Say I do in the New Forest

A Wedding with Rustic Charm

Set with a backdrop of the incredible New Forest National Park, our charming 18th Century coaching inn creates the atmosphere for you to add all the personal touches to make your day a truly memorable occasion. Our weddings team at The Bell Inn New Forest will guide you throughout your wedding planning process. Whether you are looking for a relaxed family occasion or a show stopping party, The Bell Inn can accommodate every request.

The Bell Inn looks glorious at anytime of the year. Our Head Chef creates wonderful seasonal menus filled with local produce. The grounds and gardens which are maintained by our dedicated team reflect the changing seasons of the New Forest. The winter months offer a cosy feeling with inglenook fireplaces roaring and comfy sofas to sink into. Whilst in the summer make the most of the Garden Room that opens up onto our beautiful garden. This light and airy space can be used for your ceremony and wedding breakfast.

Why not make the most of the outside space and have your ceremony in the Garden. We have many locations for photographs, with access to Bramshaw Golf Course for endless photo opportunities or the rose archway in The Bell Inn Garden. Do not forget that all important group photograph.

All year round the Inn is full of charm and character, standing out as the perfect country setting for the wedding of your dreams.
