Owner recommendations

  • On the edge of the village of Horringer, and close to Bury St Edmunds and the River Cam, the Ickworth Hotel is surrounded by verdant countryside made for family rambling.

  • Visit the Anglo-Saxon Village and Country Park of West Stow, with family activities, nature trails, farm animals, living history events and galleries.

  • Admire the magnificent architecture of Cambridge, where ancient university buildings, museums and art galleries line the banks of the River Cam.

  • If your children are into aircrafts, tanks, military vehicles and boats, you’re not far from Duxford’s Imperial War Museum.

  • Head to the seasonal Milton Maize Maze, with its family fun field, go karts, pet paddock and tractor rides.

  • Animal lovers won’t want to miss out on Colchester Zoo – with over 260 species and 60 acres of parkland and lakes to explore.

  • Barrow Hall Stables, the local riding stables are only 10 minutes away and open daily.

  • Visit Jimmy's Farm, as seen on TV, it is a working farm with lots to keep children entertained.

  • The first ever Go Ape course, with tree top ladders, bridges and tunnels as well as the country’s best zip lines, is in nearby Thetford.

  • Feel the need for speed? Try outdoor karting at Red Lodge, just 25 minutes away from the hotel.
