Full Description
The Bell's design is eclectic in the truest sense of the word, as if an eccentric nobleman has travelled the world and stuffed his house full of curiosities from his travels. Old typewriters, ancient novels and safari chairs, 30's-style suitcase and mismatched chandeliers; the result is quirky and utterly charming. The opulent Big Room can accommodate up to 90 guests seated, and 120 for your evening celebrations. The distinctive wallpaper and grandiose collection of chandeliers offer you and your guests a unique space to celebrate your partnership, enjoy a beautiful meal and party the night away. Downstairs in the historic Stables you can celebrate your nuptials with your very own Red Carpet Walk which is rolled out just for you along the exceptionally long wooden table. Enjoy drinks and canapes from your personal bar. Under our beautiful pink neon, ‘I will always love you my friend’ is the perfect place for speeches, offering a more informal approach to the tradition. Our Cosy Snug is your own little space to chill out and relax during the day. After your ceremony we will smuggle you away to spend a little time by yourselves before the mingling begins. This is also the perfect place for guests young and old to rest on the comfy seats, enjoy the roaring fire, and get away from the noise (but only for a few minutes!). The Bell is also equipped with 11 beautifully distinctive rooms, all with their own personality. Your guests won’t want to get up for breakfast! Our amazing Love Nest lodge will be yours for the night, equipped with a fantastic copper roll top bath, perfect for a long luxurious soak. Warm up with your very own log burner and snuggle up in the Nest, the perfect place to end your day. Although The Bell is located in the heart of the East Sussex countryside, it still has great road and rail access, with Brighton only an hour away, and London 90 minutes.

We cannot thank the staff at The Bell enough
We cannot thank the staff at The Bell enough for their superb service. From the moment we booked we were so impressed with how Tessa our wedding coordinator made sure our day was exactly what we wanted. The food was sublime and every member of staff went out of their way to ensure we had the perfect day. Special mention to Jess who made sure our day ran like clockwork. Would thoroughly recommend!

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.

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 .
