We have spent a lovely relaxing weekend at Benjamin Cottage. Set within its own private garden this cottage is the perfect retreat. Quality accommodation , you will not be disappointed.. thoughtful details, such as breakfast and tea and coffee , all you need for your weekend.
Everything is within walking distance, so once you have parked the car, that's where it stays.
There are plenty of restaurants and pubs nearby, and recommendations can be found in the guide left by the owners Michelle and Phil.
What a beautiful little cottage! It may be small but it is perfectly formed! The cottage had gorgeous decor, a lovely modern good size bathroom, a small kitchen area with everything you would need (except microwave) which Michelle had already stocked with bread, milk, orange juice, bacon, jam etc. basically all the essentials you could need with a few lovely extras including hot chocolate, marshmallows and shortbread biscuits! The location is absolutely brilliant, we didn't use the car at all during our 3 day stay. It was walking distance to the cathedral, castle and wetlands area and in the middle of all shops, cafes and restaurants/pubs. (I definitely recommend the India Gate curry house!) Michelle greeted us on arrival and even allowed us to check in early which was great plus she even arranged for her husband to go and buy us some sterilisation liquid for our babies bottles which got us out of a fix! We had a lovely time and would definitely stay there again. The only (tiny) downside was the staircase to the bed was quite narrow and difficult to carry a baby up/down so maybe not ideal for a stay with a small baby but otherwise i can't fault Benjamin Cottage and it's wonderful hosts.
A little treasure of a stay. Very thoughtful provisions on arrival and a wood burner that kept us cosy and relaxed all weekend. Very clean, quiet and secluded yet in the heart of Arundel. Great hikes on the doorstep. Highly recommended romantic place for 2
My wife and I have an elderly Godmother living in Rustington and we travel to the area 4 or 5 times each year. We have tried 5 or 6 places and the only 2 which we would look forward to going to, and which are absolutely first class are Benjamin Cottage in Arundel for self catering and Nurses Cottage in Warningcamp for B&B. They both give first class service, great value for money and marvellous attention to detail. Don't choose anywhere but one of these two places - they are head and shoulders above most of the others.
My wife and I spent a few days at Benjamin cottage over the New Year weekend 2016. The small and very cosy self contained accommodation nestled behind a private garden at the back of the owner home, is beautifully and thoughtfully finished to a high standard. The mezzanine bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed above a small but very usable kitchen space, behind which is a surprisingly big bathroom. The main feature for us though on the cold evenings was the relaxing living space, the centre piece of which is the wonderful log stove providing enough heat to warm the whole cottage. Michelle the owner, clearly knows a thing or two about interior design, definitely thumbs up to her. We'll definitely be back
