Long Melford is a treasure trove for visitors, from independent and antique shops, to beautiful countryside; grassland, meadows, lakes, woodland and river. It is no surprise that Long Melford was chosen for the filming of ‘Lovejoy’ in the 1980’s and 90’s.
A visit to Long Melford Country park is a must when in the area. The park sits on 8.13 hectares of land perfect for exploring on foot or by bicycle, for picnics, dog walks and spotting local wildlife.
Our Sister pub, The Black Lion in Long Melford, overlooks the green and is a great spot for lunch. Why not try their Nine Stile Stride walking map, a 2.5 mile round route will take you over sleeper bridges, stiles and across the picturesque Suffolk countryside.
