Constable Country and Pin Mill Holiday Cottages

Self cater with Suffolk Cottage Holidays and stay in traditional Suffolk holiday cottages in ancient towns such as Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury and beautiful secluded villages including Lavenham and Kersey. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, town and country are steeped in history, from Boudicea's stand against the Romans, invasions by the Vikings, settlement by the Normans and the early 'industrialisation' created by a thriving wool trade.The River Stour, one of the longest and most beautiful rivers in East Anglia, little changed over the centuries, winds its way through a wide pastoral and wooded valley to the coast at Manningtree. Inspiration to artists over the centuries, its landscape inspired great works by Constable, Gainsborough, Munnings and Nash. Scenes represented in many of these paintings – The Hay Wain at Flatford Mill – remain familiar to us today.With delightful village pubs, fine restaurants, peaceful country walks and cycle-paths this is an area to explore at a leisurely pace.

HADLEIGH

From the Norse – Haethlega – a heath-covered place, there is evidence of 1st century occupation in the remains of a Roman villa on the east of the town and of a 5th century pagan Saxon settlement in the area around George Street. The ninth and tenth century saw occupation by Viking settlers. From then on Hadleigh's prosperity grew with the development of the wool trade in mid Suffolk. The inheritance for us is a wealth of fine medieval houses; the 15th century grade 1 listed Guildhall and Deanery Tower. Stay in Hadleigh at Orchard Barn (sleeps 3-4) or The Lodge (sleeps 6)

DEDHAM VALE

Very little has changed here over the past two centuries so that the village retains a delightful mixture of Tudor framed buildings and Georgian fronted town houses. A paradise for artists, Dedham was home to Sir Alfred Munnings, famous for his paintings of horses, and President of the Royal Academy from 1944 to 1949.

STRATFORD ST MARY

The southern most village in Suffolk important since Roman times as a crossing point of the river Stour – Stratford St Mary means ‘street over the ford’. There are three fine old pubs, including The Swan, in the village from where you can walk down to the river and see the old lock and millpond popularised by Constable’s paintings. Many of the buildings date back to the wealthy days of the wool trade, including The Weavers, a fine example of a 16th century weaver’s cottage, its wide windows designed to maximise the light to enable the weavers to do their work.

EAST BERGHOLT

The birthplace of John Constable, his studio can still be seen today, East Bergholt was a centre for cloth production until the late 16th century, when the wool trade collapsed. Such a sudden downturn in wealth meant that the tower of St Mary's Church was never finished and a wooden bell cage was built in the churchyard instead in 1531. It remains today.

FLATFORD

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.

SHOTLEY PENINSULAR

On the edge of Constable Country is this almost forgotten peninsular, with the Orwell to the north and the River Stour to the south. Enjoy the tranquillity of this part of Suffolk. Absolutely ideal for a romantic break away.
