Idyllic Loom & Weavers Cottage in private road/central/off common/garage/parking - Loom No 6 (Sleeps 4, 2 Bedrooms)

Overview

Property

Updated: 09-Dec-2016
Cottages in Southwold, Suffolk, (ENG)Loom no6 / Weavers no5 - Very Peaceful, Tucked Away Position, 10 Mins To The Beach, 2-5 Mins To All Amenities, Own Garag

Loom Cottage is easily accessed from The High Street, past the Blythe Hotel (after crossing Mights Bridge), then turning right at John Bennett's Architect's shop straight into Spinners Lane. At the end of Spinners Lane, lies 'Rope Walk' where rope and fishing net twine was made in the mid 19th century.There are 2 semi detached white-washed cottages (can be booked as a pair or on their own) on the right as you enter the Lane, and Loom Cottage is the furthest cottage, it is compact and comfortable, with a real 'home to home' feel. There is an outside area to the front of the property, where it is perfect to sit and watch the world go by, and many homely additions, including a really good book and dvd collection. We welcome dogs (for a small additional charge), on the proviso they stay downstairs! The property is very old, but it has been sympathetically updated, with comfy furnishings. Spinners Lane has only 7 other properties, and the garage is just 15 metres down the Lane. There is a small back yard, no 5 has access across the rear of the property. The pubs, shops and beach are all within 10 mins walk away, fish & chip shop 2 mins walk! The cottages can be booked individually or as a pair, and throughout the year/short breaks/ weekends etc (although these would be mainly out of season). Weavers Cottage (nearest to you in the picture) is very similar (see pictures) and it's hard to choose between the two! The garage for Loom is clearly marked, and in the lane and there is parking in the lane (subject to availability) for Weavers occupants. We always manage to park in the lane! It is always possible to load and unload right outside the cottages, which is very convenient. There is additional free parking on the common, just 2 mins walk away! There is a bed settee so cottage can sleep 6 at a push...

About the Owner

For generations, my family have had connections with Southwold and my grandmother retired to Walberswick. It was my dream to live in Southwold one day and my husband Steve and I moved to St George's Square, Reydon in 2015 from Warlingham, in Surrey! We both worked in nearby (the joy!) Croydon and decided (practically on a whim) to chuck it all in and manage Loom and Weavers Cottage ourselves! It has proved a great decision! We go back to London often as we have friends and family there, but not for a moment do we regret giving up our full time jobs. We keep busy because we are far too young to actually retire! We eat better, love the walks, the people and everything about Southwold; the pier, the fish & chips (Marks' & Mrs T's), The Electric Picture Palace, The Crown, The Swan (Sunday roast in the bar), Southwold Common, the marshes (walks and views), the harbour, the surrounding areas; Walberswick, Minsmere, Snape, Beccles, Norwich and (further) Woodbridge, the locals, Adnams, the beach huts, the lovely grand houses, the smaller quirky/quaint houses. I even love the wind and the weather now..less rain than our other coasts, hence 'the sunshine coast' tag.

Owner's Response: Thanks Andrew, Hope to see you again next year, and thanks for writing this review! Personally, I love the holidaymakers (and the locals). I like the 'buzz' of the numbers, and I guess I was a 'weekender' myself once! Food is certainly great everywhere, we are truly spoiled in this regard!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage in an ideal location, we were within walking distance of everything. The owners were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. When (not if) we return we will be sure to contact Kerry, the cottage is just lovely and has everything you could possibly need from kitchen utensils to games and DVD's.

Thank you for letting us stay.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our second family visit to Loom Cottage with our dog Harry. It remains as wonderful as ever, for Harry it's perfect with the common being two minutes walk away. Southwold is so dog friendly - there are loads of walks! However if you haven't got a four legged friend the cottage has no evidence of their stay. Southwold itself is amazing although part of me want to say different so as to keep it secret! You would not regret visiting Loom Cottage its clean, cosy and comfortable. Nearly every cooking utensil, pot, pan etc is supplied! Go and enjoy!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, you are indeed lovely people! And so is Harry ( who I've heard has acquired a taste for the local brew)! You are welcome whenever you like! Thanks so much for the 5 stars! A great start to the ( nearly) new year!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Loom cottage is very smart and tidy and has several little touches that make you feel welcome and cared for. The Christmas decorations were up, there are shampoos etc in the bathroom, milk and tea ready for you and it is very spick and span. Great location near the centre of Southwold which is a lovely seaside village to visit and close to the common for exercising the dog. it is a very nice place to stay for a few days and all the admin relating to the cottage was completed in a professional and friendly manner.

