About Pekes Manor Estate

Pekes Manor is a Tudor country house dating from 1470, and the estate has been owned by the same family for over a hundred years.

The accommodation on the estate is flexible. The Manor sleeps 20 in 8 bedrooms, although there are other properties on the estate allowing up to 62 guests (The Oast House 12, Mounts View 12, The Wing 6, Gate Cottage 5, Tudor View 7).

The Manor House though, is the jewel in the estate’s crown. There are five bedrooms on the first floor and three on the second, which are known as the old nurseries. Downstairs, there’s a large living room with a television, and two kitchens. There is also an oak-paneled dining room (which can seat up to 26, should you have the urge for a fine banquet).

The Pekes Estate has extensive gardens and parklands of 28 acres, which are shared by the guests of the other houses. Guests can buy vegetables from the well-stocked kitchen gardens, and fresh eggs from the Pekes’ hens.

Should you be feeling energetic, there is anindoor heated swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, lawn badminton, hard Macadam style tennis court, and endless lawns for boules and croquet.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“The Pekes Estate has a long and well-documented history, and the dining hall in particular is worthy of note, as is the old kitchen, which, despite having an enormous Aga, still has its working fireplace, thought to date from 1550. My favourite thing though, has to be the humour in the garden, and the jolly march of the six-foot topiary ducks.”

About the Location

The Pekes estate is in East Sussex, just above Eastbourne and about 20 miles (40 minutes drive) from Brighton. The house is 20 minutes’ drive from the beach at Pevensey Bay.

Things To Do

The Pekes Estate is perfectly placed for lots to do. Not only is there the beach, but also many other places of interest to visit, like Battle House (Battle of Hastings), and other grand houses such asHerstmonceux andMichelham Priory (which has the longest moat in England).

There are great treats for walkers and cyclists too, with The VanGuard Way, the Weald Way and a famous (mostly) non-road traffic trails, the South Downs Way.

If you’d like a bit of nightlife, there are great local pubs, or there’s the delights of Brighton, with all of its distractions.

Weddings

Pekes Manor makes a great reception venue, and its gardens make beautiful backdrops (especially the giant topiary ducks). There are several local registry offices and churches nearby.

You can invite up to 150 guests, 63 of whom can stay in various self-catered properties on the estate.

Reviews

We hosted a family and friends party for 50 (renting the Oast, Wing and Garden Cottage as well as the Manor). We catered for ourselves in the most magnificent kitchen and dining room. We used the Wing as the dance floor and managed to arrange trestle tables in the dining room to seat 54. We easily accommodated other guests at the Travelodge and Boship hotel. We walked to the local pub, had a ceilidh on Saturday night and a table top puzzle room on the Sunday morning. We made use of as many of the facilities as time and weather would allow. We walked to the wonderful traditional 6 Bells pub at Chiddingly. The swimming pool was enjoyed by us all. It's warm and wonderful as not chlorinated and the ambience with plants all around This was the most wonderful venue you could ever find and some of the properties are dog-friendly too. There are romantic authentically old bedrooms, furnished with charming antiques. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were, even the pull down double in the Wing! There's a massive kitchen fireplace and a huge kitchen table for eating or buffet, an oak paneled dining room and hall. You have to see this place and live in it to experience its magic, None of the photos do it justice.
