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!

The loveliest wedding venue
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 :)Sent on 27/11/2019

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 xxSent on 19/12/2019
