The Old RectoryHastings, East Sussex, England
Elegant Old Town
With a romantic garden and stylish rooms, The Old Rectory in Hastings offers luxurious and elegant gay friendly B&B accommodation – or if you book the whole house, the perfect private address for civil partnerships, private parties or wedding ceremonies.
Why get married here?
A mere stones throw from the shore, on the edge of the historic old town. A relaxed and stylish venue awaits you at The Old Rectory, Hastings, East Sussex. They offer you a bespoke service where the gorgeous contemporary house and beautiful walled garden becomes yours exclusively for the time you are with them.
Both the house and garden terrace are licensed to conduct civil ceremonies and weddings. Within the stunning garden they can accommodate up to eighty guests for your celebration using a 'capri' or traditional marquee, or for a more intimate celebration, up to forty-five guests can relax by the roaring fire and use the house to enjoy your day.
What they can provide
Whether it's a hog roast for eighty, an elegant formal four course wedding breakfast for thirty or a posh picnic with Pimm's on the lawn for fifty, they will work with you to organise a very special and individual day. The Old Rectory's own Wedding and Events Manager Tracey-Anne had her civil partnership there last summer - "We wanted a relaxed informal day, so organised a posh barbeque in the garden with lots of fizz, followed by locally made ice cream served from the Old Rectory's traditional ice cream cart and mini desserts on vintage cake stands. Our guests loved it."
The team celebrate all that is local and home baked so you can enjoy freshly caught Rock a Nore fish, home made bread, sausages, and cured bacon which combined make for fantastic evening snacks. What ever you choose you you can be assured the quality will be guaranteed.
Who will look after you and your wedding?
Tracey-Anne has over twenty years experience managing hotels and organising events from Cape Town to Brighton via Oxfordshire and London. Tracey-Anne will be happy to personally work through the process with you and is also there on the day to support the operations team.

Located at the back of the old town and just a few minutes walk to the sea. Whether you are after a day on the sands or a decent seaside latte and a shop, Hastings Old Town offers a good deal of both.
It’s easy to reach and difficult to leave. The town is just a one hour 30 minute train journey from London and an hour's drive from Ashford and the Eurostar terminal. If you bring a car (there is some parking and permits for nearby carparks are available) you can easily head out to Rye, Battle, Eastbourne and Brighton to explore. Or go inland to rolling countryside, wineries, renowned gardens and historic buildings.

We have just got back from a lovely weekend at The Old Rectory in Hastings. The accommodation was spot on and the service was great.
