ROSE COTTAGE ARUNDEL

"We enjoyed our stay in the cottage. Its in a lovely location to explore Arundel and the surrounding area. Would recommend a trip to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard which includes the Mary Rose exhibition which was excellent. What we would say is that parking could be a problem at busy times of the year as it hasn't got its own parking space. Parking is in the road adjacent to the cottage. Also the plug in the bathroom basin doesn't keep water in the sink so that is something that should be fixed. Having said that we would definitely stay here again. "

An Arundle Gem

"Stayed in Arundle simply because I used to drive past it on business years ago and thought it looked nice - what an understatement. Absolutely fabulous historic town (you MUST take the historic walking tour) and Rose Cottage is the perfect base. Stunningly restored and equipped cottage which is totally perfect for a couple to stay in the heart of town. Hard to know what to stay other than we always stay self catering and have done so all over the UK and abroad and Rose Cottage is up there with our favorites. We will be booking again at some point in the future."

Quite positive

"Lovely town, Arundel. Cottage was quite nice, it is small, as advertised. It would get an Excellent if the mattress had been better. We picked up extra blankets from the "Annex" and lay them on the mattress to disguise the springs. Yes I did hit my head on the stairs, going up not down. Maybe they need a sign each way. Value for money would have been very good if we didn't have to deal with Goodwood Pricing, which is a problem throughout the area. FWIW we have decided that Goodwood Revival has become a bit of a circus and the motor racing isn't worth the cost and crowds any more. "

Lovely property and location

"Absolutely charming and well equipped property. Brilliant location in Arundel. Very good bathroom and shower facilities with great water pressure. Very glad that the property is dog friendly. Feedback for improvements: The cost to change the booking was, in my experience, quite high. Also it would have been nice to have at least one spare towel provided. Parking can be a problem, which could have been highlighted better in the description."

Quaint country cottage

"i stayed at Rose Cottage for a little over a week while I had some building work done on my house. It is quaint and nicely restored in keeping with the town. I had a couple of issues early on but these were corrected immediately by Christopher so no problem there. As some previous reviewers have mentioned, the staircase is tricky, especially if you are taller. The kitchen is well stocked and the log burner is a delight. For Arundel the huge bonus was being able to park outside and it's only a short walk into town for shopping, sightseeing or meals out."

Great weekend

"We found Rose Cottage to be a cozy, comfortable wee cottage in the heart of Arundel. We stayed for a long weekend in November. It was the perfect size for my husband and I and our small dog. The stairs are not the easiest if you have any mobility/balance issues. Local events notated on the calendar was a nice touch and the Cottage itself is well presented and kitchen well equipped. "

A perfect location to stay in Arundel

"Lovely cottage but the heating did not work on our second day so we did not have any warm water or heating. We phoned the caretaker and he came and topped op the Central heating so that we could have a shower. The heating could not be repaired during our stay and the caretaker offered us another cottage 50 yards away from Rose cottage, and we moved into Daisy cottage in the afternoon. There was also a problem with the heating at Daisy cottage, the thermostat didn?t work and luckily there was an override switch that we used. A few days later there was a new thermostat installed and the problem was resolved. A tip for the owners, do more maintenance to ensure that the heating is working and do something about the draft from the back door. We enjoyed our stay in Arundel and Daisy cottage, the cottage was fully equipped, had everything we needed and was very comfortable, we had a great time in and around Arundel. Overall a lovely property and destination, a Perfect base for exploring Sussex and the south coast. "

Great cottage in great location

"Nice cottage located on the edge of Arundel and within walking distance of both the town and superb countryside walks. We stayed for 3 nights in early October and would thoroughly recommend both cottage and location. Very relaxing!"

Great location, clean, well stocked and cosy for 2, possibly 3 people.

"We had a wonderful stay at Rose Cottage. Christopher was very prompt to respond with a few questions and issues we were having which were resolved. The cottage was warm and cosy, quite small but fine for 2 people. The 2nd bedroom is not attached to the property but only on the other side of the courtyard. Its a very quiet location but still only 5-10min walk to the centre of Arundel. The cottage was clean, had a well-stocked kitchen, good internet and netflix for rainy nights. The main bedroom was comfortable and with a nice sized fairly modern bathroom. The stairs are quite steep and narrow so you need to concentrate! If you have a car there is free on street parking nearby if not out the front.We would stay again and enjoyed our time very much."

Lovely Cottage

"A very cosy cottage with all amenities on hand. Excellent shower room and comfortable bedroom. The location is perfect for Arundel and you can walk to all restaurants and Pubs. Very close to the castle and gardens. An excellent break for the two of us and our two small dogs."

Small but comfortable.

"We have to adapt to the size, but a small cottage isn't a problem. Parking has always been available reasonably close by. The facilities and equipment are good quality and we have always had a comfortable stay."

