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 an AA Rosettes. Head chef Keith Parton serves a menu of local and seasonal ingredients in the characterful 16th-century barn.

We were looking forward to visit this hotel again - as you were aware we are in the middle of Corona-Virus hence we had to cancel our booking. We have tried to get in touch by email and telephone to ask whether we are entitled to a refund but have be unsuccessful in getting any response. We would of loved to have a few days away to celebrate our anniversary. Hope you read this and address it.

It was a lovely break. The staff were very friendly & helpful, but some a little inexperienced or lacking in training.
