Pekes Manor house is our largest, oldest and most historic house. It is on 3 floors, with oak beam ceilings, panelled rooms, and many beautiful pieces of furniture and interesting pictures. Approached up an old brick path guarded by yews, the picturesque porch opens into an oak-panelled Hall with a beautiful 16th century fireplace. From there you enter the large wood-panelled dining room, with polished wood floor, which has a cosy open fireplace at one end and a large dining table that seats 12, but can be extended to seat up to 26 comfortably. Beyond that there is a comfortable TV room, a kitchen annex for preparing food and washing up (with 2 sinks, electric cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and large fridge freezer), and finally the large fully-equipped picturesque old kitchen with its original brick floor, oak beams, a huge old working open fireplace, a 4-door oil fired Aga and a microwave, with seating for at least 12 people. The kitchen has its own entrance door and looks out over beautiful countryside. There is a wood-panelled shower room/toilet off the front hall. Access to the upper floors is by front and back stairs.
On the first floor are 6 bedrooms, of which 3 are doubles, 2 are twins and one is a single. There is a bathroom with tub at each end of the corridor, and a shower room, all of these have WCs. Stairs lead up to the second floor, on which there are two triple-bedrooms (one with a double and a single, the other with three singles) and a twin.
If more accommodation is required, the house has an access door directly into the Wing, a self-contained unit that sleeps up to 6 extra people. This can be booked separately, or at the same time.
The house has a Jacuzzi, large private garden with an extensive lawn, BBQ and games room. Guests can use the lawn badminton and croquet, the indoor swimming pool, tennis court and wander round the extensive garden and park.
Pekes is a quiet rural estate in the middle of the East Sussex Wealden countryside in sight of the Downs, and provides excellent access to the sea, the beautiful Seven Sisters chalk cliffs, the seaside towns of Brighton and Eastbourne, and many interesting inland places such as Lewes. Pekes guests can also book other houses at Pekes - which with the Manor house sleep 60+ people.
