Melford Hall

LONG MELFORD, Sudbury, CO10 9AA

Write a review

Melford Hall has changed little externally since 1578 when Elizabeth I was entertained here, and retains its original panelled banqueting hall. It was first the home of monks, and then the Hyde Parker family from 1786 to the present day. It is run on a day-to-day basis by the National Trust. You can see the Regency library, Victorian bedrooms, extensive collections of furniture and porcelain, and a small display of items connected with Beatrix Potter, who was related to the family, including the original Jemima Puddleduck given to a child of the family by Beatrix herself. The garden contains some spectacular specimen trees and a banqueting house and there is an attractive walk through the park. Special events are held throughout the year, including the annual Beatrix Potter Fun Day in July.
