                "Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. We had the most incredible day! So many things and people I could thank
                but will save it all for the longer message!

                A huge huge thank you to Naomi and Simon who were absolutely incredible and found solutions seamlessly so that the day ran so
                smoothly."

"Where do we start…What an incredible wedding we had and we just didn’t want it to end. Everything about the venue,
                the staff, food, drink & organisation was out of this world.

                We stayed with most of our wedding guests at "The woodlands" accommodation the night before and the night of the
                wedding. We would recommend this to anyone as it was really special to be able to spend more time celebrating with all our
                guests. The house was amazing and so convenient for everyone to get to the venue without having to travel, we simply
                walked through the amazing tunnel and we were there.

                The wedding day itself just felt like a dream and we struck gold with the weather. We always dreamed of an intimate abroad
                wedding but due to family not being able to travel far we decided to still go with a costal wedding at "Tunnels Beaches".
                Well, we wouldn’t of know the difference. Everyone felt like they where abroad, the sun was shining, the sound of the waves
                and refreshing Aperol Spritz…what more could you ask for.

                "Tunnels Beaches" really do have a dream team and honestly our day wouldn’t of been the same without them. Simon especially
                who was in charge of how the day was run, his calm yet efficient approach to things was perfect. Simon was also very thoughtful
                when it came to making sure our two children where kept happy at the wedding and went out of his way to make it his job that
                they enjoyed themselves so that we could have a stress free day.

                The list of positive’s is endless and we could just carry on singing their praises. We will be sure to revisit for future anniversaries
                and family holidays as it will always be a place that’s very special in our hearts."
                Many thanks, Kirsty & Tom

"What a venue!! What a day!! We honestly cannot thank the staff at Tunnels Beaches enough for everything they did for us.
                After two postponements (thanks to covid) our wedding day really was everything we had dreamed of and more.

                The staff were so friendly, efficient and couldn’t do enough for us. The food was absolutely incredible. One month on we are
                still hearing about how fabulous the dishes were - in particular the 'Butternut Dauphinois & Goats Cheese Tart'. We have had
                so many wonderful compliments from our guests.

                If we could do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. Thanks again to all at Tunnels for giving us the perfect day."

"Thank you thank you thank you for everything, you guys really do ensure the entire day is relaxed, fantastic, and seamless.
                Everyone at Tunnels was lovely and friendly, Naomi and Simon were perfect (and very attentive in topping up our drinks!),
                we really felt like we could sit back and enjoy our day. Even on the run up to the wedding all our last minute questions and
                changes were answered and sorted in a flash.

                Our guests were stunned by the beauty of the venue, it’s the perfect balance of relaxed-beach vibes to a chic wedding. We
                were even slightly shocked that the weather was so great considering the non-stop rain we had the night before! It was idyllic
                and made for some great photos.

                Rich and I, being foodies, were so excited about the BBQ and it did not disappoint! The fish was so fresh and cooked to perfection,
                the burgers were a great size to minimise dropping food down you (or is that just me?) and all the veggie, vegan and GF options
                were delicious. We went for the 'Raspberry Panna Cotta' for dessert - I NEED that recipe!

                We hope we’ve inspired some of our friends to get married at Tunnels Beaches just so we can come back and enjoy it again,
                but if not, we’ll be back to visit anyway... :)"

"We loved our wedding at Tunnels Beaches. We visited a few venues before making the trip down to Devon to see Tunnels.
                The moment we stepped out into the cove and saw the venue nestled in the cliffs I knew this was where we would get married.
                We made a provisional booking later that day!

                The build up to the big day was all straightforward. The team were always quick to respond to queries and were flexible on
                the menu to suit our dietary requirements.

                Staying in the houses was such a big part of the experience. They are beautifully decorated and were a great base for our
                families to get together. Everyone loved the night before meal (Thai Curry) and a chance to have a 'few' drinks.

                The whole wedding day was seamless. Naiomi, Simon, and the rest of the team were like a well-oiled machine. Their
                communication was excellent. It felt like the team were in complete control which left Kim and I to enjoy the party without
                a second thought.

                I'm struggling to find any fault. The venue speaks for itself, the food was delicious, the drinks were cold, and the team were
                flawless. We've already relived the day so many times through the photos and videos. It was a truly special day made possible
                by Tunnels Beaches."

