Properties For Sale in Long Melford

Long Melford is situated on the Suffolk/Essex border, close to the towns of Bury St Edmunds (12 miles to the north) and Colchester (16 miles south east).

Home to two stately homes, Long Melford was one of medieval Suffolk’s great cloth towns and is well known for its famous village green, the Bull Hotel and the Holy Trinity Church, which was once described as the most moving parish church in England.

Originally set around a single three-mile stretch of road (hence the name), Long Melford has now expanded to be one of Suffolk’s most attractive villages.

As well as excellent transport links to East Anglia’s major towns, Stansted Airport is less than an hour away by car.

Well known for its numerous antique shops, made famous by the 90’s TV show Lovejoy, Long Melford also boasts a number of art galleries, boutiques, restuarants, cafes and pubs. Most famous of these is the Bull Hotel, which it is said is haunted by the ghost of Richard Evered, a commoner who was violently murdered in 1648.
