Constable Country holiday cottages
Cottages in Constable Country
Constable Country is an extremely varied part of Suffolk with many historical and artistic links. Within its boundaries is the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the River Stour, one of the longest and most beautiful rivers in East Anglia, which winds its way past Sudbury, through a wide pastoral and wooded valley to the coast at Manningtree. When staying in our Constable Country cottages, you’ll be in the area that was the inspiration to artists over the centuries, the landscape encouraging creativity from the likes of Constable, Gainsborough, Munnings and Nash.
With delightful village pubs, fine restaurants, peaceful country walks and cycle paths, this is an area to explore at a leisurely pace, before returning to your country holiday cottage. Flatford, for example, is the scene of one of Constable’s most famous pictures, The Hay Wain, showing Willy Lott's House in the background. Now run by the National Trust, the facilities include the Bridge House containing the John Constable Exhibition, Flatford Mill, Willy Lott’s House and Valley Farm, which are leased to The Field Studies Council. The River Stour Trust operate an electric launch for river trips at certain times during the season.