"We want to say a huge thank you to Tunnels Beaches for making our wedding day more amazing than we could ever have
                hoped for. All of the staff were incredible with a special shout out to Naomi and Simon who took all of the stress away and
                helped make sure every last detail was perfect.

                We brought our friends and family down to ilfracombe from all over the country (and abroad!) and they were all thrilled that
                we did. We hired the amazing Courtyard and Bath House properties, which gave us the ideal base to build up to the big day
                and then prolong the celebrations with a BBQ on Sunday.

                But as great as the whole weekend was, the wedding itself was the absolute highlight. Our guests were glowing about what
                an incredible venue we’d chosen, the food was amazing - from the canapés and ice cream to the Gourmet BBQ and evening
                Tapas - and we both had the most special and happiest day of our lives!

                Again, a massive thank you to everyone at Tunnels, we can’t wait to come back for a visit next time we’re in town!"

                Simon who were fab!

                The rain dispersed and sun came out just in time and we had what we describe as a perfect day. I shoot a lot of weddings as
                a wedding photographer and have to say your organisation and attention to detail blew me away. We didnt even notice the
                turn arounds, it was like something from the theatre.

                Tunnels is so amazing."

 "What a fantastic day! Tunnels Beaches as a venue is simply incredible and impeccable, the venue itself has such a warm
                and relaxed atmosphere and it was effortlessly fun to be there. The views are stunning, we started out with a cloudy day that
                brought drama to the skyline but then the blue skies and sunshine appeared and it ended with a gorgeous sunset.

                The staff were just brilliant... flexible, helpful, welcoming and kept the entire day running super smooth. I would also like to
                point out that our wedding was postponed 3 times because of the pandemic and Jamie and his team were nothing but supportive
                and reassuring, they were there for us for better and for worse! 2 years later, we finally had our day and it was worth the wait!

                The food was delicious, not the typical 3 course meal you often get at weddings but an array of fish, meat and salads, every
                single guest I spoke to raved about how tasty the food was and how much food there was, it took everyone by surprise to get
                that standard and quality at a wedding.

                The entire day was exactly how I hoped it would be. Tunnels Beaches is such a special wedding venue, unique and we could not
                have asked for anything more out of the day, it was truly a day we will never forget."

                We couldn't have asked for a better day, from the venue to the food and drink and the extremely helpful team guiding us

 "Tunnels Beaches have it absolutely nailed when it comes to your wedding day. From the moment we first visited the venue
                - beautiful and atmospheric even on a grey, drizzly day like that one - we knew this was the place where we wanted to get
                married. Neither of us are from Devon, but it has always held a special place in our hearts - and even more so now.

                It is so hard to put into words how extraordinary our day was: the build-up to the event, throughout the day itself, and after
                was so relaxed because Tunnels really do have everything sorted. (We were delighted at how they had tidied up all our bits and
                pieces from the wedding so it was ready for us to collect the following morning - this saved a lot of hassle!)

                The day itself was everything we had wished for and more: the sun was shining and the summer, holiday atmosphere for an
                April wedding was remarkable. Countless guests have raved about the day, putting it up there as one of the best weddings
                they have been to, and that is all down the package Tunnels offers. The location, scenery, food, vibe and friendly staff literally
                couldn't get any better.

                We had a bit of drama at the end of the night when a few too many drinks and some crazy dance moves led to one of our guests
                falling and breaking their collarbone at 1.45am, with no sober guests in sight to be of any real assistance. The staff members
                couldn't have done more to help, with one of the barmen even going above and beyond by driving the guest in question to the
                hospital. Incredible.

                We wish we had more words to describe how thankful we are to Tunnels for creating such a magical, unforgettable day for us,
                our family and our friends. Needless to say, we will be back to visit for years to come."

 "Tunnels Beaches was the 3rd wedding venue we visited and although it was the furthest from our hometown and for all of our
                guests, that didn’t matter. The moment we walked into Tunnels Beaches, we knew that this was the place we were going to be
                married!

                We fell in love with the stunning location, the private beach and the great choice of accommodation that was available for our
                nearest and dearest to join us for the wedding weekend. It was the perfect place in every way.

