The River Runs Through Us

The River Runs Through Us 

A dozen artists have given us their response to the river in our exhibition for July and August in the Boat House Gallery. The text installation by Ruth Philo and Stuart Bowditch follows the line of the river from the source to the sea. On the floor are the names of edible wildflowers found along the river bank.

Dogs welcome in our outside seating areas

Although dogs are more than welcome at Flatford, we do ask them to wait outside the Tea room as we have an open kitchen. We have plenty of outside seating areas by the riverside or on our veranda.
