OAST HOUSE (with private Jacuzzi)
This is a “Fairy Tale” house with private jacuzzi, set in the extensive grounds of a Tudor Manor House. It consists of two large (17ft diameter) round towers, which were originally used for drying hops for beer making during the late 19th century. However, hop growing did not prosper in East Sussex as it did in Kent, and the buildings became used only as barns.
A large extra barn was added to store grain in the early 1900’s. When my grandfather bought the whole property in 1908 he decided that the oasts would make an ideal dower house for his widowed mother, and it was converted to a house in 1911. The two towers were divided in halves, providing two large circular upstairs bedrooms, and two large downstairs reception rooms. The added “barn area” now forms an attractive double bedroom upstairs, with bathroom and another small bedroom and separate w.c. Downstairs a really delightful kitchen.
Mums weekend away! Total of 12 mums (aged 30ish) stayed at the Oast House October 2010. Wonderful time had by all and we are going to book again for next year. Grounds are wonderful and Hot Tub was such a bonus.
There is everything you could ever need to cook in the kitchen and ample space to all eat and relax in kitchen too. We felt the Dining room was a bit of a wasted space and would be better as a games room of some sort.
House was clean and comfortable and warm.
Very pleased with our choice.
I chose the Oast House to be the venue for my best friends 4 day Hen weekend and I was not disappointed.
We enjoyed the log fires, the long country walks, the swimming pool, tennis courts and we definitely got the most out of the hot tub!
We had Tesco deliver a huge amount of shopping which the management of the house so kindly put away for us for the time we arrived. We got in an outside caterer for the Saturday night whom I can't recommend enough (mentioned on the Pekes website)
We had such a wonderful time, everything worked out so well and the bride to be had such a lovely time.
I know that everyone enjoyed themselves immensely and I know that everyone will be very eager to recommend the Pekes houses in the future.
Perfect for a girlie getaway (there were 12 of us) and such excellent value!
