We stay for a weekend in August and had a wonderful time. The hotel as promised is family friendly, our 2. The location is perfect on the grounds of the National Trust and even though it was a weekend the grounds were never busy. The free bike hire, with bike helments and a seat for the little one was an excellent perk. The pool was very good toys to play with available. The only down side is there is one shower for everyone mixed change room , which made for a long que.
Green space and toys everywhere, with a very understanding staff. We used the babysitting which was very professional and ate in the adult dining room Fredricks which was excellent, though I prefer the family dining room for appearance.
The food in all restuarants was generally very good our breakfast the second day was overcooked, but very minor. Only complaint about food was on Saturday the resturant wall full with people not staying in the hotel and consequently we had to eat in the lounge which was not ideal, as did many other familys staying at the hotel. If staying over a weekend pre-book lunch. The room was excellent, we had two bedrooms a sitting area and a huge bathroom.
The room needed some work, the windows were all broken and didn't stay open, making for a warm room in the evening. Beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. For families with young children I can't recommend this hotel enough and we will stay again. We did book last minute and it was expensive, but worth it. Thank you for taking time to give us valuable feedback on your recent stay at The Ickworth.
I am pleased that you were able to enjoy what we have to offer at The Ickworth. I was sorry to see that you were not able to be seated in the restaurant for lunch on Saturday but as you can see the restaurant is very popular with our local residents too.
As you suggest it would be wise to book if intending to dine. Thank you once again for your comments. We have just had a wonderful visit to The Ickworth. It was our first visit and we stayed in the Lodge. The room was lovely, staff really helpful and friendly, we could not fault it. We had breakfast in the Lodge and found the service excellent. Bike hire was a real bonus, and we made good use of the indoor pool.
We ate at the main hotel once, and again this was faultless. We look forward to returning! Richard, thank you for taking time to give us comments on your time at The Ickworth.
I'm glad that you and your family had a great time and want to come back for more! Hope to see you soon. My husband booked us and our 6 year old daughter in for 4 days at my urging after a recommendation from friends. The grounds are amazing, the main hotel was gorgeous and the staff were excellent. Our rooms in The Lodge, however, were a huge disappointment. I understand that they went through a refurbishment but they seem tired, dusty, had cracks in the ceilings and our bedroom room had cobwebs.
The main living space was cramped with tired furniture although the kitchenette was very nice. Although the bathrooms were spacious, we would have hoped for a better finish, a shower that didn't appear to have a screw as an attachment and very old, damp damaged linoleum on the floor for the price that we paid. Finally, I totally appreciate that the buildings are old but would rather not have been kept awake by the love making of the couple above.
A real pity as we were excited about staying at the Ickworth daughter loves it by the way. My Husband booked us a night here with our 19 month old as a suprise for my birthday, we'd looked at staying here several times but could never really justify the cost.
We arrived on 22nd July and stayed overnight in the room called Molly's, which is on the second floor and overlooks the gardens. It's a stunning room with a huge bathroom and everything was spotlessly clean. The Hotel and grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. Reception Pleasant and friendly but not particularly helpful. On arrival we weren't told about High Tea for our daughter, or where any of the facilities were, where the swimming pool was for example, or about the baby listening service etc etc All things we had to return to ask about.
Room It was the hottest day of the year and unfortunately because of the age of building there is no air con so it was a bit stuffy and hot in the room, but no fault of the Hotel. There was a fan in the wardrobe which we used and gave us some respite from the heat. We had asked for a travel cot for our daughter, which was supplied, however it was tiny and our daughter is on the small side, so I would recommend taking your own if you stay here.
It was a little tatty as it had a fist sized hole in one of the sides of the cot. It was also placed next to a double plug socket, not a huge issue, but the fact that only one socket had a guard in it was a bit sloppy, bearing in mind this hotel touts itself as family friendly. We moved the cot to the other side of the room. The windows have heavy blackout curtains, but the curtains don't reach the window sill, nor meet in the middle so let in loads of light.
We took our own blackout blind which alleviated the issue slightly but still, a niggle. Eating The kids food was served in the Conservatory, but again we had to wander around to find someone to ask, when we did find someone we were told that his colleague would be with us in a minute and were then ignored for about 5 minutes while we hovered about like a pair of numpties waiting for the staff to finish their conversation.
