Quiet & relaxing, perfectly positioned for exploring the Heritage coast (and with an eclectic book collection!)
"The cottage has been everything we could possibly have wanted in a holiday retreat - warm, comfortable, divinely pretty and romantic!"

Le logement

Welcome to Mill End
From May to the end of August our aim is to let weekly Friday to Friday, short breaks will be considered at short notice if we have no weekly bookings.
From September to the end of April any booking will be welcomed subject to our minimum of three nights.
Please note we have seasonal pricing so make sure you have entered the dates you want to stay to get the right cost
Recently refurbished, with new kitchen and new double glazed windows.
Upstairs is the large, light, south facing bedroom with king size bed, armchairs and a coffee table. There is a TV with DVD player and a selection of DVDs. The bathroom is adjacent with a bath and a shower.
Downstairs is the newly fully fitted kitchen/living/dining room with TV. It is a small room but sunny in summer and cosy in winter. There is a sofa bed for the occasional guest(s). (£15 for linen or bring your own)
The kitchen has an oven, microwave and a 4 ring hob with cover which acts as a splashback when open. There is also a larder fridge, a freezer, a toaster and, of course, a kettle.
There is a downstairs WC.
The cottage has oil fired central heating.
Immediately outside is a south facing terrace with a large table and an electric awning. If you have friends/family in the area you can entertain up to 10. The awning can act as a sunshade or an umbrella so even if it is drizzling it is still possible to be outside. It's an extra room!
There is parking for one car.
You have an exclusive private garden area - south-west facing, with a table and chairs and 2 "rocking loungers" ideal for relaxing and sunbathing - see picture. The whole garden, of which this is part, is designed mainly for wildlife - shrubs, trees and many scented hip bearing roses.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We generally try to be around to greet our guests and make sure they know where everything is. We are always happy to have a chat but we respect our guests privacy and leave them alone to enjoy their holiday.

Autres remarques

As you would expect we provide bed linen and towels. There are herbs you can pick in the garden. We provide condiments, tea and coffee and cleaning materials.
There are two doors (as in double thickness) separating the end cottage from the rest of the house and upstairs there is a store room next to the bedroom so noise intrusion from the rest of the house is not a problem.

For the most part our guests appreciate how quiet it is but occasionally we have a problem on Sundays. Between 10am to 3pm on Sundays there is a motocross track about half a mile away. If the wind is in the wrong direction then it can be surprisingly and irritatingly loud in the garden. Our advice is to either go out or stay indoors! Some Sundays you wouldn't know it was there. We haven't had any complaints to date but it is only fair to warn you.

Well behaved dogs are welcome but the accommodation is really not big enough for very large dogs. If you bring a dog(s) we assume you are responsible poop a scoopers, and that you will bring appropriate blankets to cover the furniture if they are used to sitting on furniture. There is a resident cat, so cat chasing dogs are not welcome!

Interior is quite charming...though I needed extra pillows. Don't be put off by the unkept grounds, patio, and exterior.

Réponse de Roderick And Claire :
I am glad Gail found the interior charming I am just sorry that we seem to have disappointed her in other respects. We provide four pillows for the double bed (2 per person which we think is a reasonable provision and has been sufficient for previous guests). Gail asked for extra which we were happy to provide. If she had let us know in advance we would have had them waiting for her. I am very sorry that the patio outside the accommodation was a bit scruffy. We have, anyway, since weeded the grass growing between the paving and tidied up. I think Gail's comment about unkept grounds reflects our differing attitudes to garden presentation. We very deliberately do not want an over manicured suburban garden and our emphasis has been on providing romantic outside seating for our guests (there are four areas) and to create a garden that is a haven for wildlife which is what other guests seem to like. Recent reviews seem to bear this out: '.. cottage, embedded in a magic garden full of secret paths and picture-perfect vantage points...' Rebecca '...and the garden is idyllic.' Wendy 'The house is lovely..... The garden is beautiful with lots of outdoor seating for meals in the garden' George See below for full reviews. We think the photographs in our listing give a good representation of what to expect so guests expecting formal gardens, parterres and topiary will be disappointed!!

Roderick and Claire are excellent hosts! They were flexible with our late check-in time, quick to resolve any needs we had, and extremely helpful while still giving us plenty of privacy. The cottage itself is beautiful - comfortable, cozy and with a very well-equipped kitchen. We were perfectly warm despite the somewhat chilly weather, and found plenty to do during the week thanks in no small part to the detailed write-up of towns, pubs and attractions in the surrounding area that was provided. A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing place to spend a week, though we would've been happy to stay a month! Highly recommended!

Really great place to stay. We just loved the whole experience of the lovely cottage, beautiful garden, fantastic surroundings and lovely walks. Claire and Roderick were lovely hosts, providing us with lots of information about the locality, places to visit and great pubs.

We know Blythburgh and its surroundings well - a beutiful area so long as you don't require hills! This accomodation is a gem. Its's delightfully appointed functionally and artistically. If you love books, you could spend months here - there are masses to choose from! Roderick and Claire are very welcoming and easy-going. Accomodation is ideal for a couple. Although a family of 4 could stay here, the children would need to be late Junior or Senior age because of the temporary bed location, and the space would then be a bit cramped. The near-spiral stairs to the bedroom & bathroom are fairly steep, so a reasonable level of agility is required.

Wonderfully cosy cottage with an eclectic and very interesting selection of books - set in an amazing garden. Lovely peace and quiet for a few days. Roderick and Claire were extremely welcoming and helpful hosts.

This is a great property, quiet and secluded but near the coast and main roads too, with a well stocked village shop very close by. The property has everything you need for your stay and the owners were friendly, welcoming and provided clear directions, instructions etc ahead of arrival. The property is an annexe to the main house but I felt I had my own private space to enjoy amidst a most beautiful garden. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again.

This was our third visit to this lovely cottage. It's beautifully presented with a lovely garden. If you are a dog owner, literally across the road is a path which leads to a nature reserve with picturesque walks along the salt marshes and the old railway line. It's a bird spotters paradise. The cottage is really well located to explore Suffolk.

Claire is a designer, mostly scenery and costumes for theatre but also the occasional interior and garden. Roderick was a theatre production manager when we met but now builds kitchens and bathrooms and other things such as building and plumbing water features.