                COVID meant we had to push back our wedding back another 53 weeks but It was so worth the wait. We had the most perfect day.
                It was a cool but dry day, but to be fair it could have rained and we really wouldn't have cared as the scenery would have looked
                just as stunning no matter what the weather. We were lucky to get a lovely sunset and our photographer Aga Tomaszek took
                some amazing sunset shots out on one of the tidal pools.

                All of our guests loved it as much as we did. So many of them said, “This is the best wedding I’ve ever been to” and they raved
                about the quality and variety of food, the location, the cake, the flowers, everything. All the suppliers we chose did us so proud.
                We were amazed that Matt of Yeti Film even got our preview video to us before lunchtime the very next day.

                We really did have the wedding of our dreams and we will be back to Ilfracombe to celebrate future wedding anniversaries in a place
                that has become and will now always be very special to us. Thank you so much to Jamie and the rest of the Tunnels Beaches team
                for looking after us and making our wedding day unforgettable."

"We were engaged long before the world got turned upside down by COVID-19 and we were one of the very lucky couples that
                didn't have their big day ruined by postponements or social distancing restrictions. Our initial dream wedding was to fly out
                to Ibiza with only our closest family and friends, but travel restrictions made this nothing but a pipedream. As days turned
                into months, and months turned into years we re-evaluated our plans and both agreed if we could find the right venue in the
                UK we would tie the knot here...

                Tunnels Beaches was the first venue we saw and we immediately fell in love with it in all its glory. From the stunning scenery,
                to the beautiful accomodation and the incredibly welcoming and very helpful staff, we hadn't even started the car before we
                let them know we wanted to get married there. We had a few back and forths about the date and finally settled on February,
                it was our 8 year anniversary the day after our wedding date, so we couldn't think of a more perfect way to celebrate.

                We opted for the Winter Elopement Package that included: 2 night's accomodation in 'The Woodlands', a three course meal
                and of course the use of the wedding venue.

                Us and our wedding party all hail from London and the South East, so it was a long old journey for everyone, but every single
                one of our guests have since asked us if we can renew our vows at the venue next year so they can visit again! We all had such
                a fantastic time, we could not have asked for better company, better weather or a more perfect place to get married.

                Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Tunnels Beaches for playing such a big part of our long awaited special day - You were
                all amazing!"
                All the best, Natalie & Terri-Anne

"We got married at Tunnels Beaches in Feb 2022 after booking the Winter Elopement Package. This just ticked all the boxes
                for us, with the beautiful modern onsite accommodation, fabulous beach location, stunning venue with spectacular views
                and omg did I mention the delicious food?

                Right from the first contact, all the way up to the wedding day, Jamie and the team quickly responded to all questions and
                requests effortlessly. We were looked after on day of by Naomi, and her team making sure we had everything we needed and
                even promising the weather would brighten up, which it did!

                We stayed in 'The Woodlands' the night before and night of the wedding which was perfect for our group, and such a lovely
                experience turning our wedding into a 2-3 day event.

                We had the most wonderful time and cannot thank the Tunnels Beaches team enough for their relaxed vibe, but fantastic
                attention to detail and making sure everything ran smoothly. I can highly recommend Mark from Evolve Photography for
                perfectly capturing our special day.

                Booking Tunnels Beaches for our wedding was the best decision... Not even stormy weather can ruin your day here! We look
                forward to visiting again when returning to North Devon."

"We live in Los Angeles, but wanted to get married in England (where I, the groom, am from). We found Tunnels Beaches,
                and it was perfect. The space itself was amazing, and the Winter Elopement Package was ideal for us and our intimate,
                family-only, wedding.

                From the start the Tunnels team were so accommodating with our seemingly endless questions, all over email because of the
                time difference, and when we did set up a call they were so supportive in working around the weird scheduling. And then they
                went above and beyond, working it out so we could have our favourite champagne served on the day!

                Once we got over there, everything was easy. The on-site accommodation, the parking, the anticipated-amenities so we could
                all have a glass of wine without worrying about anything. And when we did need a refill, the town had everything you could
                need within a stones-throw.

