Melford Hall

An impressive 16th century stately home in the village of Long Melford in Suffolk

Historically it’s the ancestral seat of the Parker Baronets. All I know is, we go there a lot and it’s a huge hit with our guests here at Woodfarm

It’s also now the home of the annual Leestock Music Festival, of which we are a corporate sponsor and I have also played at, in 2013 & 2014, with my band Elephant in the Room with my musician’s hat on!

Steeped in history, much of which can be found on the National Trust website or Wikipedia!

A bit more information ....

For the last few hundred years it's been in Hyde Parker family. Beatrix Potter was a cousin of the family and was a frequent visitor to the hall from the 1890s onwards

One wing of the hall was gutted by fire in February 1942 but rebuilt after World War II, retaining the external Tudor brickwork with 1950s interior design

The hall was first opened to the public in 1955 by Ulla, Lady Hyde Parker. In 1960 it passed into the care of the National Trust

It is generally open on weekend afternoons in April and October, and on afternoons from Wednesday to Sunday during May to September
