A short stroll away from the entrance and trails of Ickworth Park, the accommodation is well equipped and very comfortable. Although near a main road, it is very quiet, only birdsong will disturb you.The owner, Caroline, was very helpful on arrival, and left us alone to enjoy our welcome break. Highly recommended.
We were invited to the evening reception of a wedding at Hengrave hall. Since we were driving from Bedfordshire we decided to make a weekend of it. The old piggery ticked all the boxes. Close to venue and a really lovely place. It was very well equipped, modern comfortable interior and exceptionally clean. The owners were around on our arrival and were very welcoming. The wine and biscuits went down a treat. We arrived on what was probably the hottest day this year . With temperatures reaching 37 the fan came in very useful! We managed to sample the local pubs too. The beehive in particular offered a decent menu and good food.Would definitely recommend as a place to stay.... fairly rural but close enough to bury st Edmunds. Thank you
We had 4 nights at the piggery and it is a really beautiful little place with very high quality everything inside from a beautiful bath to a beautiful kitchen. It is 5 minutes walk into Ickworth grounds where we took a couple of evening walks during our stay.
We had a 6 and 8 year old with us and they slept on the pull down bed, Caroline kindly provided so 4 of us were comfortable. I would say this place is perfect for anyone, apart from the elderly with mobility issues or anyone with toddlers who are likely to fall- there are a couple of steps inside that could be tricky for those groups of people but I can't imagine anyoneelse could find fault with this lovely rental. Avoid arriving in the dark as the parking is down one lane and the piggery down another lane. Beautiful setting and if we ever need to stay in Horringer again, we would not hesitate to re book this lovely spot.
A lovely cottage in a great location ideal for visiting Bury St Edmunds and just round the corner to Ickworth house. Cottage finished to a very high standard with everything you would want for a relaxing stay.
Would definitely recommend if you are visiting the area
