The Pilgrims Rest is full of rustic charm and historic soul - a wedding venue unlike any other. Licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies, The Pilgrims Rest is a beautiful, Grade 2*listed, 600 year old Wealden hall house offering exclusive use. With architectural features from ancient beams to linenfold doors; inglenook fireplaces to oak floors, (not to mention the witch’s marks warding off evil spirits to a secret tunnel under the vaulted Great Hall), The Pilgrims Rest is an historic gem.
More than just a stunning old building, this grand old lady has opened her doors to visitors and pilgrims to Sussex since C1420. She has hosted celebrations for nearly six centuries - from Medieval banquets to Georgian balls; Victorian luncheons to Edwardian tea dances. Over the years, flagons of ale, goblets of wine and flutes of champagne have been consumed beneath her eaves, with laughter echoing through her walls.
