About Averil Brown
We are based in Poole and keen sailors. We originally got to know South Devon on several sailing holidays as well as enjoyed renting properties with friends over the New Year in the area. We bought "The Quillett" as a second home / holiday rental in 2016 and spent a happy year renovating the cottage whilst exploring the area which we have come to love even more. The coast is stunning and there is so much to do in the area.
Averil Brown purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Averil Brown chose Kingsbridge
The Quillett, is a 350 year old cottage with loads of character. We love the history of the place , it's inglenook fireplace and large spacious lounge. The area is outstanding. The coast path both ways from the cottage is stunning . There are wonderful circular walks to take in the coastal beauty and include a pub or two along the way! This area is superb all year round. With national trust properties and walks, lots of tourist attractions as well as outdoor life.
What makes this Cottage unique
Spring & Autumn is for walking, enjoying the local craft fairs, villages and sights without the crowds and sampling great food and drink along the way. Devon is open all year round so lots to do and see. Enjoy all the regular summer festivals and regattas, superb pubs and restaurants and peace and quiet of rural life. South Milton itself is a tranquil village just a mile from a stunning beach. Wander the village, visit the church and enjoy eeting the locals at the monthly village "pub" event!

All around wonderful
We truly enjoyed our time here......
So delighted you enjoyed your stay in our cottage
Very cosy cottage
Ideal location to explore South Hams. The cottage is well equiped and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen was not so clean. Bedrooms to garden side are very quiet and the living room with fireplace is great.
A cosy thatched treat!
Beautifully presented cottage with spacious living area. Cosy and warm with a charming, quaint garden to sit in and relax. Good walking direct from cottage and easy access to coast and woodlands. Relaxing and tranquil.
An amazing week in a beautiful cottage!
We loved our week so much that we booked another one! This is a beautiful cottage, you arrive and think 'thank goodness, it's all I'd hoped for and more'! It's beautifully decorated, incredibly comfortable and the owners have taken great care to provide for all your needs: from games for the family to local drinks and goodies on the table to welcome you as well as condiments and all the basics. Lots of information and maps for the local area and a wonderful happy space! Plenty of great coastal and other walks nearby (recommend East Prawle and Prawle Point) as well as good local amenities and supplies. The neighbours were also incredibly friendly and helpful - they have a wonderful business supplying bespoke dog beds/collars and other goodies - do check them out! We had a wonderful time, you won't be disappointed if you book if you book this beautiful cottage.
Delighted you has such a lovely holiday and enjoyed staying in the cottage so much!

Gorgeous and quaint home.
Lovely homely quaint cottage in beautiful area, amazing garden.
Walked into the lounge and thought: wow I love this place and more than my friend and I had imagined it to be!
All very equipped with things at the cottage so no issues there.
Lovely working fire too and the home was very warm regardless of fire being used.
The neighbours are lovely and friendly too.
Only one little tiny drawback was that we felt the cottage wasn’t totally upto cleaning standards, bit dusty in the bathroom around skirting boards, and the chain for the bath plug was broken off.
Also the windows little tricky to open and shut firmly.
These things are minor and it won’t stop my friend and I visiting again in the summer months and we felt quite sad to leave The Quillet.
Thankyou for a lovely stay.
Lovely cottage in a fantastic location.
The cottage was wonderful. Every home comfort included, a perfect cosy cottage with everything we needed for a Christmas break. It is also in a fantastic location with easy access to the whole of the South Hams area and many spectacular beaches and coastal walks. A perfect get away from it all holiday home.
Delighted you had such a great stay! Thank you so much for your kind review
Best regards Averil
Wonderful walking country with one of the most beautiful parts of the SouthWest coast path on your doorstop and lots of circular walks to take in the coastal beauty.
Great place for water-based activities from the beach, surfing, paddle-boarding, kayaking and sailing.
