Why We Love This Hotel

  • 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 and have a picnic 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.

This hotel is in a lovely location with the opportunity for plenty of walks around the broads. Set in beautiful grounds with reasonable facilities. Room was comfortable and food although a little pricey was good quality. This hotel is ideal for couples that want a quiet relaxing break. We would happily return to Ivy House Country Hotel. This deal with travel zoo was great value for money.
