There is so much to explore in and around Arundel. This corner of West Sussex has access to the South Downs, the coast, vineyards, and all the charms and attractions of Arundel itself. And if you really want to do the area justice, why not stay for a weekend at one of these three delightful venues.
The Pig in the South Downs
About four miles from Arundel, and as the name suggests, right in the heart of the South Downs, is the pretty hamlet of Madehurst and this fabulous hotel. There are rooms in the main house (complete with traditional greenhouse restaurant) and more in the stable yard building and converted wagons. They are all beautifully decorated and very special. In fact, if you’re looking for a romantic retreat, try their secluded but luxurious wagons hidden in the walled garden. The Pig does get booked early and has a minimum two-night stay requirement. In July, the average cost of a room is £350 / night and for a wagon £390 / night.
The Town House
In the very centre of Arundel, with views of the castle, you’ll find The Town House. This is a great spot to unwind after a day of exploring and they do cocktails and mezze boards. Their deluxe doubles are approximately £150 / night and their standard doubles are approximately £120 / night.
As the name suggests, “The Bakery” used to be the local bakery for the town and is a grade II listed building at the top of the High Street in Arundel. It’s small with just two rooms upstairs both with king-size beds and two full bathrooms and an additional sofa bed on the ground floor. The Bakery is full of character and charm and a minimum two-night stay will set you back just over £450.
