Certificate of Excellence
The East Wing at Ickworth was home to the Hervey family before it passed to the National Trust. The surroundings are as grand as ever but the idea that “children should be seen but not heard” has gone right out of the hundred or more windows. Where else can you go that offers luxurious surroundings, outstanding facilities, exquisite cuisine and family friendly activities? Ickworth is unique. It's also one of the finest luxury family hotels in the UK.we have recently added a Cinema room to our facilities and show children's films every day.

We stayed in a room called Amelia. It was a lovely room with a window seat over looking the Italian garden. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with any room you get. It's a lovely place with lovely staff. Enjoy your stay.
