We enjoyed our holiday in a great setting in a very comfortable house. The Potting Shed sits back from a busy road in, away from the hustle and bustle of Long Melford, yet all shops, restaurants etc. within walking distance. Long Melford is also well situated to visit nearby towns and villages. We would highly recommend The Potting Shed to family aRead morend friends. Hide

The cottage was spotlessly clean. Very well equipped and in a good location. Convenient to many dog friendly pubs and lovely walks. Large enclosed garden which our dog loved. Will definitely be returning next year.
