"Wonderful stay at Loom Cottage"
My wife and I and our labradoodle puppy stayed in the most glorious July week in Loom Cottage. The cottage was clean and ready for us on arrival with many nice touches, like washing up liquid, salt an… More
Thanks so much for this review, so glad you all enjoyed yourselves! It's great that The Black Olive Deli(on The High Street) & The Smokehouse (near the harbour) get a mention, as they are really good additions to Southwold. The Adnams Shop also stocks a great selection of beers/ales to wash down all the yummy food! I'm hoping to see you again sometime, and thank you for the lovely comments, it is fantastic to hear that you had a wonderful stay, and I'm really happy the sun stayed out! Hoorah!

Thank you so much for this brilliant review, it's says everything in a brief statement. So very glad you all enjoyed your stay, and I am so happy you loved the location and Loom Cottage. I really do think the location is ideal for anybody because it is so near to everything but very private. We love it because it's just so restful and handy for the common and lovely walks...as you said, perfect for our four legged friends! I'm always updating the DVD collection, so I'm glad it was useful and thanks so much for mentioning it.I would love to see you all again sometime, and thanks again for these kind words!

"Peter, Janet and Brook (the dog!)"
We wanted to say thank you to Kerry for a wonderful few days here. The cottage is delightful and so welcoming when you walk through the door. Despite the February weather being cold and windy, we were… More
I had the pleasure of meeting Peter, Janet and Brook and I'm so glad they enjoyed their stay. I am very pleased that the communication/booking process got a mention as I do like to provide an efficient service! We really want people to feel at home and enjoy their holiday, and it makes my day to receive such positive feedback. Brook was very well behaved and didn't seem too bothered about the weather, he still got lots of walkies! It's fantastic to get such a great review, and I would be delighted to welcome these lovely people (and of course, Brook) again! I do agree about 'The Nelson' it's really popular and very traditional.

My husband and I were actually staying next door at the same time so we had the pleasure of meeting this lovely couple (we were trying to stay incognito as we didn't want to be intrusive but they realized it was us)! It's lovely to receive a review like this, it's informative as well as so appreciative! So glad you had a great holiday, and thank you so much for these comments! It is true, Loom Cottage is loved, and I'm so glad it shows!It's also great that the service beforehand was mentioned, as I do try to be as helpful as possible.We just want everybody to have the best holiday possible!

"Charming, cosy cottage in great location"
Loom Cottage is a real 'home from home'. Very well appointed and ultra convenient for town, common and beach. Very clean with all mod cons. Downstairs bathroom can be a little inconvenient a… More
It's lovely to receive a review like this, it does highlight the convenience of the location really well! It's also great that the cleanliness was mentioned, as often these points go unmentioned unless it's a negative! I'll pass it on to the housekeeper, she will be pleased her good work is noticed! Downstairs bathroom cannot be helped I'm afraid but on the other hand, it saves going upstairs during the day! I must say We are so lucky to get such lovely, appreciative guests...so thank you all for the kind words! If I win the lottery I promise I will install an 'en suite' upstairs!

"Lovely cottage in a lovely part of the world."
We've stayed in many cottages / villas and Loom Cottage is as good as any. Comfortable and cosy, well equipped and tucked away from the main road. We thought the location was ideal, sufficiently… More
Thank you so much for your comments, I'm so glad you enjoyed the week. I know there were loads of events over the Jubilee, and the weather was much better than in London so I'm sure it was a special week! I'm really pleased the location was perfect for you, we think it's a great spot and yes, perfectly summed up as ' a lovely part of the world!' I would also like to say that I love the rapport with the guests, and I think I am lucky to have so many lovely people stay in Loom Cottage!!!!!!!!!!!!!Thanks again for your kind words.

"Quiet yet convenient. Very comfortable."
Situated just off the High Street in a tucked away position, this compact cottage is well appointed. Room sizes are on the small side, especially the kitchen but overall will meet the needs of most. There were four of us and three dogs and we managed!
Thanks very much for this review, and for the 'well appointed' comment, I'm also very pleased you found the cottage very comfortable. Yes, kitchen is quite small but nobody has ever passed comment before so(as you stated) it can't be too much of a problem!. It's rather like myself, small but perfectly formed (joke)! I do think all the other rooms are a fair size, and of good proportions, certainly Loom Cottage compares well with other 2 bed cottages we've stayed in/looked at/ for general space/regular features etc. It must have been cosy with 4 adults and 3 dogs! I'm really glad you all enjoyed yourselves and I hope you visit us again! As a matter of interest not so long ago ( about 20 years) a family of nine(yes, nine!) lived in Loom Cottage... now that must have been a challenge!

"Cosy, cosy, cosy"
Absolutely perfect location, just off the common and High Street, 3 mins to the fish and chip shop, beach not only 10 mins. This meant that we had the best of both worlds, complete peace and silence at night and yet right in the centre of town. Really useful to have parking as well! Cottage really comfortable, we all liked the furnishings, it looked like somewhere you could actually live, and there was obviously a lot of thought put into the decor. I thought the cottage was very good value considering the quality, and we loved sitting outside and watching the world go by, it was all so relaxing. The information guide was really useful, we went to The Swan ( the bar) for Sunday roast ( ask for roast beef if you like it even if it's not on the menu ) and had a cracking meal, a bit pricey but worth it....absolutely delicious! Can't wait to go again, next time for a week.....booking was really easy as well, all very efficient!
Thank you for these kind words, I do agree with the heading! It is really cosy. The beach is less than 10 mins walk, and it is in a great location. I love the fish and chips, lovely crispy batter and proper chips..yum, yum! We do try to keep the cottage in good order, downstairs was decorated this year and next year (hopefully) we'll do upstairs. We love sitting outside at the front watching the world go by, just generally relaxing! Hopefully we'll see you again soon, almost all of our visitors come back!
