I am very proud of this beautiful old Inn, which has been in my family for over 250 years. Located in the heart of the New Forest, the Bell Inn is an enchanting place to stay, steeped in history and rustic charm, which provides a warm welcome as well as a stylish place to stay.

Step inside and you’ll find an Inn rooted in tradition with open fireplaces, flagstone floors, elegant lounges and a comfortable bar for everyone to meet up and enjoy.

Our team of talented chefs are busy creating fabulous, seasonal food with local ingredients and delicious game coming directly from the family estate.

Whether staying in one of our 27 tasteful rooms, enjoying local ale whilst relaxing on one of our comfortable sofas with your dog, or dining with us exploring the flavours of the New Forest, we look forward to welcoming you to this timeless and magical place.
