From the owner

'Weavers Cottage' is a very comfortable well furnished cottage, a well appointed property situated in a perfect spot, off the common and yet very central to all amenities. It has been furnished with great attention to detail, as we like to live in comfort!

Outside space at the front (with table and chairs) so your party can sit and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a drink (or fish and chips), cup of tea etc.. The cottages have a real 'holiday feel' about them because of the location, and yet are very homely.

There is parking (subject to availability) but we and our guests never generally have a problem parking in the lane, and there is always additional (free) parking on the common nearby which is 2 mins walk away and directly accessed on foot via Spinners Lane. It is always easy to unload/load your luggage right outside the property as Spinners Lane is a no through road which is tucked away and unknown to the majority of people! It's really an idyllic spot/great for dogs and anybody who loves a walk on your doorstep! It's handy to walk from here over to Walberswick (over the bridge or take the one man/woman driven ferry) or to the harbour.

The living room is very comfortable, with adequate seating for 7 (we've managed 12!) flat screen TV, Blu ray DVD player and a very comprehensive selection of books and DVDs to suit all tastes. If you wish to accommodate extra bodies (discuss beforehand, we would recommend 4 persons max for comfort but we can provide a comfy double roll up mattress for an occasional extra 'body'.) The kitchen is well stocked, we have a larder fridge but we also have an ice making machine (much quicker than making ice in the freezer)! There is a small enclosed area at the back of the property and visitors are allowed access over the rear of no 6. All our guests remark upon the location, it really is perfect because you have the best of both worlds/peace and quiet when you want it and yet the convenience of being just a couple of minutes away from the Fish & Chip Shop, less than 5 minutes walk to the High Street-all Shop/pubs/restaurants/the beach is 7 mins walk away. Read the reviews for both Loom and Weavers (next door to each other) to gain an insight.....we have people who return year after year. They love it almost as much as we do! It is also possible to rent both cottages at once for a family gathering which allows a bit more privacy than just one big house! Please note: Travel Cot and stair gate available (please ask) which we can provide free of charge.

Interaction with guest

We have a Key Box, so guests have total privacy and independence. However, we are just up the road, so we are always on hand if we are needed/in the event of an emergency/ and we are always happy to help/will answer any query at whatever time! We are very approachable, so we have struck up some friendly relationships over the years but ultimately, we are not the interfering kind so we leave our guests in peace!
