Welcome to The Mill - Long Melford
Located within the grounds of a former working mill and overlooking the stately mansion of Melford Hall, The Mill provides the perfect place to stay in the centre of Long Melford!
Our two boutique bedrooms are beautifully furnished and are located completely seperate from Hall Mill house, the main house of the owners. The rooms have off road parking and their own individual entrances, offering privacy and flexibility so guests can come and go with ease.
The Garden Room comes with a south facing private garden for exclusive use; a delight in the summer months. A wood burner is installed for winter which makes for a very romantic stay.
The Melford Room looks north and features a sumptuous freestanding brass and nickel bath. An outdoor seating area offers a lovely little vista toward the soaring spires of Melford Hall.
Both rooms are very generous in size measuring apx 300ft2.and form part of a Grade II listed cottage that used to serve the working mill in times gone by. Completely renovated and brought back to their former glory, the Grade II listed cottage and Hall Mill house can be found on Historic England's Heritage list.
Hall Mill house is steeped in history with the famous war poet Edmund Blunden living here until his passing in 1974; it is rumoured that Edmund used to study in part of the cottage. The location of The Mill is enviable; a stone’s throw away from all the facilities Long Melford has to offer. Just a few strides east from the main gate will bring guests to the square pond and moat of Melford Hall!
For those wanting a more tranquil stay in Long Melford, The Mill is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the busy high street yet its position provides fantastic access to the many pubs and restaurants in the village. Amenties are on the doorstep with the nearest public house and the high street less than two minutes walk away.
Enjoy a hearty home cooked breakfast taken in the conservatory of the main house before exploring the village and further afield. To compliment the stay, The Mill offers free use of kayaks and bicycles, enabling guests to navigate the delightful river Stour in Sudbury or the numerous cycle routes in and around the village.
We look forward to welcoming you at The Mill!
