Property code: 71297

A lovingly converted former bakery, located just moments from the seafront in the seaside town of Eastbourne, benefiting from a raised patio with sea views.

Situated at the heart of the traditional seaside resort of Eastbourne, cross the road to start the day with a bracing swim at the town’s wide shingle beach, before spending the day exploring independent art, gift and craft shops and a variety of eateries. Sleeping eight across four bedrooms, the property is perfect for family gatherings, celebratory get-togethers.   Whether relaxing on the beach, canoeing in the bay or tackling a range of land based outdoor activities, there is something to keep every party member happy. Just remember to reunite for a sociable meal at the large dining table come the evening.

 

This 18th-century former bakery has been thoughtfully updated to create a comfortable and characterful holiday cottage. Traditional exposed beams and brick walls echo the origins of the building, whilst the retained original features add authentic charm. With a neutral, light palette in delightful contrast to the dark wood furniture and floral textiles, this spacious yet cosy cottage is a welcoming home from home. The delightful entrance hall has space for coats and boots, as well as offering a quiet spot to relax and read should a little solitude be required. With a few steps down to the cosy lounge, the split level creates different areas to socialise, and with the comfy sofa and armchairs it is the perfect place to relax together with a film after a busy day. The compact kitchen is ideal for preparing a home cooked meal, whilst the dining room, with its feature fireplace and original bread oven is a quirky and characterful setting for sociable, family mealtimes. The ground floor is completed with a twin bedroom, whilst upstairs there is one double and two twin bedrooms. With one en-suite and a family bathroom upstairs and a spacious wet room with shower downstairs, careful consideration has been given to the practical requirements of those on group holidays. Outside, there is private access to a raised courtyard with views to the sea, and there is a private parking space within a gated carpark 0.1miles away.

The only thing I didnt like was the alleyway, the rubbish bins and the amount of rubbish left there. It was cleared of rubbish the day we were leaving. This isnt any fault of the owner of the property and it didnt spoil our holiday. Mrs. Norris was very helpful and thoughtful regarding the property. Had a great holiday!

This property was ideal for four adults and three grandchildren. The beach is three minutes walk away across a single road. Unlike Brighton etc there are so many beaches that none are crowded.

The private car park is adjacent, as is the small patio. The property is very well equipped incl washing machine, dishwasher, freezer. Hide

The interior is lovely. However, it was a struggle for more than 2 people to work in the kitchen at the same time. The cottage was clean but despite comments from previous guests, nothing has been done about a large stain on the lounge carpet. The front door faces onto an alley which is a fly tip area. Each day you are accosted by overflowing, smelRead morely bins (5 of them) which are constantly attacked by seagulls. The owner is fighting the local council but little is done.

The cottage was actually lovely and generally very comfy. Equipment very good and double bed in main bedroom was surprisingly very comfortable. Felt a little like being in a goldfish bowl in the lounge at night with people constantly looking in as they walked by on the path. This was easily remedied by closing the very nice curtains.
