Holiday cottage, Arundel, West Sussex
Comfort,we found the sofas uncomfortable for relaxing in the evenings.
"We found the cottage charming ,well fitted out with everything you could possible need. The sofas look great ,but to chill out in the evening VERY uncomfortable. Also we found the cottage very clean and well presented."
Multi-generation family holiday
"Daisy cottage was beautiful, very well decorated and equipped. We had a lovely holiday. However, we found its location, high up the hill from the centre of Arundel, a problem for Granny, who has mobility problems. We got around this and all had a good time, but I feel it worth mentioning to potential guests in the future. We also thought the space around the dining table was not great for 5, but again we managed to squeeze in. Other than that it was a lovely place and Arundel was very pretty. My daughter particularly loved doing crafts on the terrace in the sunshine and seeing the cathedral from her bedroom - she said goodnight to it each evening."
Great place to stay in Arundel
"The Daisy Cottage was very spacious and comfortable for a family of four. Location is perfect for exploring Arundel on foot. There is so much to see in the area. Cottage was very clean and updated. Bathroom was large and well-appointed. Washing machine was inoperative upon arrival. It would have been nice to know this ahead of time. Front door lock mechanism was extremely difficult to close and needs to be adjusted, especially if an older guest were to stay there. Parking can be a challenge--we only parked on our street one night--but found parking one street over or across from cathedral every day."
Excellent little cottage
"Well thought out , with stylish furniture & accesories.in a good location, so you could leave car parked at cottage."
"Lovely cottage situated in the heart of Arundel. The cottage is beautifully presented with all mod cons and more. A definite property to go back to"
"Although smaller than we expected we found Daisy Cottage very comfortable. The location was lovely and we had some interesting walks (be ready for the hills)! The cottage itself had plenty of crockery cutlery etc as we like our "Home cooking" The housekeeper was very accomodating and nothing was too much trouble for him. The only downside was the washer/tumble which wasnt working."
"We had a wonderful break in Arundel it is great place to stay with lots of attractions in easy distance. There were lots of good eating pubs and cafes that allowed you to take your dog. The cottage was very nice and clean with all you could need. We would like to return to Arundel next year "
"Lovely well furnished and equipped cottage on a lovely quiet street. It had everything we needed and was very comfy. "
"A nice clean and comfortable cottage. Not suitable children or elderly. No garden or parking. We were aware of the above draw backs before booking. Because of the negatives we do not think it is good value for money. Compared to other cottages we have rented it was poor value. "
Beautiful cottage in a great location
"The cottage was lovely and the customer service was great. The cottage was fully equipped, and a welcoming home from home. The contemporary furniture and fittings add a unique style and comfort to the property. The front loft bedroom window and the back door are in need of repair or replacement, as let in wind and rain, which I can see could be a problem in the autumn and winter months. Had a great week in and around Arundel and would book the cottage again without hesitation."
Daisy Cottage is one of a line of individual terraced cottages once owned by the Duke of Norfolk Estate that were used to house workers during the construction of Arundel Cathedral. From the front they all appear the same, but internally each one is different. This three bedroom cottage sleeps five over three floors. The double bedroom on the top floor has the most outstanding views over Arundel and to the English Channel beyond. The cottage is wonderfully central yet in a very quiet part of this historic town, so the cathedral and castle are a short stroll away.
At the front of the cottage is a bright and airy living room with contemporary furnishings, a 'smart' TV and a wood burning stove for the cooler evenings. There is also full gas central heating, so the cottage will be as comfortable for a winter break as a holiday in mid summer. The kitchen houses the dining table, and is comprehensively equipped with a range cooker, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher.
On the first floor the principal bedroom has a double bed, and contemporary decor in similar shades to the sitting room below. This floor also has the generously sized bathroom, which has a free standing bath, a separate corner shower cubicle, a basin and WC. A tall heated towel rail will ensure warm towels within easy reach of the shower.
At the end of the first floor landing a door leads to another staircase taking you to the top floor of the cottage. At the front of the cottage is a second double bedroom with partially sloping ceilings, giving it great character. The view from the window of this bedroom looks over the roof tops of the houses opposite to the River Arun beyond as it wends its way to the sea at Littlehampton. Also on the top floor is a single bedroom at the back of the cottage. From this side there is a superb view of the Cathedral, which stands a short distance from Daisy Cottage. Also in this floor is a cloakroom with WC and basin.
Outside at the front of the cottage there is a small terrace area, which makes a great sun trap and a lovely spot to enjoy a morning coffee or afternoon tea. To the rear there is a lawn area which although not part of the cottage it is an area for guests to enjoy in peace and quiet. Unallocated on street parking is provided to the front of the cottage and nearby.

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 Wetland 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.
Looking 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 and 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?
