Good information can be found here on Constable. Beautiful little cottage, mind your head on the low ceilings and door ways!

Car park costs £ 3.50 for the whole day and it’s free for NT members. Apart from that no other entry charges.They provide you with a map of the area, so it’s very convenient. There are many picturesque areas for photography and for artists. This qualifies for a full day out without a doubt. There are many walks through nice gardens and meadows – good for nature lovers. I saw many people bringing stuffs for picnics.
You can go on a boat ride on your own (5 people in a boat) and it’s only £8 for one hour. They provide smaller oars for kids. It seems that many families was having fun.

The best place by the river for a tea and scone.The cottage ahas a small room open to the public displaying replicas of constable paintings.Worth a stroll.It also has a little gift shop and a gorgeous tea room on the river.We enjoyed some home made cakes and sat watching the rowers past by...Had lots of little robins that were brave enough to steal a few crums off our table.Its a great start or finish after a walk to Dedham (45 mins one way-can get electric boat ride back for £5.00) or a short stroll to the Flatford Mill,Willy Lot house,the hay wain view (all famous in constable paintings) only 5 mins away.

Right beside Flatford Mill, this is a real step back in time. Beautifully kept by the National Trust, it’s a lovely addition to this glorious place. So much interesting information served up in a really nice way. It’s right next to the Cafe and gift shop, so don’t miss it.

While passing through Flatford we were amazed by its beauty and clean appearance. The food looked tasty but we didn't stop to eat. All and all it was a place we would like to visit for a koffy stop next time!

Monday 20th October, visited Flatford Mill, the first stop on the walk around was Bridge cottage. This is a beautiful small thatched roof cottage that is well maintained. Be careful when entering the ceilings are rather low. It only takes a few minutes to walk around and view the Constable memorabilia. It is certainly worth a visit, a step back in time.

The entry fee is only £3.50 for the entire attraction, free to National Trust members, we were not charged an entrance fee as we had walked the route from East Bergholt. A great day out.

Bridge Cottage itself is very small, but has lots of interesting things in the exhibition. Including copies of Constables paintings accompanied by maps with arrows so you can see where he was when he painted each one. That was fun for my little one as I could show him how it looked 'in the old days'.

It's worth a quick look before you walk round so you know what to look out for and then a second quick look afterwards to get more information once you've seen all the views.

Watch out for the low ceiling if you're tall!

This thatched cottage has a low ceiling and is very small but there is a good exhibition of some of John Constable's paintings. After visiting it is interesting to see if you can find the exact location.

This little National Trust hamlet has the locations of half a dozen of Constable's paintings (including the iconic "Haywain" within a couple of hundred yards. It has been very well preserved and you get a real feel for the place where Constable painted.
Two tips; arrive early to avoid the crowds and buy the guide book so you can match the views to the paintings (most people we saw hadn't done so and were looking over our shoulders instead!)
