A venue like no other!
By Stacey Slack, on 12 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 19 May 2018
We looked at venues for over a year, always having The Bell in the backs of our minds.
We were drawn to the small details, the different areas where people could congregate, the air of relaxation, calm and homeliness.
That was before we even met the team and Tessa!
Every step of our journey with The Bell was utterly enjoyable, and as a coordinator myself I felt so reassured having Tessa, and Chloe running our day and all the planning beforehand.
We have had so many compliments on our wedding day from the food, atmosphere, the gorgeous rooms, the fire pit (& marshmallows) and most importantly the fabulous staff who were so attentive but also relaxed enough to feel like part of the day which is exactly what we wanted.
I would thoroughly recommend taking a visit as I don't believe any photo or video can do this venue justice!
We will be visiting again as I am sure my guests will be!
A special place to get married
By Simone & James, on 21 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018
The Bell was the most amazing venue for our beautiful wedding in May 2018. Obviously it is a place with character and just that little bit special if that is your sort of thing. But most importantly, Tessa (!!!) and the rest of the crew are simply wonderful and have made our day. Tessa spent months helping me to organise my scattered brain and move things along (Thanks Tessa!!!). She was there on the day and helped us alongside Reese and other people to move through the day smoothly and without stress. The food was amazing and drinks plenty to go around. Best venue and best staff we could have hoped for!!

Our wedding at The Bell was perfect. Everything leading up to it was carefully covered and all questions dealt promptly and fully with by the lovely Tessa. From the planning, to the food and wine choosing to the day itself the whole experience couldn't have gone better for us. The use of space, changing the rooms to suit the different elements of the day is brilliant and with the sun blazing, the garden and fire bit were just fab. Helped along on the day by the tireless Chloe and the rest of the events team, it went like clockwork and many, many of our guests have commented on how much the venue contributed to such a wonderful day. We'll be back time and again, to reminisce. Thanks, all.

We got married at The Bell on 3rd March 2018, in the snow!! We booked our wedding 3 months beforehand and the wedding coordinator Tessa sorted everything out! She was calm, organised and professional and eased my anxieties about everything. She was also full of good ideas.
On the day the snow was pretty bad and some guests, and the photographer nearly didn’t make it, but it all worked out in the end and the staff at the Bell were fabulous, I was completely unaware of any dramas and thoroughly enjoyed the day. The guests were overwhelmed by the venue, it’s such an unusual and fascinating place with much to talk about, French horn urinals, buffalo heads, stuffed squirrels, a red carpet walk down a stable table.. to name a few. It’s such fun at the Bell as well as being classy, quality and welcoming. Love it and highly recommended. Issy and Lee x
The Most Perfect Day, Ever!
By Nicki and Michael Butler, on 25 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Jan 2018
After booking and in the lead up to our wedding nothing was too much trouble for Tessa. She answered all of our queries promptly and gave really good guidance which helped us to stay stress free.
We had a food tasting, boy was it difficult to choose all the dishes were superb and vegetarians were well catered for.
The big day arrived, and we didn't have to think of anything! We were given a lovely big room for me, five bridesmaids and my mum to get ready in. We ordered breakfast to be delivered and coffee for us all. Lovely Chloe even ran over to the local shop at 7.30 am and got me some shampoo as I'd forgotten mine!
Tessa and the team arrived promptly at 12.45 to take me to the snug and everything ran like clockwork from then on.
The canapes and welcome drinks were delicious and plentiful, and we had a lot of fun in The Stable making our debut red carpet walk!
We were allocated dedicated staff members who ensured the whole day ran smoothly.
All the guests said how wonderful the food was, we chose homemade vegetable soup, pork belly and mustard mash (veggie option also) and sticky toffee pudding for our desert. Everyone cleared their plates and felt very satisfied.
We had a ukulele band after the meal. Everyone was up dancing with lots of fun on the stable table! The staff made sure the guests knew what was happening next and where they needed to be.
We cannot recommend the venue, the staff team, the food and the accommodation highly enough. If you want a wedding exactly as you want it with a team of professional staff to help ease the way and make your dream happen, choose The Bell.

Where shall I begin? Perhaps simply with 'wow'.
We got married at The Bell in January 2018 and I don't think our day could have been made more perfect. From our first meeting with Tessa, the wedding coordinator, we were impressed. The team were so accommodating and welcoming that we instantly felt at ease and as though our day was in safe hands.
The venue is beautiful- quirky, original, unique and unlike anything else out there and that was a major draw for us. It certainly didn't disappoint our guests - I think they'll be talking about the French Horn urinals for some time to come! The day ran very smoothly and was led by a lovely team of two, David and Eve who unobtrusively guided us through the day. Everything ran so smoothly, we didn't notice anything being set up. It was done
without fuss and done to perfection.
We took over the hotel for the weekend and our guests that stayed over at The Bell loved it. Everyone came down to breakfast waxing lyrical about the beds which were like sleeping on a cloud and the rolltop baths which make you feel totally indulged in luxury. It just helped to cap off an exceptional wedding day.
If you want your wedding to be something to remember, I would say that you need to hold it at The Bell. If you want a stress-free day in a jaw-dropping setting, I would say that you need to hold it at The Bell. If you want anything close to a perfect wedding day, I would say that you need to hold it at The Bell.

BEST DAY EVER
By Jo & James Price, on 02 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Dec 2017
The BEST venue, with the BEST team who made us have the BEST day and to quote our guests, 'the BEST wedding ever'!
The Bell is a truly magical place with the most wonderful team of people! There is not one bit of our day that we could have hoped to have gone better and that is largely down to this wonderful place and the team.
We cannot recommend The Bell enough and as we are so fortunate that this is on our doorstep we get the privilege of visiting regularly.
Quirky, relaxed and romantic all rolled into one!
Quirky, Relaxed and Great fun!

The Bell in Ticehurst is the most amazing venue I think we couldn’t ever got married at! Everything was perfect, everything was planned well and everything was just so tasty!
If you want a ‘quirky’ wedding, or just a easy, relaxed wedding ... go to the bell, you won’t regret it!!
The most amazing day at the best venue
By carl and elaine, on 04 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Nov 2017
The Bell in Ticehurst is the most amazing venue. The first time we visited we fell in love with the place. We had never been to a place like it and probably never will. Everything was perfect, The support we got from the very start of the planning was great and every detail was covered. They were very accomodating with our ideas. We wanted different and relaxed and thats what we got. We loved it all and the day will stay in hearts forever. A huge thank you to everyone !!!!
Intimate, unique and glorious!
By Francesca and Adam, on 17 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2017
We are so, so happy that we chose The Bell for our wedding venue. We knew that we wanted somewhere unusual and quirky and the Bell delivered in the most beautiful and special way. The details in the decor meant that dressing the venue was fun and easy as it was a case of enhancing rather than starting from scratch.
The team are incredible; Tessa is an absolute star, always promptly answering questions and fulfilling requests and David was such a warm and calming presence on the day, making sure everything ran smoothly and nobody was left wanting for anything.
Our guests raved about the food and the service during the wedding meal. We were lucky enough with the weather to be able to make use of the beautiful garden space during the day and then enjoyed the cosy romantic open fires as the light dimmed. It is such a picturesque setting and our photographs are wonderful.
Thank you so much for making our day so memorable. The Bell will forever be one of our very favourite places to visit.
An incredibly special place
By Jonathan & Natasha, on 18 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2017
We truly had the best day of our lives! Made all the more perfect by the help and support of everyone at The Bell, especially Tessa and David. The venue is incredible and it was amazing to spend time in the garden with the autumn sun shining. Thank you from bottom of our hearts for a perfect day x
