As the winter chill settles over Suffolk, the county, which boasts stunning coastline and historical charm, offers an escape from the chaos of daily life. Walking distance from the trainline, and a short hop to the beautiful coast, The Bell Hotel makes a perfect base to completely unwind this January. With soothing and picture-perfect landscapes, quaint villages and wonderful local walks on its doorstep, take in the crisp winter air and return to relax by the fire.

If you’re into history, then look no further. There are several stunning historic landmarks, including the world-famous Sutton Hoo, alongside ancient churches to timber-framed buildings. Wander through the historic streets of nearby towns, discovering the timeless charm. While The Bell isn’t directly by the coast, its convenient location near a train station makes it easily accessible for those seeking a winter escape.

Nestled in the heart of Suffolk, The Bell welcomes you with boutique surroundings and five-star personalised service. Experience the warmth of its interiors, thoughtfully designed to create a cosy atmosphere.  We’re proud to be rated five-star on TripAdvisor, alongside highly acclaimed partner travel sites, and have been rated as ‘one of the hottest new hotels’ by The Independent.

Our Head Chef, Anthony O’Farrell, and his team, look forward to welcoming you to the Heath restaurant at The Bell, which proudly boasts a stunning menu serving the finest and most local produce, including Blythburgh pork and Darsham beef, alongside produce from local farms and suppliers. We have bar menu options, for those looking for an informal bite, or our highly acclaimed a la carte menu, which changes to reflect the availability of ingredients.

Don’t just believe what we say

Planning a getaway involves trust, and The Bell stands proudly with its exceptional ratings on platforms like TripAdvisor, we recently featured in The East Anglian Daily Times, further putting our five-star rated premises on the map for locals and tourists alike.

““A great night, thank you

The staff could not do enough for us. They catered for my partner’s allergies and made incredible recommendations and tailored our meal for him. The food was (as always) freshly cooked, served professionally and really really good. We felt like we were experiencing five star dining in a cosy country setting. We will be back.”

Fantastic hotel and food

We walked in and were met by super friendly staff who checked us in quickly and took us to our room. The room was beautiful, spacious and clean.

Once settled we went to the bar and had a drink and booked a table for dinner. My partner had steak which I am always nervous about as he is really fussy but it was perfectly cooked and cut like butter, he loved it. I had the fish and chips which was really nice, lovely crispy cod in batter.

The staff are attentive and friendly in every part of the hotel.

We would highly recommend this hotel for a stay or just a drink or meal as it was a truly wonderful experience.”
