Introducing Caen Stone Court Welcome to Caen Stone Court, a McCarthy & Stone flagship development for the active retired, set in the heart of historic Arundel. Located on Queen Street to the east of the River Arun, this exclusive development of just 24 one and two bedroom apartments has been built with the high specification and exacting standards you would expect from the UK’s leading retirement builder. Within the grounds of the development is a town garden which provides a tranquil retreat in which owners can relax. A number of apartments benefit from oblique views of the river and the magnificent Arundel Castle.

A name with historical connections The name Caen Stone Court provides the perfect link to Arundel’s history. Caen Stone or Pierre de Caen, is a light creamy-yellow Jurassic limestone. During the 11th and 12th Centuries the stone was imported via the Port of Arundel from the city of Caen in North West France. The stone was a popular building material with the Normans in England and used in the construction of many ecclesiastical and prestigious buildings across the country. Most notable include Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London, indeed the white tower at the Tower of London is named after the stone’s appearance. In the grounds of Arundel Castle the shell Keep was also originally constructed from Caen Stone and is believed to have been built by William d’Albini II to celebrate his marriage to Adeliza of Louvain, following the death of her previous husband King Henry I.

The picturesque town of Arundel sits nestled among the beauty of the South Downs on the banks of the River Arun. Dominating the town is the magnificent Arundel Castle. Built at the end of the 11th Century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel, the castle has been the seat of the Dukes of Norfolk and Earls of Arundel for over 700 years. High on the hill overlooking the town is Our Lady & St Philip Howard Cathedral. With its Victorian Gothic splendour, the cathedral was designed by notable architect Joseph Hansom to sit as a suitable counterpart to the castle. The town itself is a fascinating mix of old and new, with its narrow lanes, cobbled streets and varying architectural styles whilst being home to a host of restaurants, boutiques and a selection of shops. The River Arun winds its way around the town and is a magnet for wildlife, with more than 60 acres of ponds, lakes and reedbeds. To the east of the river, just a short walk from the town centre is Caen Stone Court.

Arundel and Around The history and beauty of Arundel make this Sussex market town a unique location in which to live. With its selection of individual shops, restaurants and tea rooms to enjoy, life takes on a relaxed pace. At the heart of the town is the River Arun, linking the town via a gentle boat ride to the picturesque village of Amberley in the East and the maritime port of Littlehampton down river. The town is home to an active arts scene enjoying working galleries and a studio theatre housed in the ‘Victoria Club’. The renowned Arundel festival takes place every August and attracts musical artists of national and international repute. For those who enjoy the outdoor life, the Arundel Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre and Amberley Wild Brooks nature reserves offer the ideal locations to view the native flora and fauna. The town boasts an outdoor lido as well as two bowls clubs, and for those who enjoy a round of golf there are a variety of public and private courses in the local area.

Exploring the South Downs Encompassing Arundel is some of England’s most beautiful countryside. The South Downs extend for over 100 miles connecting the Eastern side of Hampshire to Beachy Head in East Sussex. Arundel and the surrounding villages lie within the Sussex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and this unspoilt area is a joy to discover.

Beautiful surroundings


Chichester The pretty Cathedral city of Chichester offers a blend of traditional architecture and contemporary living. With a wide array of high street stores and bespoke boutiques all in a pedestrianised area, shopping is a pleasure. The Chichester and District Museum offers the opportunity to discover the city’s long and dramatic history. The celebrated Chichester Festival Theatre provides the opportunity to see the cream of British acting talent and throughout the seasons offers a variety of drama, musical and comedy. For those with an interest in the arts, The Pallant House Gallery along with The Cass Sculpture Foundation provide a platform from which to view some of the best exhibitions in British Modern Art. The internationally acclaimed Goodwood Racecourse is on the city’s doorstep and not only hosts a season of fine racing but is home to the annual ‘Festival of Speed’.

Worthing The seaside town of Worthing with its five miles of award-winning coastline came to prominence in the 18th Century following claims that sea water could cure all ills. Today, Worthing is the largest town in West Sussex with a host of shopping and leisure facilities to enjoy. The promenade is the place along which to enjoy a gentle stroll, and the pier which dates back to 1862 evokes memories of holidays past. The Connaught Theatre with its art-deco styling stages a variety of plays and musicals, whilst art-house and modern films are on show at the independent Dome cinema.
