“It is such a beautiful location and staff have been very kind. The children have loved running and cycling in the grounds and the opportunity to swim. Thank you for making us so welcome.”

I stayed at Pekes Manor with 15 friends for my 30th birthday for a weekend at the beginning of September 2014. The facilities are brilliant with plenty of space in the kitchen and dining areas for everyone, in addition to the tennis court, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna (and we used them all!). There are some pretty villages and nice local pubs a short walk away too. The house and gardens are beautiful and I would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a weekend away at a house full of history and character. Thank you, Eva!”

“Hello Eva,
Just would like to thank you for an amazing stay at the Pekes manor and Wing over the last weekend. Everything was perfect, and every one of us truly loved it. Best wishes.”

Dear Eva
Have put a review on Trip Advisor as well to say after coming here 25 years ago the magic is just as strong…everyone from 77 years old down to our granddaughter of 14 and grandson of 5 loves this place…they are begging to come again…the chickens were a big hit . .and the swimming pool and tennis courts also very popular…we are so pleased that Pekes exists…we stayed in Mounts View…after staying in Tudor View and found it relaxing and homely…our dogs Fern and Biscuit were very waggy-tailed and happy…the weather was fantastic and it was the best holiday ever…slept like a log and enjoyed relaxing in the sun…saw your cat enjoying the sun outside your summer house and chatted to a German family in Tudor View…nothing thank god has changed much…and that is how we like it…we shall continue to come back as to be honest I have never found another place like this…your orange begonias look beautiful and the whole estate has such a peaceful effect on us all…really appreciate your hard work and the love you put into Pekes…its home from home to us…regards

Michele, Kirk, Richard, Vicky, Becka, Emily, Eddie and Frankie and Sean and of course Fern and Biscuit woof…the dogs…xxxxx”

“Dear Eva,
The house was everything I had hoped for, for my Ruby Wedding celebrations. All the guests were stunned by the house and the grounds- magnificent. The catering by Julia was first class and we were all amazed at the level of cleanliness for a house so old- well done ladies. I have posted a fuller report on “Trip Advisor”
Thanks once again for allowing us to experience your house–see you for the “Golden”?? Would love to visit again.”
Dave Pashley, family and friends.

We rented the whole of Pekes for our wedding weekend at the end of May. We had the whole wedding party plus our family staying and it really was the most incredible weekend. The grounds are stunning, the houses really lovely and the staff and Eva are all delightful and helpful. There are also lots of garden games that can be put out on the main lawn (including croquet and badminton) and we had a brilliant family weekend creating beautiful memories that will last and last. We all loved it so much that, one month later, we’re already talking about coming back again next year!”

“We booked the Manor House for a weekend with 20 girls and it was the perfect stay. The House lived up to all the details Eva had given plus more. The house is full to the brim with character. The grounds are absolutely stunning and well provided for – there are games galore to keep both adults and children entertained. The swimming pool is clean and a decent size for the group. The rooms were quirky, well kept and clean. I would 100% recommend this place to friends and family.”
Laura C.

“We stayed here for a weekend with 7 other couples and kids and had a fabulous time. The house is is a fantastic place to share a weekend with friends. Don’t be fooled by the website photos as it’s far better in the flesh. We also made full use of the amazing grounds, indoor pool, table-tennis, jacuzzi and sauna. I sincerely hope it won’t be too long until we go back again. Added bonus was that bearing in mind how old this place is, it was actually lovely and warm. So, all in all a winner!”

The facilities in the house are a bit old fashioned but everything works and the overall effect is of immense period charm. We had a black tie dinner in the panelled dining room with an excellent five course dinner catered by the Pekes Manor long term caterer”.
