This quintessential English village has plenty on offer for your holiday and is nearby to some of Suffolk's hidden gems. The main street is full of wonderful antique stores, independent shops, delicious cafes, and restaurants, as well as pubs and art galleries. There are two magnificent manor houses, Kentwell Hall (1.5 miles) and Melford Hall (0.5 miles), both of which are within easy walking distance, are open to the public to tour and are a must during your stay. Sitting in Constable Country, Long Melford was made famous by two artists John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough, and it also has a rich history of wool making in the Middle Ages and makes up a part of the Wool Towns. Lavenham, Sudbury, Kersey and Clare are all a part of this collection of villages and are within 10 miles of the property. They boast some of the prettiest medieval cottages, wonderful walks and excellent pubs and restaurants.

This cosy bolthole is warm, welcoming, and ideal for a romantic getaway in the Suffolk countryside. Set on the grounds of the owners property, this annex has been wonderfully renovated and furnished to a high standard. Modern fixtures and fittings go side by side with antiques sourced from local dealers and stores. The kitchen is fully equipped for your self-catering stay but if you fancy a night off cooking, there are plenty of eateries serving scrumptious and often locally sourced food. The living area has a comfy sofa and armchair with an electric flame effect fire to snuggle up by. A generous bedroom with king-size bed is on the ground floor to the rear of the property making this an accessible space for all guests. Wake up to lovely views of the garden from the comfort of your bed. The shower room is also on the ground floor. Upstairs there is an additional bedroom with a single bed for your stay.

The enclosed garden is shared with the owners and beautifully landscaped. There is a small patio area dedicated to the property with a bistro table and chairs but feel free to explore the rest of the garden.

Chantry place was a beautifully kept property in the heart of the village where there was everything you needed. Owners very friendly & helpful. There were many eateries to choose from too & other interesting shops to visit, along with 2 stunning attractions very nearby. Overall, a great place to stay.

Lovely peaceful cottage, quiet stunning garden , but with the town and shops so handy nearby. The "tunnel" is like a passageway to a different world. Very well equipped, and very friendly, welcoming hosts. Thank you.

My wife and I had a lovely time here. Great location and a beautiful village. The Bell pub down the road goes recommended for quality. Eliza`s was good for a cooked breakfast and the local bakery is excellent. My only regret is that I ddn`t visit the Nethergate Brewery.

Bob & Jennys cottage was beautiful both in terms of layout, furniture & setting. They were both very welcoming hosts & we loved the welcome package! There is so much to do in Long Melford, we wish we could have stayed for longer than 3 nights.
