Nestled in the pastoral countryside close to the Kent and East Sussex border, we like to think that The Bell is a rather unusual wedding venue.


If you are contemplating something a little out of the ordinary for your special day, you need look no further.

No ordinary wedding venue

Our promise is to pull out all the stops for a wedding day to remember. Whether you are looking for robust and rustic or Alice in Wonderland whimsical, we are here to help make your dreams come true.

If you desire the different and uncommon, then contact Tessa (who is perfectly lovely and normal) to begin the exciting journey towards your big day.

Call 01580 200300 or email  for more information.


Weddings at The Bell

The Bell is the perfect backdrop for a quirky wedding that will delight you and your guests. 

Relaxed informality is dispensed with dedicated professionalism, gained from being one of the most highly favoured wedding venues in East Sussex. 

We are a licensed wedding venue with a maximum capacity of 80 guests for the wedding ceremony and formal reception, and up to 120 guests for the evening reception. We would also be delighted to be the venue for your wedding reception, even if you're getting married elsewhere.

Make a night of it

What could be more perfect, having exchanged your vows, than to spend the first night of married life inside a Love Nest? A copper bath nestled next to a wood burner, a double shower and of course a sinfully comfortable double bed await you. All in a giant, round, wonderful nest.

There's room for special guests too in one of our quirky lodges or individually charming rooms.

Wedding menus

We may be an unusual wedding venue, but our food is delicious and unchallenging.

Whether you desire a sumptuous buffet or a splendid three-course wedding breakfast, choose from one of our delectable menus. 


Hens & stags

Whether you are getting married at The Bell or not, it is a great place to hunker down with your hens and stags.

From In room pampering to quad bike safaris, book the lodges for the weekend and bond under the stars around the fire pit.



Don't take our word for it

There is nothing quite like The Bell for a distinctively different wedding venue but don’t take our word for it.
