  • Very interesting well kept stately home. The rooms had plenty of information and we'll informed guides. 
  • Melford Hall offers everything you would expect from a National Trust stately home. The history of the house is fascinating and the interiors and antique furniture is outstanding. The family had links to Beatrix Potter who was a regular visitor. The original Jemima Puddleduck is on display in the nursery. The volunteers placed around the house were knowledgable and made the story come to life. The tea shop is also worth a visit and I personally recommend the sausage rolls.

  • A unique setting for any occasion! Melford Hall is a dramatic and beautiful Elizabethan house, part of which dates back to medieval times. Its 120 acres of parkland and lakes are available for weddings and corporate events or as a location for photography and filming. Melford Hall is in the historic village of Long Melford, in the beautiful south Suffolk countryside between Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds. Sixty miles from London, it is easily accessed by road, rail and air (via London Stansted). The Hall was mostly constructed in the 16th century. Melford Hall started out as a monastic hunting estate. Queen Elizabeth I visited in 1578. Melford Hall was sacked during the civil war. Beatrix Potter was a cousin of the Hyde Parker family and frequently stayed at the house. The Hall was requisitioned during World War Two. The North Wing burnt down in 1942. In 1960 it passed into the care of the National Trust.
