Situated on one of Guildford's best private roads, Littleholm Cottage sits in beautiful gardens of approximately a quarter of an acre and was built as the gardener's cottage to Littleholme. Vernacular in style the house retains many of its original features including Bath stone window mullions and central arch externally, whilst inside there are a number of plank doors with large iron hinges featuring spade decoration and the window cills retain the original glazed green tiles. It bears all the hallmarks of Voysey's style, with roughcast walls, gables, leaded light windows, and open fireplaces with round-headed brick arches and iron fire grates.

The cottage was designed by C F A Voysey as the gardener's cottage to the main house, Littleholme which he built in 1907 for the builder and interior decorator G Muntzer who had worked on some of Voysey's Surrey houses. Voysey estimated that the gardener's cottage would cost considerably less than the garden at £300. The signed original plans and drawings by Voysey survive. During the Second World War the main house was requisitioned by the Home Office and the Muntzers moved into the gardener's cottage.
