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.

We visited on easter weekend, it was really busy but you wouldn't be put out. This really is a fantastic place, gardens are well maintained and there are brilliant walks. Food is a little pricey but we will definitely be returning soon.

We visited at Easter Weekend....been to similar homes like this such as Audley End, Melford Hall etc, Immediately noticed the fact that the National Trust still expect everybody to automatically pay a higher £14.00 Admission Charge - which includes a voluntary donation - without mentioning or explaining that they are doing this, or the fact that there is a lower...

Queues at entrance,which we discover are due to hard selling of membership sales - get out of the way, here is our entrance fee now let us in! Only not that simple, as a matter of default they charge an enhanced, extra donation admission. You are forced in front of slowed-up queue to explain you do not want it. One... More

We visited Ickworth House on Easter weekend and had a fantastic time. £35 for a family entry is not too expensive when you equate this to less than £10 per person to visit the house and tour the gardens. The house is not your typical stately home, the owners over the years have been traditionally quite eccentric and this is... More