                And on the day, when things did get a bit overwhelming (mostly for me!) the staff were so thoughtful and preemptive - stepping
                in at the right moment to take things off our plates, using their professional experience, and smooth everything over so we
                could just enjoy ourselves!

                We can’t recommend this venue and its team enough!"

"From the minute we booked Tunnels Beaches it has been the most relaxed wedding process I could have ever imagined.

                Before arriving on Monday I had some concerns about how everything would work, especially since we hadn’t had time to view
                the venue beforehand. I really didn’t need to have worried! From the second you greeted us and showed us to 'The Woodlands'
                I instantly felt relaxed and sure we had made the best decision in holding our wedding there. The accommodation was fantastic
                and all our guests commented on what an amazing set up it was. To be so close to the actual wedding venue and be able to be
                with the wedding party for the duration of those few days was just perfect.

                The actual day of the wedding ran so smoothly and that was all thanks to the team and particularly Jacs - she took all the stress
                away from being a bride and having to think through little details. Her calm and relaxed manner were exactly what I needed and
                nothing was too much trouble for her. Not once did I feel rushed or pressured to make decisions, even when I made last minute
                changes to the location of the ceremony.

                Once we were at the venue and the ceremony was finished the staff inside were equally as amazing. Considering in terms of an
                Elopement we ended up being quite a big one (with lots of excitable and boisterous children in the mix!) we were never made to
                feel anything but welcomed. The staff were all incredibly friendly and professional and just helped make our day easier and more
                enjoyable than we could have ever hoped for. They were flexible with last minute changes to meal timings so the photographer
                was able to grab some outside shots before he left and just so helpful throughout the whole wedding.

                The food was outstanding. Every single guest commented that it was the best wedding meal they have ever had and apparently
                the prawn cocktail the best they had ever tasted!

                Obviously the location speaks for itself in terms of its beauty, but even after seeing all the social media posts of the Tunnels -
                nothing could have prepared us for just how spectacular it was in person - we came out of the tunnel it took our breath away
                (and that was nothing to do with the winds!) it was more perfect than we ever could have envisaged. Alongside that, the venue
                itself was just beautiful. Stylish and modern, yet with a cozy laid back vibe, and the views from the first floor were spectacular.

                After 17 years together, I always presumed our wedding day would be a low key affair and nothing particularly special. But thanks
                to you, your wonderful staff and the amazing venue I can hand on heart say it was up there with one of the best days of our lives.

                We will always be eternally grateful for all you did on helping us achieve a wedding we could only have dreamt of."
                With all our thanks, John & Ruth (the new Mr & Mrs Williams)

"From the very second we walked into Tunnels Beaches back in 2017 my now husband & I both fell completely in love, our breath
                was literally taken by the panoramic views of the sea. We knew there & then that was the venue we needed to say ‘I Do’ in.

                Unfortunately we were one of the thousands of weddings affected by the pandemic which is where the service we received from
                Tunnels completely shone through. The communication was next to none, Tunnels were so attentive and helpful. I personally
                can’t thank them enough for all of their support during such a stressful period for any bride.

                We finally got our dream day and the wait had well and truly been worth it. The day ran perfectly all thanks to Tunnels. All our
                guests commented on how beautiful the venue is and how incredible the food was. Tunnels made you feel like the most important
                wedding they’d ever dealt with.

                We couldn’t of picked a better venue and will forever be grateful to the team at Tunnels for making our day so special and smooth."

"Tunnels Beaches was the first and only wedding venue we viewed. When we went to view we just knew straight away that
                having our wedding day there would be amazing. We were not wrong at all, our wedding day was the BEST day ever!!!

                From the moment we booked the venue, the communication with the staff was great. We had so many questions about all
                the small details as we got nearer to the day but after sending an email, we would have a reply within no more than 20 minutes.
                They were always happy to help!

                Us and some of our guests stayed in 'The Courtyard' and 'The Bath House'. When we arrived we were shown around the
                spotlessly clean and beautiful houses. Everything you could possibly need was in the houses, they were a great base and we
                spent so much time around our wedding day there. We had welcome drinks with our guests the night before our wedding
                and then a more chilled BBQ on the day after our wedding. It meant we had 3 full days to spend lots of time with our friends
                and family all in one place!

