Ockenden Manor Hotel & Spa is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"Hidden within Cuckfield, arguably one of the country’s prettiest Tudor villages, this Elizabethan manor house is a haven for foodies, with a Michelin-starred restaurant and sweeping views of the South Downs. The peaceful hotel is an ideal base for exploring the stately homes of Kent and Sussex, or if you want to just stop, head down to their walled garden with a coffee and a good book. Bliss."
"Tucked away in the pretty Tudor village of Cuckfield, this Elizabethan manor house could have come straight from the pages of any storybook. It is charming, tranquil, has lots of character and is heavenly romantic. Outside there’s an English country garden effect, whilst inside the elegant sitting rooms, antiques and roaring log fires make it so welcoming for wedding guests."
"The contemporary dining room overlooks the manicured grounds of this beautiful Elizabethan manor house. Chef Stephen Crane extracts maximum flavour from local ingredients to produce dishes like wild Balcombe duck breast and confit with colcannon, rainbow chard, salsify and orange. The 22 rooms are full of character and individuality."
