Our favourite rooms
All Bells’ boudoirs are set away from the Manor House amid eight acres of pretty English-style gardens, secluded from the gastronomic bustle of the restaurant. For maximum privacy, a super-deep free-standing bath tub and a lake-surveying balcony, opt for a Lakeview Villa.
The shimmering turquoise swimming pool is flanked by sun-loungers and umbrellas.
Marcos-loads of shoes: loafers for lunch, flipflops for the beach, walking shoes for the National Park trails.
Food-lovers, get your gourmet on with a cooking class (bi-monthly) and garden tour (offered daily), or attend one of the hotel's monthly wine dinners.
Bells’ accommodation is best for grown-ups, but kids over 13 are welcome.
Food waste is recycled for the 50 chickens that call Bells home; there's an organic kitchen garden that services the restaurant and tank water is used outside.
