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

Response from 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. …

This beautiful, comfortable cottage at Mill End is a real gem. Roderick & Claire really live up to their name as 'Superhosts', providing detailed notes about local places to eat/shop/directions to find the cottage beforehand. And very detailed notes (which on our short stay I did…

We loved it! The communication was great (especially considering the fact that the hosts were away and that we decided on extremely short notice to book, same day), descriptions for finding our way to the house and check-in were easy too. The garden was indeed magical! We loved B…

Roderick and Claire were very responsive prior to our stay informing us of the location and local tips. It's location is ideal and the cottage was very relaxing after a long day of being at the beach. We didn't get to really use the garden as much as we'd liked as there were too …

Superb holiday cottage. Excellent location for exploring the lovely Suffolk coast and countryside. Great walks/ cycle rides direct from the cottage.

A pretty, private escape from it all and yet easily accessible by road to beaches and local sights. Perfect for two and for your dog. Lovely people who are on site if you need them.
