....... . ... "A huge thank you to the wonderful Tunnels Beaches team for making our wedding day just fantastic!

....... . ... All our guests commented on what a spectacular venue Tunnels is, the fabulous (and large volumes) of food and friendly, helpful
....... . ... staff. We had the maximum of 120 guests and a pretty wet day which isn't what we had in mind but this was no problem at all
....... . ... for the team or venue. Everything was just seamless.

....... . ... We tried our best to keep everything local and couldn't have wished for better with our gorgeous flowers from Offshore Blooms,
....... . ... Matt Fryer our fun and talented photographer, Pat McIntyre on his guitar set just the vibe we wanted for post ceremony drinks
....... . ... and Paul aka The Wedding Spinner kept the dance floor bouncing all night. We even got our cake from The Deli, Ilfracombe
....... . ... and favours from Roly's fudge on the Quay in town. Both were yummy.

....... . ... We live overseas and thought planning a wedding in the UK might be a bit of a nightmare. Not the case, everyone we dealt with
....... . ... made it easy and fun. We want to come back and do it all again!"

....... . ... "Now that the dust has settled after our wedding last Monday we both just wanted to tell you all how grateful you are for all
....... . ... that you did for us.

....... . ... Your supplier suggestions were spot on, we would never have found such a brilliant DJ such as The Wedding Spinner (Paul was
....... . ... just perfect!) the cake company (Nibble & Scoff) who delivered to you the most beautiful cupcakes I have ever seen, and our
....... . ... florist (Pumpkin & Pye) who gave us the most delicate and stunning floral display ever. Light bulbs - who knew?!?

....... . ... Our wedding was flawless, the food was incredible, (really really incredible - I've never seen my family eat so much!) and all
....... . ... of your staff were so friendly and efficient right through from Tom who suggested how we both walked down to the gazebo,
....... . ... to Catherine for her dedication to making my singing and seating plan work to Tanya for answering hundreds of emails to
....... . ... Jacs who calmed me down as I was about to walk down the aisle.

....... . ... The rest were just fantastic; moving everything seamlessly, reassuring us before, during & after the ceremony and just generally
....... . ... giving us the very best day of our lives.

....... . ... It was even better than we thought it could possibly be and we even if I sent you a thank you email every day for the rest of my
....... . ... life it still would not convey our gratitude. Thank you so much!!"

....... . ... "Just a quick note of thanks for the most amazing day of our lives on the 16th July!...

....... . ... From the very beginning you were all on hand to help us, answer many questions and fit us in for visits when we couldn’t make
....... . ... the open day. We really appreciate everything you did and we were so impressed with the way the day was run and how easy you
....... . ... made everything. Special thanks to the staff for setting up the ceremony chairs outside in the rain on the morning of the wedding
....... . ... in case the weather changed (which it did!). It is the most incredible location and so many people commented on the scenery, the
....... . ... food and the venue.

....... . ... The food was incredible, the bar staff were excellent, everything was brilliant and we had an amazing day. You all made it really
....... . ... special – thanks again, just a shame we can’t do it all over again."

....... . ... "I want to get married in shorts and flip flops" he said. So research began and led us very quickly to this amazing venue...

....... . ... Our day was outstanding, from the venue itself, to the amazing staff and food of such high quality. You just feel like you don’t have
....... . ... a care in the world, as it all seamlessly happens around you and you don’t have to think about anything other than your day with
....... . ... friends and family.

....... . ... Clearly this level of ‘secret service’ is due to the fantastic team work from all involved with the Tunnels, from visiting the venue
....... . ... and booking the big day, to the day itself. Every one of the Tunnels team should feel immensely proud of the part they play, thank
....... . ... you all so much!

....... . ... The FAQs section on the website is so useful, as not living close by, the recommendations are invaluable. Paul, The Wedding Spinner,
....... . ... was truly the best DJ we have ever had the privilege of knowing, catering for all our musical tastes from the children to the 70+ year
....... . ... old’s. He certainly managed to keep me on the dance floor for 6 hours, had to wear off the BBQ somehow! Kelly from Offshore Blooms
....... . ... did the flowers, again, although I never met Kelly before the day, having talked to her by phone and then a couple of emails, my
....... . ... flowers were absolutely perfect. Thank you to both Paul and Kelly as well for their part in our celebrations.

....... . ... You can never replicate a day in life ever and even if we could we wouldn’t change any part of the day, feel very lucky in life to have
....... . ... been able to get married here and share it with our friends."

....... . ... "We got married at Tunnels Beaches in June and it truly was just the best day ever. I cannot recommend the venue enough
....... . ... (photos just don't do it justice), explain just how tasty the food is (many guests said it was the best wedding food they'd had)
....... . ... or praise the Tunnels team more highly.

....... . ... The majority of our planning was done via email and it was incredibly easy. They were always prompt to respond to all of my
....... . ... random questions and no task was too much trouble. They are hugely accommodating and do everything in their power to help
....... . ... create your vision all without it feeling like too much effort. Our day ran so smoothly, we didn't have to worry about a thing.
....... . ... All we had to do was concentrate on having fun in a stunning location!"

....... . ... "What can I say – WOW! Having looked at a number of venues in the South West, the minute we set foot in Tunnels Beaches
....... . ... we knew it would be the perfect venue. The relaxed feel and the opportunity to get married outside by the sea meant it just
....... . ... felt like ‘us’. We were lucky enough to have some glorious sunshine on the day, but even in the drizzle when we first looked
....... . ... round the coastal setting was absolutely stunning and we were hooked.

....... . ... We mostly planned the day from our home in London, and any fears that this would hinder the planning were quickly put to rest
....... . ... by the amazing staff, especially Tanya and Jamie. They have been so helpful, responding to endless emails and questions to help
....... . ... us feel really calm and cared for. The staff were fantastic on the day, always there to assist with any requests but never in our
....... . ... faces.

....... . ... Then there was the food! The barbecue was absolutely divine and so many of our guests have said it was the best wedding food
....... . ... they have ever had. The view of the tide rolling in as we ate was something we definitely won’t forget in a hurry, and as we
....... . ... don’t drink we loved the delicious mocktail that was provided to complement the guests’ sangria in the evening.

....... . ... We sourced most of our suppliers through the Tunnels’ recommended list and were so happy with all our choices. Anna and Elaine
....... . ... from Changing Faces made the girls look absolutely stunning (and really helped to calm Jo’s morning panics), Mark (Evolve)
....... . ... captured the day exactly how we wanted with beautiful photos, and The Wedding Spinner provided the perfect soundtrack,
....... . ... somehow seamlessly mixing our requests for motown, soul, punk, ska and drum and bass - we salute you!

....... . ... From the location, to the food, to the staff, the whole day was absolutely perfect and we would absolutely recommend Tunnels
....... . ... to anyone. Thank you!!"

....... . ... Jacs for managing the proceedings during the day, and also to Catherine for answering our many email queries!

....... . ... To the catering team for our BBQ, the Sea Bass was exceptional and we have heard from many people that this was the best BBQ

....... . ... For anybody reading this, if you are in doubt as to whether or not to book Tunnels Beaches for your wedding day... go ahead...

