The Ickworth Hotel is located within a National Trust property in Suffolk, providing you a great family holiday or break setting. This is great place where you can relax, knowing the kids (and pets) aren’t unoccupied or have to be extra careful about noise and ‘organised’ mess. The big draw to The Ickworth Hotel is also the good food and great location. You can hire bikes to explore the grounds and there is an adult’s only restaurant where you can get away for a romantic meal whilst the kids are being babysat or you can use the very handy listening service. Although, some rooms in The Lodge (a converted farmhouse) can be a 10-minute walk away so this service may not work, and you may need a brolly when going to and fro the main house, but the suites do include kitchens so you can dine in when you choose.
