A lovely homely stay
Richard and Rosemary could not have made us feel more welcome. My friend and I wanted a break away from the rat race and wanted to enjoy a venue with character. We actually felt like we were visiting friends rather than staying in a generic, bland hotel. Breakfast was lovely with all the trimmings and the location was only 2.5 miles from Dunwich beach. Both mornings we gor uo early to watch the sunrise. It was a very enjoyable stay.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Mill house.A traditional B&B in a beautiful house with a very warm welcome from our hosts.So well positioned between Southwold and Aldeburgh and within walking distance of Dunwich beach and beautiful walks on the Heath.Our hosts were very helpful with knowledge on where to go,what to see and the best places to eat after a fantastic full english breakfast before heading out for the day!A very quiet and peaceful village tucked away from the busier coastal towns but still not far to drive for a refreshing dip or retail therapy! We would definitely stay here again and look forward to returning to this beautiful Suffolk coastline to stay with Richard and Rosie.

The property is situated adjacent to Westleton Heath so you can walk out of the back garden straight onto the heath and then on to Dunwich or Minsmere. The garden is also beautiful just to sit and relax in.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
House and grounds stunning, the dogs delightful. Bed clean and comfortable but no tv/radio/clock, the tea tray sadly lacking in anything that cried welcome, and bathroom odd - used bar of soap on bath rack - yuk!! There is nothing online to indicate that this is not a hotel but a B&B of the 50s type which leaves one unprepared for the lack of niceties usually afforded one staying at accommodation in this price bracket. The House Rules notice above the bed emphasise access times - front door locked 10.00am-5.00pm, guests to be in by 10.30pm - no key to gain access allowed - there was no key to my room either. I have dietary problems so eat very little for breakfast - even so, the food provided was not commensurate with the price bracket. Altogether a very disappointing experience - I had planned to stay 3 days but left after 2. I have been in the hospitality business for many years and feel that, even if this IS a B&B in a private house, it is still a business that provides an income - therefore, you MUST give value for money - Mill House most definitely doesn't.

Hidden gem
In a word, superb! A beautiful 14th Century building with a simply gorgeous garden. A stones throw from Minsmere and Dunwich. Westleton itself is a well run and picture postcard village served by two excellent pubs. It is so quiet, i woke each morning to the cry of a peacock. Possibly the best nights sleep i have had outside my own house. Lovely couple that do a great job, truly a special spot which for those looking for a get away couldnt be better.
