“This B&B is a hidden gem - and there is icing on the cake !”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Room 2 - over looks the garden and is so quiet.

If you are looking for an excellent B&B at very reasonable rates, then Mill House, Thorpe Le Soken, Essex is to be highly recommended. We have stayed there on numerous occasions while visiting various friends in the area.
Invariably the high standards and warm welcome from Keith the owner remain the same; from the spacious, well appointed rooms of his charming Georgian house, to his excellent Aga cooked breakfasts, which seem to appear effortlessly, served in the lovely dining room. Nothing seems to be too much trouble, either with breakfast requirements, or generally, with Keith offering any help that might be needed.
Mill House is located in Thorpe high street so is easy to find, and has the benefit of private parking at the rear. The B&B is also a great base for exploring the surrounding area, from the immaculate beaches of Frinton, Walton and Clacton to ‘Constable’ country round Dedham and Flatford.

Room Tip: Kieth only has two letting rooms (both ensuite), the room at the back is quieter and cosy, while the...

I stayed here in August while visiting my boyfriend's family in the village. It is a really lovely B&B, Keith was very welcoming and provided an excellent breakfast. The room was clean and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and it provided a welcome break from a house full of people for a wedding!

Keith was most welcoming and serves an excellent breakfast. Altogether a very comfortable and clean B&B which if full of "old world" charm in the centre of Thorpe le Soken. Take a walk up Mill Lane to see the old mill.

We stayed at Mill House recently for two nights and enjoyed our stay very much. We had a pleasant double room overlooking the very pretty garden. Our host, Keith, was lovely - very hospitable and cooked a really great breakfast. The room and shower room were very clean and provided all we needed for a comfortable stay. All in all, we were very impressed - many thanks Keith!
