Priory Court, the historic hotel in Pevensey has gone up for sale with a guide price of £997,750.

The hotel, which has been lovingly restored by partners Peter and Vicky has become a focal point of business and social activity in the village.

A full tribute to the work of Peter and Vicky is to be published in edition 29 of the Pevensey Bay Journal, soon to be available.

In an article dated 3 February 2015 Bay Life said,” PRIORY COURT HOTEL: This is where the great Pevensey regeneration story began

“What was first a blueprint has become a sustainable working model for the kind of business activity that is piece perfect for what the local economy needs.

“It is the same blueprint and big plan and the same attention to detail that has marked out the project since the start.

“Put the plan into the history blender, the castle conveniently arching its treasures right in front of you, the High Street from where five people set off to witness the sealing of the Magna Carta in 1215. and the hotel that dates back as a building to 1641.

“Suddenly what comes into sharp relief is a focal point for local economic and social activity, somewhere that is finding its place again in the story book setting that is Pevensey.

Perhaps people that doubt the value of the enterprise to the locality have not had the opportunity to study what has been done and how it has been done.

“The future for the local economy is starting to look a little brighter.

“It is to the Priory Court Hotel that we need to look, if we are trace back to when some of these developments began.

“”UPDATE 14 October 2017
Pevensey after all is the place that became the starting point for the landmark BBC2 Series, ‘The Great British Story, a Peoples’ History’. The celebrated TV historian, Michael Wood, began with these words, when he came to Pevensey ‘this is where it all began’. At the time he would have been hard pressed to find somewhere remotely resembling a tea room in the High Street.

“Bay Life says that with the Priory Court Hotel, and the work done in 2013, that this is where the great Pevensey regeneration story began.
