The Ickworth - Suffolk

Bury St Edmunds Suffolk, Suffolk, IP29 5QE

Venue Introduction

There's a lifestyle behind Luxury Family Hotels; a lifestyle based on quality family time, on fun and laughter and on living life to the full. We take life's simple pleasures and wrap them in comfort.
We understand how important it is to spend time as a family, to have some well-earned time out as a couple or alone, and that your children have the time of their lives. There are lots of family friendly holiday options out there, but for many you will always find a compromise – maybe the food isn't quite what you would have hoped for, but the children have a fantastic time so you live with it. Maybe the accommodation isn't quite up to scratch but it's family friendly so you accept it or maybe it ticks all your boxes but your children are simply tolerated. We aim for no compromises and believe our unique approach of combining luxury with family friendly really works.


Additional Notes:

For those looking for somewhere unique to celebrate that special occasion, the Ickworth Hotel is the perfect place.
We believe that if you really want to celebrate in style, you won’t get any better than here at Ickworth. Whether you are celebrating a birthday, a christening, your wedding anniversary or you just require a private dining room, our dedicated team will help you to organise all the finer details.??
The Ickworth is fully licensed for small intimate weddings or naming ceremonies.

Private Rooms and Dining

• The Chinese Room: For smaller groups of up to 6 people, why not try our Chinese Dining Room.  Its wallpaper is over 200 years old and if you can spot the designers signature of a red dragon fly hidden in the spectacular design, we’ll give you a complimentary glass of champagne!  It’s ideal for evening dinner parties. (Please note that this room is best suited for evening dinner parties as owing to the age of the wallpaper we are unable to open the shutters to during the day).
• The Study: This bright and cosy room is perfect for intimate dinners for up to six people and overlooks the front garden of the hotel.
• Our Boardroom can hold up to 30 people and is ideal for family parties.  With lovely views overlooking the forest at the front of the hotel, we can help you celebrate your occasion in style.
• Fredrick’s, our fine dining restaurant, allows you to show off in style with mouthwatering dishes from our specially prepared menus.
Our team can help you arrange your whole event from reception drinks with canapes, bespoke menus and advise you on the wine to suit the menu of your choice.
Children, of course, are most welcome at The Ickworth – they’ve even got their own menu. Of course, they are free to eat from the adult menu if they wish; they can just have a smaller portion.
