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.

Accommodation

Luxury rooms are spacious, individually styled and unique, with classic yet upscale amenities. You'll find a large king-size bed, Egyptian cotton sheets and a shower over the bath in the en-suite.

Amenities:

- Wi-Fi access
- Flatscreen TV
- Heated towel rail
- En-suite bathroom
- Noble Isle bathroom amenities
- Soft robes

Dining

The restaurant is a popular choice for guests and local villagers alike, with its lavish country breakfasts, traditional cream teas (featuring obligatory baked scones, with local Tiptree jam and clotted cream) and elegant mains. You can also contemplate life with a post-dinner glass of your fancy in the Melford Bar.

Location


Black Lion Hotel is perfectly located in the Constable scenery of Long Melford, in East Anglia. In what is touted as one of the most attractive villages in England, many of the prettiest sights are accessible by foot, like its charming antique emporiums (made famous by Lovejoy), boutiques, novelty shops and stately homes in Kentwell and Melford Halls, plus the beautiful 15th-century Holy Trinity Church and the urban centre of Ipswich further afield. Bury St Edmunds is particularly popular too.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
