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. 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.
The Littlecourt is a haven of peace and tranquility, and is enviably situated in close proximity to the pebble beaches, the esplanade, shops, theater, cinema, gardens, putting, croquet and bowling greens, golf course, cricket field, tennis courts and indoor heated Swimming Pool. There are many excellent restaurants, tea rooms and pubs within walking distance of the cottages. For the more adventurous there are numerous eating places within a 12 mile radius.
