About the property

A pretty flint cottage set in the heart of the Suffolk countryside

Meadowview cottage nestles amid the splendid medieval high street of Long Melford. Only a short stroll from a plethora of tea rooms, antique shops, art galleries, boutiques, restaurant's and public houses, yet enjoying stunning views across the water meadows of the River Stour from it's tranquil rear garden. Meadowview provides the perfect base for shopping, exploring or resting. Melford Hall and Kentwell Hall, alongside the magnificent Holy Trinity Church, are all only a walk away too!

About Mark Livesey

Living in Kent and working in London, we bought Meadowview to escape the hustle and bustle and let the children run free at weekends.

Mark Livesey purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Mark Livesey chose Suffolk

The pretty flint cottage met all our requirements, close enough to beautiful restaurants and shops, but without the need to have to spend the weekend driving to get to them. Sat in the rear garden, you have uninterrupted views of the water meadows and wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

Everything is so close at hand, yet the garden transports you to the heart of the countryside.

Another fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at the cottage, had another really lovely break.

Spent the Saturday at Suffolk Owl Sanctuary, which about 45 minutes drive away. I'd really recommend it, I took my 3 year old and absolutely loved th3 bird shows.

The cottage is so well equipped, great if you want to do some cooking which we did and also we had a takeaway from Melford Valley Tqndoori which was nice as well.

All in all another lovely stay, we'll be sure to return!

Long Melford set in the stunning Stour Valley (immortalised by John Constable) boasts the longest tree-lined village street in the country. The village dates from the Tudor times and many of the fine buildings which were built during this time still remain, though today housing restaurants, art galleries, fashion boutiques and pubs. By the large village green sits the grade I listed Holy Trinity Church, with its Cathedral proportions it is regarded amongst England's finest churches. The magnificent Melford Hall also sits in the village, once frequented by Beatrix Potter, it is open to the public and still has her original Jemima Puddleduck toy. The fine Kentwell Hall sits on the edge of the village and is a must if you are a fan of Tudor re-enactments.

Long Melford is the perfect base for exploring the lovely Suffolk countryside, with many country walks setting out from the village and the South Suffolk Cycle Route is only yards from Meadowview's front door.
