Spa & Leisure

Once occupied by the illustrious Hervey family the East Wing at Ickworth is now a decadent country hotel surrounded by Suffolk countryside … much of which belongs to the property itself, and as with all locations of impeccable taste it is also home to a particularly fine Treatment Centre.

Described as a family spa, The Ickworth welcomes guests of all ages to enjoy the beautiful pool, and most importantly the range of Elemis treatments ranging from facials to massages, reflexology, treatments for men, pre-natal treatments, and a teen collection – you get the picture.

Hotel & Accommodation

The hotel is a fusion of classic and contemporary styles, and in an upstairs/downstairs whimsical homage to its aristocratic history, offers guests the opportunity to stay in the Butler’s Lodge or the Marquis's bed chamber amongst its other twenty-seven bedrooms and eleven apartments, all of which look out onto eighteen hundred acres of National Trust garden. As you might expect, the food takes advantage of the proliferation of local ingredients both in the sumptuous adult-only Frederick’s Restaurant and in The Conservatory where there are buffets tailored to adults and children.
