Beautiful and well maintained gardens, a pleasure to explore, especially the Stumperies. Cafe was clean and well staffed, with fresh flowers (orchids) on the tables. The scone of the month was Strawberry and was delicious.

Ickworth is only about 3 miles outside Bury St. E. The gardens are exceptionally laid out, and the Stumpery - a sun-dappled, branch overhung avenue with dead tree stumps as art installations and curios, is an excellent feature. The house is interesting, the round central...More

This house is very striking and original in it's architecture. We took the state room tour, which is available before the house opens for free flow. It was very interesting and the guide was very knowledgeable. We then looked round the rest of the house...More

I know dogs are not permitted in the play area but does the fencing restrict vision? I'd like to watch my kids while with the dog outside the fence.

Some areas are suitable. There's an under the stairs tour which is really good. I think I recall a lift. The staff are very helpful so if there's a way they will organise it for you. There's a lovely café.
Is parking and just exploring the grounds free.
