Cottage which we visited whilst we were there and found much more suited to our needs. Thank you Selwyn for a lovely holiday.

“Home from home”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2013

Lovely cottage, Very clean, friendly welcome. Fresh bread, milk & a bottle of bubbly were left for us to enjoy. Tiny little comment- no soap on the hand basins.Magazines were kindly left in the lounge but were very out of date (2008!) would have been nice to have new ones. Overall a lovely stay & would return again. Thank you.

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