Welcome to Pekes Manor

Pekes is an Approved and Licensed Venue for Civil Marriages and Partnerships

Pekes is a lovely old East Sussex pre-Tudor Manor House with five surrounding smaller houses, set among charming gardens within a small private estate approached by two long private drives. The estate sits peacefully in open countryside with absolutely stunning views all round, across the Wealden landscape and over to the South Downs; yet is only 50 miles from central London.

We have space for all your Celebrations. Our very large ‘Ducks’ lawn at the back of the Manor House takes marquees for up to 180 people, while there are plenty of other lawned areas, as well as The Space, a large open area to do what you like in.

You can also enjoy Pekes extensive facilities:

  • Indoor heated Swimming Pool
  • Jacuzzi
  • Sauna
  • Hard Tennis Court
  • Lawn Badminton
  • Children’s Play Area
  • Dedicated Picnic Spots
  • … or you can just walk off straight across open farmland.

Best of all perhaps, you can now have your legal Marriage Ceremony in our atmospheric beamed Tudor Dining Room, or our lovely outdoor wedding Gazebo on our Ceremony Lawn, and Stay, Marry & Celebrate in one lovely private place – romantically.

We offer you the whole of Pekes as you see it, to be yours exclusively to create your own Wedding & Celebration; we impose no suppliers, there are no extras. Our self-catering accommodation for up to 44 people is in our Manor House and the three other close-by houses. You can stay for a minimum of 2 nights, 3 nights is most popular, and if you want to stay longer – no problem.

To find out more, please download our full-colour Wedding Brochure in PDF format. You can also visit our main website: Pekes Manor, which includes additional information about all the Pekes houses, the estate, the history of Pekes, and useful resources for guests and wedding planners.

For our Prices and further details, please Contact us, and we’ll be happy to help. In the meantime, thank you to Ed and Patricia for allowing us to share their wedding celebrations in this video, recorded at Pekes in 2019.

Anyone would be silly to decide not to go with Pekes because of the way it has aged, which is what makes is so unique, full of history and different to the rest of the bland venues that are out there.Rose Campbell, August 2023
