The Bell Inn is an 18th century coaching Inn nestled in the heart of the New Forest oozing rustic charm and characterful interiors. Its oak and flag stoned floors show off its traditional history and cosy country style, while the heart of the Inn is its double-sided fireplace where locals meet to enjoy the best of the New Forest. Guests are encouraged to soak up the surroundings and sink into sofas whilst sampling one of our fine local ales with man’s best friend curled up at your feet.
Our vibrant bar and award winning restaurant serve locally sourced food from nature’s larger, right on our door step. The 28 elegant and individually themed rooms, blend original features with contemporary touches and ensure a perfect night’s sleep. There’s even the opportunity to play a round of golf on either of our two golf courses. With over 90,000 acres of national park to explore, this really is the perfect country hideaway, while still ideally situated just a mile away from J1 of the M27, we look forward to welcoming you to this relaxing and breathtaking part of the world.
We look forward to welcoming you and all the family …