....... . ... Our guests were blown away by how stunningly beautiful Tunnels Beaches is and we were so lucky to have such a beautiful day
....... . ... with the sun shining all day. Everyone commented how amazing the Gourmet BBQ was - the Sea Bass especially was delicious!

....... . ... "Our search for the perfect wedding venue was a very brief one, we only had to view Tunnels Beaches once before we decided
....... . ... it would be perfect for us. When we visited for the first time it was everything we were looking for, we didn't even look anywhere
....... . ... else! It's hard to properly describe how unique a place it is, but we couldn't imagine a better place to spend our special day.

....... . ... The staff were exceptional throughout the preparation and the big day itself, answering any questions quickly and doing everything
....... . ... they could to make it as worry-free as possible, and it made us much more relaxed knowing everything was taken care of. We can't
....... . ... thank them enough for helping make everything run so smoothly!

....... . ... We would absolutely recommend booking Tunnels Beaches, we thought it was perfect on our first viewing, and it blew us away when
....... . ... the day finally came. A massive thank you to everybody involved who helped make our day magical and perfect in every way!"

....... . ...
....... . ... "Our fairy tale with Tunnels Beaches began 2 years before our wedding day. Both having a love of the sea, we initially wanted
....... . ... to get married in the Caribbean. However, having faced the impossible reality that many of closest loved ones would not be
....... . ... able to share such a special time with us, we began to search possible locations in the UK. We immediately struck upon
....... . ... Tunnels Beaches and we couldn’t wait to arrange a visit to see this spectacular location. Living in Kent meant that we would
....... . ... have to wait a month before visiting; wondering all the while if the photos online could possibly be a genuine portrayal of the
....... . ... venue itself. We were not disappointed. Emerging through the tunnel on a cloudy, blustery May day, the view literally took our
....... . ... breath away and we are not afraid to admit brought a little tear to the eye. Immediately, we booked our wedding day and from
....... . ... then on could not stop thinking about this magical place.

....... . ... Since the initial booking, the Tunnels Beaches family never let us down. Their recommendation of suppliers was spot on.
....... . ... The food was AMAZING – the white chocolate cheesecake went down especially well!

....... . ... To say the admin in the build-up to our day was efficient is an understatement which completely contributed to the relaxed
....... . ... approach we wanted to take. Thank you to all the staff who worked so effortlessly on the day and to Jamie and Zoe for creating
....... . ... the Tunnels Beaches dream.

....... . ... We will definitely be visiting in the future. Thank you a million times over!"

....... . ... All of our guests raved about the food, it was absolutely fantastic – we wished we could have eaten the lot!

....... . ... "Louis and I fell in love with Tunnels Beaches the minute we first stepped onto the terrace. It is the most stunning, dramatic,
....... . ... beautiful and breath-taking place, and the most incredible venue for a wedding that you will remember with the fondest
....... . ... memories, and biggest smiles, forever.

....... . ... Over the ensuing 11 months, the team couldn’t have been more helpful in assisting us to arrange our special day – Tanya and
....... . ... Jacs were brilliant.

....... . ... On our BIG day, the weather was just perfect for early May, I met with Jacs and Tanya on the morning of the wedding to run
....... . ... through the plans for the day, and update them on all the final little details – then I left them to it, confident that our wedding
....... . ... would be all we had dreamed it would be.

....... . ... We enjoyed an emotion filled day, surrounded by friends and family. We got married on the terrace, had photos on the beach,
....... . ... enjoyed an absolutely delicious wedding breakfast (massive compliments to the Chef – yummy!!), and escaped for quiet moments
....... . ... on the roof terrace from where you get the most spectacular view across your wedding, the beach, cliffs and sea. As the sun set,
....... . ... the sky was filled with yellow, orange, mauve and grey – it was truly awesome. We had a campfire, s’mores, sparklers and danced
....... . ... the night away.

....... . ... So many of our guests have said what an amazing day it was, how incredible the venue is, how tasty the fantastic variety of food
....... . ... was, and how they have never been to a wedding like it.

....... . ... Tunnels Beaches is truly the most perfect place we could have chosen for our wedding – professional, wonderful, and with a backdrop
....... . ... that will mesmerise you – whatever the weather. We have most definitely got a little piece of Ilfracombe in our hearts forever, and
....... . ... can’t wait to come back and visit."

....... . ... Everyone commented on the food so massive thanks to the Chefs... the Monkfish skewers, Sea Bass and BBQ Lamb were quite
....... . ... honestly the talk of the wedding ever since and as a Chef myself the reaction was so crazy but so well deserved.

....... . ... The venue with its new extension was so beautiful and with so many of my guests, Dean and I coming from hospitality and mostly

....... . ... "Whoa...the Tunnels Beaches is the most perfect wedding location and will recommend to anyone who listens – we even had
....... . ... a couple of bridesmaids gutted they didn’t find this place first! The renovations really have made a difference to the venue
....... . ... and created so much more space. It really is a beautiful place.

....... . ... This was our first venue we looked at for our wedding and even on the wet and windy January day, we knew we had found our
....... . ... place. If we could love this place in such miserable conditions, things could only get better!

....... . ... The staff, throughout the planning process, were brilliant. They were happy to answer any silly/stupid/random questions that
....... . ... we had and quickly too. Living in Bedfordshire, our visits were limited to just twice but both times we were put at ease and
....... . ... nothing was too much trouble.

....... . ... Our wedding day started so well with the weather that we prepared for an outside ceremony – unfortunately this didn’t stay

....... . ... umbrellas and it wasn’t a problem for anyone! Everything happened so seamlessly – the music, the timings and the drinks
....... . ... ready for us when walked back up the aisle as husband and wife! Your attention to detail, professionalism and efficiency
....... . ... is what made this day perfect and meant we could enjoy the day and not worry about the small things – you guys really know
....... . ... how to run a wedding!

....... . ... The food….whoa….all the guests have raved about the Gourmet BBQ. It was cooked to perfection and we certainly didn’t
....... . ... take advantage of going back for more but we know others did. There is so much choice on the menu that we found this the
....... . ... hardest thing of all to chose from. If we could have it all – we probably would have done!

....... . ... It was a beautiful day. We were surround by close family and friends and wouldn’t have changed things for the world. Our
....... . ... guests have all raved about the location, breathtaking views and your amazing staff. We thank you and in particular we want
....... . ... to say a huge massive thank you to Jacs for all your help and support– we sure did have you running around!

....... . ... Our recommendation to anyone considering Tunnels Beaches – stop looking and just book it!

"We would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone at Tunnels Beach for making our day so perfect. We viewed
....... . ... Tunnels Beaches on a really stormy day and still knew straight away it was the venue for us. We love being by the sea so
....... . ... knew we would enjoy our day there come rain or shine. Even in late October we were able to have our ceremony outside,
....... . ... with a really mild day, saying our vows with the sound of waves in the background made it even more special.

....... . ... All our friends and family raved about how stunning and unique the venue was and the staff really were amazing. From start
....... . ... to finish the tunnels team took care of everything and made the day run super smoothly, they calmed our nerves the day
....... . ... before and helped us set the schedule for the day, making excellent suggestions. The chief helped us make last minute menu
....... . ... adjustments to cater for all dietary requirements. The staff made on the spot decisions during the day such as controlling the
....... . ... music, clearing tables, providing drinks, suggesting when to cut the cake, light the fire etc. We were never stressed as we
....... . ... knew they had everything covered, we were able to just relax and enjoy the day and catch up with our guests.

