Flatford RSPB Garden

A beautiful RSPB garden in the heart of Constable Country

It’s in a beautiful setting, on a south-facing slope beside the River Stour. It consists of flower borders full of nectar and pollen, a small wildflower meadow buzzing with life, a young apple orchard, woodland gardens, and a kitchen garden, all designed with garden wildlife in mind

There are frequent events and activities at the garden, with more children’s activities during the school holidays, and events and workshops for adults in the time between school holidays. It’s a beautiful place to get closer to nature!

Dogs are welcome, but should be on a lead, please

Only 19  miles from Woodfarm
