About the property

Cosy cottage in Arundel with open fires

This cosy cottage in Arundel is just a few minutes walk from Arundel old town. The main reception room has an open fire, sofa and armchairs and there is a dining room which seats up to 6 with a woodburner.

As shown on the photograph the stairs are open with a banister only on one side which means that this cottage is not suitable for toddlers or very young children.

Bedroom one has stripped wooden floorboards, an iron double bed and a pretty ornamental fireplace. Bedroom 2 is a good size bedroom with double bed. The bathroom is between the 2 rooms and is fresh and bright.

There is a little South facing lawned garden with tables and chairs and bbq area.

Well behaved dogs are welcome with permission but are not allowed on the furniture or upstairs. There is a fixed fee of £20 per dog for your stay.

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 www.wwt.org.uk/wetland-centres/arundel. 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 15 minutes walk! There are fantastic antique shops all over town and many restaurants, cafes and one-off boutiques.

AROUND ARUNDEL

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 sandy beaches the famous West Wittering beach is within striking distance by car.

Clean and very comfortable with everything one could ask for.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable home which was very clean, It had all the emenities one could need, also a dvd player which was not listed on the original, which was needed of an evening,The surrounding countryside was beautiful, and we visited castle and the wetlands centre, all within a reasonable distance. We were welcomed when we arrived and told the best way into town which meant we did not need the car. Thanks for everything.

Fabulous, cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four days in October and absolutely loved this delightful cottage - it is immaculate, light and warm with efficient, easy to operate central heating as well as a woodburner and open fire. We stocked up with extra logs from the local wood yard - Sue will give you directions - for very cosy nights in front of the open fire. It has a lovely, light and airy bathroom with good quality towels (hurrah!), a heated towel rail/radiator, big shower cubicle, separate bath and constant hot water. Both bedrooms are a good size and the beds are very comfortable. There's a small but exceptionally well equipped kitchen, with all the utensils you could possible need plus a washing machine and dishwasher. Fast and reliable WiFi.

Parking wasn't a problem - we always got a space in the road whatever time of the day/night we needed it; the walk into town is straight forward and takes about 10 minutes.

Both Laura, the manager who answered all my questions quickly and made the booking process very straightforward, and Sue, the owner, are friendly and helpful. Sue agreed to us arriving earlier than normal, which was great and she was there to welcome us and show us everything when we arrived. We've stayed in a lot of holiday homes and can definitely recommend this one.

Lovely arty cottage in Arundel

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in this cottage when we visited Arundel with our 6-month old baby. The house is beautifully decorated (the current pictures don't do it justice!). We were given a warm welcome from the owner and the cottage had all we needed. They even sourced a travel cot and highchair for us to use over the weekend. A real home from home. Highly recommended.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Gatwick at 50 Miles Nearest Train : Arundel at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Clymping at 5 Miles

Coast/Beach:

Within 10 minutes drive is Clymping Beach or Littlehampton which has the design award winning restaurant the East Beach Café, beach, tennis, crazy golf, mini train and funfair. The other side of the river in town is a great very casual fish and chip café called the West Beach Café with a part stone, part sandy beach.

The most well known beach in the area West Wittering which is a lovely sandy beach but gets very busy during the holidays when it’s hot.

Distances:

The charming town of Chichester with it's Festival Theatre is about 15 minutes drive, or the Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth is well worth a visit for a great day out, or try Brighton for some serious shopping!

Further Details:

In Arundel itself there is the castle which often has exciting jousting and other historical events, there are beautiful walled gardens and you can take a tour through the castle (open to the public from 28th March). Also in town there is a museum, the Cathedral and amazing walks through Arundel Park which start right at the top the hill from the cottage. If you walk over the hill in the Arundel Park you will come to Swanbourne Lake where you can hire a boat for a row around, have an ice cream etc. Just further on is a bird wildlife centre. Also right in the centre of town is mini golf (open in summer only), a pretty playground, public tennis courts and a large lido all a short walk away.

If you want a little culture Petworth Park is magnificent inside and outside you can walk through the parklands with thousands of deer and lovely views. There are Roman villas at Bignor and Fishbourne or the Weald & Downland Outdoor Museum which has historic houses and buildings from 13th Century to Victorian times for you to explore and lots of ‘making things’ activities for kids during the holidays. For the more mechanically minded Amberley Working Museum is a great step back through time and for the adventurous this rock climbing and activity centre is absolutely brilliant
