Activities in Kennett Village

Web Feedback

This page is to document activities that are taking place in the village and a sub page will be raised for each activity as we become aware of them. This is typified by the Car Boot sales which are organised to run each year,  information on them can be obtained by clicking on the menu item at the top of this page.


If you would like to have a page to advertise an activity you are running in thew village and you would like the residents to become aware of then click on the Web Page Feedback Form button at the top of this page and outline your requirements. If you do not want to have to manage your own page then you can send the details of your event on  Web Page Feedback Form and I will do my best to add a page for you.

About us and a little history

David, Sheena & Philip would like to welcome you to The Bell Inn at Kennett.

A Brief History.Sheena's parents Geoff & Diana Smith were Licensees of the Bell in From 1992 and sold the Freehold in 1997.

In January 2011 After 14 years of neglect it was returned to the open market with the building being in a very sorry state of repair. After a 3 Month refurbishment including a total revamp of the kitchen facilities we opened the doors on 2nd July 2011. We have tried to return the building and bars to its original state as far as possible to show off the old beams and fireplaces.

The Bell, An Early 16th Century Coaching Inn, was reputably a Frequent Haunt of Highwayman Dick Turpin. A visiting Medium in 2004 told of a total of 4 ghosts that haunt the pub. An Artist who hangs around in the Old Snug area, One in the Old Kitchen area & a Mother & Son who haunt the upper part of the building.

As a family who have resided here on two separate occasions over the years we can confirm to those of you interested that there is defiantly a presence felt on occasions in certain areas of the building. We have had several "experiences". Britain's most Haunted visited the Inn during 2004 when it was Brewery owned.

We run regular events and music tribute nights and to find out more about these please look at the "Whats On" section of our website.

We hope you enjoy your visit,

     David, Sheena & Philip