When we arrived for our daughter's food at 5 again we were ignored while the staff stood about chatting. When we asked if we'd come to the right place for the food, they said we would have to wait until a member of the creche arrived before we could sit down! The food was generously portioned and very nice so no complaints there, however we were asked if we would like a drink, we asked for two beers and asked what beers they had, the waiter told us he "thinks they have Budvar and Tiger, but I can't remember the others" I asked if they had anything local which was met with a stunned silence.
We ordered 2 Budvar, to be given Budweiser. We had dinner in Frederick's and took advantage of the free baby listening service, also going up and checking on our room between courses, as we'd never used a facility like this before. The atmosphere was very relaxed, although a bit stuck in the past, with the main course being silver served. The food was pretty average. The service in here was better though.
Breakfast was far better, with a completely different team on who seemed to know what they were doing. The choice of food was good, with a cold buffet, cereals etc and a hot breakfast option. All in all it's a bit hit and miss. I appreciate it's hard to do luxury and family together and they do try here, they are just let down by some of the staff being inconsistent and the small things that get missed, like the damage to the cot, the blackout curtains, the socket guard and placing a cot next to a plug socket!
Unfortunately the Hotel doesn't live up to the hype which is so disappointing. Just spent a weekend at Ickworth House Hotel with husband and three children and was really impressed with the feel of the place relaxed, intimate environment , the friendliness of the staff and the facilities. We we there for a surprise 40th and had an impromptu rounders tournament in the garden, played tennis, went cycling and enjoyed some v lovely food.
There is also a creche with v calm, smiley and experienced staff. It was quiet when we were there and we felt so at home. The Hotel has an interesting history, is nicely done up without being fussy or too perfect and set in the most beautiful grounds. I totally recommend the bike rides - go right at the Lodge out into the countryside and enjoy the views!
Robert the porter was a charming and v warm front of house and we we v sorry to leave. Thank you for your kind feedback regarding your stay Miriam, it is our aim to make sure that everyone leaves The Ickworth feeling totally relaxed and having enjoyed their stay.
Perhaps on your next visit try and visit the main Rotunda and get a further insight into the wonderful story of The Ickworth and the family history. Thank you once again and hope to welcome you back soon. Lovely hotel, very pretty setting, and yet the special "spa experience" booked for me by my family was very poor. I went with two friends, and there was no one to welcome us, no information about accessing the pool, no dressing gowns until we asked.
We were made to feel quite uncomfortable by the staff in the spa "we prefer our day spa ladies not to come on a Saturday" and for 2 of us the quality of the treatment was very poor. The meal in the conservatory was pleasant enough but would not recommend the spa. Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do.

The summer of , I think! Fancy you remembering the lovely doors, too! Margaret P aka Galant. What a stunning house. The Rotunda reminded me of the similar building of that name in Scarborough now a Museum. Below Stairs was my favourite bit too - I have a couple of smaller copper harvest jugs like the one in the photo. I am sure you will make the most of your NT membership now. Something pointless for us where we are as only about 3 places to go to in our neck of the woods.
I love all the copper and have quite a collection of saucepans, kettles, frying pans and jelly moulds. Sadly they are in our loft as in our modern house they look completely out of place.
When I have my cottage in the country they will out, polished and on display. Sometimes it's best not to take small children with you when going on such a trip. The Rotunda is beautiful, the kitchen as well, with all the polished pans in the drawer. Thanks for sharing with us. Looks like the people who built the place weren't short of a bob or two! I always love the kitchens best on any visit I well remember our children being unimpressed at our choice of day out I remember visiting Ickworth as a child, my parents were very keen on visiting National Trust and similar - I always got a chance to run around in the gardens or park, and my mum was very good at finding things to interest a child this was before the days of 'treasure hunts' and colouring books.
Thank you for reminding me of it. I always prefer the 'below stairs' bit - after all, that's where I would have been!
Lovely my NT membership. Enjoy you visits when you have time. I visited Ickworth many years ago when all that was needed to get into the grounds and Orangery was a donation in the honest box in the car park. The Orangery is superb. However, the Hervey family and the squandering of millions on drug taking and debauchery put me off ever visiting the place again. I love Ickworth and your photos have taken me back there. Must go again sometime. The dresser looks wonderful, Will was the same when we went to Marwell Zoo, he loves car's so was impressed with the zoo's vehicles rather than the animals.
Next time we take him out, we have said we will visit a car park! That looks a very interesting place Sue I always prefer seeing the kitchens and laundries to seeing the posh bits of big houses.
