About Horringer Park Gates

Stay in this characterful Georgian cottage, once the home of the Ickworth estate gatekeeper.

Horringer Park Gates is located just within the entrance to the 1800-acre Ickworth estate, and within Horringer village. Bordered by woodland, this one and a half storey Grade II listed gatehouse has changed little in two centuries, with recent renovations very much in keeping with the original style of the building. Modern furnishings run throughout, but rustic beams, red clay tiling and arched latticed windows give it a rustic edge.  

If you can wake up early enough, and rouse yourself from the comfy beds, then take advantage of 24 hour access to the estate’s sweeping parkland. Later, head to Ickworth House. This stunning property boasts a unique central rotunda built by the 4th Earl of Bristol to show off the priceless treasures he collected on his Grand Tour. 

Surrounded by countryside with 1,000 years of history to explore, Bury St Edmunds offers visitors award-winning restaurants, fantastic shopping, annual festivals, and a great day out for families. From the magnificent St Edmundsbury Cathedral, and historic ruins of the 11th century Abbey of St Edmund, to the artisan, independent shops surrounding the medieval grid of the town centre.

Further afield visit the ancient university town of Cambridge, only 40 minutes away, take to the water and explore the city by punting tours and relax in the green spaces of one of the many parks. For a day trip, discover the varied and picturesque coastline on the Suffolk Coast. A chance to see the flourishing wildlife which makes Suffolk its home and plenty of walks taking in the beautiful views.

Notes for guests

Please Note: Over the next year, Ickworth is set to secure its future – with your help – thanks to a major new conservation project. Ickworth is embarking on a multi-million pound major conservation project which will see us heading up to the roof. The iconic Rotunda, the original vision of the Earl Bishop in 1795, has stood proud in the Suffolk countryside for many years. However, like any house, it needs support and protection to make sure it will stand for generations to come. To find out more about the work visit Ickworth Uncovered and discover how Ickworth will be re-imagined during these conservation works.

The holiday cottages and remainder of the wider estate will be unaffected. Cottage guests out of hours access to the park will be maintained.

Access: If you would like a copy of the access statement for this cottage please call the team on 0344 800 2070.

Heating: Oil central heating is included.

Parking: There are 2 parking spaces on the driveway to the side of the cottage, there is also an unloading bay in front of the cottage.

Garden: The cottage is surrounded by garden, although the main garden is to the rear of the building and can be accessed from the back hall.

Children: The cottage has a steep and winding flight of stairs and there is a pond behind the 5ft fence in the corner of the garden.

Please note: Due to the style of the building, both bedrooms are in the eaves so have a restricted height and sloping ceilings. The stairs are steep and winding.

The cottage is located at the entrance gate for Ickworth House, Park and Hotel so please be aware that the drive is in frequent use and due to livestock in the park has a cattle grid at the entrance.

Offers: Holiday cottage guests have free entry to all National Trust properties during the period of their stay.  Full details in the confirmation email upon booking. In addition, guests will be able to enjoy Ickworth Park after hours.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
