Day Trip to Flatford?

Flatford is well worth a visit of itself so why not get there early and visit the sites of many of John Constable’s unique pictures such as the Hay Wain or Boatbuilding near Flatford Mill among many others. Wandering beside the River Stour or looking at Flatford Mill and Willy Lott’s House you can feel as if you are actually walking through one of his paintings.  Flatford is a National Trust property and they offer the following information to help you enjoy your visit:

  • Enjoy homemade food in our peaceful riverside tea-room.
  • Local gifts and Constable souvenirs in our charming shop.
