The hotel really does have a great location for walking in forest.The food was fresh, properly prepared and a great value for the price. We highly recommend it. The breakfast buffet on Sunday was equally as good.

If you like your Sunday roasts, then this lovely place would be hard to beat! Tasty, well cooked and presented, and plenty of it. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the surroundings are lovely. Will definitely be going back!

Currently staying in The Bell for work purposes. It's a very friendly place with great rooms, great food, great beer and great staff....so much that I'm rebooking for various stays over the coming months. Well done to The Bell and all the staff. Can't recommend this place enough.

I stayed here for one night. I entered the hotel quite late via the bar. There were a few locals in who seemed somewhat surprised to see a stranger enter! The barman sorted me out by taking me to my room which was across the courtyard where I had parked my car. The room was in an annex and was...
