Willy Lott's Cottage
The Cottage was restored in the 1920s after a revival of interest in John Constable's paintings. It has been renamed Willy Lott's House because this is the name Constable used in his paintings. It is owned by The National Trust.
The cottage is located just downstream from Flatford Mill which, along with neighbouring Valley Farm and Bridge Cottage, are leased to the Field Studies Council, which uses them as locations for arts-based courses such as painting and as accommodation for sciences-based courses such as residential ecology trips for schools at A-level.Children from younger age groups also go there and stay as residents for a few days.
