Situated in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire, The Bell at Skenfrith’s, a former 17th century welsh coaching inn and now one of Wales's renowned boutique hotels, was completely restored in 2001.  Carefully and thoughtfully decorated, the polished flagstone floors, oak beams and antique furniture, coupled with contemporary comfy sofas and chairs, give The Bell its relaxing and easy atmosphere. There are eleven individually designed bedrooms, all with bathrooms ensuite. 

Overlooking the river Monnow, The Bell is on the outskirts of the tiny welsh village of Skenfrith.  With an award-winning restaurant and wine list.  It is the ideal place for intimate weddings (we have our own marquee which can be tailored to your requirements) or special anniveraries/celebrations, quiet and romantic breaks, country pursuits and wonderful, long walks around this beautiful county.  The Bell has free wifi but don't expect your mobile to always work.

The Bell is famous for its six individual circular walks which guide the walker in and around the Skenfrith area; at times crossing over the border into england and back!  Another is The Skenfrith Sleuth which is extremely popular Children's Walk that enables them to search for clues about the history of Skenfrith Castle - one of the famous Marches castles and an important norman stronghold during the 13th century cross-border skirmishes, the local, medieval church St. Bridget's, and nearby Skenfrith village.  This is an ideal activity for the family at half- term or during the school holidays.  There is also an interesting History Tour of Skenfrith Village, details of which can be found at reception.

Whatever your reason for visiting, we will always welcome you to The Bell and help to make your visit a memorable one.
