A beautiful, Italianate-style hotel on the spectacular Ickworth estate, with breakfast and two-course dinner

The Ickworth Hotel is found within the grand Ickworth stately home, a National Trust property which dates back to the early 1800s and is one of the most unusual and spectacular mansions in the country. The house is distinguished by a soaring 100-foot high rotunda and 1,800 acres of parkland comprising pristine Italianate gardens and expanses of wild woodlands.

The Ickworth Hotel offers a tranquil and romantic setting for romantic getaways and an exciting, activity-packed time for families. Spend your days exploring the grounds of the hotel on foot or on bikes available at the hotel. You'll also have special after-hours access to the Capability Brown Italianate gardens and access to the main house, which boasts a fantastic art collection and selection of antique furniture.

Good to know

Please note that after-hours access to the main house is subject to National Trust opening times - please contact the hotel directly for further information. Access to the Italianate gardens is available to guests all year round.

Please be aware that some of the guest rooms are located in the Lodge, which is a 10-minute walk or short drive away from the main house.
