Pekes Manor and the 5 surrounding Pekes Houses provide a range of comfortable self-catering accommodation in delightfully rural East Sussex. Guests can book one or more houses - sleeping from 5 people up to 63. We have a heated indoor swimming Pool, Tennis Court, gardens, walks and the sea is 10 miles away.
This needs to be read alongside a review of a stay at the main house on the same weekend.
We booked the Tudor cottage in addition to the Main house as it meant that we could be sure we could have a good night's sleep and still enjoy the company of our 6 children, their partners and our 6 grandchildren. Whilst the main house has its own eccentric charm, the cottage offers one of the most spectacular views of the south Downs.

We hosted a wedding for approximately 130 people with a marquee in the gardens and around 55 staying in various of the houses. It was a huge success. Everyone fell in love with Pekes. The organisation was made so easy and when we arrived all the staff both for the houses and the gardens were incredibly helpful and welcoming.
Our stay at Pekes Manor exceeded expectation. The house was at capacity with 20 staying (24 for dinner) and the sun shone. We made good use of the croquet, badminton and swimming pool. Location excellent for visiting local Sussex attractions. Only negative feedback from a few of the guests was that the beds were not the most comfortable. That said, it was one of the most memorable weekends of my life - a big thank you to all the staff at Pekes. It surely is a gem of a place.
We are a family with 4 children and we had a wonderful time at Pekes. We stayed in the wing. The gardens and surroundings are so beautiful and we loved the tennis court and swimming pool. The whole atmosphere is perfect. The location is great to explore East-Sussex. We were sad to leave and we definitely want to come back!
