“Beautiful cosy cottage ”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

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

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Everything about Benjamin Cottage is just about perfect (although the paddle stairs to the mezzanine bedroom take a little getting used to!)
Michele's attention to detail is incredible - the cottage is beautifully decorated / furnished and unbelievably, and thoughtfully, well stocked, right down to eye make up removed and cotton wool pads in the showers room. It is also very private and quiet.
Southern trains allowing it makes for a very quick getaway from London and the cottage is easy walking distance from the station. Driving wise perhaps we got lucky but we managed to get a (free) parking space either right outside or just around the corner for the whole of our long weekend stay.

“Gorgeous cottage!”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Where to start?! Benjamin cottage is a hidden gem! Beautifully tucked away behind an old gate and through the flowering garden is the perfectly bijou cottage. The decor and styling is stunning, and on top of it you're left a basket of edible goodies. I didn't want to leave!

“Brilliant Benjamin”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Myself and my father stayed here whilst attending an event at nearby Goodwood.

We were delighted on arrival to find such a wonderful Cottage. Hidden behind large gates it was like entering your very own secret garden at the end of which standing proud was Benjamin (Cottage).

Nestled amongst plenty of plant life the cottage is an oasis within an oasis. With Arundel's finest restaurants only a two minute walk up the road we couldn't have asked for a better location for our trip.

We were greeted by a beautiful basket of breakfast treats which reinvigorated the weary holidaymakers.

The Cottage, its location and everything about the overall package were fantastic.

Would highly recommend it for anyone visiting West Sussex.

This is an excellent accommodation in the wonderful town of Arundel. The owners provided some essential food items and toiletries which was a good touch. Very Private and of a high standard.
