I had a great stay at the cottage with three others in Feb. Very homely, cosy and immaculate inside and a great base from which to explore beautiful Sidmouth and beyond . Already looking to book again for next year . Many thanks for the lovely stay.

“A wonderful base for a weekend in Sidmouth”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I had a fantastic stay at Golden Cottage with a group of friends in late February. The location was outstanding - on a quiet road but perfect for the town centre and the beach. The cottage itself was bright and cosy. The bedrooms were a good size and there was a great kitchen/diner and power shower. I will definitely be back for a visit in the future and would thoroughly recommend it for groups of friends or families.

“Perfect holiday cottage for family trips to the seaside”
Reviewed November 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

You couldn’t ask for more than Golden Cottage if you’re planning a visit to the beautiful seaside town of Sidmouth.

Located in the centre of town, it’s less than a five minute walk over flat ground to the seafront and town centre.

The cottage is newly furnished and in a very clean and modern condition with lots of nice touches. For example, we arrived to find a traditional Devon cream tea waiting for us on the dining table, complete with home-made scones, double cream and jam!

The whole property feels warm, comfortable and welcoming, with clean, fresh bedding and towels and new carpets throughout. Should you encounter rain or opt for a quiet night in, there’s a great selection of children’s books, DVDs and board games. Off street parking means you’re guaranteed a parking space and loading/unloading the car is trivial.

Owners Alex and Lizzy are very helpful and also know just what young families need - going as far as arranging for someone to visit the cottage at short notice and set up a baby cot for our arrival.

All in all, we had a fantastic long weekend with our toddler and newborn, relaxing on the beach, strolling along the seafront and enjoying traditional Devonshire ice creams and fish and chips. We’re looking forward to our next visit!

“Beautifully furnished, well equipped cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a lovely week at Golden Cottage. We went with our children aged 9 and 13 and my mother -in-law. The house was so cosy, comfortable and well equipped and the location couldn't be better. Being so near the Esplanade, playground and town centre worked really well for all of us. And Sidmouth itself was fabulous!

“Lovely weekend in Sidmouth with sisters”
Reviewed October 14, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Golden Cottage is close to the beach and the town but in a quiet spot. Lizzie and Alex were friendly and very helpful when I contacted them . The cottage is well equipped and we enjoyed the kitchen /diner space. Having a parking space was great , being able to drive in and unpack. We were very lucky with the weather for the time of year and had a lovely weekend.

“Brilliant location, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Slightly tucked away, yet a 2 minute walk to the sea front, Golden Cottage was exactly what we wanted. The cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable. With a good kitchen and lovely sunny dining area it was an easy house in which to just relax and enjoy being part of Sidmouth.
Very comfortable beds and a lovely big bathroom (with a very efficient shower).
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day break and would certainly stay again!
