Welcome to Pekes Manor House, near Hailsham, East Sussex
This exceptional large group self catering holiday home is a tile hung Tudor Manor House on three floors with oak-beamed ceilings, panelled rooms, and a croquet lawn. It is situated in unspoilt countryside up a drive of about 350 yards. This makes it peaceful and secluded and safe from the road. The holiday home sleeps up to 18 people.
At the back it looks out over a large lawn approx: the size of 2 tennis courts. The lawn badminton court is marked out at the near end of the lawn. The croquet is set up at the far end. This lawn is exclusively for the use of visitors to Pekes. The hard tennis court is out of sight and shared with other visitors. The excellent facilities include a heated indoor heated swimming pool.
