  The Detail...

Dating back to 1296, this amazing building on the Kent and Sussex border has been fully restored after a rich history of inhabiting monks, being a licenced inn, and much more. Guests can rest and unwind either opting for one of the quirky rooms or a rustic lodge at The Bell in Ticehurst.

Each of the seven double rooms is charmingly eccentric and individual. Inside every one is a king size or super king size bed, a flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities.They also each have an en suite bathroom, some with a huge copper bathtub. There are lovely little touches throughout all of the rooms, including exposed wooden beams, pretty window seats, and grand light fittings. A delicious and hearty breakfast utilising local produce is included as part of the room.

In the garden are four extraordinary wooden lodges dotted around, which have taken their influence from an Oast House. Once again, each has a king or super king size bed and en-suite bathroom, as well as the addition of a sofa bed. They also have their own private outdoor decks with an open fire. The lodge known as the Love Nest ups the romance even further with a round roof terrace offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, a wood burner, deep copper bath in the bedroom, and large wet room with double shower.

For those looking for excellent food and drink then look no further than the bar and restaurant area at The Bell. With an excellent selection of beer and wine, menus that change with the seasons, and a comfortable and cosy traditional pub environment, this is where long evenings begin. It also serves as a venue that hosts a variety of different events throughout the year, from music to comedy, cinema nights to fairs.

There are also plenty of wonderful things to see and right on the doorstep and in the nearby area. For history lovers, there is Scotney and Sissinghurst Castles, as well as the Jacobean home of Rudyard Kipling - Batemans. For those who want to get out and about in nature Bewl Water and Bedgebury Pinetum are great options, with the latter also being the home of Go Ape!
