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.

Just moments from Eastbourne’s Victorian pier and traditional seafront, this delightful property offers a remarkable stay on the South coast. Offering a comfortable stay for any family or group of friends, the property happily sleeps eight guests and two of your four-pawed pals. Look forward to an evening of relaxation after a long day exploring nearby Brighton, Hastings or the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Filled to the brim with original features and fascinating nooks and crannies, this converted 18th century bakery provides an entirely unique stay. Exposed brickwork, original oak beams and an authentic bread oven contribute to the overall charm of this pretty property. On arrival, stop off in the spacious hallway to hang up outerwear and walking boots. The heart of this house is its stunning dining room which boasts more than enough space for eight to dine together. Step into the lounge to unwind on an evening, enjoying a program on the TV or simply catching up over a bottle of wine. When it’s time for bed you’ll find a twin bedroom on the ground floor and three further bedrooms upstairs on the first floor, all of which offer pleasant spots to catch 40 winks and prepare for the day ahead.

Set off and explore the picturesque Eastbourne, dropping into the town’s traditional seaside pier (0.5 miles) or discovering the busy town centre (0.5 miles). The wide shingle beach is well worth a visit and can be found less than 300 metres from your door. Further beautiful Sussex spots can be visited close by, including Brighton (21.5 miles) and Hastings (16 miles). Jump into the car to see these beautiful seafront locations or get there in under an hour from Eastbourne’s well-connected train station (1 mile)!

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

Located just across the road from Eastbourne’s wide shingle beach, find a good range of independent shops and a wide choice of pubs, restaurants, and cafes. For outdoor activities try the high ropes at Go Ape Bedgebury (27.5 miles) and the giant swings, climbing wall and high ropes at Branching Out Adventures (19 miles). Have a go at paddleboarding and kayaking with Buzz Active Eastbourne (1 mile) and kite surfing at Be-Rad Watersports (4 miles).

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.
