I booked this based on it's fabulous reviews and was not disappointed.
Michelle welcomed us warmly and even gave up her parking space, as we arrived mid-evening on a Friday, by which time the town was very busy.
The cottage was simply wonderful - compact but extremely cosy, beautifully presented, immaculately clean and tucked away from everything. We made good use of the wood burner as it was a dreary weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet. The little extra touches were unexpected but greatly appreciated and we had a very restful weekend. Thank you Michelle - see you again in the Spring!
We could not have been happier with this beautiful quaint cottage, so comfortable and everything we needed for comfort was available. The garden is so lovely to just sit in and have a cuppa or a glass of wine. So much to see in Arundel, with castles, rivers, walks and great restaurants, cafes and pubs. One hour from Gatwick airport this was the perfect place to stay to finish off our UK trip. Michelle was a very gracious host and nothing was too much trouble. Would love to come back again!
Every bit as good as the first time we stayed. Definitely the best self catering place that we have found in the area - and we have tried a lot! Beautiful cottage, every amenity, and Michelle adds so many extras - from a wide range of breakfast goodies, to those yummy Lindor chocolates - in 2 places! We will not be staying anywhere else.
Benjamin cottage is that perfect quiet oasis away from the noise and stress of daily routines; a delightful little jewel, cosy, welcoming and perfectly equipped for a comfortable and romantic stay.
What a treat, perfect spot, perfect accommodation!
The owners attention to detail, special touches made our stay such a delight, home from home - we will be returning and recommending to all our friends. The perfect hide away within the centre of town.
Thank you Michelle
I stayed here whilst working in the area. My wife also decided to join me and brought our small dog. Phil and Michelle have create a little gem which has all the amenities you could possibly want. They even paid attention to all the little add ons that you would get in a hotel such as slippers and robes. The cottage is quaint and exudes character and has been finished to a very high standard and the owners clearly like to please their guests. I am always on the look out for alternatives to hotels and this one goes straight to the top of the list......put simply?.....Fabulous
Thank you Michelle for a lovely 2 night stay at Benjamin Cottage. We were so impressed with the decor, impeccable cleanliness and facilities as well as a bursting welcome basket (I won't spoil the surprises in store). The bathroom was lovely as well - a good size and even had make up remover! It really is the little things that matter.
Thank you for welcoming us and our two little dogs and even fashioning a stair block to block the stairs safely for them. The cottage was so close to the town and we managed some dog walks and pub garden visits (we particularly liked The Red Lion) despite the dreary weather. There were plenty of facilities for cooking for yourself which we did on the first night. There was a great selection of cleaning products so there is no excuse not to leave the cottage tidy at the end of your stay. The courtyard garden was very pretty and enclosed which was helpful for the dogs.
The only thing we found tricky was parking but after a few drives around the block, we managed to park just outside of Arun House - this was no fault of the owners.
We would definitely recommend Benjamin House to other couples looking for a secluded spot within close proximity to the town.
