We walked from Manning Tree Station to Flatford and back (a National Trust walk). Lovely walk and not too long, 2 miles each way. We learned more about John Constable (an English painter) His most famous painting is 'The Hay Wain' and the spot where he painted this in 1821 is at Flatford and we stood there! There is a tea room serving good cakes and scones. It's probably very busy during Summer. You can also visit Bridge Cottage where you can go inside and read/see how people lived in the old days in 1800's. They also have a small museum on John Constable which is worthwhile. Recommended on a good weathered day.

Lovely peaceful place to visit. Great views. Can sit by the water with tea or coffee. Kids can run up and down the trail paths.

Called by in passing. It had been raining heavily recently so the paths were rather muddy. Pretty place though. Nat Trust car park fee £4. Nearly toilets.

A wonderful place to visit. Plenty of surrounding countryside walks. Pleasant boat rides on the river. The cottage is quaint and enlightening not just for those who appreciate Constable's art.

This place had so much potential and the food quality is great but just not enough choice of dishes. Chaos reigns and queueing just takes too long.

A beautiful and relaxing place to visit, each season of the year has something to delight in, never fails to deliver

Pleasant place to visit on a summers day if you are at a loose end. Best to go in the week when there are fewer people around.

Quite a hike to reach the spot where Constable painted The Haywain, especially if you go via the route outlined in our guide book (101 Walks in Britain to Do Before You Die). It nearly killed us!

Brilliant on a summer's day. Was like a dream. Absolutely beautiful
