Holiday cottage, Arundel, West Sussex
Cosy, comfy and a perfect location for visiting Arundel - with parking!
"Tarante had everything we want from short-break self-catering accommodation; it was clean and comfy, quiet and cosy. Perhaps more importantly it was within easy walking distance of the town centre with its great bars and restaurants, and had parking. The owner was friendly and helpful (the milk was a nice touch, so we could have a much-needed cup of tea on arrival) and every detail seemed to have been thought of in the accommodation. The garden was available to us and it was nice to have an early morning coffee in the sunshine on the decking. Highly recommended."
Located along Arundel’s Causeway, Tarante is a stunning garden suite that enjoys a half acre private garden set beside the River Arun. It is just a short level walk into Arundel, or a gentle stroll along the river bank from the gate in the garden. In the other direction is a glorious walk to Warningcamp and Burpham, with a great panorama to the South Downs and across the river to Arundel Park.
French doors from both the living room and bedroom give a wonderful impression of space and bring the garden right into the apartment! A patio with garden furniture is immediately outside for your enjoyment and a barbeque is provided for those warm evenings.
This comprehensively equipped suite is ideal for two people. The bedroom contains a king sized bed which can be split to create two 2' 6" single beds if preferred , and a cot and child’s bed can also be made available on request. It comes complete with all modern facilities along with an iPod docking station, and is stylishly decorated and complimented with original artwork.
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?
