Why We Love It

  • This Suffolk hotel sits in 21 acres of gardens, lawns, ponds and marshes within the Broads National Park
  • The 2-AA-Rosette Crooked Barn Restaurant is in a converted 16th-century thatched barn on the banks of Oulton Broad
  • Popular seaside towns Southwold and Great Yarmouth are less than 30 minutes' drive away


Ivy House Country Hotel is close to the coastal town of Lowestoft, and sits on the banks of Oulton Broad. Its 21 acres of grounds include gardens, lawns, ponds, marshes and a thatched barn.

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

The hotel is a 10-minute drive from Lowestoft's promenade, and beyond that the sandy beaches south of the town offer plenty of options for coastal walks. Local attractions Africa Alive!, Pleasurewood Hills and the seaside town of Southwold are within 25 minutes' drive. The coastal resort of Great Yarmouth and the Suffolk Coast National Nature Reserve are less than 30 minutes' drive away.

Eve's Bar & Lounge 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 hamper to enjoy at one of the many picnic tables within the grounds.

For fine dining, head to the Crooked Barn Restaurant, which holds two AA Rosettes. Head chef Keith Parton serves a menu of local and seasonal ingredients in the characterful 16th-century barn. 

All guests get homemade biscuits on arrival.

Lovely breakfast and a very friendly chef who spoke to us. Food was very good. Receptionist very pleasant. Our dog was welcome, he even had his own welcome pack and a nice spot to explore safely at the back of the hotel. We'd go back again
