Bridge Cottage, known as Flatford Bridge Cottage, is a pretty 16th-century thatched cottage in Flatford in Suffolk. It has been a National Trust property since 1943.

The property is located in the heart of Dedham Vale, a typical Suffolk rural landscape. It is noted as the location for works by John Constable, and presents an exhibition of his paintings.

The cottage is located just upstream from Flatford Mill which, along with neighbouring Valley Farm and Willy Lott's Cottage, are leased to the Field Studies Council, a group uses them as locations for arts-based courses.

The property provides access to a number of walks along the River Stour.
