We talk a lot about how much we love our home town of Arundel on the South Downs. We live in a town house which is fab – but we wish the garden was bigger and often moan about the on street parking strains. But our business is lucky enough to be based in an old Game Lodge in the grounds of a Castle (seat of the Duke of Norfolk) and there are restaurants, pubs and fabulous shops a stones throw from our home, as well as a lido, Cathedral, a river, lake, wetland centre, museum and beach!
Yet there are amazingly less than 500 homes in the town (and no chance of that town ‘spread’ you often find) due to being surrounded by the South Downs National Park… and the Downs are what we truly love about this part of the country. Within a minute of our house we can be lost, without a soul to see for miles around… but if we are feeling social we also have a thriving cafe culture.. art scene.. gallery trail.. festival .. Goodwood events and plenty of old school calendar fun that frequently fills our blog.
So it wasn’t too much of a surprise to us this month that The Times voted Arundel No 1 town to live in (outside of London) .. naming town houses on our road the ‘prime properties’…
Note to self: don’t complain about the parking so much and thank our lucky stars everyday we get to be where lots of people wished they were.
Hope to see you here sometime soon x
