Cruise and Stay

Ideally situated just 1 mile from Junction 1 of the M27 (just 20 mins by car from the Southampton Cruise Terminal), 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 flagstoned 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 sample 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 and fine wines on offer. Our bar and award-winning restaurant serve locally sourced food from nature’s larder, right on our doorstep. The 28 elegant and individually themed rooms, blend original features with contemporary touches and guarantee a night of perfect slumber.

The Hotel is also within easy reach of all the Hampshire and New Forest attractions, including The Mayflower Theatre, Beaulieu & The National Motor Museum, Christmas Markets, Marwell Wildlife Zoo, Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium, Beaulieu, New Forest National Park and of course Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park. For the best in retail therapy, why not visit West Quay, which is only a short drive from the Hotel offering major stores such as IKEA, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer.

We also benefit from having two onsite golf courses one of which is the oldest in Hampshire, the roaming ponies and deer add to the charm of our Forest Course, and many prefer to play it for its beauty and old-fashioned test of golfing skills. The prospect of a deer emerging from the trees or a mare and her foal on the fairway gives the Forest Course a special and unique appeal.

Once you return from your voyage, take your time returning home and relax with us for the evening, or kick start your trip with a full English Breakfast in the morning before you start the final leg of your journey home. Full English Breakfast is £15.95 per person (from 7-9.30 Mon-Fri, 7.30-10 Sat & Sun)

The Bell Inn is the perfect start and finish to any break away…
