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 70 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.

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

Venue Service

By Chris & Rachel, on 29 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019

We had our wedding breakfast and party at The Bell and it was the most perfect day. Organising and planning was easy as wedding coordinator Tessa took care of all the details for us, the food was amazing, and the venue itself is so beautifully quirky and unique - perfect for any couples looking for something a bit different! Thank you Tessa and team, everybody had a great time!

Quirky, fun, delicious!
Venue Service

By Natalie and Jonathan, on 13 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Feb 2019

We chose to have an intimate wedding ceremony and reception with just 27 guests at The Bell on a Thursday in February, and then hosted a big party in London on the Saturday. From the minute we first stepped foot in The Bell, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. It’s not a traditional wedding venue, which is exactly what we were looking for. It’s quirky with a relaxed vibe and made for such a fun wedding. Tessa, Eve and the team were amazing throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and we could really make the day our own. The chef, Oscar, is also great and the food is AMAZING – all of our guests agreed. A few of our favourite things about The Bell include the awesome red carpet (where we chose to have our ceremony), the seriously good Chef’s dessert banquet and the gorgeous rooms (especially the Lodges and Love Nest). We can’t wait to return to celebrate our anniversary!

It's The Staff
Venue Service

By Daryl & Hattie Fitzpatrick, on 12 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Feb 2019

The Bell was the perfect venue for our February wedding and we received nothing but compliments about it. As amazing as the space and decor is though, it's really the staff that make this venue what it is. They're great. From the planning phase with Tessa, to the staff on shift in the bars and kitchens, and those specifically looking after things during the event (We had Eve and Hannah), they get all involved with as much or as little as you'd like and ensure that everything goes smoothly which allowed us to enjoy the day.

We were the last wedding of 2018 and we couldn’t have picked a more perfect winter wedding venue. We were warmly welcomed from the moment we arrived and married at a wonderful intimate ceremony with family and friends In The Stable. Tessa was superb from day one and her team looked after us amazingly on the day. We loved everything about The Bell especially the accommodation. It’s not surprising they’ve won so many awards. Well deserved.

A perfect day!

What a wonderful venue for a quirky wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our special day. Tessa, Eve and the team were amazing and everything went so smoothly. Food was terrific and the service superb. With beautiful rooms to stay in as well, it was a fantastic venue for us to get married in!

Rebecca and Ashley's Wedding
Venue Service

By Rebecca and Ashley, on 17 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Dec 2018

We had the most wonderful winter wedding at the Bell Inn, filled with twinkling lights, crackling fires, winter pimms and a live band. All our close family and friends gathered for a cosy day to celebrate our next chapter. We couldn't have achieved such a magical day without the help of Tessa and the Bell crew. We didn't think the wedding would even go ahead because of the bride being so ill. But it all happened in the end and it was everything we dreamed. Thank you so much xx

The most perfect venue
Venue Service

By Emily & David, on 02 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Nov 2018

Wow!! That was the reaction from all our guests after the most special day for our wedding. The venue is truly unique, both inside and out and provides a relaxed setting for your wedding. The staff were brilliant, especially Tessa and Eve, as nothing was ever too much trouble and their relaxed approach puts you at ease. They were fully on board to try new ideas and showed enthusiasm for them too. The food was exceptional and we are still getting comments about how it was the best wedding food anyone has had. We also loved the fire pit and sparkler experience at the end of the night. I am so happy we chose this venue as it couldn't have been more perfect for relaxed foodies like ourselves. We will look forward to coming back, staying and eating here every year. Thank you The Bell.

What can we say? We had the most magical wedding day at the Bell on 3 November 2018. Tessa was super efficient in all the planning leading up to our big day and Eve on the day was just "on it". Nothing flustered her and the team ( not even when our wedding singer's waters broker after our ceremony!) They organised an emergency playlist for our wedding breakfast and kept us running on time. The food, we had the pea & ham soup, followed by roast salmon and crumble for pudding. it was all delicious, our guest commented all day about the quirkiness of the venue but also its intimacy and the friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble and we honestly had the most wonderful day- with no stress, because they took this away from us. Leaving us to enjoy every second of the day, what more could a Bride and Groom ask for? The only comment we would make for a future recommendation, would be that everything was an "extra" i.e the love nest, we'd probably have preferred the cost to be built into everything else so it didn't feel like an extra. That said, it was the loveliest room either one of us has ever stayed in and it completed our stay in a perfect way. We will most definitely be back for our anniversary, if not before. Thank you to everyone for making our day a truly memorable day to remember forever.

Quirky, cosy, dog friendly!

By Abby Wheeler, on 08 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2018

We had our wedding at The Bell in October 2018. We fell in love with the place the moment we stepped inside and knew we wanted our day to be held there! It's quirky, rustic, relaxed and fun which is everything we wanted. Tessa was absolutely fantastic in the lead up and planning our of big day, we couldn't have asked for more from her. Despite some hiccups on the day itself (great British weather being one of them!) the team made sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. Thanks to everyone involved!

Everything we hoped for
Venue Service

By Jo & Lee, on 10 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2018

We would highly recommend The Bell for any couple looking for something a bit different for their wedding. The venue is amazing with so many ‘quirky’ features, lovely rooms and a great atmosphere. The food (we had the lamb & veggie option of the stuffed peppers) was excellent and everything went very smoothly. The evening buffet was fantastic with many comments about the best sausages ever! Our guests were so complimentary about their experience - the food, the staff, the service - they loved it & we felt so good about choosing The Bell for our special day! Thanks so much to Tessa, Eve and all the staff for helping make our wedding day everything we had hoped for.

The best day of our lives at the best venue!
Venue Service

By Daniella Moore, on 20 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Oct 2018

We got married at The Bell in October and it was hand down the best day of our lives. Tess and the wedding team made sure everything ran smoothly throughout planning and on the day, which meant we really didn't have to worry about a thing! The venue itself is absolutely stunning and unique in every way. If we could get married here every week, we would!
