Car: not necessary
If you have never visited Arundel, you have missed one of England's best kept secrets. It is a gem of a town and nestles on the edge of the South Downs on the River Arun.
The magnificent Castle and Cathedral are both a short stroll from the property and there is a wealth of antique shops, gift and lifestyle stores in which to browse. There are stunning walks in the Park and along the South Downs. Climping Beach - a mere four miles from the house - offers swimming, windsurfing and sailing. There is also an open air swimming pool in the town, overlooked by the majestic Castle.
Goodwood and Fontwell racecourses are nearby, as well as several golf courses. Take the train to London for the day, or Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, and then return in the evening to dine at one of the town's many excellent restaurants. Ten miles away is Chichester with its excellent theatre and Brighton is only a forty minute drive.
