A house like no other

After an extensive period of restoration, Pelham House is ready to receive you as its guest.

This exclusive use, 16th century townhouse has been transformed into a luxurious wedding venue. With intimate spaces, sprawling suites, a sophisticated bar and endless manicured gardens, it’s the perfect backdrop to your big day.


£1,000 off your venue hire


The perfect place to say ‘I do’
Where Georgian charm meets modern elegance

Where ancient wood panelling is lit by contemporary statement lighting. Where chequerboard corridors lead on to reveal both stately rooms and quiet nooks. And where your friends and family can feel at home in the intimate yet gracious setting of The Goring Ceremony Room, a sun-drenched space filled with flowers and gauzy drapes.

Dine, drink and dance
A celebration you’ll never forget

The Blencowe Dining Room is a fine example of how heritage details and contemporary design come together. You’ll fall head over heels for the subtle colour palette, grand pillars and wood-panelled walls. And once the final course has been served and toast has been drunk, there’s plenty of room for a band and dancing.

A central location that feels a million miles from anywhere

The house is located in Lewes, a historic town of charming cottages surrounded by the rolling hills of the South Downs. Thanks to its town centre location, a stone’s throw from the station, all of your friends and family can be in attendance. Yet with its peaceful landscaped gardens and clifftop views you’ll feel a million miles from anywhere.

We have 29 beautifully appointed rooms for your guests to stay in. And for you, the luxurious and spacious Pelham Suite complete with cosy sofas, a huge bed and standing bath, awaits.
