Interaction with guests
We have a Key Box, so guests have total independence if they choose, and we will leave them to enjoy their holiday in total peace. However, we live just up the road so we can be on hand in the event of any emergency/if our guests need us. We sometimes bump into our guests on changeovers and we do have some special customers who we have ' shared a sup' of something liquid with on the odd occasion!

A home from home in a quiet lane only yards from the town centre. Warm on those chilly days and well equipped, what more could you want? We would stay again.

This cottage is amazing - spotlessly clean, well equipped and a great location to explore Southwold. It even has parking for 2 cars (one in a garage). The owners were so friendly and the communication with them was brilliant. I can't recommend this property enough and I will definitely return to Loom or Weavers Cottage next door.

Management response:

Thank you Lynn! You've made my Christmas with this lovely review! It's certainly a fantastic compliment to say that the cottage is 'amazing' and great that you observed the parking potential ( very useful in Southwold), we're just so happy you enjoyed yourselves!
