More Room Types

Ivy House Country Hotel is close to the coastal town of Lowestoft, and sits on the banks of Oulton Broad within 21 acres of gardens, lawns, ponds, marshes and thatched barns.

The hotel is in the Broads National Park, and you can stroll into the village of Oulton Broad directly from the hotel's gardens. Full of scenic waterways and wildlife, the park also has plenty of walking and cycling routes, or you can access it by boat and moor up to explore the nearby villages and waterside pubs.

The promenade and sandy beaches to the south of Lowestoft are a 5-minute drive from the hotel, with plenty of options for coastal walks. Local attractions including Africa Alive!, Pleasurewood Hills and the seaside town of Southwold are within 20 minutes by car. The coastal resort of Great Yarmouth and the Suffolk Coast National Nature Reserve are less than 30 minutes' drive away.

An extensive refurbishment programme was completed in 2014 with the addition of Eve's Bar, which has panoramic views over the gardens, ponds and over to the Broads. It's a great spot for a cream tea, a pre-dinner drink or a bar snack. You can also order a picnic hamper to enjoy at one of the many picnic tables within the grounds.

For fine dining, head to the Crooked Barn Restaurant, which has held two AA Rosettes for 12 years. Head chef Martin Whitelock serves a menu of local and seasonal ingredients in the characterful 16th-century barn. The AA Restaurant Guide 2017 says the restaurant is the "ace up [the hotel's] sleeve", noting its "abundance of character".

All rooms come with large beds, flat-screen TVs and homemade biscuits that are waiting in the room on arrival.

From the press:

  • "The kitchen makes excellent use of the region's produce in some eclectic dishes" -- The AA Restaurant Guide 2017

  • "The attractively decorated bedrooms are housed in garden wings, and many have lovely views of the grounds to the countryside beyond" -- The AA Hotel Guide 2017
