    This Grade I-listed cottage was owned by Willy Lott, a farmer born in 1761. The cottage featured in a number of paintings by British Romantic painter, John Constable, but most notably, 'the Hay Wain'. The cottage — which is located in Flatford, in the heart of the beautiful Dedham Vale, an area the artist painted prolifically — was restored in 1921 following a resurgence of interest in Constable's work and is now owned by the National Trust.

    There are guided tours available in the holiday season which you can pick up from Flatford Cottage where there is also a pretty decent cafe and a picnic area. Boats are also available for hire and there are short boat tours that will take you on the beautiful Stour as far as Dedham.
