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.
