The Ivy House Country Hotel is a "hidden gem" nestled on the banks of Oulton Broad amongst 21 acres of gardens, lawns, ponds, marshes, and thatched barns all with direct access onto the Broads. Guests can enjoy relaxing walks in beautiful grounds or venture out onto the broads pathways, or further still to the nearby coast.

The promenade and golden beaches to the south of Lowestoft are just 5 minutes from the hotel, together with coastal walks, local attractions such as Africa Alive, Pleasure Wood Hills, and beautiful villages such as Southwold are within 15 minutes by car.

The hotel was purchased in July 2013 by Dr Adrian Parton MBE a successful businessman who has teamed up with his cousin Keith Parton, who has extensive experience in the hospitality business working with people like Marco Pierre White in Michelin Star restaurants, to create a family run business that focuses on customer needs and sets new standards of excellence.  The addition of a ‘state of of the art’ function suite, Ivy Hall, that can seat 250 people has made this the premier location in Suffolk & Norfolk to host your wedding, Charity ball.
