About The Bell

Our iconic building is a former 15th century coaching inn, famed for being one of the finest rest stops on the A1 and is as comfortable and elegant today as it was in its coaching heyday.

Whether you are looking for a welcoming place to spend the night or would simply like to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat surrounded by friendly faces, The Bell is perfectly placed, right in the centre of the historic village of Stilton. It has its own car park, offers all-day dining, an in-house coffee shop, free WiFi and is pet-friendly.

A Fascinating History

__________________________________

The Bell Inn dates back to 1500 (though its origins could

be even earlier, as there is a record of a local innkeeper in

1437). From 1500 to 1515 Edward Tebald and his wife Alice

owned The Bell. We know that their daughter Margaret and

her husband William Redehede sued her parent’s tenant

for possession, but little else from those early days.
