“Lovely Loom”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

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 DVD collection in the evenings.
As for the location - it couldn't be better. The lane is very quiet, yet just a minute or two from the High Street and right on the doorstep of Southwold Common (which our cocker spaniel particularly appreciated!)
Kerry is very helpful and informative. All in all, a great place to stay.

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

“Peter, Janet and Brook (the dog!)”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

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 snug and warm here! There are so many nice touches and the cottage is so amazingly well equipped. A lot of thought and effort has gone into making this a delightful home-from-home holiday cottage. It is a great base to explore beautiful Southwold being so central to the town but at the same time, is so quiet and peaceful being situated in a quiet no through road only 50 yards from the common (The latter is great for popping the dog out last thing at night!).
So much to enjoy here in Southwold without having to get the car out. (Garage parking comes as part of the package by the way). Lots of great shops, pubs and restaurants all a short stroll away. Do visit The Lord Nelson on the sea front. A 'real pub' that has great views, great atmosphere (really buzzy) and of course, fabulous food and drink.
The surrounding area has some great walks and you should do the one to lovely Walberswick across the river. Stop at The Harbour Inn at Blackshore on the way for fantastic fish and chips!
We loved Loom Cottage and and did not want to go home. Hopefully we will be back to the cottage and this lovely part of Suffolk that we have become so fond of over the years.

P.S. Cannot fault Kerry for excellent communication and commitment to making your stay so pleasurable and relaxing . It was a pleasure to meet you there also. Thank you once again for all your thought and kindness.

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.

Just home from this cottage and loved it, has everything you could possibly want. For this time of year cottage was warm and cosy, but summer would be just as good. Location brilliant and Southwold wonderful. For dogs perfect place to visit Harry had wonderful time. If you want to visit Southwold I could not recommend this cottage highly enough and you would certainly not be disappointed!! Excellent service from owner - thank you

“One of the best holidays ever - wonderful cottage!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Myself and my husband stayed at Loom Cottage last week and it was one of the best holidays we've ever had in this country. The weather was fantastic which certainly helped and the cottage was gorgeous. From the moment I booked the cottage back in January everything was dealt with very professionally and the owner was extremely helpful and provided all the information you could possibly need. The cottage itself was exceptionally clean and well presented with lots of little extra personal touches which made the cottage feel even more cosy. You can tell that this cottage is loved and well cared for. The location is fantastic - it is in a quiet lane with no through-traffic, and at the far end of the lane is access to the golf course and fields which takes you to the estuary - it is a lovely short walk and there is a good pub at the end of the walk (The Harbour Inn). The other end of the lane is the start of the high street, so you are literally only a minute from all the shops and restaurants and only 7mins to the beach! My husband and I had planned to go walking every day and took all our wet weather gear with us only to find that we had a mini-heat wave so spent the entire week on the beach! We will definitely be booking for next year when we will be less lazy and do some of the Adnams Pub Walks to walk off all the good food we consume!

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”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

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 at night but curtails the need to 'go'. All in all a very pleasant stay in a lovely area of Suffolk. Would return in future.

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!

“Cosy & Comfortable”
Reviewed 31 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We've been renting houses in Southwold for many years, but this was our first visit to Loom Cottage - and won't be our last. This is a very cosy and comfortable cottage situated in a small and quiet private road just a couple of minutes' walk from the High Street in one direction and Southwold Common in the other.

The cottage is thoughtfully furnished and well equipped, with an extensive library of books and DVDs in case of a rainy day.

“Lovely cottage in a lovely part of the world.”
Reviewed 15 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

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 placed away from the seafront to avoid any noise (not that there was any) and close enough to enjoy an evening stroll without traipsing for miles before getting anywhere. Having a garage to park the car was a bonus.
We had a terrific week.

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.
