Explore 1,800 acres of beautiful parkland, cycling bikes, strolling on foot or clambering up ancient trees. While the kids play in the crèche, swim in the indoor pool or sip champagne in the historic walled gardens.
Family time or me time – you’ve got all the time in the world. Just two hours from London, The Ickworth is enveloped in rolling Suffolk countryside.
Freely roam the idyllic grounds or enjoy our extensive facilities, from a tennis court and children’s play areas to our on-site restaurants serving locally sourced, seasonal dishes.
Despite the grandeur of Ickworth, they welcome the sound of little feet – and paws too – and expect you to treat their hotel like your own country home. They encourage children to be curious, active and adventurous: find the giraffe in the walled garden, spot deer on the estate, explore the fairy garden, visit the farm animals and cycle along woodland trails. Their excellent facilities inspire quality family time both indoors and out. Make a splash with the children in the pool, explore the estate on foot and by bike, and enjoy leisurely family meals. Then turn the children over to their expert crèche staff and babysitters, switch on the baby-monitoring system, or leave older children to make friends in the games room, while you sip champagne in the gardens or chill out with a treatment. With two free hours of childcare on each day of your stay, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and unwind.
