The Bell Inn is a lovely country pub full of charm. The joint proprietor Amy is very hard working and cannot do enough to help customers. The accommodation is first class in a converted stable 25 yards from the actual pub. The rooms are of a very high standard, immaculate, spotlessly clean and full of all mod con's and even safes in each room. The 'locals' make you feel most welcome in their pub, which is nice.This pub is ideally located for visiting Rye, Rye Harbour, Bodiam Castle, Peasmarsh, Battle Abby, Tenterdon, Appledon, Camber & Hastings. There is a very friendly dog called Dexter, who is no problem whats-so-ever and ample free parking. The village of Iden has a wonderful Norman church & a quaint village shop. (that's about all really). The only adverse comment I have is that the breakfast was rather sparse, to say the least. However my wife and I would love to stay at the Bell again and would definately recommend friends to do so. This is a really great 'B & B'.
