Holiday cottage, Arundel, West Sussex
Lovely property, excellent location
"Swan Cottage was the best self-catering property I have experienced. It was beautifully furnished and decorated and ideally situated overlooking the River Arun, just a short walk from the centre of Arundel. Two car spaces meant we didn't have to try to park in the narrow streets of the town. The owner welcomed us warmly and explained everything we needed to know. She had also provided basic essentials eg bread, milk, butter, etc (much appreciated after our long journey). "

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.
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 well worth a visit, the fish and chips come highly recommended!
Goodwood and Fontwell racecourses are nearby providing a host of events throughout the year and, for theatre goers, there is the option of travelling a short distance to Chichester to see the excellent productions at the Festival Theatre.