Southwold's Finest!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for clean, comfortable, cosy single or pair of cottages in a great location look no further. Loom and Weaver's cottages are more like homes than rental cottages and a great deal of thought and effort has been put in by the owners who did all they possibly could to ensure our stay was memorable for all the right reasons.

We arrived on a cold day to two warm cottages delightfully decorated for the Christmas period. Everything was in full working order with easy to follow instructions where necessary. All fixtures, fittings, bedding, utensils, crockery etc. were in excellent condition and of good quality; the sort of things you would buy to equip your own home with.

Communication with the owners was excellent from start to finish. The combination of cottages, location and owners is a winning one and I can recommend all to you. We will return, as many others have said and done before us. There can be no better recommendation.

Location

From the Owner

I never thought we could buy a property in Southwold, but with much 'shuffling of finances' I persuaded my husband it would be a perfect place to unwind, away from the stresses of normal life. I have a real family connection with the area, and the journey from London was another factor, which meant that within 2 1/2 hours we could be in another world...I love the landscape of Suffolk, the beautiful light and 'big' skies, plus the lovely areas for walking. Southwold boasts excellent cuisine, bijou shops, has a Summer theatre and a 'grandness' about it, but it is also completely unspoilt, with a real 'old world' charm. There is much to enjoy in nearby Aldeburgh, Snape is ideal for music lovers, Minsmere is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and there's always a sup of Adnams !!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : at 450 Metres Nearest Golf : at 400 Metres Nearest Restaurant : at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Southwold at 600 Metres Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

The area is a prolific bird watching spot (visit Minsmere Nature Reserve), there are cultural events held at Aldeburgh, and the area is swamped with literary and music festivals. Southwold has a Summer theatre, Snape is a haven for music lovers. Norwich is a 30 min drive, with an excellent shopping centre. Woodbridge is a charming town, beautifully positioned on the river. See 'the house in the sky' at nearby Thorpeness. Beccles and Saxmundham (a historic market town) are worthy of a visit. Walberswick is a lovely village, with two good pubs with lovely gardens. Dunwich (which boasts a small museum) has some lovely sights. It's a great area for walking and cycling.

Coast/Beach:

Maximum 10 minute walk to the beach and pier, Southwold has a lovely sandy beach, famous for it's colourful beach huts and award winning quirky pier. In recent years the pier was voted 'Pier of The Year' by Coast magazine, well worth a visit. There is a boating lake right near the pier, and also more traditional amusements.. Neighbouring Walberswick also has a lovely, natural beach and is also home to the annual crabbing competition. Check out the 'Voyager' boat trips from the harbour...

Travel:

Car not necessary if staying in Southwold/Reydon.

The nearest airport is Stanstead, approx 1hr 15 mins.

Nearest Railway Station, Darsham/Halesworth.

Distances:

Beccles...20 mins drive, Dunwich.. approx 6 miles (20 mins drive).

Walberswick..(15 mins drive), approx 6 miles in car/can walk over the bridge, just 10 mins walk/or ferry from the harbour.

Dunwich 6 miles

Aldeburgh..13 miles

Norwich 20 miles

Further Details:

Southwold has a Tesco Express(open late), and a Co-op Supermarket.

There are numerous boutiques, restaurants, tea shops, antique shops, two really good hotels, and many b & b's. There is an Indian takeaway, several art galleries, a quality deli, a renowned butchers, a bakers, Coffee Shops, and several newsagents, including Smith's. There is a unique 'Picture Palace' and a Summer Theatre season. If you're a 'foodie' then there is The Swan Hotel for fine dining (the Sunday roast was listed in The Sunday Times top 30 in England) and The Crown. You can eat in the bar in The Swan in you prefer a more informal setting, and The Crown is child friendly...both are cheaper than London prices. The Nelson provides a good standard of pub food, and is very popular, and the fish and chip shop does a roaring trade! The Pier will soon be revamped and an 'Art Deco' style hotel built at the front..with lovely terraces to sit out and enjoy a tipple!

Facilities

From the Owner

We bought both Cottages for the location,(Weavers first 14 years ago) and have spent many happy holidays with numerous family members since. It's amazing how many people fit into each front room for a get-together (10 last year!). We chose this area because it's so central, but 'far from the madding crowd' and not right 'on the road'. I've been visiting Southwold all my life but never knew Spinners Lane existed, it's hidden from the main road and blissfully quiet, with the tranquillity of the common on the doorstep. Cottages are compact, and the rooms are well-proportioned, so four people can comfortably enjoy their stay.The garage(Loom) and the parking availability for both are a real asset. We also love the seated areas at the front, a great vantage point to watch the world go by..!
