Rooms & Rates
Originally a coaching inn, The Bell in Ticehurst is a cosy boutique hotel with a log fire, beamed ceilings and eclectic décor. Set in the quaint village of Ticehurst, the hotel is close to Pashley Manor Gardens, and Bewl Water is less than five miles away through the East Sussex countryside. Brighton is 30 miles away and Eastbourne is 50 minutes from the hotel.
The National Trust's 14th-century Bodiam Castle, complete with a moat, battlements and the castle's original wooden portcullis, is a 15-minute drive away and Battle, the site of the Battle of Hastings, is 20 minutes' drive away.
The Daily Telegraph desribes The Bell in Ticehurst's décor as full of "quirky surprises", and one of "Britain's most charming and idiosyncratic boutique hotels", and it's little wonder when you see the playful design inside. From French horns as urinals and a silver birch tree trunks in every bedroom to a stuffed squirrel in a rocking chair, this pub with rooms is definitely out of the ordinary.
In addition to the pub and restaurant, there's a rustic snug, complete with log fire.
The seven individually styled bedrooms feature copper roll-top baths, exposed bricks and mismatched tiles. The four lodges outside feature abstract interiors including a wall of vintage-style clocks. We particularly liked the pretty flower installation above the bed in the Pour L'Amour lodge.
