  • "Overall was a brilliant stay, very clean and accommodating owners."

    Lots of local goodies to try. Only issue had was low hot water temperature. Being the time of year it is I assume it was to be affected. However everything else was a 5*

    Thank you for your great feedback. It was lovely to meet you and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We are very sorry that you had an issue with the water temperature. It should be hot at all times of the year and had we known we could have checked the thermostat which had accidentally been turned down. We have now locked it , so hopefully this will avoid it happening again . Property Owner

    Just outside the front door are horses grazing, rabbits and squirrels jumping around, then the odd fox strolling across the meadow. All of great interest to our whippet, Molly. The owners are really nice, we had some lovely chats. Apple Pod is a lovely cosy and comfortable place to relax, enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Thank you Pauline & Paul for a lovely stay.

    The local village was great for nights in and the beaches and pubs were all dog friendly. Our only quibble was that the WiFi had poor signal and the booster had a different password

    With front doors looking onto a field you have a high level of privacy. The pod is extremely well equipped and comfortable. The bed is just the job to snuggle down in. Pauline and Paul are really lovely hosts and are happy to assist during your stay. Unfortunately, we didn't have the best weather but it was lovely and snug inside the pod. I was really impressed by the property and hope to return again. I highly recommend pod life.

    This was the first time we had taken our dog away so we were a bit nervous how he would be. He loved it! Having use of the field immediately outside the pod was a really great extra and he burnt off his energy sniffing and running about. Everything was very clean and all we could have wanted for a few days away. We are already planning our return visit!!

  • "Apple Pod was perfect for a short stay for two with our dog."

    The Pod was spotless, there was just enough space for storage, and enough kitchen equipment for us to cook if we wanted. The Prosecco, milk and homemade blackberry jam and gin were welcome surprises. We had a very relaxing stay, which is just what we were looking for. Two minor points - the wifi did disconnect quite frequently, and the toilet paper holder was in an awkward position - but otherwise the Pod was delightful.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay . We are sorry that you experienced some Wi-Fi issues, which we believe to be due to an exceptional apple yield on the trees . We are currently taking steps to return this back to normal. Property Owner

About the location


Worthing 8 miles; Goodwood 8 miles; Chichester 10 miles

A popular tourist destination for couples visiting Sussex, Arundel is a historic and picturesque market town. It sits just outside the South Downs National Park with the River Arun winding through it. The town is known for its thriving events calendar with independent shops, contemporary art galleries, restaurants, cafes, delightful drinking spots and great attractions. Leisure pursuits include walking across the South Downs to canoeing, boating or cycling; there is something for everyone in Arundel! Arundel Castle is open to the public from April to October, whilst 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. Within easy reach is the rural village of Yapton, another historic location once thriving with smugglers. Within the village is St Mary’s Church, built around 1180 AD, along with local shops, pubs and a bespoke coffee shop all within walking distance. Climping Beach is a nearby, romantic and quiet pebble beach with an expanse of sand at low tide, perfect for windsurfing and dog walking. Less than an hour's drive away you'll find the cathedral city of Chichester, Brighton and the historic Portsmouth. Arundel is surrounded by diverse landscapes for the best of Sussex countryside and coast.
