About Mark Livesey
Living in Kent and working in London, we bought Meadowview to escape the hustle and bustle and spend time together. So peaceful and relaxing, yet bike rides and walks, as well as top class restaurants, all within 5 minutes from the front door.
Mark Livesey purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Mark Livesey chose Long Melford
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 Constable's famous 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.

Beautiful Cottage in Suffolk!
This cottage was everything we anticipated and more! The owner was very attentive, sending emails to ensure we had received the check-in information details. The cottage was very clean and just the perfect location for our lovely holiday in Suffolk. The views from the back bedroom window were amazing. The Bucks Fizz upon arrival was an added bonus!
We had a wonderful holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We'll definitely consider this location again! Thank you!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. It was lovely to have you stay and we would love to welcome you back some day.
Cosy cottage in a lovely village
The cottage is cute and cosy, equipped with everything you need. We especially enjoyed sitting in the sunny garden reading. We didn’t take our dog but she would have loved the walks nearby (not the cows and neighbour’s sweet cats however!). There’s loads to do in Long Melford and the surrounding areas and plenty of good eating out options on the doorstep. Very enjoyable.
Thanks so much for your lovely review Adele and I’m really glad you enjoyed your stay. Would love to welcome you back to try more eateries!
Great location for the village and nice and warm cottage
Nice location for looking around Long Melford. Cottage nice and clean and cozy and warm during a cold spell.
We both really liked Long Melford village with the pubs and different eating places on offer. It is a great base to explore the lovely surrounding country side.
The cottage was cosy and had the usual equipment etc. to use.
Tiny 'however' the visitors who had stayed the few days before we arrived, had a dog which unfortunately you could still smell.
The Bucks Fizz left by the owners was a lovely touch - thank you.
Thank you Sharon and I am pleased you had a lovely stay. I have spoken to the cleaners, as the cottage should have been crisp and fresh when you arrived.
Ideal situation. Beautiful views across a water meadow at the back but right on the High Street
Lovely property. Really enjoyed our 3 days here wish it could have been longer. So many other restaurants we would love to try.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Would love for you to stay again and explore some more. Best wishes Mark
Lovely character cottage
The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring Long Melford and the surrounding area. It has all the amenities you need and is very homely. We had a great few days cycling out to Lavenham and other picturesque villages. As stated in the information pack the bathroom is due for an update which I totally agree with and is the only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars.
Mark was very helpful and answered any questions quickly.
We would stay here again without a doubt.
Thanks for the lovely review Aly. New bathroom went in over the last fortnight and will be inspecting it this weekend! Do come and stay again.
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.
