Stay in a holiday cottage at Ickworth

View of the Round House holiday cottage sitting in the Ickworth parkland

A popular holiday destination, Suffolk is a region of curiosities, character and great food. Just 3 miles from Ickworth is the historic town of Bury St Edmunds, a hidden gem in the heart of Suffolk. With great food, coastlines and beautiful landscapes all around, it's a great destination for a holiday or short break.

Gardens House

Set right in the heart of the estate, Gardens House offers the perfect family accommodation, sleeping six people in three bedrooms. It has a wonderfully cosy, relaxed feeling, there are loads of walks to explore and dogs are very welcome.

This detached house has its own totally private, walled rear garden with seating provided beside espaliered fruit trees, shrubs and a mulberry tree and direct access through the garden wall to the surrounding parkland. The garden is perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining.

The Round House

Set in a woodland glade, the Round House offers some wonderful parkland walks from the doorstep. You'll wake up in the morning to the sound of birdsong and see deer trotting past the garden. This unspoilt location offers tranquillity and beauty for you and your family. If you have dogs, they'll love you for this treat.

The Round House, with its unique appearance and equally fascinating history, was first used as a shooting lodge and then a gamekeeper's cottage. It now offers a very cosy and comfortable stay at the heart of the estate. The Round house sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

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.

Keeper's Cottage and Carpenter's Cottage

These spacious Victorian cottages sit side by side and have relaxed and comfortable interiors. Keeper's Cottage sleeps six people in four bedrooms and Carpenter's Cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms. The cottages can be hired individually, or for larger groups, the two cottages can be joined to create a five bedroom house.  A perfect place for a celebratory event or holiday.

The cottages are set in the heart of the working estate with easy access to lots of parkland walks. Dogs are not allowed in these cottages due to their proximity to the working farm.
