Child playing in our hotel crèche

Creche

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.

The Four Bears Den, open daily from 10am to 5pm (4pm on Sundays), is suitable for babies and children between three months and eight years old. We offer up to two hours’ free childcare for each night of your stay (subject to availability) – this can be extended by arrangement if there is space.

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 to 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.

Sessions

The Four Bears Den offers three complimentary sessions a day – two supervised by our fantastic crèche team, and one parent-accompanied family fun session. Supervised sessions run from 10am-12pm and 3pm-5pm (Monday-Saturday) or 2pm-4pm (Sunday). Each child is eligible for one pre-booked complimentary session each day on a first come, first served basis. A flexible, parent-accompanied family fun session runs daily from 12pm-2pm (pre-booking isn’t necessary). For more information, contact the Den team on fourbearsden@ickworthhotel.co.uk

Please note: During peak times and school holidays the Four Bears Den is likely to be fully booked for some sessions and may have a waiting list. If you have booked a session and don’t inform us of your late arrival, your place may be given to another guest after 30 minutes.
