About this property

Home to the Hervey family for 200 years, dog-friendly The Ickworth in Suffolk is an incredibly luxurious hotel that is a great holiday base for couples and families. Situated within 1,800 sprawling acres of National Trust parkland, the hotel grounds are perfect for peaceful strolls or jogs with your dog in tow. The most striking thing you’ll notice as you arrive is the Rotunda. At over 100 feet high, this impressive building was the brainchild of Fredrick Augustus, 4th Earl of Bristol and the Bishop of Derry (also known as the Earl-Bishop), created to house his family and provide galleries for his art collection. Only two hours from London, spend your days roaming the Suffolk countryside with your pet before enjoying a pampering session in the hotel treatment rooms, followed by dinner and drinks at Frederick’s Restaurant. Thetford forest is just a 30-minute drive, with countless trails, sights, and smells, furry family members are sure to keep wagging throughout your trip.

Dine with Your Dog

Dine with your pooch in either the drawing room or library. From rabbit lasagne to sausages and mash, The Ickworth’s expert chefs create fabulous seasonal menus using only the best local ingredients and vegetables picked from their own walled garden. The Ickworth offers a range of flexible dining options – from big breakfasts, leisurely lunches and afternoon tea to family dinners and romantic meals. Make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment!

Bow wow factor

This place is extremely dog-friendly, and the glorious parkland will provide lots of opportunities to take many wonderful strolls.
