About Horringer Park GatesStay 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.
Nearby, the town of Bury St Edmunds is just three miles away. Explore the wide area of restaurants, shops, Regency theatre and brewery. Further afield, the cathedral city of Cambridge is a must see.
