The feel

**NEW FOR 2020!!!  We are currently undergoing an extension / refurb within our function rooms, this is set to be completed by the middle of March.  The reason for undertaking this development is to offer couples greater exclusivity by creating an independent bar and fabulous seating adjacent to The Stable and more space upstairs in The Assembly Hall.  Of course, the decor will have that certain unique Bell quirkiness and we are delighted to be working with a talented designer, Melissa White to create our very own Bell wallpaper.  The last couple of photos in the album are CGI visuals of what the new space is likely to look like.

Come and visit us soon, we look forward to welcoming you with open arms!**

The ambience at The Bell in Ticehurst is distinctly laid back, a little bit quirky and definitely not run of the mill. This fabulous old coaching inn has been lovingly refurbished – the perfect place to celebrate life, love and happiness.

The Bell’s design is eclectic in the truest sense of the word, looking as if an eccentric nobleman has travelled the world and stuffed his house full of curiosities from his travels. Old typewriters, ancient novels and safari chairs, 30’s-style suitcase and mismatched chandeliers; the result is quirky and utterly charming – Alice in Wonderland would feel right at home.

Each of the Bell’s seven bedrooms, their lodges and Love Nest has its own distinctive name, from “The Benefit of the Doubt” to “Smiles of Memories.”Deep copper baths, sinfully comfortable beds and individually sourced vintage furniture all help to make this special place feel immediately inviting and relaxed. No need to stand on ceremony here – live it, breathe it and do with it what you will.

Located in the heart of the East Sussex countryside with good road and rail access, London is only 90 minutes away, Brighton an hour.