I remember a visit to Ickworth, perhaps a decade ago, also with some of my grandchildren. Beautiful place with a colourful family history, if I remember correctly. A Whig MP, landowner and race horse owner on the rise, he was created Baron Hervey of Ickworth in and then elevated to an Earldom, choosing Bristol from a choice of titles the family has no link whatsoever to the famous sherry.
Creating a walled garden, summerhouse and canal lake, he demolished the ruined Ickworth Hall, which used to stand on the high ground behind the Ickworth Church, and commissioned new designs from Sir John Vanbrugh. The new house was never to be, even with two successful marriages to wealthy heiresses, Isabella Carr and Elizabeth Felton With an expensive family that needed marriage dowries, allowances and gambling debts paid, he grew to love living permanently at Ickworth Lodge, a converted farmhouse on the estate, and now an annex to the Ickworth Hotel.
Available money was instead diverted to living like an Earl, creating a park worthy of the Hervey name and the patronage of artists — the basis of our collections today. Laid to rest between his too wives beneath Ickworth Church, the first of many Herveys buried there, his grandson August Hervey lamented the passing of 'the poor old lord of this place, to whom this family is so much indebted'.
Lord Hervey, the son of the 1st Earl and his second wife, was a successful politician and pamphleteer, and rose to high government office as Keeper of the Privy Council becoming one of the most famous figures of his time. He is best remembered today for his outspoken memoirs of the court of George II and for his devotion to Queen Caroline.
Lord Hervey's life was full of scandal. He was notorious for his bisexual relationships and effeminate style, sharing a mistress with the Prince of Wales, and having a year relationship with another man, Stephen Fox. There was so much confusion about his sexuality that Lady Mary Wortley Montagu came to the famous conclusion that there are three human species: Even so, Lord Hervey never separated from his wife Molly Lepel , herself much admired for her wit and good sense, and they had 8 children who were to greatly influence the Ickworth.
His eldest 3 sons became the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Earls of Bristol respectively. He did however add significantly to the collections also adding an impressive quantity of ambassadorial silver. Becoming almost as infamous as his father, Augustus Hervey was the 2nd son of Lord Hervey. A sailor, philanderer and politician, he joined the navy at 11, and by the age of 20 had become a lieutenant and secretly married Elizabeth Chudley He spent the next 15 years at sea, during which time he kept a diary detailing his wartime adventures afloat and amorous adventures ashore.
His list of conquests includes princesses, duchesses, contessas, artists, models, actresses, singers, dancers and even nuns. Unfortunately when Augustus returned to England in the s, he found that his wife had abandoned him for the Duke of Kingston.
The downstairs had people dressed in period costume as servants of the home. It was lovely to wander around the home seeing the artwork and furniture.
The grounds were beautiful aa was the rear garden. There is a small church set back on the grounds worth visiting with an old graveyard and small interior to the church. The home also has a small souvenir shop and a cafeteria for tea or snacks. This was a great day out. We have been many times for the Sparkle event and each time have enjoyed it. The children love the magic of the setting and it rubs on us as parents.
Father Christmas is superb and captivates his audience entirely. I did offer some feedback to Ickworth about the pricing - we paid adult entry, which I don't believe we have in previous years. It felt to me a little like they were squeezing as much cash out of us as possible I invited feedback from Ickworth but haven't heard anything yet. Anyway, despite the price issues, it remains a magical experience which the kids absolutely love!!
Conclusions; The living history days are a brilliant idea A first class day, superbly presented by the 'ghosts' of a Christmas past Bring your children and grandchildren to a Living History day. As expected, our daughter the boys mum hitched a lift. We arrived in good time and started with a cup of tea and a cake.
We then spent a very nice hour out in the gardens, primarily the stumpery. The boys were really impressed and at no point were the words "I'm bored" uttered. To the house; The way in which we are guided around the basement is excellent No rushing, poking our noses into rooms, cupboards and drawers we were told to do it.
The ghosts, we are told, are under instructions not to acknowledge or presence in any way. But, we were all able to stir the Christmas cake mix and make a wish However, they are aware of the need to encourage and do it so well. The cook, rightly, ignored her, however, having completed his sentence, the under butler proceeded to ask the cook the same question as the little girl had asked, he, of course, got a full answer, couched in terms a 6 year old could understand, very well done both!!
And the under butler winked at the little girl as he left. The day was rounded off with the 'servants' singing carols in the rotunda, around the Christmas tree Our visit took the whole day and was a day well spent. I decided to re-visit Ickworth estate on a very sunny day in order to explore the far reaches of the estate.
