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.
Our Big Room for fancy occasions can accommodate 90 guests catered for and up to 120 guests for your evening party. So whether you would like to get married at The Bell, or simply just celebrate your marriage with us, we will be yours for the day.
The Bell’s design is diverse in the truest sense of the word. The building looks as though an eccentric nobleman has travelled around the world and has stuffed the house full of curiosities from his travels, from old typewriters and ancient novels to safari chairs and mismatched chandeliers!
We like to be a little bit different and pull out all the stops to make your day truly memorable, making The Bell no ordinary wedding venue – whether you would like to host a cosy winter wedding with log fires, or throw open the doors to let the sunshine in!
We have a very flexible approach and pay huge attention to detail, working alongside you the whole step of the way. We don’t mind if granddad wants to have a snooze in the snug, or if the godchildren run riot, or if your aunt decides to dance on the table – in fact, we quite like it.
There are seven individual rooms, and four extraordinary lodges for you and your guests to stay in. On your first night of married life, you can spend it in the Love Nest, the perfect place to begin married bliss. This subterranean cocoon comes complete with a copper bath, double shower, wood burner and a private roof terrace.
NEW FOR 2020!!! We are in the final stages of an extension / refurb within our function rooms. 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, along with the new wallpaper already up on the wall.
Come and visit us soon, we look forward to welcoming you with open arms!

Amazing wedding venue
Finally we managed to get married at this amazing venue, our date was postponed 4 times as we went into the first lockdown only 7 days before our original date. Having said this nothing was ever too much trouble for Tess the wedding coordinator who was caring, proactive and just brilliant. I honestly can not thank her enough for all that she did for us!
The venue is second to none, relaxed, quirky but with great attention to detail, all our guests adored it. The food and drinks were superb and staff were fantastic. Accommodation is unique and very special the bridal party stayed the night before the wedding which worked wonderfully and I used Nicola Downey for hair ( one of the recommended suppliers) who was superb. Our guests accommodated all of the rooms on the wedding night and loved them!. The fire pit after dark with sparklers and marshmallows was just magical as were the gardens , a perfect little oasis.
We will be back for our anniversary for sure and if your looking for a unique, special place to create amazing memories, this is itSent on 21/07/2021

Such A Perfect Day!
Well, what can we say! We had THE most amazing, incredible, beautiful day and it’s all thanks to The Bell. All of our guests have said it was the perfect venue, and they’re not wrong.
Tessa, the wedding organiser there, was absolutely brilliant from booking our first viewing of The Bell right through to the day itself. Luckily we didn’t have to move our date at all but we had planned two ‘versions’ of the wedding as our day was close to when all Covid restrictions were supposed to lift. Despite having some last minute unwanted restrictions, Tessa and The Bell made it all work superbly and really did enable us to have the day we had imagined.
Jess and Bryce who looked after us on the day were amazing , as was the whole team! The food is SO nice there, Oscar the head chef is an absolute gent and clearly loves what he does. The food service was so quick, no one was left with an empty glass and the day ran smoothly with no hiccups.
We stayed overnight with our families and a few friends and the rooms are all amazing, beds are so comfy, showers brilliant and breakfast was great! The best part is we can (and will!) return for anniversaries etc and relive some of the magic.
We honestly can’t thank them enough for everything they did for us, if you’re reading this and haven’t booked a venue yet, book a viewing with Tessa right now!Sent on 10/07/2021

Happiest of Days
The Bell and the wonderful team that work there provided us with everything we needed for a day, and wedding eve, that provided more happiness, fun, laughter and joy than we could have imagined. Through a few lockdown induced date changes, Tessa ("Head of Weddings") was incredibly supportive, kind and a brilliant sounding board as we each tried to fathom out what we could do within the "restrictions". We didn't feel restricted at all - you couldn't at the Bell. It's a one off location which we have loved for many years and every member of the team that played a part in our day was brilliant and part of our happy memories. Oscar and his team create sensational food; Tessa and her team on the day couldn't have done more for us and our guests. Everyone loved it. We'd love to do it all again but will find plenty of other celebrations to return for; again and again. We will always be happy we discovered the Bell - we were only ever going to be married here. We didn't consider anywhere else.Sent on 01/06/2021
