About The Hotel

The Ickworth offers a quintessentially English style property with a hint of the contemporary throughout its 27 bedrooms. With a sprawling 1,800 acres of National Heritage parkland to explore, the emphasis is on enjoying the great outdoors and then rewarding your efforts with a hearty afternoon cream tea (compliments of Tots Too of course!)

This home from home offers a fantastic Ofsted registered creche open daily from 10am till 5pm. Fully trained staff are on hand to entertain your little ones whilst you catch up on some well-deserved grown up time. Children can be left for up to two hours where they can play to their hearts content.

To complement the crèche, each hotel bedroom is fitted with a baby listening service. Just pop the system on in the room and the receptionist is then able to listen into the room from a device in reception; if any noises are heard, they will come and find you. A babysitter can be arranged at a charge.

For older children (and parents too!) Club Blu, is open 24 hours a day, complete with PlayStations, Nintendo WII, DVDs, table tennis, table football and a pool table plus enjoy the latest films showing at 6pm in the cinema room.

Enjoy lovely meals at the hotel’s 2 AA Rosette restaurant overlooking the gardens and sea, or sit out on the sun-trap patio for a summer barbecue. Children can enjoy a daily high tea in a dedicated dining room, or join their parents in the restaurant, before the quieter adults-only dining after 7.30pm. Alternatively, families may prefer a relaxed meal in the lounge by the roaring fire.

Ickworth offers a successful blend of contemporary style with the traditions of a great country house. The hotel offers a wide array of fantastic accommodation options for families. There are 27 rooms in the main hotel – 21 are decorated in the traditional style you might expect, but six are modern and chic – so take your pick. They range from standard doubles to interconnecting and suites. The Lodge is perfect for those with an independent spirit; just half a mile from the hotel, it offers spacious accommodation within its own four acres of gardens.

Enjoy the fantastic spa with heated pool, take a walk, jog or bike round around the extensive grounds or try “geo caching” complete with GPS to help you find your way!
