About Carpenter's CottageA Victorian farm cottage set on the Ickworth estate and finished with an elegant décor.
Carpenter’s Cottage is tucked away from the crowds on the 1800 acre Ickworth estate. This spacious Victorian semi-detached cottage has an elegantly relaxed interior styled with classic furnishings, an open fire and French doors that lead to a private, hedge-walled garden.
You’ll have direct access to the surrounding park and woodland, made easy to explore with extensive hiking, running and cycling trails. You’re also invited to explore Ickworth's impressive Rotunda and its Italianate garden.
Take advantage of your central location and explore further into East Anglia. The cathedral cities of Cambridge, Ely and Norwich are easily within an hour’s drive of the cottage and offer something for everyone.

The approach drive passes a pond which is a short distance from the cottage and is unfenced so children must be supervised.
