He was involved in the suppression of the Peasants' Revolt in 1381. He was appointed Sheriff of Kent for 1382 and 1386 and knighted in 1385. He was elected knight of the shire (MP) for Kent in 1390, 1391, 1401, 1402 and 1404, being elected speaker twice. He was constable of Queenborough Castle from 1393 to 1396 and deputy constable of Dover Castle. He was a member of the council of Henry IV from 1402 to 1406. He was an executor of John Gower's will.

On his death in 1410 he was buried at Bobbing church. He had married Joan Eychingham, daughter of William Eychinham. He was succeeded by his son, also Arnold, who was also an MP for Kent. Their daughter Elizabeth Savage (died 1451) married Reynold Cobham, 4th Baron Cobham.
