Holiday cottage, Arundel, West Sussex
Calceto is a beautifully presented courtyard suite in Arundel that is very comfortably furnished for two adults and an infant or small child and enjoys a spacious and secluded private garden that is right beside the River Arun. This famous town is just a short stroll from Calceto either along the Causeway or taking the path along the river bank from behind the garden offering up wonderful views of the castle.
The suite is bright and sunny, benefitting from facing south west and overlooking a pretty walled garden. Calceto will sleep two. The king-size bed can be converted to twin beds thereby making it very adaptable accommodation, and it also benefits from an ensuite shower room. Please let us know when you book whether you would like the beds linked or not. A cot and child’s bed can also be provided on request. It is fully equipped with TV, DVD with freeview and an iPod docking station. It is also very stylishly furnished and complimented with original artwork.
This is a lovely suite, perfect for Arundel, the Sussex coast and the South Downs above the town.
Arundel is a historic market town dominated by the symbolic castle and the rising spire of the cathedral. It offers a plethora of craft and antique shops, as well as restaurants and tearooms. It’s a great place to wander and just enjoy its hospitality.
Arundel Castle is the seat of the Dukes of Norfolk, and is set in 40 acres of sweeping grounds and gardens. The castle has been seasonally open to visitors for nearly 200 years. It is one of the great treasure houses of England, and is home to priceless works of art in stunning rooms. Climbing the 131 steps to the Keep (which dates from the 11th century), to take in the views over Arundel and The South Downs is definitely worth the effort.
Beyond the castle grounds Arundel Park extends north towards the Downs offering many fine walks. A two mile walk to the top affords fantastic downland views and south to the coast.
The River Arun winds its way around the town and is a magnet for wildlife. With more than 60 acres of ponds, lakes and reed beds, Arundel Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust attracts some of the worlds most spectacular ducks, geese and swans. The best way to enjoy the river is on a river cruise stopping off at the Black Rabbit pub or proceeding further north where the river hugs the scarp wooded slope at the foot of the Downs before reaching Amberley.
Further afield Arundel is well placed for the coast. Climping Beach and Littlehampton’s West Beach are only a short drive away. This is a beautiful unspoilt length of beach of Special Scientific Interest. At the eastern end beside the mouth of the River Arun, is the West Beach Café, built by local craftsmen using materials sourced locally. It is worth a visit, the fish and chips come highly recommended!
Goodwood and Fontwell racecourses are nearby, along with the cathedral city of Chichester with its excellent Festival Theatre noted for not only the quality of productions but also the fact many world premieres are featured as well.
If you fancy a day in the city, Arundel mainline station is on a direct route to London, so why not mix the cosmopolitan capital with this beautiful part of Sussex?
