Challenge Cottage is an appealing period holiday cottage close to Arundel Castle and the centre of town which sleeps 2-4 guests.  The cottage is bursting with all the charm of a genuine 18th century cottage but has been carefully refurbished to be both pretty and comfortable.

 

Guests will enjoy the attractive living room with electric wood burner (no flames) and comfy seating for 4. There is a smart TV and wifi.  The living room leads onto a country kitchen with oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer.  There is a small table in the kitchen which seats up to 4 guests.  To the rear of the cottage the charming courtyard garden with outside seating area enables guests to enjoy the sunshine on a warm day.

 

On the first floor is a light and airy double bedroom and bathroom.  The second floor has a double bedroom with views towards Arundel Castle.  Linen and towels are included and beds are made up for your visit.

 

Please be aware that Arundel cottages are notorious for quite steep stairs and this cottage is no exception…..and it also has slightly restricted head room right at the top of the stairs.  Therefore this cottage is not suitable for those with any sort of mobility issues and children under 12 are not allowed.  No pets allowed.

 

There is no private parking at the cottage but there are 1 hour parking spots directly opposite the cottage.  For longer term parking there is a car park at the lido less than a minute’s walk from the house tucked away behind the houses opposite or if you prefer to park for free this can be done by parking on Mill Road beyond the castle.

 

There is so much to do in Arundel town itself that you will find that you don’t need a car unless you want to sightsee further afield.  There is the majestic Arundel Castle to be explored as well as Arundel Cathedral, the museum, Arundel Lido, mini golf, tennis, bowls and river trips all within a 5 minute walk of Challenge Cottage.  For those who enjoy shopping there are wonderful antique shops all over town and gift shops in both the High Street and Tarrant Street.  There are an abundance of cafes and restaurants all within a few minutes’ walk and a fabulous deli and butcher just around the corner as well as a general provisions’ store a few doors down from the cottage.

 

If you walk past the Castle down a leafy promenade, you will reach Swanbourne Lake where you can hire a rowing boat, feed the ducks and swans or stroll all around the lake.  Wildlife enthusiasts will also enjoy The Wetlands Centre a little further on to see a multitude of bird wildlife in their natural habitat or you can walk up through Arundel Park to enjoy the magnificent countryside and views over the South Downs.

 

A little further afield Clymping beach is a 15 minute drive from Arundel and there are Roman ruins, National Trust gardens and local places of interest in abundance within easy striking distance.  Brighton is approximately 45 minutes away as is Portsmouth should you be interested in the famous historic dockyards or enjoy outlet shopping.

 

For those who love outdoor life the walks over the South Downs are quite breath-taking but for those who prefer more sedentary entertainment Chichester Festival Theatre is one of the UK’s flagship theatres, renowned for the exceptionally high standard of its productions and there are a multitude of glorious National Trust houses in the area.

Wonderful home in the British countryside. Will book again, thank you!!
Artie - September 2023
The cottage was perfect! Great location and Laura was a wonderful host! Would recommend to anyone!!
Rebecca - December 2023
Thoroughly recommended. A comfortable and well equipped cottage very conveniently located within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants etc in Arundel.
Neil - September 2023
Lovely bright little cottage. Great central location yet very quiet. A lovely little cottage, nice and bright and plenty big enough for the pair of us.
David - June 23
Cottage is conveniently located to the centre of Arundel, with good access to amenities (co-op / pubs / takeaways etc) We arrived back after 5pm each evening so easily found free on street parking directly opposite the property. Cottage is cosy and homely inside and fully equipped with everything you'd need for a short stay away. Beds were very comfortable with good quality sheets and pillows. Overall a great property in a good location for exploring the area or visiting events at Goodwood. Would definitely return.
Aland - September 2022
We had a lovely sunny week in Arundel in this cosy quaint cottage which had everything we needed. Daily swims in the heated lido added to our enjoyment. We did lots of gentle countryside walks. We drove and didn't find it difficult to find street parking. There are small local shops and the train station is nearby, so a car is not essential.
Susan - May 2022
We had a lovely stay at Challenge Cottage, it's ideally located for parking and to enjoy a walk through Arundel.
Audrey - March 2022

Pete - December – 2021
Great cottage with a great location. I expected some noise from the road but it was quieter than expected and did not bother us and i slept very well.
Sarah - October 2021
The place was warm clean, warm, homey, and super comfortable.The lovely big kitchen has been equipped with all the utensils you could to make a home-made dishes. The location is amazing in the center of Arundel. It's only 1 minute next to the Co-op shop, 3 minutes to the post office, 3 minutes to Arundel Castle. Warmly suggested. Laura was really nice, easy and efficient to communicate with. I had a great time, thanks so much again Laura

The cottage definitely lived up to its previous excellent reviews. A cute, quaint, beautifully presented cottage which was perfect for our stay. Kitchen was very well equipped, with lots of handy unexpected extras (eg oils, spices). Thoroughly enjoyable stay.
Katie - 2019
Outstanding cottage and host, thoroughly reccomeded
Matt - February 2019
The cottage is small but very quaint. It is very close to the centre of Arundel and walking distance from the station so you don't need a car. Would recommend it.
Judith - January 2019
The cottage is small but extremely well thought out and very comfortable. It's ideally situated and Arundel has plenty to offer to keep you busy without even getting in the car. Laura is very reactive and clearly wants to offer the best - which she does!
