About The Bell Inn

The Bell Inn is a characterful pub and B&B situated on the edge of the Cotswolds in Ducklington, set in a pre-13th century building, complete with thatched roof and open fires.

Each of the four bedrooms has been recently renovated. All rooms benefit from en-suite facilities and include Freeview TV, free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee-making facilities and ironing facilities. A hairdryer is also available upon request.

The Bell Inn regularly holds fundraising events for local causes and charities. There is a pool table, satellite TV and "hook the ring on the horn" game in the lounge area for guests to use and enjoy.

The quaint restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a changing specials board. The restaurant is also an ideal venue for parties and functions. A fully-stocked bar is also available.

The historic town of Witney is conveniently within walking distance.
