Leave your children in our hands while you take time to relax.

Babies and children up to 8 years old will love our Ofsted-registered Four Bears' Den, where they can play, explore and get creative under the supervision of our brilliant crèche team.

Covid-19 update: In order to ensure the safety of our guests and staff, we have made some adjustments to our Den operation. Please click here for the latest information.

The Four Bears' Den, open daily from 10am to 5pm (4.30pm on Sundays), is suitable for babies and children between three months and eight years old. We offer up to 90 minutes of free childcare for each night of your stay (subject to availability, due to limited number of spaces). Additional sessions are subject to availability and charged at £15 per child per session. Non-residents and leisure members have access to the 90 minute sessions also charged at £15 per child per session.

On Wednesday and Sunday mornings there’s also the Children’s Breakfast Club for 18months+, from 8am until 9.30am. After you’ve dropped off your children at the Den you can enjoy some well-deserved ‘me’ time. Please pre-book with the Four Bears’ Den by 4.30pm on the day before (on a first come first served basis). The children will enjoy a continental breakfast and lots of fun and crafts!

The crèche team are fun, friendly and fully qualified, and will ensure your children are happy and well looked after while you take some well-deserved time for yourself. The Den is stocked with games, toys and books for all ages, and during school holidays runs a series of activities, from face painting to biscuit decorating.

The Ickworth now also offer Pushchairs to Hire
