Pekes is situated twelve miles inland from Eastbourne, eighteen miles from Brighton and nine miles from Lewes in the county of East Sussex in the South East of England.
Pekes 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.
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.
There are 8 double bedrooms, large kitchen and kitchen annexe, 4 bathrooms (2 with bath, WC and basin, 2 with modern shower, WC and basin) and 3 reception rooms.
There is full oil-fired central heating. Eggs and vegetables are usually available from the gardener. Cooking, cleaning and nanny help is usually available upon request.
There is a pay phone for outgoing and incoming calls (01825 873 048).
Oak Panelled Hall with brick walk up to the entrance porch (12’ x 16’). Oak Panelled Cloakroom with basin. WC and shower (real modern mixer shower).
Oak Panelled Dining Room (24’x16’) with beamed ceiling, parquet floor, large dining table to seat 12 (has seated 18!) Fireplace with armchairs arranged around it, with the dining table at the far end of the room making 2 living rooms.

There is a stereo system in the dining room with a cassette and CD player.