....... . ... Tunnels couldn’t have been more professional and approachable, we were so impressed. Best day ever!!"

"Louise and I first heard about Tunnels Beaches from seeing the photographs of a friend's wedding. We knew the location suited
....... . ... the relaxed and picturesque wedding we wanted, and the moment we visited the venue and spoke to the manager we knew it
....... . ... was perfect. Living in Cheltenham we arranged two further visits to the venue in order to discuss options and cement plans in
....... . ... our minds. On both occasions we were met by a manager and were put completely at ease. This really quelled any worries we
....... . ... might have otherwise had organising a wedding so far from home.

....... . ... On the day we found ourselves very lucky with weather, for the entirety of our wedding day the sun shone brightly and warmly.
....... . ... It was as if somebody knew how important this day was to us! The bridal party prepared themselves at a local venue whilst my
....... . ... family, groomsmen and I decorated the venue with the brilliant assistance of the morning staff, and within a couple of hours
....... . ... it was exactly as my wife had requested.

....... . ... The ceremony went beautifully, and everything that I had arranged seemed to happen in the background without my needing to
....... . ... coordinate it. This allowed us to fully enjoy the day and the special occasion with our family and friends. I am not quite sure why
....... . ... this surprised me so much - after all the staff and management are experts at running weddings, but their efficiency and
....... . ... professionalism impressed me more than I can adequately describe.

....... . ... The gourmet BBQ was simply fantastic and countless guests commented on how it was the best food they had tasted at a wedding,
....... . ... and the fire pit being lit in the evening impressed many a guest too.

....... . ... I appreciate that it's a cliche to say that your wedding day is the best day of your life, but for Louise and I this is true. We were
....... . ... surrounded by our closest friends and family, in a breathtaking location, and the day went so smoothly and beautifully we would
....... . ... not change a single thing.

....... . ... My only advice to potential couples considering Tunnels Beaches as a wedding venue is to forget the competition and book...
....... . ... Your wedding will stand out from the crowd and be loved by everybody."

....... . ... "Having selected about 5 different wedding venues close to the ocean or waters edge we decided to visit them all as weekend
....... . ... breaks. Tunnels beaches was the first, and after spending 5 minutes at the venue we booked on the spot! It was exactly what
....... . ... we were looking for, relaxed, focused professional with stunning views out over the sea.

....... . ... We also booked the Bath house, a restored 9 bedroom Victorian bath house just in front of the Tunnels which in itself was
....... . ... a master stroke. It seemed expensive at first but when you split it down it cost about the same as an average guest house,
....... . ... but there is nothing average about this place! 9 double en-suite rooms, all lockable and private with two separate chill areas
....... . ... and a stunning ultra modern kitchen! It's a wedding photographers paradise! The wifi at the Bath House and Tunnels venue
....... . ... was super fast and enabled us to just set our own playlist on Spotify and play it through the day and evening.

....... . ... On the day the venue was dressed by our fantastic florist Carole from Charlie's Florist, who captured our ideas perfectly, and
....... . ... the live music from Roger Styles who was absolutely awesome, if we were asked how we found him once, we were asked 100
....... . ... times!

....... . ... We went for the drinks package with the ice filled gunk tank with Pimms, beers and cider & canapés after the ceremony. We
....... . ... also opted for the Gourmet BBQ which was absolutely fantastic. The ice cream bike was a hit with children and adults alike,
....... . ... as were the bacon baps and wedges late into the evening.

....... . ... Lastly I need to mention the staff. From the chef, to the bar staff, those who served canapés, supervisors and management.
....... . ... To name anybody would be a travesty to the rest, you were all more than fantastic, you were brilliant. I cannot wax lyrical
....... . ... enough. You made our special day fabulous without seeming to break into a sweat."

....... . ... "We would like to thank Tunnels Beaches for enabling us to have the most amazing wedding day. Photos can not do the venue
....... . ... justice as the view and setting is just incredible, with the staff going out of there way to make the day run smoothly. A key
....... . ... example of this was the bar staff sneaking the groom a couple of shots before it was time to make his speech! The staff were
....... . ... flexible as to how we wanted the day to run, allowing us to make changes last minute, which was fantastic with the unpredictable
....... . ... British weather. Our photographer Matt Fryer, also helped with this, talking us through the running and communicating what we
....... . ... wanted with Tunnels staff.

....... . ... Despite the rain during our ceremony, we were able to decide last minute as it slowed to a drizzle, that we wanted to go ahead
....... . ... and get married outside. The rain did not put a dampner on our day and the sun came out as soon as we were married! We chose
....... . ... to eat inside, where the view is still amazing, we had about 80 guests and it made for a lovely and intimate wedding breakfast.
....... . ... We were worried beforehand about the amount of food, however we could have fed everyone twice! The food was delicious and
....... . ... people are still talking about the Salmon.

....... . ... As a venue, you couldn’t imagine anywhere more atmospheric to get married. The sound of the waves on the beach, the amazing
....... . ... scenery and the salty smell on the air create such an amazing experience for the senses. With great food, great company and
....... . ... great weather, Tunnels genuinely is leaps and bounds ahead of anywhere else.

....... . ... From the first moment, the entire staff were absolutely 100%. Throughout the preparation and the whole day, the team were able
....... . ... to offer help and advice, making our day run as smooth as butter. Their experience speaks volumes, and the ability to amend
....... . ... plans on the fly depending on external sources is amazing. The team have perfected the art of hiding in plain sight too. You never
....... . ... “notice” that they are there, but if you need something, they appear, apparently out of nowhere, to make sure that your celebration
....... . ... is perfect.

....... . ... We booked the gourmet BBQ for our afternoon meal, along with the tapas for evening snacks. Just like everything else about this
....... . ... place, the food was perfect, served perfectly and just served to maintain the 100% score for Tunnels.

....... . ... I genuinely couldn’t recommend Tunnels Beaches any more."

....... . ....didn't have the time to visit immediately, but from the informative website, glowing reviews and stunning photos, we didn't
....... . ....feel the need to see it before we booked.

....... . ....From our first enquiry the Tunnels staff were amazing, responding so quickly to our emails and answering any questions we had
....... . ....- nothing was a problem for them! On the day itself they were even better - we had a mixed bag of weather including a fair bit
....... . ....of rain, but due to their organisation and flexibility the day ran so smoothly and it really didn't matter! We were unsure until
....... . ....the very last minute where our ceremony was going to be held - luckily the staff were so organised being set up both inside and
....... . ....out, and had umbrellas and towels on hand to dry the seats when we decided to go outside. Afterwards they asked if we'd like
....... . ....to bring the bbq (delicious!) forward so that we could enjoy the sunshine that was due to come later, which worked perfectly.

....... . ....For anyone worried about the weather, please don't - you'll have the best day regardless, we had rain during our ceremony and
....... . ....looking back we wouldn't change this - it made it even more atmospheric with the umbrellas and so special when the sun came
....... . ....out and gave us an amazing sunset.

