From the moment you arrive The Ickworth is set to impress. Beautiful parkland surroundings and wonderful buildings. We stayed in the Lodge previously the Dower House. Though this is 800m away from the main house, we saw that as an advantage as we had all the benefits of the luxury surrounding but in an even more secluded setting and a cheaper rate to boot. Our room (Ludwig's) was fantastic opening directly onto the lawns. On the weekends breakfast is served in the Lodge and it was great, the kids can go play outside whilst you finish your grown up breakfast (assuming they let you :-)). The facilities are great, lovely swimming pool, bicycle and kids pay areas. The NT house and gardens are also very impressive and free to guests. We made use of the free session in the Four bears creche to have our grown up time, the staff were very friendly and great with the kids. The creche staff organise a kids high tea, which is recommended not least becasue grown ups are served drinks froim the bar at the same time. Both restuarants serve high quality food and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Previous reviews made comment on the inexperienced waiting staff, though this is true, it did not detract from the quality of our stay. If you're looking for an escape with young children then the Ickworth comes highly recommended, reassuringly expensive, but you get what you pay for,
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
