Sleeps up to 20 people in 8 bedrooms. Pekes is a fine and interesting early Tudor manor house, with many original and period features. There are four bathrooms, a large wood-panelled dining room, a beautiful old kitchen with an Aga, and a sitting room. It has a large private garden space, with a huge lawn ending in enormous yew topiary ducks.
The manor house is our largest, oldest and most historic house. It is on three 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.

Beyond that there is a comfortable TV room, a kitchen annex for preparing food and washing up (with two 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 four-door oil fired Aga and a microwave, with seating for at least 12 people.
