Why We Love This Hotel

  • This unique hotel is part of a 1800-acre National Trust estate in Suffolk
  • You can hire bikes to explore the grounds, play a game of tennis, or unwind in the indoor swimming pool and beauty treatment rooms
  • The 2-AA-Rosette Frederick's Restaurant serves top-notch modern cuisine


Tucked away at the end of a long driveway, The Ickworth is a "rejuvenating retreat" (The Daily Telegraph) in the village of Horringer in Suffolk. The Grade I-listed Palladian building sits in extensive grounds roamed by deer, on an estate that was once owned by the aristocratic Hervey family and the Earl of Bristol. Today it is home to a hotel, and a living museum run by the National Trust.

You can explore the 1800 acres of parkland and play tennis or croquet in the gardens, or explore the National Trust house with a free pass from reception. Children can burn off energy in the fairy garden, with its trampoline and climbing frame. Adults can hire bikes for £10 per day.

Families can borrow wellies, and there's a choice of 400 DVDs at reception, with daily film showings in the cinema. There is also an Ofsted-registered crèche (£13 per child, per two hours), a baby-listening service and babysitters (extra charges apply). Older children and adults can hang out in the games room, which has a PlayStation and an Xbox 360, as well as table tennis, table football and giant draughts.

The fine-dining Frederick's Restaurant overlooks the Italianate gardens and is adults-only in the evenings, whereas the Conservatory restaurant serves less formal fare including pizzas, steak and antipasti platters.

Bedrooms are split between the east wing of the manor and the lodge, which is half a mile from the main house. The restaurant and treatment rooms are in the east wing, and the indoor swimming pool is in an external building. Dogs can stay in selected rooms for £15 per dog, per night (please enquire on booking).

You can try your hand at clay pigeon shooting at Wild Tracks Off-Road Activity Park, spend an afternoon horse-riding at Barrow Hall Stables or fish at Larkwood Trout Fishery (all within 25 minutes' drive of the hotel; extra charges apply). The market town of Bury St Edmunds is a 10-minute drive away and Cambridge is less than 50 minutes' drive.

Only disappointments . we could not visit Ickworth House as it has closed for the winter. If we had known would have gone a day earlier. Also we could not get a table in the dining room and eating Chateaubriand in the conservator cafe , was not the experience we had hoped for as it was a birthday celebration. We did try to book a table at 11am on the morning we arrived.

What a privilege to stay in such an historic home. Even though a building of this age and size is not without its challenges, our room was sumptuous and the dining experience excellent. There were a lot of families with small children (v well behaved) which surprised us. We enjoyed using the large indoor swimming pool which was well heated, although it was not what some people might expect from a hotel spa - think more sports hall. The gardens are wonderful and full of colour considering our stay was in autumn. As for the House - exquisite, in immaculate condition , fantastic collections and the NT staff couldn’t have been more helpful and informative.

The room had a lovely view of the gardens.
Other Comments
Disappointed with the standard of the room, glasses were not clean, cobwebs on the bedside lamps and about 6-7 spiders/insects above the bed, therefore was not able to sleep at top of bed so had to sleep at bottom of bed for fear of them falling on me. Tried to call reception to complain a few times but unfortunately no one answered the phone.
