Ockenden Manor West Sussex

“This tranquil and historic manor house is just an hour from London, with lovely gardens, indoor and outdoor pool and Michelin star fine dining. Rooms exude comfort and style. Relax at the spa, explore the South Downs or sit with your favourite drink on the terrace. A beautiful mini-break location. ”

“If you like your floors uneven and your windows lead-lined, Ockenden is an Elizabethan manor house full of yellow walls, dark beams and quiet nooks. Head for the odd-sounding Raymond, a corner-room where the magnificent four-poster is offset by a flatscreen TV. The restaurant serves excellent food, especially the venison, and the wine list is dangerously extensive. The conservatory overlooks the terraced lawns and the New England Reserve nearby is good for stretching legs.”
