  • "This is a fabulous cottage, very well equipped and centrally located in Long Melford."

    It is well suited to couples or small family. The only issue was the king room bathroom door does not latch properly so it swings open if not locked from the inside

    It's a very well-equipped cottage in a quiet spot, even though it is just around the corner from the main street in Long Melford. The owner provided lots of little nice touches to make it feel like a home from home (Much appreciated was the welcome basket). Would definitely recommend it!

    Everything you could wish for is provided and more. We really appreciated the Christmas decorations, a lovely gesture along with a goodie box. The cottage is well positioned, central to local facilities and great having parking at the door. Lovely to have my dog made welcome with his own dish and treats. Looking forward to another visit next year.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Coconut Cottage."

    It was extremely comfortable, well-equipped with beautiful decor - also very convenient for all the pubs and fascinating shops in Long Melford. My sister and I are senior citizens and our only concern was the bath/shower. There were no grab handles so we were too afraid to have a bath as we knew we'd have difficulty getting out. There was a slip mat which we used when having a shower - but a grab handle on the wall near the shower would have given extra confidence. Overall, we loved the cottage.

    Thank you for your lovely comments , and for the grab rail suggestion. I will look into it and see what I can do. I look forward to welcoming you back to Coconut Cottage soon. Property Owner

  • "Fine overall."

    Well equipped. A few maintenance matters, I left a note for the cleaner to report. Bathroom sink let the water drain away quite quickly so washing meant running the water continuously.. Outside gutter at back of house above central small window leaked water down the wall when it rained. Not our concern but the wall is green at the bottom as a result. Forgotten 3rd item on my list.

    Thank you for your observations, it’s always helpful to know if something is going wrong. The basin sink in the bathroom has been replaced. Unfortunately in heavy rain the gutters, although regularly cleared do overflow, as I also get the run off from next door. I hope you will come back to visit again! Property Owner

    The cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Its location was perfect, with plenty of lovely walks from the doorstep and within walking distance of all the amenities that Long Melford has to offer including a good selection of places to eat. This was definitely a lucky find.

  • "A lovely clean, well equipped house in a great location."

    Maybe garden needs a little more love but overall very satisfied.Owner even provided a parasol as I cannot sit in the sun! Thank you so much.

    Thank you for your positive comments. I only inherited the garden recently as an overgrown patch of weeds, and I am working on the development of it. As the cottage is pretty fully booked, there is only a small window of a couple of hours on a Friday, for maintenance and planting. It is already so much better than it was! The rambling roses are beginning to get into their stride, and soon the arbour will be covered with honeysuckle, roses and clematis. Property Owner

    Very clean and spacious, very well equipped kitchen, comfortable and large beds. Easy off-road parking in front of the cottage, which is situated on a quiet street. We’d recommend exploring the local area by taking nice, long walks. Long Melford has lots of charm and character. We’d definitely recommend Coconut Cottage to anyone.

    Had issues with the heating upon our arrival, but the owner came out and sorted the issue within half an hour. The kind neighbour next door looked after the bins for us so we didn't need to worry about that. Thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property and would highly recommend.

About the location


Sudbury 3.5 miles. Lavenham 4.8 miles. Clare 8.8 miles.

Long Melford is a former medieval wool town, and is known as the 'Antique Capital of Suffolk', with a wealth of antique shops, art galleries, tea rooms, restaurants and independent shops, found down the wide tree-lined main street. The village also has the National Trust property Melford Hall, which is unchanged since 1578, and a magnificent 15th Century church which sits on top of the hill at one end of the village. On the outskirts is Kentwell Hall, which has authentic re-creations of everyday life in Tudor or World War II times. The chocolate-box picturesque village of Lavenham is just 5 miles, and Sudbury is 3.5 miles, which makes this village an ideal location to explore Constable Country.
