Situated in the idyllic picturesque village of Long Melford, the Bull Hotel dating back to 1450 is a magnificent and iconic heritage Grade 1 listed wedding venue. Today, wooden rafters, carvings, exposed oak beams and large open fireplaces proudly reflect the hotel’s historic charm. Visitors from all over the world come to stay at the Bull to enjoy its outstanding hospitality.
Long Melford is renowned as one of Suffolk’s most beautiful villages which is aptly named after its extremely long high street, lined all along with attractive historic timber framed buildings and Tudor cottages. The large village Green close by features the impressive 15th Century Holy Trinity Church, famous for its exquisite stone, wood carvings and priceless stained glass window. The River Stour is only a stone’s throw away from the Hotel and these all combine to offer numerous stunning photographic opportunities. It is easily accessible from Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Colchester, Ipswich, Braintree and Stansted Airport which are all within easy driving distance.
