I booked the Mill House B&B for a business trip haveing previously stayed in Clacton-on-Sea and been very disappointed and I must admit was nervous. However this is truely a hidden gem and I was delighted with what I found. It is really easy to find, being directly on the high street, and down a little lane at the back is the parking area. Keith the owner came out to great me and took me straight into the wonderful warm kitchen - which was very welcoming after a 5 hour drive. I stayed in room 2 which was spotlessly clean, and well equiped. It faced over the back garden with a lovely big window. I had a very peaceful sleep and was woken to the cooing of pigeons. The small but very clean bathroom provided a lovely shower and then came a most fantastic full english breakfast - cooked on the aga, in a very pleasently decorated dinning room. Keith is an excellent cook, it was perfect. This really is a little gem and next time I visit my supplier - I shall certainly booking in plenty of time to make sure I get a room.
