The Pilgrims Rest is a stunning 600 year old Wealden Hall house nestled next to Battle Abbey in the heart of East Sussex. Now licenced wedding ceremonies, this historic, rustic venue is perfect for exclusive use weddings and receptions.
All three reception rooms - the Great Hall, the Dining Room and the Webster Room -have endless original features from ancient beams, inglenook fireplaces in every room to the crown post and linenfold doors. Let's not forget the witch’s marks to ward off evil spirits, the panelled Bryant Rooms and the pargeting walls. There is even a secret tunnel hidden under the Great Hall fireplace that runs beneath the Abbey walls.
The Pilgrims Rest however is far more than just a beautiful old building. Having opened her doors to visitors and pilgrims to Battle since C1420, this grand old lady has historic soul. She has hosted celebrations from medieval banquets to Georgian balls, Victorian luncheons to Edwardian tea dances.
Over the centuries flagons of ale, goblets of wine, flutes of champagne and copious cups of tea have been consumed beneath her eaves to the sounds of ladies’ chattering and gentlemen's laughter flooding through her walls.
Pilgrims Rest is perfect for weddings and parties all year around. When the sun in shining your guests can flood out into the beautiful tended rose garden and sunny walled herb garden. As the evenings draw in, stoke up the fires, light some candles then watch as she sparkles into life.
