Why We Love It

  • The hotel is in the Broads National Park in Suffolk -- within 21 acres of gardens, lawns, ponds and marshes
  • The 2-AA-Rosette Crooked Barn Restaurant is in a converted 18th-century thatched barn, on the banks of Oulton Broad
  • The seaside towns of Southwold and Great Yarmouth are less than 30 minutes' drive


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 national park also 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 promenade and sandy beaches to the south of Lowestoft are a 10-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 25 minutes' drive. 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 since 2004. Head chef Martin Whitelock serves a menu of local and seasonal ingredients in the characterful 16th-century barn. 

All guests get homemade biscuits on arrival.

I enjoyed the room and the fact we could bring our dog. The easy access out of the room with the dog was great.

I was very disappointed with the way I was spoken to as I checked out. Asked to let them know in advance if we were bringing a dog - I specifically rang up to tell them! Told it hadn't made it to my booking but still made out to be in the wrong. Told we would have been put in a different room if they'd known. Spoilt the enjoyment we had during our stay. Before this we would have come back The staff in the bar and restaurant were lovely though.
