With its history and character, elegant sitting room warmed by a roaring log fire, and cozy, wood paneled bar, its a wonderful place to escape to and yet it is just an hour from London and 20 minute drive from Gatwick.

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

  • Gatwick, 20 minutes
  • London, 1 hour

Food

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.

Spa treatments

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.

Reflexology

Focusing on one of the most neglected parts of our bodies, the feet. This reflexology zone massage will help rebalance the body by working on reflex points in the feet which correspond to the rest of your body. An intensely nourishing Elemental Herbology body balm is used that softens and smooths even the driest of skins whilst restoring lost energy and leaving you delightfully relaxed.

Elemental Rebalancing Ritual

Created exclusively for Ockenden Manor Spa, this bespoke treatment restores balance to the whole body using the Five Elements. After selecting the Five Element oil specific to your needs, hot Thai compresses are used to eliminate toxins and release tension throughout the whole body. Stretches and acupressure help to energise the body’s flow of Qi, promoting a feeling of optimum well-being. A luxurious foot scrub is followed by a transformative facial that deeply cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates for a brighter complexion. Topped with a glass of Ridgeview Estate and a box of handmade chocolates created especially for this divinely indulgent treatment.

Five Element Aroma Facial

The bespoke facial, tailored to harmonize the Five Elements and address the key underlying concerns of the skin. This transformative facial combines healing botanicals, vitamins and marine extracts to feed the skin and restore equilibrium, while creating a more vibrant and healthy complexion.
