The village of Peasmarsh was originally located nearer Beckley Woods but following the devastating plague of the fourteenth century it moved nearer to the church of St Peter and St Paul which adjoins the grounds of Peasmarsh Place, now a care home, but reputedly the garden setting for Lewis Carroll’s inspiration for his published works ‘ Alice in Wonderland’ and close to the road which eventually lead to London. Today Peasmarsh is a collection of pleasing weather boarded houses together with some new houses built in small enclaves off the road and some rather grand Georgian houses, one of which is now a Hotel and Spa, The Flackley Ash. https://www.flackleyashhotel.co.uk.
There is a village school for primary and junior education https:// www.peasmarsh.e-sussex.sch.uk/esussex/primary/peasmarsh as well as newly refurbished gastro pub with rooms, called the Horse & Cart https://www.thehorseandcart.com. There is a local superstore and fuel station https:// www.jempsons.com/store/peasmarsh-superstore and a couple of public houses on the route into the village. The school buses stop outside the super market and there is a good service into Rye and Hastings.
