Welcome to the peace and tranquility of Lavender & Sage, set in a beautiful cottage garden in the heart of The High Weald Of Kent.

At Lavender & Sage we offer indulgent Afternoon Spa Escapes & bespoke B & B. The Scandinavian style cottage is set in beautiful, secluded gardens. Unlike many Spas, your booking includes exclusive use of the cottage and facilities. Every booking includes the use of pool towels, gowns and sliders.


Step inside Sage Cottage to relax and unwind in luxurious, soothing surroundings. The cottage has everything you could wish for to give you the best B & B or Spa Escape experience. There is a fire pit area, deck and in the summer a hammock area.

Afternoon Spa Escapes include everything on the Summer or Cosy Spa page, the price is at the bottom of the page. To book please contact me directly.

If you would like a B & B booking please go to the Availability page. In the booking section you may select any of the seasonal extras from the Summer or Cosy Spas.

At Lavender & Sage you can relax, connect with nature & have fun on the adult swing & slide. B & B guests will wake up to bird song, enjoy the serene & beautiful gardens and watch glorious sunsets over our paddock and open countryside.

In the Winter the cosy treats include the steamy hot tub, hot stone back massages, delicious cream teas and cosy fire pit with sparklers, toasting marshmallows and hot toddies.

In the Summer enjoy the bubbly hot tub, have refreshments by the pool, unwind with a relaxing aromatherapy back massage, eat your delicious cream tea up in the oak tree and then relax in the hammocks. To end the day watch the sunset or go on a glow worm hunt.

A little bit about me. I am a fully qualified therapist, trained to the highest standards, with a wealth of knowledge and experience from a varied and comprehensive career in the Complimentary health business. I am a member of the accredited, professional body, the Federation of Holistic Therapists. I have worked at the BBC, LWT and post production film companies offering On Site Massage. I was the first person to introduce massage into the Television industry.

I use Temple Spa & Neal's Yard massage products and fragrance the cottage with NEOM. Only the best for my guests.

My journey beating breast cancer opened my eyes to what is really important in life. It is too easy for us to get swamped by work & pressures of daily life. We need to slow down and try and let go of stress and anxiety. Enjoy the simple things in life, laughing & having fun with friends and loved ones, watching the beauty in nature around us. The best things in life are free.  Life is too short to waste it. Set aside mobile phones & posting on social media instead really be in the moment, live life to the max and do what makes you truly happy.

I love seeing guests having the best time, releasing their inner child, whizzing down the slide, flying high on the swing or writing their names with sparklers.                                                *  Make magical memories *


“Alison is a truly wonderful masseuse, I am so lucky to have found her! As a chiropractor I hugely value massage as a crucial part of maintaining my overall wellbeing, as well as strongly recommending patients to do the same. With Alison you can feel she has years of experience and her ability to use such varied techniques to suit the body is amazing. I love the way she is so in tune with the body’s senses and creates such a calming environment; you can’t help but relax. After my massage I walked away feeling so much better, lighter, and freer. I’ve been excited to refer people to her as I know they’ll feel great afterwards! Her knowledge of the body and advice have been very useful and the gorgeous natural products she uses are a real treat. To find someone who clearly loves what they do and puts their all into it, I can’t be more grateful.”

Zoe, Chiropractor at SHC, Staplehurst

“I have been having regular massage treatments with Alison for several years and in my opinion she is an excellent therapist. Alison takes great care to consider that every aspect of her treatment is tailored to meet her client’s individual needs. Each treatment is a superbly relaxing, multi-sensory experience but she also knows exactly how to work on any problem areas for a therapeutic effect. I would recommend Alison to anyone looking for a sensitive and extremely effective therapist.”

Kate, Staplehurst

“Alison has been treating me with her amazing deep tissue massage, every month for more than 8 years. I drive long distances for work and suffer from tension and back spasms, which Alison alleviates. I am now also benefiting from Indian Head Massage which is extremely relaxing.”

Mandy, Headcorn

“I found Alison after being referred by a friend. I love the setting of her beautiful cottage and always unwind as soon as I step inside, it’s so peaceful and calm. Alison always thoroughly explains whichever treatment option I chose and gives me a full consultation. She takes her time and listens well and always treats me like an individual and addresses any physical issues I have. After a treatment with her ‘healing hands’ I always feel totally relaxed, relieved of aches and pains and ready to face the world feeling renewed. I thoroughly recommend Alison, she is very kind, skilled, sensitive and experienced.”

Andrea, Maidstone

“Having had many relaxing treatments with Alison, I have always been fortunate to leave feeling relaxed and free of knots and aches. Alison is a most natural and holistically caring therapist who keeps up with new techniques and therapies to help her many clients.”

Sharon, Staplehurst

“Alison is very professional and soon puts you at ease. Can honestly say it was the best massage I’ve ever had. She has a really sensitive touch and soon finds all the tension and knots. The massage was deep and full of different techniques to ease out my knots. I really enjoyed the massage as I felt the tension melt away. Couldn’t recommend her enough.”

Karen, Cranbrook
