Probably the best preserved building of its type remaining in England, The Yeoman's House, listed Grade II*, is a stunning example of a medieval hall house.
Set in about an acre of garden, the present owners have lavished much care and attention on refurbishing the spacious accommodation and have hit on a great balance between preserving the original features and the addition of more contemporary details.
You'll be delighted at the fine timberwork, vaulted ceilings upstairs and some charmingly uneven floors.
The huge chimney breast in the double bedroom is particularly spectacular.
In contrast, the kitchen is completely up-to-date with striking red worktops and stainless steel units with all the modern appliances you'd expect.We think you'll be impressed by the garden which has been beautifully designed by the owner.
There are an abundance of flowers and shrubs, giving interest all year round.
The only choice you'll have to make is whether you sit out on the paved terrace or under a shady tree, both lovely for al fresco dining on a warm summer's day.
This really is an exceptional place to spend some time getting away from it all.

About the location
Worthing 8 miles; Goodwood 8 miles; Chichester 10 miles.
Arundel sits just outside the South Downs National Park and with the River Arun winding through the town makes for a popular tourist destination when visiting Sussex. Combining one thousand years of history with independent shops, contemporary art galleries, restaurants, cafes, delightful drinking spots and great attractions, Arundel has a thriving events calendar. With leisure pursuits from walking across the South Downs to canoeing, boating or cycling, there is something for everyone when you visit Arundel. The town's long and varied history dates back to 1086 when it was mentioned in the Domesday Book and during the 14th century it became the seat for the Dukes of Norfolk. Arundel Castle is one of the longest inhabited country houses in England and is open to the public from April to October. Arundel Cathedral stands majestically over the town and is open every day. This beautiful building is well worth a visit but be ready for the steep climb up the hill and along cobbled streets. So much to see and do no matter what the weather or time of the year, Arundel is the perfect choice, now all you have to decide is "how long can I stay?"