....... . ....They are so good at what they do at Tunnels, we didn't have to worry about a thing and could just relax and fully enjoy the day

....... . ... Fast forward to May 2016 and our wedding day finally arrived. It’s difficult to find the exact words to describe it, but ‘perfect’,

....... . ... We’ve had so many lovely comments from our guests, with many telling us how delicious the food was and how much it felt like

....... . ... our internet search, we thought 'bingo' this is the perfect venue for our special day, it had everything we wanted and more.

....... . ... Throughout planning and on the day, the team at Tunnels were brilliant, always quick to reply to our questions and so
....... . ... accommodating to our every need, (sorry to single one person out but a special thanks to Jackie) the whole team are dedicated
....... . ... and worked so hard throughout our weekend of celebrations.

....... . ... Tunnels beaches provided the perfect back drop for our day, creating the perfect chilled out atmosphere that we had hoped for,
....... . ... all guests were mesmerised by the location and had a day of love, laughter and fun, memories that will be cherished by all, for
....... . ... years to come. All our guests commented on how delicious the food was throughout the day yum yum...

....... . ... Wanting to make a weekend of it we utilised Bath House, this was an ideal location, providing a central hub for family and friends.

....... . ... We can not thank each and every one of the Tunnels Beaches team enough, for all their hard work and dedication for making
....... . ... our wedding day/weekend a spectacular and special occasion."

....... . ... "We couldn’t have asked for more from the whole Tunnels Beaches team both on the day and during the weekend we spent
....... . ... at the Bath House. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating, putting our wedding nerves at ease. We wanted
....... . ... a relaxed and informal atmosphere and that is what we got, thanks to the staff making sure everything ran smoothly from
....... . ... behind the scenes. From setting up the tables, ensuring no ones glass was empty to making sure our music choices were
....... . ... played at the right points through the day.

....... . ... The weather was very changeable on the wedding day and we literary left it to the last few minutes before deciding whether
....... . ... to have the ceremony inside or out. Our best men informed us the staff were brilliant planning for both options before we
....... . ... arrived so the choice was with us. I’d like to reassure any potential couples that an indoor ceremony is just as spectacular,
....... . ... having the sliding doors open brings the sounds and an elevated view of the sea into the room and our guests could enjoy
....... . ... the ceremony without fear of any sudden downpour.

....... . ... The weather picked up shortly after our ceremony so we were able to make full use of the beautiful outside space for photos
....... . ... and letting the little ones run around for the rest of the day and evening. The food is delicious, fresh and plentiful, our guests
....... . ... loved having a choice and many went back for seconds. The whole weekend was perfect and stress free and we wouldn’t have
....... . ... changed a thing.

....... . ... We really can’t praise the staff and the venue enough!"

........... "What can we say but a massive thank you to the whole Tunnels team for helping make our special day spectacular, fun and
........... memorable in every way.

........... Coming from Devon we knew we had wanted to tie the knot there and found Tunnels Beaches online. We arranged to look around
........... and knew it was the right place for us. We decided on a winter wedding, every question we had was answered in the run up to our
........... wedding and there was never anything that was too much trouble for the team.

........... We stayed in the Bath House - which was a great place to prepare with family and friends the day before the wedding and also to
........... continue celebrations in comfort afterwards. Plenty of space for both parties to get ready in also. The Tunnels team always seem
........... to add little extra special touches and in the Bath House they had put up a Christmas Tree for us, which added to the festive
........... atmosphere. Because it was winter we were lucky in having access to the venue the evening before the wedding - again the team
........... helped with our decorating and went through the rough itinerary of the next day and how we wanted tables set up and decorated,
........... there was just no stress at all.

........... On the day itself we were very fortunate and had a clear day with some sunshine and were able to have the ceremony outside and
........... even the fire pits lit. Everything went smoothly and was so relaxed, truly a day full of laughter, fun and love.

........... The food was just fantastic, plenty of it and tasty (the squid was our favourite). So many guests commented on how incredible the
........... venue was and how tasty the food was.

........... If you are thinking of having your wedding at Tunnels you will not regret it regardless of season or weather. Our guests already want
........... us to plan and book Tunnels again for a renewal of vows!"

........... "The best day of our lives is the only way to describe our wedding day. Tunnels were instrumental in ensuring this was the case.

........... We knew from the start that we wanted to get married near the sea and after viewing a couple of places felt a little disheartened
........... as nothing really matched what we wanted. Luckily, we kept searching and came across Tunnels Beaches online. We thought it
........... looked beautiful and when we visited we fell in love with the location, building, people and well... everything.

........... I should add that we actually viewed it after some horrendous storms had hit and we still loved it, instantly booked it – it was perfect.
........... From this point on all of the Tunnels Team made us feel part of their family and as if our wedding was their one and only priority.
........... Considering the amount of weddings they host throughout the year we thought this was pretty amazing. Organising everything was
........... easy through email/telephone and any questions were answered promptly.

........... Close family and friends stayed at the Bath House with us around the wedding date. This was such a stunning and convenient place
........... for us to stay! Everyone loved it and there is talk of us booking it for a get together in the future.

........... The wedding day itself was just perfect. I cannot express how beautiful the venue is and walking down the aisle and saying your
........... vows with the waves crashing on the shore behind you is like something from a dream.

........... I know everyone’s wedding day is special but this place makes it extraordinary. We were lucky with the weather and even though
........... it was the end of the October had our ceremony outside. The day ran smoothly and the Tunnels staff couldn’t do enough for us.
........... All of the food was delicious – at this venue you don’t do tastings before hand – we now know why – you don’t need to because they
........... know that what they produce is high quality and will exceed your expectations! The staff welcomed and looked after all our guests,
........... ukulele ladies and DJ.

........... The location and staff make Tunnels Beaches an amazing, unique wedding venue. Our family and friends are still talking about it
........... now and they all say they will never forget what an amazing day it was. We can’t thank you all enough for helping make our day
........... so special. Since our wedding day Tunnels have continued to make us feel part of their family by telling us to drop in if we are ever
........... in the area. We can’t recommend Tunnels enough."

........... "Tunnels Beaches by far exceeded all our expectations for our wedding day and we can not thank them enough. We live in Australia
........... and organised it all through email which was made so easy with their helpful and quick responses to any questions. I knew we had
........... made the right decision when I visited the venue for the first time (we had already booked by then) and Josh was so friendly,
........... reassuring and knowledgeable about the whole thing.

........... The venue is just breathtaking and was captured beautifully by our excellent photographer, Rebecca Roundhill. Every detail is covered
........... by all the wonderful staff and on the day the place runs like clockwork. The food was delicious and plentiful with a great variety,
........... including lots of options for vegetarians like me.

........... The staff really did go out of their way to make it the best day possible for us - particular mention has to go to Josh and Jacqui who
........... were absolute stars (including Jacqui dropping everything to find a solution to a dress malfunction of mine - much appreciated!!).
........... They worked well into the night to accommodate us and as we appeared a little worse for wear the next morning, we were greeted
........... with smiles and all our things already packed up neatly ready for collection - I just don't know how they do it!

........... It really was the best day of our lives and many of our friends said it was the best wedding they had been to. Thanks again for everything."

