Ockenden Manor Hotel & Spa

Traveller (209)

Ockenden Manor is a charming and tranquil Elizabethan Manor House tucked away in Cuckfield, one of the prettiest Tudor villages in England. With its history and character, elegant sitting room warmed by a roaring log fire and cosy, wood panelled bar, it's a wonderful place to escape to and yet it is just an hour from London and 20 minutes drive from Gatwick. The hotel is set in nine acres of peaceful gardens and parkland with views across the West Sussex countryside to the South Downs and some of the great gardens and stately homes of Sussex and Kent are within easy reach.

This hotel is brilliant, we stayed in the spa rooms which, in my opinion is what makes this hotel so good! The spa is fabulous and the treatments are of very good quality. It is great that there are free to use coffee machines and a great selection of different coffees and teas.

I am sorry I could not tell you . We only had the bar menu so cannot tell you anything about their main meal menu.. Have you checked on their website you might find more details there.

I’m sorry, I really don’t know, I only went there once for afternoon tea. I do know, though, that some chefs prefer not to have Michelin stars because they say it puts too much pressure on them, which I can understand.

If you intend to use the spa, the junior spa suites are perfectly located & air conditioned. Nice pool too. Restaurant excellent & the hotel is located in a quaint, very old English village. We really liked it.
