Location

Long Melford is known as one of Suffolk’s most beautiful picturesque villages which is aptly named after its extremely long high street, lined all along with attractive historic timber framed buildings and Tudor cottages.

The large village Green close by features the impressive 15th Century Holy Trinity Church, famous for its exquisite stone, wood carvings and priceless stained glass window. The River Stour is only a stone’s throw away from the Hotel and these all combine to offer numerous stunning photographic opportunities.

The Bull Hotel is easily accessible from Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Colchester, Hadleigh, Ipswich, Halstead, Braintree and Stansted Airport which are all within easy driving distance. For your convenience, there is ample parking available right across the main frontage and also at the back of the hotel and throughout Long Melford village High Street.
