Boat Hire at Flatford

One of the most interesting ways to explore the Stour Valley is by rowing boat. Hiring a rowing boat from Flatford will give you the opportunity to row upstream following the river as it meanders through the water meadows towards Dedham.

Exploring the valley in this way confers one distinct advantage, once you feel you have rowed far enough, you can let the river current carry you back to the starting point.
