Absolutely beautiful

5 of 5
We stayed for a long weekend, and we picked the perfect weekend. The barn is amazing and so spacious and private. We spent most evening on the lovely terrace area as the weather was superb. The barn is about a 30 minute drive from most of the towns which is ideal as you are tucked away is a pretty little village, the local pub is a must food is delicious. Safe to say we will definitely be returning next year Thank you so much Jackie Xx

Quintessential Devon Cottage within easy reach of the coast and the South Hams

5 of 5
We enjoyed this beautiful cottage in the peaceful village of South Milton. The cottage is very well equipped with all mod. cons., but retains it's old-world charm. There is plenty of outside space and parking. South Milton Beach and the Coastal path is a short drive, or a 30 minute walk away. The South Devon coastline is stunning. Totnes, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, and more are within easy reach. Overall, we would highly recommend The Quillet. As a base for exploring, walking, beaching, or just relaxing, this cottage is a little gem.