........... The wedding day itself was just perfect. The food was amazing, all of our guests have commented that it was the best food they
........... have ever had at a wedding and the day just flowed so nicely that I didn't feel it went too quick, I think it helps having the ceremony
........... and reception all at the same place. A big thank you to everyone who made our day run so smoothly they were all brilliant and I think

........... "Billed as ‘a day by the seaside with a wedding thrown in for good measure’, Tunnels Beaches provided THE most fabulous backdrop
........... for our perfect day. How can we make our testimonial sound any different to the rest already on here? Well, frankly we can’t!
........... Whilst the photographs of this stunning venue are enough to seduce you in the first instance, nothing can prepare you or your
........... guests for ‘the big reveal’ the first time you walk through the tunnel, it is a sensory feast, the sounds, the smell and the awe
........... of the spectacular scenery. You cannot fail to be impressed. We were incredibly lucky to have sunshine for our September wedding,
........... but fear not; even if you were to have rain at this venue, it would still be incredibly atmospheric.

........... Why this venue works...
........... Less really is more. This venue needs little by way of accessorising, so don’t over-think it. By all means add those personal touches.
........... Jerri Hart crooned away and entertained our guests with his repertoire of swing jazz tunes, shortly followed by our informal and
........... light-hearted ceremony. Most of our guests kicked off their shoes and socks and chilled out on the beach. The children paddled and
........... explored the rock pools with their nets, followed by a treasure hunt, whilst the rest of us played cricket on the beach. Guests feasted
........... upon some fabulous canapés followed by a most delicious gourmet BBQ.

........... In the evening this really is the coolest of venues. The ice-cream cart was provided for those with a sweet tooth. Others opted to
........... toast marshmallows by the open fire, whilst the rest headed for the dance floor for some serious dance offs! Guitarist Richard Keen
........... provided some excellent live entertainment and doubled up as DJ.

........... The Tunnels team...
........... Always super-quick replying to emails, these guys are an incredibly slick and well-oiled machine, if they break out in a sweat
........... you certainly wouldn’t notice as they are so unbelievably chilled and well versed at what they do. Absolutely no need for any
........... micro-managing just let them do what they do best. Hats off to Darren and Josh, no request too big or too small and they
........... immediately put us at ease, infact you come away feeling like you have made new friends! The bar staff and head chef are
........... also worth a mention, it’s a complete team effort and they all made the day completely seamless. Top marks chaps!

........... With 79 guests during the day, the numbers swelled to closer to 100 in the evening. We were incredibly flattered people travelled
........... all the way to Devon, some just for the evening do on a Tuesday. For most of us it was an extended bank holiday weekend, so
........... worked really well.

........... To the Tunnels Beaches team, the verdict, just stunning, we all loved it, people are still talking about what a fabulous time they had.
........... To my husband Paul, you gave me my dream wedding by the sea, thank you."
........... A million thanks, Lisa, Paul & Dominic

........... "We had only been to see one venue before visiting Tunnels Beaches - but after seeing it, we didn't need to look any further. As soon
........... as you walk through the tunnel and see the breathtaking scenery, you will know it's the place to get married! Outside, it's so beautiful
........... and peaceful, and the decorations both outside and inside the venue are perfect. They complement the beach setting while adding all
........... the romantic touches for a wedding, so even simple personal additions will look fantastic!

........... From the outset, Darren, Jamie and Josh were so responsive and accommodating. When it came to the big day and the set-up for the
........... different stages of it, all of the staff made it look effortless and made it happen before you could think about the next step, without
........... ever feeling rushed - they just made the day all flow perfectly!

........... On the day, hearing the sound of the waves and seagulls during our vows was amazing! We had the garden drinks package straight
........... after the vows - sharing a Pimms or beer with family and friends then was so relaxing and felt so different to other wedding receptions.
........... Our guests loved exploring the beach and the rooftop afterwards while we had pictures taken - the backdrop for the pictures is stunning!
........... There was also a beautiful sunset that evening, and we managed to get sunset pictures on the other side of the beach - a few stolen
........... moments away with your other half in such a beautiful place is so special!

........... We had the gourmet BBQ and trio of desserts, the food was absolutely delicious and there was lots of it, we still have guests talking
........... about their favourites from the menu! The sound system is also perfect - we used our iPod and had numbered playlists - again the team
........... at Tunnels had the right music playing at the right time without us even having to think about it! Finally, if like us you wonder what
........... happens if it rains...! We were incredibly lucky in a rain-filled August to have a dry day and a glimmer of sun! However, when you see
........... the upstairs room in the venue which has the same fantastic views, and sliding doors which allow you to still experience the sights and
........... sounds, you will see there's no need to worry!"

........... "We found Tunnels whilst Googling 'Beach Wedding Venues' and could not believe this venue was in Devon. As we have spent many
........... happy times in Devon, we booked a weekend break to check out the venue as we live in Hertfordshire. We saw Tunnels on a grey
........... rainy day and instantly fell in love with the place. We booked our dates and as the date drew closer we decided to book Bath House
........... for 4 nights for our friends and family.

........... Our wedding day….The best day of our lives and the Tunnels team played an instrumental part in this with the low key but excellent
........... organisation throughout the day, leaving us nothing to do but enjoy it. Believe all the reviews they are all true.

........... The food is fantastic and plenty of it. All our guests commented on how nice the food was and it was the best wedding they had ever
........... been to and are still talking about it now. All our guests questioned why we chose to get married in Devon but understood exactly why
........... when they walked through the Tunnel and got their first sight of the amazing views.

........... We wanted a relaxed informal beach wedding which is exactly what we got with the sun shining all day, ending in an amazing sunset.
........... We partied outside all night with people toasting marshmallows on the fire we did not want the day to end.

........... A word about the Bath House... Absolutely stunning accommodation!! Ideal for family and friends to spend time together under one
........... roof but large enough to have your own space and privacy.

........... We can’t thank the staff enough for giving us one of the most memorable days of our lives. They are a lovely friendly team and
........... nothing is too much trouble. Always quick to respond to emails and any questions we had. Extremely easy to deal with and took
........... all the stress out of planning a wedding when you live over 4 hours away. Thanks again to all the team. Hope to see you again soon..."

........... "We found Tunnels by chance whilst googling quirky wedding venues. We’d wanted to get married somewhere warm by the beach
........... and Tunnels looked the ideal spot without having to ship the family abroad. We drove down one Saturday afternoon in June and
........... the moment we walked through the tunnel, we knew this was exactly what we’d been looking for. The view alone was enough
........... to capture our hearts. Ray and I had said we’d always wanted a relaxed, informal vibe to our wedding with plenty of sunshine,
........... laughter and dancing and that’s exactly what we had.

........... The guys at Tunnels were fantastic and were always on hand to answer my million and one questions regarding our wedding. As we
........... live in Leamington Spa, it was quite a journey to Ilfracombe so knowing that Darren, Josh and Jamie were always on hand was great
........... and made the run up to the wedding go so smoothly. I managed to source everything we needed for the wedding locally and had
........... several recommendations from Tunnels regarding cake, flowers etc.

........... The day itself was perfect. The weather couldn’t have been better with the sun shining for us all day and not a drop of rain. All our
........... family and friends ate, drank and danced till late into the night and enjoyed every minute of it.

