My sister came with my niece and nephew to visit so decided to take them there for a day out. There are acres of land to walk around and the house is very impressive to see, inside tours available but extra fee. Excellent parking and family picnic and play ground area

This is well worth a visit. Very extensive grounds and a large house to view. We were told on arrival that there was a guided tour starting in 5 minutes with plenty of spaces. When we got there all the places had gone but we still enjoyed walking round the house and there are enough stewards around in the house... More

We went to Ickworth to see the Napoleonic reenactment weekend. It was a beautiful setting with lovely weather and the groups were great. Would really recommend for a great day out.

We had a tour of the servants' quarters and it was fascinating. Very Downtown Abbey. Very real. We visited during our stay the attached hotel.

Beautiful place that brings back so many memories of my childhood, we had a relaxing walk around the grounds. Always something entertaining going on and the play park is fun for all ages, the atmosphere in the restaurant is just perfect and our waitress Alina was extremely attentive and professional a lovely afternoon.

The past and the present combined in a very clever way. Lots to see and do and explore. Vast space to walk and run or just sit and count your blessings. Very well maintained property and extremely popular. A great day out for the whole family.
