This pretty cottage is situated at the heart of the traditional seaside resort of Eastbourne, just across the road from the town’s wide shingle beach. The town’s restored Victorian pier is just a five-minute walk away with its tea rooms, and fish and chip restaurant. Other attractions in the town include an interesting lifeboat museum, a seafront fort built during the Napoleonic Wars, and a fantastic outdoor sports centre, which offers tuition in stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing, and even raft making. There is also a good range of both high-street and independent shops in the town, as well as a wide choice of pubs, restaurants, and cafes. Other places of interest within easy reach of the property include the towns of Bexhill and Lewes, Herstmonceux Castle, Beachy Head, and Drusillas Zoo Park.

This charming period property is a fantastic example of an 18th century former bakery which has been thoughtfully updated to create a comfortable holiday cottage, whilst still retaining much of the original charm. Enter the cottage through the traditional entrance hall, where there is plenty of room to put coats and walking boots, and a quiet spot to relax and read, then take a couple of steps down to the cosy lounge/drawing room which has a beamed ceiling, comfy sofa and armchairs. Enjoy watching your favourite TV programmes on the Smart TV with DVD player, after a busy day sightseeing.  The second reception room, which has retained the original bread ovens and a feature fireplace, is a spacious dining room which offers a sociable space for entertaining at the large dining table with seating for eight. Moving through to the kitchen, guests will find everything they need to prepare and enjoy their favourite dishes including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The ground floor is completed with a twin bedroom and a spacious wet room with shower, grab rails, a folding seat and WC. Stairs lead to the first-floor accommodation where there are three pretty bedrooms. The first of these is the master bedroom, a light-filled room which offers a double bed and an en-suite bathroom with a bath with hand held shower attachment and WC. The two remaining bedrooms are both twin rooms. Also, on this floor, there is a bathroom with walk-in shower, bath and WC.

There is private access to a raised courtyard with views to the sea. There is roadside parking (subject to availability)

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Characterful cottage. Mattress in main bedroom must be upgraded as springs can be felt.

Really lovely cottage in great location for easy access to the beach. Well equipped and clean. We were blessed with glorious weather - so it was very hot in the house, particularly upstairs, but this would probably be a bonus at most times.

It seemed the property was fairly new to renting. All very clean nice bathrooms Only real criticism maybe some window blinds to the front downstairs room as it felt bit like living in a fish bowl.

A superbly renovated house with no expense spared in the kitchen, if it hadn't been for the lack of seats in the lounge I would score it 15/10!

We had an excellent stay at Ye Olde Bakery, it is a lovely, interesting building which has been really nicely decorated. It is perfectly situated, right next to the beach and not far from town and train station.
