The Bell in Ticehurst is a gorgeous sixteenth century coaching inn brought right up to date with a £2 million pound plus refurbishment. Wedding guests will delight in the quirkiness of this historic pub.
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, from old typewriters and ancient novels to safari chairs, 30's-style suitcase and mismatched chandeliers. The result is quirky and utterly charming - Alice in Wonderland would feel right at home.
Wedding guests will be charmed by the delightful accommodation. Each of The Bell's 7 guest room has its own distinctive name, from "The Benefit of the Doubt" to "Smile of Memories", with some featuring open fires or log burning stoves. The Bridal Suite, appropriately named "The Then and Now", spreads over two floors with a seating area on the lower floor and a snug barn-style mezzanine bedroom. Guests don't have to forego modern life altogether however, as the vintage-feel of the building is offset by modern technology, including flat-screen Apple TVs in each room.
