About The Bell in Ticehurst
No ordinary wedding venue in East Sussex. A gorgeous and quirky sixteenth century coaching inn wedding venue, licensed for civil ceremonies set in the beautiful East Sussex countryside, on the out skirts of Kent.
The ambience at The Bell in Ticehurst is distinctly laid back, a little bit quirky and definitely not run of the mill. This fabulous old coaching inn has been lovingly refurbished - the perfect place to celebrate life, love and happiness.
Our Big Room for fancy occasions can accommodate 90 guests catered for and up to 120 guests for your evening party. So whether you would like to get married at The Bell, or simply just celebrate your marriage with us, we will be yours for the day.
There are seven individual rooms, and four extraordinary lodges for you and your guests to stay in. On your first night of married life, you can spend it in the Love Nest, the perfect place to begin married bliss.
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.
Come and visit us soon, we look forward to welcoming you with open arms!
