Raised in the family home of Olantigh in Kent, Loudon was educated at Wellesley House School and Eton College, where he was President of the Eton Society. There he captained the 1st XI, and subsequently the Durham University 1st XI while studying at Collingwood College, and captained both the England Under-15 and England Under-19 teams. He was awarded the NBC Denis Compton Award in 1999.

He started his professional career at Kent before moving to Warwickshire in 2005. Initially known for his batting, in later years he worked hard to improve his bowling, gaining recognition as an all-rounder. An off spin bowler, he was reported to be working on the doosra, the much-discussed variation ball which turns the other way, although by his own admission his technique was still at an inconsistent stage.

Loudon was selected for the 17-man Test squad to tour Pakistan in autumn 2005, when England were looking for a second spinner in addition to Ashley Giles. However, he was not called upon to play.

He was subsequently called up as a part of the 15-man squad for the One Day Internationals versus Sri Lanka in June 2006, playing a solitary game. He took 0/36 off 6 overs and was run out without facing a ball. He was not selected for either the Test or One Day legs of England's tour to Australia the following winter.
