About The Bell in Ticehurst

High Street, Ticehurst
East Sussex, TN5 7AS

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!

• Maximum 90 guests catered for and 120 evening guests • Unique styled wedding venue • Flexible approach with attention to detail • Set in a garden full of plants and Mulberry trees provide shade in summer and an outdoor fire pit for warmth in winter. • The wine list features 100 bins and embraces fine English vintages, many of which are produced in the area. • WINNER OF NATIONAL WEDDING INDUSTRY AWARDS BEST EVENTS TEAM SOUTH EAST 2018

The loveliest wedding venue
Venue Service

By Emma and Alex, on 27 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2019

We had exactly the wedding weekend we were looking for at The Bell. From the cosy fires to the delicious food and drink, beautiful lighting and decorations and glorious bedrooms, it provided the perfect setting for all the eating, drinking, chatting and dancing we could have hoped for. It is such a perfect venue for customising to your own type of wedding and it achieved just the relaxed non-traditional vibe we were going for. Tessa and Hannah and all the team are superstars and really made sure we didn't have to do or worry about anything other than having a weekend full of joy and love :) We will always remember our wonderful weekend at The Bell and are forever grateful :)

The best wedding venue

We had our wedding at the Bell on 20th October 2019 and can honestly say it was the best wedding venue we could have chosen. Tessa and Hannah were amazing and looked after us throughout the last 11 months and on the day itself. Our guests loved the food and the decor, the accommodation was amazing and the whole day was happy, relaxed and just perfect in every way! Thank you everyone at the Bell xx

By Simon & Claire, on 04 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Oct 2019

The Bell and all their staff are absolutely amazing! My wife and I cannot believe how smooth our day went and just how attentive and professional all their staff are. We were assisted by Hannah throughout the day and she took care of EVERYTHING. She was so on it! We were thoroughly impressed by how attentive she was to so many details. Her experience shines through and we didn't have to worry about a thing through out the day. We were able to relax, kick back and enjoy ourselves - something that doesn't come naturally to either myself or my wife so that just goes to show just how skillful they are! I highly recommend The Bell, you won't be sorry if you go with this venue.

Wouldn't change a thing, other than the weather!

What a wonderful weekend! Everything about The Bell is simply perfect for a wedding - easy, friendly planning, exceptional service, fantastic food and drink and all reasonably priced. Nothing was too much trouble, & Eve who looked after us was amazing! Would 100% recommend The Bell for your wedding.

The best day!

By Alex & Matt Walsh, on 07 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 05 Oct 2019

What can we say, the Bell is a very special wedding venue, made even more special by the quality of its staff, accommodation, food, and drink it has to offer! We were married, dined, partied, and stayed at the Bell on our wedding day, and had the most fantastic time! The day ran smoothly, without a hitch, and their experienced team made it look effortless...while making us and our guests feel special. I will recommend the Bell to everyone! Thanks always, Alex & Matt xx

We were blown away
Venue Service

By Natasha & Amy Spalding Hill, on 19 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Sep 2019

We cannot thank you and every single member of the team that was on duty over the weekend of the 21st September enough, for your hard work, dedication and impeccable attention to detail. We (and every single one of our guests that we have spoken to since) were blown away with the level of service that we received. In fact, both Tasha and I have discussed on several occasions now, how it feels as though the team at the Bell were just as much a part of our wedding day celebrations as our loved ones were, in making the day as special and memorable as it was! So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much!! Quite simply, we would recommend you guys in a heartbeat and so too, would all of our guests! For you are all Marvellous! With lots of love, fond memories, and best wishes for your upcoming renovations...

Just perfect!

By Kelly & Jamie Maguire, on 07 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2019

The Bell staff were excellent from beginning to end, helping us to plan our perfect day without being pushy. In the run up to our day, Tessa was wonderful and always available to answer random and last minute queries. The day itself was perfect and we can't praise the team highly enough. Everything went smoothly and the approximate timings we had been given beforehand for the day were spot on (despite the groom being late!) All of our guests commented on what an amazing venue The Bell was; relaxed, intimate, quirky and fun. The food was delicious and we had lots of compliments from guests about the wonderful menu. We were lucky enough to have beautiful, warm weather in the middle of September so we were able to have our drinks reception outside in the gorgeous garden. The staff brought speakers outside so we could still have music and it was just perfect! We had the most amazing day and are thrilled we chose The Bell as it just wouldn't have been the same day anywhere else! Thank you so much to all the team there. Really wish we could do it all over again!!

Wonderful in every way!

By Lydia & Tarik, on 16 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

The Bell is just the most wonderful venue. We wanted somewhere where you could do everything under the same roof and I found The Bell on the internet. From the moment we set foot in there we knew it was exactly what we wanted. Tessa the wedding co-ordinator was brilliant - so efficient, thoughtful and just lovely. She made us feel so relaxed and you just knew everything was in hand. The Bell have managed to get exactly the right balance of being a luxurious venue in many ways - beautiful rooms and garden with lovely interesting touches everywhere you look, yet it is also such a warm, relaxed and intimate place, where the staff are all so helpful and happy. We have had so many comments from our guests about how amazing the place was in all ways.. Hannah co-ordinated everything on the day and was just brilliant, so patient and understanding - nothing was too much trouble. The food was also just incredible.. We had just the most brilliant perfect day. If you want an intimate warm and relaxed wedding, in a beautiful and interesting venue, don't book anywhere else until you’ve seen The Bell.

The Best Day Ever!
Venue Service

By Jess & Tom Oakman, on 24 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Aug 2019

The Bell in Ticehurst was everything we could have hoped for. The quirky venue suited us perfectly and all our personal touches were accommodated and blended in really well. Tessa was with us throughout the planning process and the staff on the day worked unbelievably hard to make sure that our day ran smoothly and transitions between different parts of the day were super calm and enjoyable. We were both so chilled out all day knowing that The Bell would sort everything. A member of staff even went to our room in the evening to get my flip-flops then took my Wedding shoes back! The food was amazing quality and really tasty, we had loads of comments on how nice it was. In fact we had more comments than I could count from guests after the wedding saying that it was the best wedding they had ever been to! This was all down to The Bell’s organization, professionalism and sense of fun!

Where to start!!!! We had the most AMAZING day. All throughout the planning and organising, Tessa was brilliant. We chose the Bell because it's a bit different as a wedding venue and had great food and service from the staff. Everything was taken care of and went off without a hitch - from the decorations going up and down, they took care of everything for us so we didn't even need to think about anything other than enjoying ourselves on the day. A big special mention to Eve too who took amazing care of us, even helping me with a dress tag I couldn't get off without her help! Our guests have done nothing but compliment the time they had at The Bell and how much they enjoyed it. If you're considering the bell as a wedding venue, do not hesitate! I wish we could do it all over again, but we will definitely be coming back! (We found any excuse to go there during the planning period for lunch too!)

Had the best day!

We recently got married and had our evening reception at The Bell in Ticehurst and had the best day! From day 1 when I contacted them everything was so easy and smooth running - Tessa was fantastic and really helpful, as were the team on the day who looked after us and our guests. The venue itself if really quirky and relaxed, the food delicious and the rooms comfortable and imaginative. We couldn't have chosen a better venue! Thank you to everyone at The Bell who helped us have such an amazing day!!!
