    Ockenden Manor is a charming and tranquil Elizabethan manor house tucked away in Cuckfield, one of the prettiest Tudor villages in England.

    Ockenden is perfectly placed for walking the beautiful South Downs and the Cuckmere Valley, the setting for the pretty village of Alfriston. By contrast, the famous resort of Brighton with its landmark Royal Pavilion and the historic county town of Lewes are just a short drive away.

    Distances

    The restaurant at Ockenden Manor offers a superb fine dining experience in the beautiful new dining room, overlooking the gardens with stunning views of the South Downs National Park.

    Under the expert guidance of head chef, Stephen Crane, the restaurant serves some of the finest food in southern England incorporating the freshest ingredients, sourced locally in Sussex whenever possible. Guests have a choice of fixed price menus including Stephens selected Cuckfield menu or the gastronomic seven course tasting menu. An inspired wine list complements the cuisine at lunch or dinner.

    Nestling in the warm green of the West Sussex countryside, Ockenden Manor Spa has been designed to create a haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Purpose-built inside a 19th century walled garden, the contemporary airy structure contrasts and complements its neighbor, the Elizabethan Ockenden Manor, and shares it nine acres of parklands and gardens.

    Isopod flotation

    For complete tranquility and calm, nothing compares to an hour spent in our isopod flotation tank. Body temperature saltwater suspends you effortlessly, allowing every muscle total relaxation. Research shows that not only is it an invaluable injury rehabilitation aid, it relieves pain and boosts the immune system. A boon to meditation, its also proven to reduce stress, encourage endorphins, and promote mental clarity.

    Ila Kundalini back treatment

    Kundalini-female goddess of awareness in the form of a coiled snake-is the dormant energy in the base of the spine, which, when awakened, travels up the spine to the third eye. This leads to increased energy and spiritual enlightenment. This treatment is a back massage that is deeply soothing, relaxing, and balancing to the whole nervous system thanks to the synergistic use of an exquisite essential oil blend used in combination with ancient massage techniques and chakra healing.

    Reflexology

    Focusing on one of the most neglected parts of our bodies, the feet. This reflexology zone massage uses your choice of REN or ila aromatherapy oils. It will help rebalance the body by working on reflex points in the feet which correspond to the rest of your body, leaving you relaxed and helping to restore lost energy.

    Bio rhythm ritual

    This ritual is particularly suited to combat the effects of city life, frequent traveling and flying, and those feeling chronically fatigued, stressed, and depleted of energy. %The natural flow of the body's bio-rhythm is closely linked to the body's magnetic energy field. This electrical magnetic field is made up of positive and negative ions. %Negative ions charge the body with energy, vitality, and a feeling of wellness. Positive ions deplete the body's energy resulting in feeling drained, tired, and stressed. %The focus of this ritual is to restore the body's natural bio-rhythm and deeply relax the nervous system.

    A powerful, energizing full body salt scrub kick starts the treatment, followed by a cocooning mud wrap containing high levels of minerals which, as they become warm, emit large amounts of negative ions, charging and restoring the body's bio-magnetic energy field. A soothing Kundalini back massage is then given to balance and relax the nervous system, the ritual then concludes with a facial marma point massage.

    Ananda face therapy

    Ananda means bliss in Sanskrit. The techniques used in this facial come from Shaman women in Mexico, who believe that the energy of light is deeply rejuvenating. %Working with marma points to open up the energy centers of the face allowing a blissful flow of energy into the body, this is a healing and reviving treatment that brings deep feelings of peace and wellbeing and a beautifully radiant skin.

    All treatments can be purchased at an extra cost.
