Bridge Cottage at Flatford Mill

Spend the day in Flatford, home of the beautiful 16th-century thatched Bridge Cottage, which is located in the heart of Dedham Vale

This is the location for John Constable's famous idyllic pastoral paintings, and visitors are invited to attend exhibitions held in the cottage.

One of the best ways to experience the countryside that John Constable knew and loved is to take the Constable Country Walk around the picturesque Stour Valley. By following in the footsteps of Constable you’ll have a better appreciation of the trees, rivers, sounds and light captured on canvass by one of the greatest British painters of all time.
