About The Old Bakery

The Old Bakery at Divan Court, can be found nestled in the heart of the historic village of Eastling, famously mentioned in the 'Doomsday Book'. This cosy holiday home is attached to a 13th Century farmhouse adding to the charm of the location.

The original bakery bread oven in the inglenook adds further character to this hideaway home. The Old Bakery offers a private enclosed garden, where you can relax, unwind and watch the chickens roaming in the adjacent field.

The open plan living space provides everything you will need for a truly romantic retreat including a woodburning stove, surrounded by beautiful countryside and after exploring the local area, enjoy a drink at the typically English village pub, which is just yards away from this sweet cottage.
