With 1,800 acres of Capability Brown designed parkland to explore, The Ickworth is dog heaven. An Italianate mansion in the heart of rural Suffolk, The Ickworth truly is a place to step back into history. With its impeccably preserved Georgian architecture and romantic gardens, it offers a comfortable and charming escape for all the family. Kids can stumble across secret gardens, play areas and lakes, finding trees for climbing and sheep to befriend. The Ickworth is a luxurious experience: guests are encouraged to seek woodland cycle adventures, relax with a dip in the heated indoor pool, partake in a game of tennis, or unwind with a spa treatment.
The hotel has a strict ‘pooches welcome’ policy, meaning your canine friends are welcomed with open paws, and each of the stately yet relaxing bedrooms are entirely dog friendly. We even offer an ‘A la Bark’ menu and ‘Waggy Tails Tea’, to give your pooch the holiday they deserve. As well as dogs, it caters perfectly for children too, a complimentary childcare session per child for each night you stay and a baby listening service. Through genuine hospitality the hotel offers the gift of time. Time for adventures, time away from the day to day, and time to create wonderful family memories.
