Welcome to The Bell Inn, which has been part of my family since 1782. Inside we have made stylish updates to our historic New Forest hotel without spoiling any of its traditional and rustic charm. With open fireplaces, flagstone floors, elegant reception rooms and two superb 18-hole golf courses we are unlike other hotels in Hampshire.

Our team of talented chefs create seasonal specials and mouth-watering menus, and with nature’s larder on the doorstep you will enjoy an authentic New Forest dining experience.

Whether staying in one of our 28 tasteful rooms, enjoying local ale whilst relaxing on comfortable sofas in our dog friendly bar, dining with us exploring the flavours of the New Forest or playing a round of golf on New Forest Hotel’s oldest course, we look forward to welcoming you to this timeless and magical place.
