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.

Frederick's Restaurant is the Ickworth's adults-only restaurant and is housed in the original dining room of the Hervey family. Sophisticated candlelit meals of contemporary European fare are served looking out over the Italianate gardens. Full English and continental breakfasts and family dinners are served in the more informal environs of the Conservatory.


Alongside a lovely heated swimming pool, the treatment centre has a number of contemporary therapy rooms where massages, facials and reflexology treatments using the Elemis product range are available as well as Orly manicures and pedicures.


The Ickworth estate offers plenty of excitement for visitors of all ages, from short rambles through beautiful gardens to long bike rides through dense and varied forests, where you'll see all manner of deer and bird life. Guests can play tennis or make the 15-minute journey to the nearby Bury St Edmunds 18-hole championship Golf Club.

Keen horse riders (or novices for that matter) can get riding lessons at the nearby Barrow Hall Stables and anglers will enjoy being just 15 minutes from one of the country's premier trout fisheries at Larkwood.
