The gardens and surrounding parkland offer some of the best walking trails and the Tea shop is divine especially afternoon tea after a long walk.

Stayed for the weekend for my boyfriend's birthday and it didn't disappoint. We stayed in the Ickworth lodge which is a 5 minute walk from the main house. It was a very comfortable room and had everything we needed. As we were staying at the...More

Our main problem was with the cafe, very slow service, limited tables, people were reserving tables before they had even ordered food/drink. We struggled to get a seat once we had got our food. Underwhelming grounds, mainly parkland rather than gardens. There was a reenactment...More

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.