........... Our wedding day was amazing and was everything we’d hoped for. I can’t wait to come back this summer and enjoy the beauty of it
........... all over again. The sunset alone warrants the trip! "

........... "After looking online and visiting numerous wedding venues close to home, we couldn't find anything that suited exactly what we were
........... looking for. We quite often got responses like "oh no, I'm not sure that we could do that" or "we haven't done that before, so I would
........... have to find out, but I am sure it would be fine" we were beginning to loose hope. All that we wanted was simple, a relaxed and
........... informal day.

........... Then we came across Tunnels Beaches, and decided to have a little road trip to check it out. I think before we even left the house
........... we knew that it would be perfect. And it was. Darren showed us around and we were amazed. Everything we wanted to do had the
........... response - "yes". There was no umming and arhing, it's what they do on a regular basis, so there was no question.

........... Booking everything was easy, a few emails backwards and forwards, with extremely quick replies, and we were sorted and ready to go.

........... When it came to settting up the venue and dropping everything off, we were lucky enough to have access the day before and Darren,
........... was again, on hand to give us advice and help.

........... The wedding day was perfect! It unfortunately rained for most of the day, which considering Tunnels is primarily an outside venue,
........... we thought would ruin it! But it didn't. We were able to have the ceremony outside, the guests were given umbrellas, and then we
........... went inside for welcome drinks. We still had the delicious bbq and the tables were set up inside which, worked really well! So many
........... of our guests said how lovely the food was! The ice creams were served outside, as the rain started to ease by the afternoon, and then
........... the party started for the evening.

........... We had the most amazing wedding day and will never be able to thank all of the staff at Tunnels Beaches enough! We can't wait to
........... come back as visitors and re-live it all over again!"

........... "What more is there to say except Tunnels Beaches is the perfect wedding venue. From the moment we saw it online we knew it
........... looked special, but seeing it in person just takes your breath away. We knew on our first visit that we didn't need to look at any
........... other venues, we booked our wedding date there and then. Throughout the whole process everyone at Tunnels has been brilliant,
........... Darren, Josh and Jamie were so helpful in the run up to the day, answering any questions we had whether they be by email or in
........... person. On the day itself from the moment we arrived in the morning to set up, to the last goodbyes at the end of the night,
........... Darren, Sarah and the rest of the staff did everything they could to make the whole day run smoothly.

........... We knew right from the moment that we started planning our day, we didn't want a typical 'formal' wedding, we wanted to be able
........... to relax and enjoy ourselves. What makes Tunnels ideal is that the venue is so flexible it can cater for absolutely any type of wedding.
........... As we are not local to Ilfracombe (approx 3 hrs away) we thought we may have trouble keeping on top of everything, but with the
........... help of recommendations from the venue (flowers, cake, photography, music) it seemed so easy arranging everything from afar,
........... although we have to admit it did allow us the excuse for a few weekends by the sea in the months leading up to the wedding!

........... The weather on the day may not have been 'perfect', but the cloud and the few spots of rain didn't dampen our enjoyment, and
........... the staff were always on hand to run out with umbrellas if it got a bit wet. The gourmet BBQ was excellent, Craig and his team
........... did a superb job, we have had so many compliments on the food from our guests, the sea-bass in particular was delicious and the
........... ice-creams went down an absolute treat!

........... There really isn't enough praise we can give to the venue and the staff. I think the last word has to go to one of our guests (who shall
........... remain nameless) who was heard to say "This is definitely the best wedding I've ever been to", until he was given a glare by his wife,
........... at which point he quickly added "except ours of course!"

........... spectacular views and the rustic coastal charm of the venue created the perfect backdrop to our special day - many of our guests
........... said it was the best wedding venue they'd ever been too!

........... And where do we start with the BBQ? Kudos to the chef, everything was delicious and so much of it, our families both love their
........... food and even they couldn't make 'thirds'!!

........... Staying at the Bath House with our family was also a good decision by us! The Bath House looked exactly as it did when we booked
........... it two years ago. Very well maintained with excellent communal areas for everyone to relax in. Thanks also for the wine, cake
........... and other treats, very much appreciated and they didn't last long!"

........... "I found Tunnels Beaches on a website by chance, before we’d even got engaged! I made a mental note but never imagined that one
........... year on I would be lucky enough to get married there. It was the first and only venue we viewed and the moment we walked through
........... the tunnel we both knew this was the place for us to marry, we did not hesitate to secure our booking!

........... The staff were very helpful and answered all of our questions and queries quickly (I had a lot)! The most important part for me was
........... that each and every time I spoke to Tunnels they made me feel like our wedding was the only one they had booked. They made me
........... feel like it was our big day and nothing else mattered despite them working hard to manage a hundred others!

........... Throughout our day the staff were attentive, helpful and very accommodating especially as we had 60mph gale force winds to contend
........... with and had to set up inside. The ceremony still went ahead outside and as Josh promised on day one… they will always endeavour to
........... have the ceremony outside and he made it happen! All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue is and how spectacular the
........... food was (we had the Gourmet BBQ). Due to the windy weather it wasn’t exactly the sunny beachside wedding day I had imagined but
........... with the spectacular views, the stunning venue, superb food and the amazing staff it truly was a magical day which we will never
........... forget. Regarless of the weather you will have a truly wonderful wedding. Thank you Tunnels!"

........... "Tunnels Beaches helped to make the day 'perfectly perfect' as described by guests.

........... Tunnels Beaches is a wonderful venue. We paid lots of attention to choosing a venue we would love to have for our big day.
........... We wanted to provide loved ones with a relaxed, comfortable setting with unforgettable memories, Tunnels Beaches did not let
........... us down. We could not wait to visit the venue to make sure we had made the right choice. Immediately both of us had no doubts
........... at all that this was the right venue for our wedding, it was ideal for family and friends who would be travelling long distances
........... from other parts of the country to see us marry, we wanted it to be special.

........... Knowing we wanted a beach themed wedding without taking our older relatives abroad as we were aware that this would not have
........... been best for some of them, we immediately found Tunnels Beaches. It was a very emotional visit personally, after being together
........... for 26 years we wanted to be sure we chose the perfect place to celebrate our journey together so far and to share this occasion
........... with our beautiful son Jack. We first met with Josh who made us feel completely at ease, we immediately fell in love with the place
........... and when Josh reassured us that we would be looked after on the day so that we could enjoy it, he was not wrong, seeing Josh again
........... on the wedding day along with Darren was another reminder just how great the team really are.

........... We have some beautiful photos showing family and friends smiling and happy, which means the world to us. Even though it rained
........... up until the ceremony, this did not impact on the amazing experience of getting married that we both felt throughout the whole day.
........... The rain stopped just after the ceremony and we were able to go outside and onto the wonderful beach to take some beautiful photos.
........... The weather made no difference to us or our guests, in fact the venue provided flexibility for unpredictable weather, with breathtaking
........... back drops. The ceremony was perfect, the large open windows provided a natural yet stunning view, it was a beautiful ceremony.
........... The service we all received from staff was excellent, the food was amazing and the whole team from Tunnels Beaches made sure the
........... day went swimmingly!

