A charming home from home in a traditional East Sussex village setting, including breakfast and the choice between a room or a spacious and romantic wood-built lodge

This is how you do rustic-chic. Situated in a charming village in the heart of rural East Sussex, The Bell in Ticehurst is an old coaching inn reborn as an utterly original hotel and restaurant. Rather than streamlining one particular school of design, the concept here is delightfully eclectic; a muddle of country game fair, vintage Victoriana and modern dandy. In fact, The Bell has scooped up much praise from Condé Nast Traveller, The Times, Tatler and more, as well as a Best Gastropub title at Aquisition International Magazine's Global Excellence Awards 2017, and this year, a Four Star Gold Inn accreditation from the AA Guide.

The bedrooms and lodges are individually styled, some with freestanding copper tubs, some with exposed brick walls; all with authentically scuffed hardwood floors. Comfort is paramount, with handmade Somnus mattresses and luxury bedding, as well as chic en-suite bathrooms that you may well be tempted to sleep in. Not just an interesting place to crash, The Bell in Ticehurst serves fine ales and features an acclaimed restaurant (the National Pub & Bar Awards named it South East Pub of the Year 2017).
