About Mark Livesey

Living in Kent and working in London, we bought Meadowview to escape the hustle and bustle and let the children run free at weekends.

Mark Livesey purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Mark Livesey chose Suffolk

The pretty flint cottage met all our requirements, close enough to beautiful restaurants and shops, but without the need to have to spend the weekend driving to get to them. Sat in the rear garden, you have uninterrupted views of the water meadows and wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

Everything is so close at hand, yet the garden transports you to the heart of the countryside.

Superb cottage, home from home!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage which had everything we needed and more.... including Bucks Fizz and a great coffee machine!

Gorgeous area; we very much enjoyed walking through Long Melford and enjoying the local pub grub!

Parking on the street was never an issue, always a space there.

Mark, thank you for providing a great base for our weekend away!

A great location for exploring a lovely area

  • 4 of 5

We really appreciated the central location of the property. Long Melford is an interesting place to explore and has lots of good eating places. We particularly enjoyed the Indian restaurant and enjoyed visiting nearby Lavenham, Melford Hall and the parish church. We weren't always able to park outside the cottage but always found a parking place nearby. The neighbours were friendly and helpful. The cottage is well equipped and the beds were comfortable - always important for a good holiday. We appreciated the thoughtful gifts of Bucks Fizz and shortbread. Communications with the owner were helpful and prompt. Access to the cottage was straightforward. Thank you.

Another fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at the cottage, had another really lovely break.

Spent the Saturday at Suffolk Owl Sanctuary, which about 45 minutes drive away. I'd really recommend it, I took my 3 year old and absolutely loved th3 bird shows.

The cottage is so well equipped, great if you want to do some cooking which we did and also we had a takeaway from Melford Valley Tqndoori which was nice as well.

All in all another lovely stay, we'll be sure to return!

Long Melford set in the stunning Stour Valley (immortalised by John Constable) boasts the longest tree-lined village street in the country. The village dates from the Tudor times and many of the fine buildings which were built during this time still remain, though today housing restaurants, art galleries, fashion boutiques and pubs. By the large village green sits the grade I listed Holy Trinity Church, with its Cathedral proportions it is regarded amongst England's finest churches. The magnificent Melford Hall also sits in the village, once frequented by Beatrix Potter, it is open to the public and still has her original Jemima Puddleduck toy. The fine Kentwell Hall sits on the edge of the village and is a must if you are a fan of Tudor re-enactments.

Long Melford is the perfect base for exploring the lovely Suffolk countryside, with many country walks setting out from the village and the South Suffolk Cycle Route is only yards from Meadowview's front door.