........... Thank you guys, your venue helped us to celebrate our journey so far in such an amazing way and gave us such special memories,
........... we are so pleased we chose Tunnels Beaches and we are looking forward to visiting the venue again in the New Year, your venue will
........... always have a special place in our hearts.
........... Best wishes, see you soon... Mr & Mrs Sean & Susan Snelling xx

........... inside and out, even better than the pictures! The view you are greeted with as you get to the end of tunnel is magnificent and you
........... literally feel like you could be anywhere in the world!

........... Darren, Josh and Jamie couldn’t do enough for us, which made planning our wedding 12,000km’s away an absolute breeze. The day
........... couldn’t have gone better, it was so relaxed, the weather was spectacular and the food was to die for, it was the best BBQ we have
........... ever had (that says a lot living in Australia!) All the staff were so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The guests were
........... absolutely buzzing, they all loved every minute of it and said it was the most relaxed wedding they had been to!

........... Thanks so much Tunnels Crew, you’re the best!"

........... On the day itself, we had the most amazing time and everything went so smoothly. Our guests are still raving about the food and the
........... atmosphere. We had all the weather in one day - wind, sunshine and rain. Despite this, we were able to host the entire day outside
........... and, even when the rain came in the evening, everyone stayed outside dancing under the big white umbrellas!

........... "We don't know where to begin in expressing how perfect Tunnels Beaches is for an amazing wedding... without a doubt we had the
........... day we had hoped & planned for and it is all down to how beautiful this venue is and the people behind its success. We knew we
........... wanted to get married by or on the beach in the UK and spent weeks searching the internet for possible venues with the intention
........... of visiting ones we liked. After fortunately stumbling across Tunnels we immediately fell in love with just the photos of the venue
........... and straight away booked it for our day.

........... We didn't even visit the venue, you don't need to, it really is beyond what we could of hoped for and if anything the photos do not do
........... it justice. From initially booking the venue to the run up and throughout our entire day, Darren, Josh and Jamie were fantastic, they
........... answered every question asked of them in the most timely fashion, I at one point questioned if they ever took any time off!!!

........... We live in Hertfordshire so it was great that the website for Tunnels was full of all the information any couple needs in preparing for
........... their big day, we decided to book every recommended service on their site, including the photographer, entertainment, florist and
........... cake, every element was fantastic and I can't emphasise enough how the ease of being able to trust in their experience & use their
........... recommendations, meant we really did have the day we had hoped for. The only thing we wish we had done but didn't was stay in
........... Bath House!!

........... We had the Canapés, Gourmet BBQ, Desserts, Cream Teas, Evening Snacks and Garden Drinks packages... oh as well as the Ice Cream
........... Tricycle, all of which were beyond our expectations, our guests were overwhelmed with the venue, quality and amount of food as well
........... as the service from every member of staff, with many stating it's the best wedding they have been to. The only thing we knew Tunnels
........... couldn't help us with was the weather but fortunately the weather was fantastic, we had bright blue skies and the most spectacular
........... sunset meaning we were able to enjoy the entire day completely outside, something we both really hoped for.

........... We knew we wanted a relaxed but unique wedding at a venue that still offered a high level of service specific to our needs or rather
........... hopes for the day, you really do get all of this at Tunnels Beaches and we can't thank the team enough for the best day ever, our perfect
........... wedding, we just wish we could do it all again tomorrow! Thank you for the amazing memories that will last a lifetime."

........... "Tunnels Beaches was the only wedding venue we actually went to visit. We instantly fell in love with the place, and booked it the
........... next day from Glastonbury festival. We really wanted a beautiful outside venue that was a little different, and that would allow us
........... to have the relaxed BBQ reception and party afterwards that we wanted.

........... The whole Tunnels team were amazing, nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole day from the food to the entertainment
........... was tailored for us. They made the tasks of planning a wedding so easy, that it really didn't matter that we weren't locally based.

........... The food was simply outstanding, we went for Canapés, Gourmet BBQ and Evening Ssnacks. The compliments we received on Tunnels'
........... behalf regarding the food were vast. Everybody at the wedding loved it!

........... Tunnels also gave the advantage of being able to offer family accommodation on-site at Bath House. This is beautiful accommodation
........... which really added to the whole weekend.

........... The whole three days we were at Tunnels were perfect - thanks so much!"
........... Elizabeth & Daniel Redfern


........... Also, a few kind words from Daniel's Mum, Kate...
........... "I just wanted to express my incredible gratitude for all the work you did to make Dan and Elizabeth's wedding the most perfect day
........... - from the setting, to the fantastic accommodation at the Bath House, to the food, to the brilliant staff (including those who helped
........... with my campervan issues!) to the weather!

........... There was nothing that wasn't perfect! Seeing my only son SO happy on his wedding day, not only because he and Elizabeth are so in
........... love, but also because every element of the day was exactly as he had hoped it would be, made me cry with joy (glad of the waterproof
........... mascara!!). Thank you so very much."


........... And, a few more kind words from Elizabeth's Mum, Barbara...
........... "I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic day you organised for my daughter Elizabeth's wedding on 22/06/15. We stayed in the
........... Bath House which was lovely. The whole day was truly memorable for all the right reasons and I really appreciate how much hard
........... work and professionalism goes into making a wedding day go so well.

........... The staff were very efficient and friendly. The food was wonderful and all the guests commented on how much they enjoyed the
........... barbecue and the evening snacks. Everything was seamless and all Elizabeth and Daniel had to do was relax and enjoy the day.
........... You have a stunning location but the service is what makes the venue so special. We also enjoyed the paella evening the night
........... before in the cafe. Thanks again. It was a fabulous day that no one will forget."

........... straight away we knew that nowhere else would compare. We really wanted our wedding day to be like no other wedding our
........... had been to before. The idea of getting married with the ocean a stone's throw away, having Pimms and lemonade as our arrival
........... drinks and the biggest, yummiest BBQ I have EVER tasted for our wedding dinner, just sounded like so much fun!

........... The food was sublime, the service was amazing and luckily the weather was fantastic. It was everything we had ever hoped for in
........... a wedding venue - relaxed, informal, and extremely unique. I just really wish we could do it all over again!

........... Words cannot even describe how magical our wedding day was. Naturally, every couple worries about the small details in the run up
........... to their big day; if everything is going to flow naturally, if all the timings are going to be right. We were assured by Jamie and Darren
........... from day one that there was nothing to worry about and they were completely right. It was amazing how on the day, they were
........... constantly working to make sure that we could both just enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about a thing.

........... So a big big thank you to everyone at Tunnels for helping to make our day so special!"

........... "When we first decided to get married we had no idea about where to hold the wedding. We both have a great love of the North
........... Devon coastline. So Caroline googled North Devon wedding venues. Tunnels Beaches was at the top of the search, and so it should be!
........... The website is excellent telling you everything you need to know. We were so impressed we made an appointment to view. We were
........... met by Josh, one of the managers who was very welcoming and showed us everything as well as answering all of our questions. Well
........... that was it decision made, having seen the venue we couldn't go anywhere else! It's spectacular, you could get on a plane and fly for
........... ten hours and you wouldn't find anything better!

........... So we booked the 18th June for the the following year. For the next 12 months every time we had a query we sent an email and we
........... had a reply within a matter of a couple of hours, and always a positive yes we can response! They couldn't have done more to make
........... the day special.

