Approximately 16 miles from Colchester, 14 miles from Bury St Edmunds and a stone’s throw from England’s finest mediaeval village of Lavenham sits one of Suffolk’s most attractive villages, Long Melford.
Long Melford, with its incredible two-and-a-half mile long high street (the longest in England) is populated by charming independent shops, antique centres, vibrant art galleries, restaurants, health & beauty salons and traditional Suffolk Inns. It also boasts two Tudor mansions, Kentwell Hall, a grand romantic Tudor mansion surrounded by a moat and wonderful gardens and occupied as a family home, and Melford Hall, a large Elizabethan house built of red brick and run by the National Trust. Both of theses wonderful properties are open to the public.
