No.1 Abbey Row

No.1 Abbey Row comprises the historic north wing of the Old Bell Hotel.

Your guests will enter through their own private entrance, a roaring fire on their left and a glass of something bubbly on their right. You can even hold your ceremony indoors or outdoors - we are licensed for both.

You will have the north wing of the hotel completely at your disposal with well appointed bedrooms, your own bar, our new Garden Room venue, the Elmers and Hobbs Rooms and our private terrace. Your guests can also take a break from the party in your own walled garden.

The Garden Room

From there they can proceed through the bars into the Garden Room where the festivities will begin in earnest.

The Garden Room has been recently refurbished and can accommodate up to 60 guests. Our planning team will help you to arrange and decorate the space as you see fit for your big day.



The Gardens and Terrace

You’ll have exclusive access to our Gardens and your own private Terrace for your guests to take a break from the festivities or mingle outdoors in the Cotswold countryside.

Our Belvedere at the end of the Gardens can host your outdoor ceremony.

The Old Bell Hotel

No.1 Abbey Row is hosted by the Old Bell Hotel, a renowned country house hotel situated in the market town of Malmesbury, just on the doorstep of the Cotswolds.

The Old Bell has been recently refurbished to the highest standards and is pleased to be able to offer the exclusive use of No.1 Abbey Row to you for your celebrations.