........... When the day finally arrived we were blessed with perfect weather. The management and staff were outstanding in making everyone
........... feel relaxed, you didn't notice them but everything was done in an efficient and friendly manner.

........... We chose the summer barbecue for our meal. The quality was first class, and there was plenty of it! We had just over 50 friends and
........... family share the day with us, many of them have told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We are obviously a bit biased
........... but we agree!

........... What more can you say? The best venue, perfect weather, outstanding food, friendly and efficient staff! Thank you very much Darren,
........... Josh and all of your team, you couldn't have done any more!"

........... thank you for playing such a significant part in our wedding. We fell in love with Tunnels on the internet and went to visit on a
........... somewhat cloudy damp day, however this did not put us off (thankfully) and we felt quite rightly that our first love was right and
........... that we wanted to go ahead with our plans on staging our momentous occasion at your venue.

........... Despite being quite some distance away, planning was not difficult with the use of the website and email, with any questions being
........... answered efficiently.

............Our main aim for the wedding was to have a relaxed atmosphere where everyone could just absorb the occasion and enjoy the day
........... as much as us, which was both somewhere different and special. Much discussion among family and guests had taken place prior to
........... the wedding as to why we should chose this location, however our choice was simply that it was perfect for what we wanted with
........... 'perfect' being the exact sentiment used in the feedback on the day and continually since the wedding.

........... We have to thank all those involved in the planning and delivery not only on the day but prior and during our stay at the Bath House.
........... It is clear just how professional they all are as the wedding ran like clockwork with unobtrusive support and service. Nothing was too
........... much trouble.

........... The food was amazing and plentiful with the deserts still a topic of conversation.We were certainly made to feel so special and all in
........... all would have no hesitation in recommending this for anyone's 'special' occasion, in fact we would only encourage it!"

........... and was pleasantly surprised, the views overlooking the beach are amazing.

........... Planning the wedding was pretty stress free, any questions we had we were able to liaise with Darren and Josh via email or phone
........... and they were always quick to reply. Decoration was kept pretty simple as we had decided that the venue spoke for itself. Flowers
........... were done by my auntie, the cake was made by my mum and the photographer was Matt Fryer, we also used his photo booth which
........... was made to fit Tunnels, we had some awesome photos from the booth and some beautiful photos from Matt.

........... We wanted a relaxed and informal venue for our wedding and that's exactly what Tunnels is. It was an amazing day with amazing
........... weather. The staff were faultless from start to finish and the food was second to none.

........... We had the Gourmet BBQ and what can we say it was just stunning, we had endless compliments from the guests saying how nice the
........... food was. It looked good and tasted even better, it was followed by a Buffet in the evening and that was just as good as the BBQ.
........... Huge compliments to the chef.

........... From start to finish the day just flowed. We didn't have to worry about a single thing. It was just how we imagined our wedding day
........... to be and we couldn't of done it without the help from everyone at Tunnels."

........... process of looking at potential wedding venues and when we saw that they did weddings (overlooking the sea), well that was it,
........... it was totally for us and we didn’t need to go anywhere else. We both loved it the first time we went there. You too would “get it”
........... if you saw the view, the amazing sunset and felt the chilled out vibe that surrounds this venue.

........... Darren, Josh and Jamie, were great, extremely helpful and always quick to answer our questions (worries) making the planning straight
........... forward and it was a huge relief to know our day was in safe hands.

........... We did choose local people to do our flowers and live music. Both of which were perfect and lovely.

........... We sat down to eat overlooking the sunset in the spectacular grey rocky cliffs of North Devon. It was perfect (still a little windy in
........... June mind so wrap up!). There was plenty of food (more than enough) and it was all so delicious. The prawn and bacon wraps got
........... the highest praise from everyone we spoke to and the Cornish Pasties served in the evening were also a huge hit!!

........... All the staff were lovely, professional and accommodating, everything was done for us. We were allowed to come and help and
........... organize and tell them exactly what we wanted where and when. The next day (when heads were soar) everything was packed and
........... ready to collect. This made our morning a lot easier!

........... The entire day was amazing and we didn’t want it to end. It poured with rain on the morning of the wedding but by 1pm the sun
........... started breaking through right on key. And, luckily, when I arrived it was out and stayed out all afternoon with the sunset we hoped
........... for in the evening. We didn’t have any strict timelines, only suggested ones, so that we could get everything in!! The whole day flowed
........... and went so quickly I had no time to do my make up! But our guests felt relaxed and loved the scenery, the venue, the food and drinks.

........... We can’t thank you enough for making our day so special. We felt like we were in a fairy tale setting and we wished it could have

........... If you have the chance I'd recommend the Bath House – it is so beautifully decorated and accommodated close family and friends

........... you really don't have to dress this venue so there's very little to do and worry about, the night before we booked the cafe for a really
........... informal evening of great food and fun. We really made the most of Tunnels all weekend.

........... Changing Faces did a great job on all of the girls in the house hair and make up and Matt Fryer our photographer who knows the venue
........... very well was great on advise early on and just made the day relaxing. As everyone else has said Darren, Josh and all the staff just make
........... everything happen around you, you don't have anything to worry or think about anything they are just so professional and fun and the

........... "We had a wonderful day at the Tunnels Beaches, Josh and Darren sorted everything perfectly and the the staff kept our glasses
........... topped up, leaving us nothing to do but enjoy our day.

........... I couldn't have imagined a less stressful experience in both the build up and on the day. The venue and catering were fantastic
........... and managed to reflect the day we wanted. I know everyone has to say it but... "best wedding ever" came up far too often for it
........... not to ring true!"

........... "The Tunnels Beaches works out as the most perfect venue for a wedding - a truly stunning location and the nicest people behind it,
........... making sure that the day goes as smoothly and as stress free as possible! When we decided to get married in Devon, we visited the
........... Tunnels on an off chance as it was somewhere Clare had been to many times as a child - not really knowing what to expect. It was
........... the third venue we had seen whilst down there and as soon as we walked in we knew it was where we wanted to get married.

........... Darren and Josh were amazing, keeping us updated and on the day making sure everything was perfect. Calm and collected, every
........... worried question we had was put at ease. We couldn't have asked for a more stunning place, and were incredibly lucky with beautiful
........... weather for the ceremony and an atmospheric stormy sky for the evening.

........... The food was some of the best we have ever tasted, and our guests are still commenting on it whenever we see them - it really is
........... delicious and generously served! The staff on the day were brilliant, keeping everyone happy, drinks flowing and even tidying up for
........... us in the evening.

........... We couldn't have imagined a better day, and the venue really did it's magic to tie everything together with the most stunning backdrop.
........... We would certainly recommend this venue."

........... "We got married at Tunnels Beaches on Sunday (26-4-15)... BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES... All the staff are just amazing, HIGHLY HIGHLY
........... RECOMMENDED. It'll be the best thing you do... Apart from saying 'I do' of course! Food is top notch, venue is unique and if you're lucky
........... enough to get the Sun on your side, I honestly don't think there is anywhere better.

........... Wish we could do it every week. Definitely be re-visiting as much as possible. I can't give the whole package enough praise. Just PERFECT.

........... We also stayed in Bath Ho