Other Reviews

“Rose Cottage was to us like a home away from home, conveniently located close to the Castle, Cathedral and many other places of historic interest. The cottage was very comfortable with all the necessities. Wifi was great which is particularly important when you're a long way from home. Arundel Station is about a 2025 minute walk and we did this regularly, weather permitting, but if we couldn't the Castle taxi service was very reliable. We love our cricket and were delighted that the Arundel Castle Cricket ground was nearby and we could walk to it easily to watch. Lots of great eating place and quaint little shops to shop and browse, Larkins and the Co-Op are within walking distance to pick up all your basics and more! All in all a great little cottage and a great holiday!”

"Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location at the top of a hill with views out to the countryside and just a short walk to the high street. Nice touches such as milk in the fridge on arrival and tea and coffee provided. The little annex at the end of the courtyard garden was a lovely bonus and would have been useful if a friend wanted to stay. All in all, loved this property."
L. Miller
We had a wonderful time. Cottage is lovely, very warm and cosy and equipped with everything we needed. Good location with pubs nearby serving great food. We enjoyed walking around the town and exploring all the unusual shops. A weekend was not long enough to see everything Arundel has to offer so we will definitely return in the future.
L. Woodward
"I am so pleased I discovered Rose Cottage! Overall, I thought this was an absolutely delightful accommodation and fully intend to return there on my next trip to the U.K.! I loved the cottage, the renovations and the furnishings and the photos are very accurate. It is extremely comfortable and the back patio is an extra plus. Mount Pleasant is a surprisingly peaceful street and I had no problems finding parking -- generally right outside the door. The cottage is ideally located to everything Arundel has to offer and certainly there is no shortage of good restaurants and pubs to walk to. The booking experience was excellent and upon my arrival Gemma answered a few queries I had immediately. I am only sorry that I was visiting for just one week!"
R. Steere
"Rose Cottage is well placed - easy walking distance to town and excellent for walks in and around Arundel Park. Peaceful setting. Cottage was very quiet when we were there in May. Easy to drive to other places of interest - lots of gardens, stately homes, Roman remains very close by."
Mrs J Stokes
" Gorgeous place to stay and well located to local attractions. Definitely a cosy cottage for 2 with modern appliances and a lovely welcome package. Will recommend to all our friends and will come to stay again!"
S.Thompson
" A wonderful and beautiful well equipped cottage. Very close to Arundel town centre made it very easy to get out and look around the local shops. Although there is no official parking we found the on street parking was fine and we managed to get a space right outside the cottage everyday. The caretaker is exceptional and we would happily return again soon."
P.Simkins
"Rose Cottage was absolutely perfect for a stay in Arudnel."
S.Robotham
" An absolutely gorgeous cottage only 5 mins walk from the picturesque village of Arundel. The cottage is incredibly homely, despite loving the daily visits to local areas, we both really looked forward to getting back to the cosy cottage every night! Beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, really comfortable and a lovely welcome pack provided by the owner - it made for a very special birthday weekend, thank you all! "
N.Houghton
" A great time was had in a beautiful cottage."
R.Gee
'Quite possibly the cosiest cottage you could hope for, especially at Christmas time. We loved staying at Rose Cottage and felt so completely at home we stayed an extra night. It is in a lovely quiet location, near the Cathedral but also only a short walk into town. And the town itself is a delight. Very easy to batten down the hatches and hibernate - or go for long walks along the river or in Arundel Park. It is beautifully appointed and very welcoming. It felt completely like home
Kelly Fowler
" Rose cottage was all I hoped for. Like a dolls house, cute and cosy but by no means cramped. The decor was very tastefull and furniture very comfortable. Its position in Arundel was perfect, quiet road, 2 mins from good pub grub and just a few mins walk to the town. The wine that was left by the owner was much appreciated."
Mr James McNeely
" Perfect little cottage, very central so handy for castle. Welcoming bottles of wine and biscuits a very nice touch. Recommended."
Mr Graham Evans

A Romantic holiday cottage retreat offering the perfect break in Arundel!

This has to be in one of the prettiest settings within Arundel. Set at the top of the town this charming little cottage has been completely refurbished in 2011 to offer really comfortable accommodation for two people looking for a relaxing and romantic break away. To the front it sits above a sloping grass bank with the road below. Stand outside and there are views to the coast.

The cottages here are closely linked with the development of the cathedral and the castle both of which are just moments away. Rose Cottage is beautifully presented retaining many of its original features. The living room is a clever modern space focused around its wood burning stove. The cottage also has the benefit of a second living room or day room which is external, something quite unusual but a feature of a number of the cottages in this part of the town. This room is provided with a fold out chair bed suitable for one person to use. Attached to it is a small cloakroom.

The cottage is perfect for a couple with a double bed upstairs along with a beautifully refurbished shower room. Cottages of this period are a little tight in places, so just be aware that it is not best suited to anyone unduly tall or uncomfortable with stairs.

Arundel and beyond

Arundel is a market town that is 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 great 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.

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 trip to 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?
