Eating and shopping

We invite you to enjoy time with friends and family this spring in the glorious parkland and gardens. Complete your day with a warming meal or light snack in the restaurant and enjoy a browse in our shop. Take time to sit back and relax and get away from it all and let us do the washing up.

Nature's playground

Ickworth's 1,800 acres are perfect for you, family and friends to get outdoors and closer to nature. Explore on a marked trail, or make your own. Discover your favourite view or special place.

Family time

Tranquil walks ... or get outside, go wild and get mucky and try a few wet weather 50 things. Our parkland and restaurant make for a great day out for all the family, so come along and see us.

We've four beautiful holiday cottages on the estate for you to enjoy. Each cottage has its own special place from secluded woodland glade to being surrounded by sheep and water birds. There's also the very special Ickworth hotel designed especially for a great family break to spoil your children and yourself. Suffolk has so much to explore and enjoy and with Bury St Edmunds on our doorstep, Ickworth makes for a very special place to stay.

Packed with history, entertainment and quirky and unusual shops, there's loads to do. It's home to some great restaurants, real ale pubs and bistros.
