With the next half term holiday on the horizon this is a great time to visit and enjoy all the relaxation The Ickworth has to offer.
Autumn is a lovely time of year here at The Ickworth hotel, with the colder nights, crisp mornings, and mist settling across the wonderful parkland. It looks magical outside and feels warm and comforting when you enter the cosy Drawing Room and the fire is blazing. Borrow a pair of wellies from the front door and go on a romp around the estate and look out for deer and other animals. Or enjoy a swim in our warm swimming pool, please borrow our floats and noodles. When you've finished, relax in the Library with a glass of wine and a juice for the little one while finding a good book to read from our extensive collection! We have a fabulous range of children's books to fire up the young imaginations, from the prickly back of the Gruffalo to the magical tale of Wind in the Willows.
Our Four Bears' Den team run a full program of activities suitable for those aged from 18 months to 8 years. For each night stayed children can enjoy 90 minutes in the Den where they will have fun and get creative with the superb Den team (OFSTED registered).
Food is an important part of your Ickworth experience and our Head Chef creates mouth-watering menus to reflect the time of year. The focus is upon simplicity, locality and seasonality and the dishes look stunning and taste delicious. Read more about our wonderful local suppliers. The children’s menus are designed to be enjoyed by all and they include perennial favourites and healthy dishes that they will love. With flexible options to dine as a family or feed the children early and then enjoy a candlelit dinner for two, every evening will be just as you need.
Getting away for a half-term break is a good way to reset & recharge away from the usual routine, having time to focus on just having fun together is really important for the whole family. Discover our seasonal offers or book to stay for half term and enjoy some well deserved time away together.
