THE LOCATION
Long Melford is an historic village, which contains a wealth of fine period houses and cottages along its High Street, one of the longest in England. It has an excellent range of facilities including a doctor's surgery, primary school, many pubs and restaurants and a good range of shops. The nearby market town of Sudbury and historic Bury St. Edmunds to the north each provide a further range of facilities, together with road and rail connections to London and the surrounding area. Southgate Gardens is a much favoured development of thirty detached houses set in a cul de sac at the southern end of the village. Set at the southern end of the main street, within easy level walking distance of all the facilities.
