Artist's Cottage in the Heart of Arundel



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
Malt House Cottage

Malt House Cottage is a picture perfect wooden weatherboard cottage right in the heart of Arundel just a step away from all the best cafes, restaurants and antique shops that the town has to offer. The cottage has its own private parking in the drive directly in front of the cottage.

The front door opens into a hall off which is a white sitting room/dining room with white sofas, wooden floors and beautiful art on the walls. The dining room table comfortably seats 4 and French doors open out onto a little barbecue cooking area. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. There is a ground floor cloakroom.

The master bedroom has a double bed and a lovely en-suite bathroom with free standing bath. There are French doors which open out from the master bedroom onto a pretty balcony with a table and chairs to sit and enjoy the morning sun.

Bedroom two has a double bed and en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower.


Please note that payment via the Owners Direct site can be made by debit or credit card but if you would like to book direct I take bank transfers from UK bank accounts. If you would prefer to do this please give me a ring or email me with your full name and address to prepare the direct booking paperwork (this also saves you the 6% handling fee charged by Owners Direct).

Arundel is a tiny market town 49 miles from London near the sea on the South Coast of England.

Arundel Castle, which regularly hosts exciting jousting tournaments and days of historical interest for all the family, is a wonderful place to visit with tours around the castle including beautiful walled gardens. There is a museum by the main entrance to the Castle and the imposing Arundel Cathedral to visit.

Whether you enjoy a gentle stroll or are a seasoned hiker there are breath-taking walks through Arundel Park which begin at the top the hill in town and go on for miles over the South Downs.

At Swanbourne Lake, Mill Lane, you can hire rowing boats or visit the Arundel Wetland Centre which has a multitude of bird wildlife . There is also mini golf, bowling and tennis in Mill Road near the Castle main gates. If you enjoy swimming the Lido is on Queen Street or for horse riding Arundel Riding Centre is in Park Place. You can take a leisurely boat trip from the bridge in Mill Lane in Arundel Centre or just sit in one of the cafes overlooking the water and watch the world go by.

Arundel has some wonderful festivals including the vibrant Arundel Festival and Art Trail in August and the romantic Arundel by Candlelight in December.

Arundel is very small and intimate: you don’t even need to get in the car as nowhere in town is further than about 10 minutes walk! There are fantastic antique shops all over town and many restaurants, cafes and one-off boutiques.


If you are looking for a little culture Petworth Park is home to the National Trust’s finest art collection and a vast deerpark landscaped by Capability Brown. There are Roman villas at Bignor and Fishbourne or the Weald & Downland Outdoor Museum which has historic houses and buildings from the 13th Century to Victorian times for you to explore. For the more mechanically minded Amberley Working Museum is a great step back in time.

Goodwood is a huge draw to the area and their special events include Glorious Goodwood, The Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival. Fontwell Racecourse is even closer to Arundel town for regular jump race meetings.

For afternoon/evening entertainment Chichester Festival Theatre and the Minerva Theatre has a wealth of highly acclaimed plays. In Portsmouth there is a huge historic dockyard where you can go aboard old warships and ships dating back to 16th Century. From Portsmouth you can also take a hovercraft over to the Isle of Wight. For a great day out shopping and to soak up the atmosphere Brighton is a large and vibrant town.

There are many beaches in the area if you are looking for a seaside break - the closest is Clymping approximately 10 minutes away by car and there is also West Beach, Littlehampton and Middleton to be visited. Most of the beaches in this area are part sand part stony but if you prefer a sandy beach West Wittering has miles of golden sandy beaches and sand dunes.

Malthouse Cottage is in an ideal position. Restaurants, coffee shops and all the excellent boutiques, antique shops etc are all in easy walking distance. Arundel is definitely worth a visit and we will definitely back for more.

Short Break in Arundel

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean and really comfortable with everything provided. It was just a few yards from cafes, bars and restaurants and lovely walks. It was a pleasure to deal with the owner who was so helpful. I would certainly recommend this cottage to friends/relations for a short break, it was a great find!
