A cosy, boutique Georgian hotel with elegant interiors in rural Suffolk - breakfast included

Set in the heart of Constable Country, Long Melford is reputedly one of the prettiest villages in England, with its sprawling stately homes, fine 15th-century church, glorious rolling countryside and sprinkling of antique emporiums (immortalised by Lovejoy), boutiques and novelty shops.

Overlooking Long Melford's charming village green and church, the refurbished Black Lion is a traditional village hotel with heart. If you like your bedrooms boutique and bespoke, your gardens picturesque and your restaurant dining award-winning, then this boutique Georgian bolthole is most certainly the place for you.

We like

  • Kick-starting the day with a hearty full English, and ending it at the cosy and intimate bar
  • Sleeping in classic yet upscale, individually-designed bedrooms
  • A pretty English village location ideal for cycling, antique shopping and taking long walks
  • A quintessentially English boutique escape, perfect for the colder months as much as the warm ones
