"The barn took our breath away when we first arrived - and still does! An amazingly beautiful, tranquil feel, good space, inside and out, of the highest standard. We've had so much pleasure from everything Looms Barn offers - a stunning property. We felt very at home and relaxed here. Especially appreciated the White Company and Neptune touches, also the wine, biscuits and coffee pods... and the exquisite lighting throughout. All the superlatives!! Thank you for the privelage of a lovely week here... So stylish"
"Our second stay at Looms Barn has been a pleasure. It is such a cosy and peaceful place to return to after a day walking in beautiful Suffolk. Thanks for the wine, biscuits and flowers. We would all love to come back for the hat-trick!"
"Our stay at Looms Barn has been perfect to celebrate my 50th Birthday, location is perfect to switch off and pure relaxation in beautiful surroundings. The barn is absolutely stunning, well equipped, comfortable and most importantly clean, what a homely feel. thank you for our welcome pack, most kind of you, I'm sure we will be returning in the future."
"A stunning property inside and out. We are not easily pleased and found everything to be 'spot on'. Great location to enjoy one of our favorite activities, which is cycling. We booked The Walnut Tree in Thwaite as a birthday lunch venue and the vegan food was excellent, combined with our enjoyable but challenging cycle. Good to the owners, the wine, coffee pods and cookies a bonus to receive and much appreciated."
