Our Inn Exclusively Yours for the Day


The Bell Inn is an authentic 18th-century coaching Inn, full of rustic charm and original features that humbly mix tradition with a contemporary style, with a surprisingly large amount of rooms (28 to be exact!). Among roaming ponies, pigs and picture-perfect thatched cottages, our unique Inn provides a wonderful setting for you to create your own special day nestled in the heart of the New Forest National Park. Just one mile away from the M27 (junction one) and mainline stations, with direct routes to London, just 15-20 minutes away.

We’re licensed for civil partnerships in not one, but two rooms, giving you a choice of where to say ‘I do’, both ideal for the more intimate wedding and all at extraordinarily good value! You can even choose to have the privacy of your own Inn for the day with our exclusively yours package.

We love a wedding here at The Bell Inn and we’ll enjoy looking after you. In fact, we’ve hosted rather a few weddings, so you’ll benefit from our in-depth knowledge and expertise, as well as a small
close-knit, friendly team to give you a very personable experience.

Whether your New Forest wedding is a small, private affair or a large, lavish party with a marquee in the garden for al fresco celebrations, we will work with you so you can hitched, without a hitch – we really are one of the most versatile wedding venues in Hampshire.
