The Bellhouse was built as a hunting lodge around the 16th century. It took its name from being surrounded by dense woodland and from the hourly “dong” of its bell, as it was a directional guide to hunters and travelling folk. From the 13th Century the English kings would often visit the district for hunting, making Hadleigh castle their residence. Henry VIII was the last English King to have hunted here and is known to have frequently visited The Bellhouse. For more information on our history please visit our about us page.
Anne Boleyn, daughter of Lord Rochford, is reputed to haunt The Bellhouse, where she is said to have slept whilst awaiting King Henry VIII to visit her after hunting.
