Littleham is an area of Exmouth in East Devon, England. It was historically a village and civil parish,[1] much older than Exmouth itself.

The ecclesiastical parish is now known as Littleham-cum-Exmouth. The original parish church dates back to the 13th century and is dedicated to St Margaret and St Andrew. Frances Nelson, wife of Lord Nelson, is buried in the churchyard.[2] The newer parish church of the Holy Trinity was built in 1824.

Between 1903 and 1967 Littleham had its own railway station, on the Exmouth & Salterton Railway of the London and South Western Railway.

To the South of Littleham is Sandy Bay, with a large seaside caravan resort owned by Haven Holidays,[3] called Devon Cliffs.[4][5]
