This hotel is over 250 years old. It's remarkable to consider that during those 250+ years it's past and present owners have totally failed to renovate it's superb character out of existence. I'm old enough to remember when all hotels were like this (or seemed to be). Sadly, most are gone now. The Bell Hotel has proudly preserved it's history....

The Bell is 250 years old and the decor in the public areas is testament to this. We enjoyed Capuchinno, with scones and jam £1.95, but more importantly delicious. It so happened that this was market day, Thursday, and it was wall to wall people. We were staying for several days as we searched for a new home. The staff...

Having been a coach house since the 1700's the bell has a wealth of character. And reminds one of an old fashioned pub, the way a pub should be. The smell of centuries old beer and cigars, people and horses, food, wine and wood blends into an amazing aroma that beats any modern air conditioning..creaky floorboards, doors and windows. That...

Come to the Bell so often over the last few years for family get togethers but tonight was really disappointing. Came for a meal with my partner, my mum, dad and my grandma. We waited about half an hour to be served drinks as the bar was busy it being a Saturday night and a pre-booked party was in but...

My hubby and I stayed for 1 night. We had a lovely room with a nice big bathroom. It was nice to have a full size tv and 2 arm chairs we could move to watch it, rather than having to sit on the bed. The breakfast the next morning was very generous and we'll cooked.
