Holiday cottage, Arundel, West Sussex
Girls Weekend Escape
"A stunning characterful little cottage in the heart of Arundel, ideally located next to a great pub and opposite the Coop, perfect for our late night chocolate cravings and stocking up on more liquid refreshments. Spent many hours snuggling in front of the cosy fire, cooking in the well equipped kitchen and watching movies. Cloud nine comfy beds greeted us when we eventually needed our beauty sleep. Would highly recommend a staying here; we certainly can't wait for a return visit."
a very relaxing short stay
"The cottage was delightful . If you are over 6 foot the low ceiling can prove a challenge but once mastered it's worth it. We loved the log fire. It really felt like home, a larger fridge would have been great but allowing for the space available it was well equipped. A lovely Christmas family break."
The most welcoming, homely cottage stay ever!
"Myself and 5 friends came to stay with the intention of cosy evenings by the fire and days exploring arundel. That's exactly what we got!! The cottage was so welcoming with its real countryside character- wooden beams and low doorways. Everything was easy to find/work and it was extremely clean! We were so pleased with our stay we have already looked at dates to book again!!! "
Very Comfortable well fitted Cottage in Arundel
"Good cottage and fittings, plenty of plates dishes etc. Nice garden and seating for summer days. We will definitely rebook for when we go back to the uk. Few minor complaints: Was not available until 16.00 on the day of arrival as was still being changed over. Chimney needs a sweep as although it was Summer it still smelt of the open fire. The fridge needs to be larger to accommodate the guests of a 3 bed house. OVERALL STILL HIGHLY RECOMENDED "
This wonderful four hundred year old cottage dating from 1612 is packed with character. Originally constructed as two cottages for brewery workers producing ale for the local and traditional ale houses of the time such as Abercrombie, it now offers very comfortable cottage accommodation for six guests. Just metres from the river and the entrance to Arundel Castle it enjoys a great central setting in this popular town. It is also a short walk from the Arundel Lido, which offers heated outdoor swimming pools for the summer months.
Although the ancient ale houses have long gone, fittingly for the name the cottage is next door to one of the many fine pubs found in Arundel. If the prospect of local ale and home cooked food on the doorstep is high on your list then staying at Brewery Cottage means you barely have to step outside!
As you enter the cottage from the street you will be immediately taken by the traditional living room with its posts and beams and feature inglenook fireplace. As Arundel is such a popular holiday destination all year round having an inglenook over winter just adds to the appeal.
The cottage is set for couples since the three bedrooms are all fitted with double beds. Two of the bedrooms are on the first floor along with the family bathroom while bedroom three is located downstairs off the kitchen. The bathroom has both a bath and separate shower cubicle, as well as a basin and WC. Adjacent to the bathroom is an upstairs cloakroom also with WC and basin.
Outside there is a private rear courtyard garden that makes a great suntrap throughout the day.
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.
During the summer the Arundel Festival is held over a ten day period and features an eclectic mix of music, drama and arts. Many homes open their doors and gardens over this period to provide a wonderful backdrop to the variety of art on show. We feature the festival under “What’s on” on the homepage of our website.
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 Wetland Trust attracts some of the world's 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.
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.
