The River House is a 1901 Victorian terraced cottage backing onto horse fields and the River Arun.
I have a twin room with private bathroom on the first floor exclusively for guests.
A homely place to stay, just a 5-minute walk into the historic cathedral town of Arundel with it's castle and many attractions, cafes, pubs, restaurants and antique shops. Ideal for couples and solo adventurers visiting Sussex, the South Downs Way and famous Goodwood events during the summer months.

The space

Arundel by Candlelight, one of the major Christmas events in the south of England, is on Saturday 2 December.

The historic town of Arundel in West Sussex, with its famous castle and cathedral, provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy this Christmas event. Real Christmas trees decorated with simple white lights adorn all the shops, restaurants and pubs, plus many private houses, creating an elegant and sophisticated scene. While in the town square a traditional tall Christmas tree donated by the Duke of Norfolk’s estate will shine brightly against the early evening sky.

Guest access

Please feel free to come and go as you please and treat the River House as you would your own home.
On the first floor, a twin room with wardrobe, dressing table, tea making facilities, HD Freeview TV and fridge.
Next to your own private Victorian bathroom with double ended bath with telephone shower and views across the horse fields. Towels are provided.
The kitchen is available for your use, tea and coffee are provided.
The 180ft garden is well stocked with plenty of seating areas for you to relax on a sunny afternoon. BBQ available.
Parking is free street parking, there is always plenty of space either outside or close to the River House. (Parking in Arundel town is limited to 2-hours or town car parks.)

Jo's house is very close to all the bars and restaurants in Arundel. It's only 5 minutes walk to the High Street, The room was big and comfortable, and we both had great nights sleep. Highly recommended!

We only stayed one night with Joanna and Clover but we were very happy with our stay. Communication beforehand was very smooth, arrival very neat and her place is a convenient walking distance to the Castle and it is very clean, beautifully decorated and cosy. The bathroom is ever so pretty. Joanna and Clover were both very welcoming, and we wholeheartedly recommend her place.

I stayed in Joanna's home for two nights. Joanna is a warm and friendly person and was very welcoming. Her place is very thoughtfully decorated and looks lovely. Its a great place to stay if you want a quiet break in artistic Arundel.

Our stay with Jo was perfect! The house is beautiful and was in a really good location for us, easy walk into Arundel and also only a 15 minute drive to Slindon where we were attending a course. The room and bathroom were very nicely decorated and impeccably clean and we had a whole floor to ourselves! Amazing was also being able to use the garden and hanging out with her adorable puppy Clover. Jo was very accommodating of us coming back from the course at all hours of the night and the communication was fantastic throughout. We could not have asked for a better stay.

I have lived in Arundel for over 50-years, and also work in Arundel. I enjoy photography and meeting people.
I ran The River House as a Holiday Home for 6-years before moving to live back home, and now have a twin room available for rental on special occasions such as Goodwood.
