“2nd visit and just as wonderful!”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

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 soon as we arrived my husband announced that he wants to go again next year! The cottage is in a very quiet location with ZERO traffic noise - the only thing that wakes you up in the morning are the seagulls and to be honest, after the hustle and bustle of London that's a nice wake-up call! For more information on the cottage and location see my previous review - I really can't fault it.

This year we found the Lord Nelson pub - the food there is wonderful! It's only a small pub so can get a little rammed but well worth the wait for food. We also went to Sutherland House to celebrate my husband's birthday - it was a wonderful evening. It's a little on the pricey side in comparison to the pubs, but good value in comparison to restaurants of the same quality in London.

I can't recommend Loom cottage and Southwold enough - the only problem is I never want to leave!

Thank you Kerry and we look forward to another visit same time next year!

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”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

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 and pepper etc all available. We rarely used the car, and because its big didn't park on the lane but used the Common which was no problem.

The shops and delis are wonderful and diverted our plans to cook, check out the Black Olive deli for salads and adventurous pies and Scotch eggs and the Smokehouse at the harbour for great seafood.

We walked, sat on the beach and on the front and generally enjoyed the cottage and ambiance of Southwold. Great property, great location and wonderful holiday!

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”
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
