The East Anglia region

Southwold is situated on The East Suffolk Heritage Coast, and is part of East Anglia. Both have preserved much of their unspoilt character, rural landscape and traditions.

The terrain in the region is quite flat, and renowned for the quality of light, hence being a popular area for artists.

The area is also among the driest in the UK, hence the tag 'The Sunshine Coast', and both Southwold and Walberswick have lovely sandy beaches. There are dog friendly beaches accessible all year and there are lovely walks, beautiful sights and an abundance of bird life in this area.

The town is famous for it's 'old world charm and style', it's beach,busy harbour, cliff top cannons, Lighthouse,award winning Pier, Parish Church (considered to be one of the finest of it's kind ) and is the home of Adnams Brewery.

"Delightful cosy cottage"

We chose Loom Cottage for a long weekend in Southwold. It worked out almost half the price of b&b and you get the whole place. Very well equipped and comfortable. Centrally located with all ameneties… More

Thank you so much Mark, I really appreciate this review. I'm so glad you made use of the list I sent you (sometimes I wonder if people feel a bit overloaded with all the information) and that you visited The Pier (what fun it is) and went on The Brewery Tour. I'd recommend that to everybody (over 18) because not only is it interesting but you get to do lots of tasting! I'm also really glad that you enjoyed 'Coasters' and the rest of the weekend as well. All in all (to use your words)this is a delightful review! Please do come and visit us again..

"Lovely cottage, excellent location"

A lovely, well positioned cottage, very close to Southwold town centre, beach and harbour. Very well equipped.… More

I would like to thank this wonderful guest for this lovely review, it manages to say a great deal whilst being very economical with words. It's great that this answers most of the questions guests ask; how far is the beach/town centre etc? Southwold is such a great place to visit because it has an year round appeal, although quieter out of season it is always full of life! In fact, many people prefer these times of year. Loom Cottage always provides a cosy base to explore from!!!

"Lovely cottage, perfect location"

This cottage is in a perfect spot, very quiet side street right next to the common, with the shops and beach only a few minutes walk away. The cottage is very clean, warm and well equipped, including… More

Thank you so much! A lovely, concise review. Glad you had a good time, we would love to see you again! The little details are so important, and again, so pleased you appreciated the 'nice touches'. I love it when our guests feel at home, hence up to date DVDs and a good selection of books! Thank you for these kind words, and for being such lovely guests.

"Fantastic Cosy Cottage In Excellent Location - Thoroughly Recommended"

Spent a wonderful two nights at Loom Cottage in early December for a last minute getaway. The cottage is in a great location, right at the top of the High Street and near to the common but tucked away… More

Well, thank you so much for this informative review. It's lovely to know that you would happily return, and thank you for such positive feedback! We would love to welcome you again!
It's a good point about the cottage being handy for the bus stop, and we are so glad our guests love the location as we think it's perfect!
Hmm...we have actually provided towels when specially requested previously and if we'd have known about the special(travelling light) circumstances in this instance, we would have. We have certainly provided them when customers have been in dire straits (left them at home) and not charged for the service. However, people normally are quite happy to bring their own towels and you would be surprised what some people do with the towels when provided (think dogs/tanning lotion/sand/mud/make up etc)! My housekeeper has specifically asked me not to provide towels on a regular basis!Also, I haven't put my short break charges up for over 2 years, and a good cleaning service/laundry etc prove very expensive, and the additional cost would have to be a consideration.
We've always found the shower fine,and I wash my hair without issue. However, I'm always looking for ways to improve so your comments are welcome! However, in case anybody is getting confused, the bath is not sloping, it is perfectly flat!
Southwold is now an 'all year round' destination and lots of our visitors enjoy early/end of year trips. As you said, these can be good value for money and really worthwhile! A couple (or more) of nights by the seaside can be such a welcome tonic!
Thank you again for such a fantastic review! It is a joy to be thoroughly recommended by yourself! Hoorah!

I was very happy to meet this lovely visitor who came to actually say 'hello and thanks' to me personally whilst I was in Southwold! What a lovely gesture! I would like to say that I really appreciate this review and such high praise as well, plus I enjoyed all the banter between us!It's great to meet a fellow Southwold lover and I can only say that my visitors deserve an award for 'best cottage visitors in Southwold.'It certainly is a great compliment to say that I'm caring, and I must say it's true so far as I do really do my best to provide a good service and to deliver the best possible holiday experience! If the guests are happy, then so am I! Thank you so much and hopefully we'll see you again in the not so distant future!

It's easy to be friendly when dealing with such nice people, but I really appreciate the fact that you mentioned I was prompt!I like to try everything I can to contribute to the whole holiday feeling, even if it's just paying attention to the small things that might make life easier!

"2nd visit and just as wonderful!"

We stayed for a week the 2nd year running at Loom Cottage and it was just as wonderful as before. It really felt like coming home. The cottage was immaculately presented and very clean and tidy. As… More

Gosh, thank you! I am truly grateful for such a stomping review, (this lovely couple have fallen in love with Southwold, just as I did)! It's great that this time you both tried The Nelson (won Evening Standard Best Pub Award a few years back) and Sutherland House, which is a great place to go for a special evening!
I am so happy Loom Cottage has come up trumps for you both, it is my absolute pleasure to share this happy place with you!
Thank you so much both of you!I'm already looking forward to your next visit!

"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!

"Lovely Loom"

Loom Cottage is quite small but perfectly formed! It's homely, comfortable, warm and extremely well equipped. We certainly found everything we needed in the kitchen and made use of the excellent … More

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 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! Loving the title as well!! I must say I am so fortunate to have so many lovely customers!!!

"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.
