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

Amazing day, perfect day of memories
Our wedding was rearranged 3 times due to covid, but nothing was too much for the venue and we they helped us seamlessly organise the most amazing day. Food was superb and plenty of it to keep us going throughout the day (suggest the evening Mac and cheese!). The staff were so attentive and Tess and Bryce kept everything moving and seamless throughout and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Our close family all stayed at the venue too the night before and after which made a huge difference as it become a full weekend of celebrations, and the rooms, lodges and garden are simply beautiful. A perfect day of memories, thank you.

Perfect Wedding Venue in East Sussex
We had our wedding reception at The Bell and it was perfect! The atmosphere was amazing, the staff were attentive and so friendly, and the food was delicious. Our guests were coming up to us all night to compliment the venue! The accommodation was just what we wanted, and so quirky! Thank you so much to Tessa, Bryce and the team, we're already looking at coming back for our 1st anniversary!

Attentive, responsive, friendly, perfect!
We had our wedding at The Bell at the beginning of October. Tessa and the Events Team handled everything perfectly all the way through the process. We felt that we asked so many questions, but the team were always happy to help. The day itself was perfect. We’ve been to a lot of weddings where timings fall by the wayside and the bride and groom are running around. The team at The Bell made sure we were all in the right place at the right time and we didn’t have to do anything! The food is exceptional. The decor is unique. Honestly we could not have asked for better!

Perfect medium sized wedding at The Bell
We loved every single moment of our wedding at The Bell, from getting ready in the inn and lodges to the ceremony in the cosy room upstairs, the confetti catwalk, the amazing food and wine served at three long tables where we sat, the speeches in the stable, dancing upstairs and then ending the night around the campfire (and many more memories that we'll keep thinking of!) And all our guests said how very "us" the day was, so thank you to The Bell for providing the perfect venue and accommodating all our personal touches. We didn't have to think of a thing on the day as Tessa, Bryce, Jess and the team were always ready and had it covered. Everything was perfect and we'll talk about our wedding at The Bell forever.

Sublime Wedding
We had our wedding at The Bell just over a week ago snd still can’t get over how perfect it all was. Tessa, Bryce, Jess and the team were absolutely brilliant- they did everything possible to put us at ease, and ensure the day ran smoothly. The meal was out of this world, everyone has commented on how they have never had such good food mass catered. It was piping hot and delicious- usually you find that even the best of places dip in quality when cooking on mass, but that didn’t happen - the quality was as good as when we had our tasting meal- who knew carrots could taste that good? The venue looked superb and of course truly unique. It was everything we dreamed and more. We were so fortunate with the weather and we’re able to use the beautiful outdoor area all day as well. Loved that we had the fire pit late at night fir sparklers and marshmallows. The atmosphere over the whole day was incredible. Our guests were all wowed by it and are desperate to return. We felt totally taken care of by the team - nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. Thank you so much to you all. We would recommend The Bell for a wedding, quite without reservation .

Our Intimate September Wedding at The Bell
We were lucky enough to chance upon this unique venue when we treated ourselves to dinner and an overnight stay for a birthday celebration. Whilst there, we realised that this was indeed a hidden gem. From the first moment that Tessa showed us around we realised this would be the ideal venue for our intimate wedding. She encouraged and advised us on how we should go ahead with our reception with lots of good ideas carried out with professionalism. Her attention to detail was sublime. We were so grateful for her input into our day. The venue is was outstanding, quirky and homely. We had an amazing day, with superb food and exceptional attention to detail by all of the staff. Our day was led by Bryce with good humour, and there was nothing they wouldn’t do to help our day go without any hiccups. All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue and accommodation was, and lots looking forward to returning there soon. We will definitely be back to enjoy the incredible unique accommodation and exceptional food. We can’t thank you enough for making our day so special.
