Full Description
Celebrate life, love and happiness Nestled in the heart of an English country village, welcoming visitors from near and far over 400 years, The Bell is no ordinary wedding venue. We like to be a bit different, use our imagination and pull out all the stops to make your day truly memorable, whether you want a cosy winter wedding with log fires or to throw open the doors to let the sunshine in. The Bell’s design is eclectic in the truest sense of the word. The building looks as if an eccentric nobleman has travelled the world and stuffed his house full of curiosities from his travels. The result is utterly charming. Local ales on tap, heart-warming food sourced from local suppliers and attentive staff make any stay memorable. The seven guest rooms offer highly individual design, with features including silver birch branches, huge copper bath tubs, upside-down tiles and randomly placed light features. The Love Nest and three lodges are set in beautifully designed gardens around a central fire pit. The Love Nest has a wood-burning stove, copper bath, double shower and a private roof terrace. Our Big Room for fancy dos can accommodate 90 guests sitting down and up to 120 for evening parties. So whether you want to get married at The Bell or simply celebrate your nuptials with us, we are yours for the day. NEW FOR 2020!!! We are currently undergoing an extension / refurb within our function rooms, this is set to be completed by the middle of March. 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.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Tessa Stewart
I have been a Wedding Coordinator for about 8 years, and here at The Bell for over 4 years. I am with you from the moment you send your initial inquiry until the day of the wedding, I think it is important to have that one point of contact who you know if you have any question will be there to answer and to guide you through the process of planning your wedding. I love what I do and am always here to help!

The team are superstars
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

The staff are absolutely amazing!
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.

The Bell is a very special wedding venue
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
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...
