The venue

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 II* 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.

The Pilgrims Rest has been designed and furnished to need little decoration, but one to which you can add to make it your own.   There are no corkage charges, no fixed suppliers and no hidden extras.  You can choose to have a DIY wedding, a fully catered wedding or anything in between, giving you the flexibility to create your wedding day just how you want it to be.  The Pilgrims Rest is a truly unique wedding venue that is beautiful yet affordable; aspirational yet relaxed.

The Pilgrims Rest is perfect for weddings all year round, no matter what the weather.  When the sun is shining your guests can flood out into the sunny gardens and as the evenings draw in – stoke up the fires, light some candles and watch as this grand old lady sparkles into life.
