A short stay in Arundel
"I was looking for a flat or apartment to rent for two weeks end of June as this would offer more comfort than a hotel, unfortunately, left booking to a few days before travel so went on line to see what would be available. I needed to find accommodation near to Arundel, preferably within walking distance so when I found a site operated by Amberly house holidays and a contact number, I called them and spoke to a very nice man, I explained what I was looking for and why and he was very helpful, keeping me in the loop to advise me, he finally found the cottage and emailed all the details by return. We turned up at the cottage (very easy to find with his directions), large cottage with plenty of room for two, new kitchen complete with all equipment, leading outside to a long garden with table and chairs. Upstairs were a large double room and a smaller single room and bathroom with separate toilet. Upstairs to converted attic was another large double room. All bedding and towels provided plus all cleaning materials, soap and toilet paper, iron, ironing board and hair dryer. Everything was very clean and tidy. The only downside is parking, we normally arrived back around 6pm each day and we had to find somewhere to find parking, which could be annoying, sadly, this is a general problem in Arundel. Overall, a great stay for two weeks."
"We were very pleasantly surprised. Cleanliness was exemplary, house fitted out with good quality new fittings and appliances, kitchen has the latest convection hob as well as everything else you might need and the house has loads of space. Warm comfortable, clear instructions in house manual. Absolutely no complaints."
Feedback on Property
"Well presented and clean property, with all the basics needed for a stay. Good for a family of 4. Would stay there again without question. The letting agent were very good at supporting our last minute changes and requests."
A short stay in Arundel
"A lovely, clean and well equipped cottage in a good location. It was within easy walking distance of Arundel town centre and the local shops and attractions. For two days I did not have access to a car and found it easy to catch the local bus to Chichester and Littlehampton from the town centre. On return we found bus stops nearer to the cottage but unfortunately that information was missing in the information folder in the cottage. The reason for our visit to Arundel was to attend the Goodwood Revival and found Loquat Cottage to be in an ideal location for access to the circuit. Hopefully we will be able to return another year."
"The house was a little walk from town - but a nice walk along the river. The distance meant that it was nice and quiet. Beautifully equipped and very clean the whole family thought the house was lovely. It was nice to find tea, coffee, sugar, milk and bottled water plus plenty of kitchen towel and rubbish bags - very helpful! I would happily recommend this property. (only observations - not keen on air fresheners/pot pourri and I think some of the cushions were feather - not good for allergy sufferers)"
Comfortable and well-kept holiday cottage
"We really enjoyed our stay at Loquat Cottage ??the house is both comfortable and well-kept. Bathroom and kitchen offer modern equipment, and there's enough room for a family with three kids."
It's only a leisurely ten minute stroll to the centre of historic Arundel from Loquat Cottage. This is a traditional Victorian mid terrace cottage that has been tastefully updated without losing its charm. The garden to the rear is nicely secluded with mature shrubs and a pretty outdoor eating area at the far end offering a tranquil area to sit.
The cottage is perfect for two couples or a family of five with the accommodation set over three floors. The principal bedroom is at the top of the cottage and has a great outlook to Arundel town, and the Castle and Cathedral. On the first floor there is the second double bedroom to the front and the single bedroom. In addition there is a bathroom with a shower bath and separate toilet on this floor. The living room is at the front of the cottage with the dining room behind and a well fitted kitchen at the back. A stable back door then opens to the garden.
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 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.
Arundel Park extends north from the Castle towards the Downs offering many fine walks. You can follow the old 'gallops' to the top of the hill at Whiteways and admire the views south on your return.
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. From the cottage it's an easy drive south.
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.
