  • James & Grace

    The Bell Inn was the perfect setting for our special day in the wonderful New Forest. Every part of our exclusive wedding went so smoothly thanks to all of the hard working and friendly staff. Every detail was planned and executed to perfection – from our intimate ceremony in the Garden Room to celebratory drinks in the garden, the delicious wedding breakfast and of course an evening full of dancing, drinks and laughter. As the evening drew to a close, the exclusive use of the hotel meant our guests could stay and enjoy the beautiful rooms and have a relaxed breakfast in the morning. We could not have asked for a better way to start married life together and we cannot recommend The Bell Inn enough.

  • Chris & Andrea

    We had a fabulous wedding day at the Bell and our exclusive use package meant everyone and everything was focused on making our day really special. Our guests thought the location in the New Forest and the Bell were superb and several have said they will go back themselves for a meal or a stay. Even our dog had star treatment and was taken off for a walk whilst our ceremony was taking place. Throughout the day, all the staff were fantastic and were still smiling late into the evening. We felt really supported throughout the whole process from the time we booked until we left on the Sunday.
