The Cabin Sudbury
The Cabin at 98 Melford Road Sudbury
The Cabin Sudbury was purpose-built in 2010 and is set in a large half-acre garden at the rear of 98 Melford Road Sudbury. The garden itself features regularly in Sudbury’s Open Gardens scheme and has won first prize as best Organic Garden of the Year in the town’s Sudbury in Bloom competition. The garden is also part of the Quiet Garden Trust – which means that it can be used by visitors for quiet reflection and meditation. The overriding atmosphere of the garden is one of peace and quiet.
The Cabin itself is set among 98’s extensive, well-stocked flower beds that lead on to a vegetable and soft fruit area. There are numerous places to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Built in a New England style, it consists on one side of a large room, with two single beds, which can be turned into a super-king bed on request, and on the other a comfortable lounge area, with settee and TV. Beyond this room is a kitchenette with fridge, cupboards and seating area. To the left of the kitchenette is a shower room with washbasin and wc.
Further guest rooms are available in the main house.
The Meadows Room, overlooking Sudbury’s famous water meadows, is a large room with two single beds which can be turned into a super-king bed on request. It is served by an adjacent private bathroom.
The Garden Room, overlooking the beautiful back garden, is a large room with superking-size double bed and en suite facilities.
The Wisteria Room (by special request) on the ground floor is a large room with a double bed and an adjacent wet-room.

How to find us
Melford Road is the main road, the A134, running through the town on the northern side.
Access by road -
From the north - on entering the town along the A134, the Cabin at 98 Melford Road, Sudbury is on the left-hand side, just before the three-storey cottages begin on the right-hand side, exactly opposite the gates into the water meadows.
From the south - on leaving the town along the A134, in the direction of Long Melford and Bury St Edmunds, the Cabin Sudbury is on the right-hand side of the road, after the three-storey cottages finish on the left-hand side,
Access by rail -
A rail link serves the town, but only from the south – there is a regular service from London and also from Colchester, both requiring a change at Marks Tey,
Opposite the house is a gate leading on to the town’s famous water meadows, a protected site supervised by the Sudbury Common Land’s ranger and his team. The water meadows surround the town on the south and west. There are numerous very pleasant, undemanding walks criss-crossing the meadows and the abandoned railway track.
Sudbury itself is an ancient market town with many very old buildings, including three splendid medieval churches and a number of houses dating back to Tudor times. A museum dedicated to the painter Thomas Gainsborough, who was born in Sudbury, is situated in the town. The town also has a very fine variety of shops and eating places. Its busy market operates on Thursdays and Saturdays and attracts many folk from the surrounding villages.
Sudbury provides easy access to a large number of picturesque villages, many of which are within ten miles of the town – Long Melford, well-known for its large number of antique shops, Castle Hedingham, with its magnificent Norman keep, Cavendish with its picture-postcard green and Suffolk-pink thatched cottages, Clare, with its beautiful church, Lavenham, famous for its beautiful preserved medieval buildings, especially the Guildhall, Kersey renowned for its ford across the road through the village - to name but a few! This area of south Suffolk and north Essex is rural England at its most peaceful and gentle.
Slightly further afield but still within easy driving distance, are the principal East Anglian towns of Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Colchester and Ipswich.- all of which deserve a visit.
