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

The large village Green nearby features the impressive 15th-century Holy Trinity Church, famous for its exquisite stone and wood carvings and priceless stained-glass windows. 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, all within easy driving distance. For your convenience, ample parking is available right across the main frontage, at the back of the hotel, and throughout Long Melford Village High Street.
