Dragonfly Cottage is a beautifully presented, charming period property thought to date back to the 1400s. The property is situated in the most idyllic spot, nestled between the Grade I listed Holy Trinity Church and the stunning Trinity Hospital (now almshouses). The property is just a short walk from some of the village’s best pubs and restaurants as well as superb countryside walks both throughout the grounds of the renowned Kentwell Hall and surrounding footpaths.
The property has been lovingly cared for and has been presented to a high standard while remaining sympathetic to cottage’s heritage. Numerous original features can still be seen including exposed timbers and a cosy open fireplace. The property contains a sitting room with a bay window looking into Church Walk itself and plenty of seating together with a smart TV for a quiet night in. The kitchen contains a dining table and chairs and a range of appliances including a fridge, Stoves cooker and gas hob, integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer. Upstairs, accommodation is arranged over two further floors with the master bedroom overlooking the old hospital gardens and a spacious shower room on the first floor and a further double room on the second floor.
Outside, the property benefits from a fully private garden with a summer house at the end. There is parking available approximately 10m from the property in a free village car park situated at the top of the green itself.
Long Melford itself is home to a wonderful variety of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs with the Black Lion Hotel serving excellent food and drink less than 1 minutes walk away! Long Melford has long been a shopping destination for antiques and artwork with a number of galleries and shops still showcasing a fantastic collection of items. In addition to its amenities, Long Melford is nestled within beautiful countryside with plenty of footpaths out through farmland and land belonging to two stately homes, Kentwell Hall and Melford Hall – both of which periodically open to the public and are well worth a visit.
Within easy reach are a number of other historic villages including Lavenham, one of the best preserved medieval wool towns in England, Clare which is the smallest town in Suffolk and the nearby Cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds. Sudbury is a thriving market town just a 5-10 minute drive away with plenty of shops, visitor attractions and restaurants and train line links into London and beyond.
