About the property


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 Kerry Pace

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.

Kerry Pace purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Kerry Pace chose Suffolk

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 !!

What makes this cottage unique

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..!

Clean, cosy and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 days at Weavers Cottage and found it a perfect base for our stay in lovely Southwold. Only a few minutes walk from all the attractions of the town, the cottage has the added bonus of access down the lane straight on to the common and into the countryside. It's well-equipped and warm with comfy beds, and although the wifi is a bit ropey, we enjoyed the range of DVDs on offer. Kerry the owner was very friendly and helpful at all stages of the booking. Highly recommended, as it is also great value for money.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jane for taking the time to write this review. Not quite top marks ( I love my 5 stars I'm afraid! ) but lots of positive comments, which is great! It may be that the internet was playing up that week as we have never had any negative feedback before.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time that I had been to Southwold and also the first time I had been away for Christmas in the UK with my Mum and our two small dogs. The cottage is as described, very cosy and we felt at home straight away. Its location is fantastic with being at the beginning of the High Street and so close to the Common with a lovely stroll through the High Street to the Beach. A nice touch was the Christmas Hamper that we were left with some yummy contents which was so unexpected. A special thanks also for all my questions being answered so promptly by Kerry prior to our stay. We will definitely be returning again, hopefully in the not too distant future!

We would love to see you again, and thanks so much for taking the trouble to write this review. Have a fantastic 2015!

Delivers on all levels

  • 5 of 5

For many years we have taken a weeks holiday in Scotland - same resort same accommodation. We tend to judge all uk holidays by the high standards we enjoy in Scotland, so I was a little unsure what Southwold would bring. This our first visit to suffolk, town and weavers cottage chosen at random. What a revelation, a lovely restful spot with good shops, restaurants and walks. Weavers cottage is in a perfect spot, and delivered everything promised. This truly is a home from home and Kerry we thank you for giving us the opportunity of taking such a delightful weeks holiday. If the cottage remains available we will make every effort to return again and again.

Owner's Response: Dennis, thank you so much for this comprehensive review. I am so glad you and the family enjoyed your 'random' holiday! I enjoyed hearing about your culinary delights (you needed a walk to work off such treats no doubt), and it's great to hear that you may return! It would be lovely to welcome you and Sheena back sometime! Thank you so much for your custom, and 'hoorah' for the 5 stars!!! We love Southwold and I want all my guests to feel the same way.....

Magical Week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our Jack Russell have just returned from a magical week at Weavers. We could not believe our luck with the location of the cottage, a stones throw from the common and the Adnams shop what heaven. The cottage is very well equipped with a fantastic dvd selection. Southwold is a wonderful friendly place and if you are a golfer the course on the common is friendly and fun to play. Kerry was extremely helpful with useful information and very nice and easy to deal with. To crown it all we had fantastic weather. I cannot recommend this lovely cottage and Southwold enough.

Owner's Response: Thank you! This is a lovely review, and I am so lucky to have such fantastic guests! I really appreciate your comments, and the best thing is that you had a great holiday in 'Weavers Cottage' as that's what it's all about! Yes, I know we 'bang on' about it but I would challenge anybody to find a better location in Southwold, it has such a 'holiday feel' about it, and I'm so pleased doggie had fun as well (I love Jack Russells).We've been so lucky with the weather, and that makes two great Summers in a row! I'm also glad that the golf course got a mention, (especially as it's so near the cottage), I'm not a golfer myself (luckily for the passing public!) but I hear it's a nice course. Hoorah!!!!! I love the 5 stars, and thank you my lovely guests for making my day! You will always be welcome!!!!!!!!!