                Everything was so well organised for our wedding day. The staff are happy to help set up your wedding decor which really helped
                us out - not that you need too much as the venue and views are beautiful!! The weather was perfect for our special day and we
                will never forget how amazing it was. We absolutely loved every part and our guests were also in love with the venue.

                The food was so good and there was plenty of it. We had cornish pasties as our evening snack which I highly recommend, they
                were massive!!!

                The backdrop is incredible and so many people commented on how it was the best venue they have ever seen. We absolutely
                love it and the venue as well as our day will always hold a special place in our hearts."

"Tunnels Beaches was the most magical setting for our wedding day. From the moment we walked in through the gates
                and down through the tunnel at our viewing with Jamie, we knew there and then that it was the place we wanted to spend
                our special day… and that’s before we’d even seen inside the venue!!

                We loved every single thing about Tunnels, from the gorgeous scenery right down to every little detail, it was all just perfect.
                Words can’t really describe how magical it was to say our “I Do’s” whilst listening to the sound of the waves.

                A big thank you to the amazing Tunnels team who helped make our day so special - throughout the build up to the wedding and
                on the day, everyone was so attentive and made everything so easy for us. Neither of us once felt stressed leading up to the day
                as we knew it was all in hand!

                We will definitely take you up on the offer of visiting next time we’re nearby!..."

"We had the most wonderful Wedding Day at Tunnels Beaches, and wish we could do it all over again and again!

                The staff are absolutely fantastic, they made the day feel like a dream. They all had the biggest smiles, and were just a joy
                to be around. Nothing was too small an ask from them - they had  thought of every detail. (They even helped me do up my
                shoes!) We would recommend the venue to anyone in a heartbeat.

                Thank you Tunnels, for making our dream wedding come true."

"From the moment we arrived at Tunnels Beaches we knew this was the wedding venue for us. It was the first and last venue
                we looked at after getting engaged in September 2018. From the initial phone call to set up a viewing to arriving on our
                wedding day, the team were friendly, helpful and happy to help in any way they could.

                We booked our wedding for September 2020, little did we know a pandemic would hit us and derail all our plans. However,
                Jamie and the team were incredible at talking through date changes, rearrangements and just general queries as we navigated
                through a challenging time.

                When our day finally arrived, just over a year later than planned, it really was worth the wait. The stunning location, delicious
                food, brilliant staff and beautiful venue suited us perfectly and reflected our love of the seaside as a couple.

                We cannot recommend Tunnels Beaches enough and it will always have a special place in our hearts."

"Tunnels was the perfect wedding venue - a stunning setting, laid back atmosphere with lovely, helpful staff.

                Our wedding was moved several times during the pandemic, and the team worked with us to offer us as many options as possible
                during what was no doubt an extremely stressful time for them as well. We were so happy to be able to finally have our wedding
                with 80 guests this September as planned, and even with dry, sunny weather!

                We really wanted a relaxed, laid-back venue with minimum fuss and extra 'frills', and Tunnels is great for that. The staff really
                do think and take care of everything, so that there's minimum stress.

                So many of our guests commented on how gorgeous the venue was and how delicious the food was (it was amazing!). We couldn't
                fault anything on the day, and there were always staff seamlessly on hand to gently let us know what was happening next or to
                make sure we were fed and watered.

                Thanks for such a memorable day!"

"Tunnels Beaches is quite simply a real life paradise. We first stumbled across Tunnels in summer 2018 and knew right away we
                wanted to get married there. We booked it within a few days for September 2020 and the countdown was on. We visited twice
                before the big day, on both occasions everyone was super helpful and answered all our questions. Obviously our wedding was
                unable to go ahead in September 2020 so we moved to April 2021 and then again to September 2021. Each time we moved,
                everyone was so helpful and accommodating and we were always kept in the loop with what was going on.

                Jamie, Jacs and Tanya were always on hand to answer the thousands of questions we had and Catherine was an absolute angel
                to work with in the last few weeks when we had last minute drop outs and changes to make.

                The day itself was nothing short of perfection. Everything was carefully thought out, exactly how we’d asked and Naomi, Rebecca
                and Simon were brilliant throughout. Every time Rebecca noticed I didn’t have a drink – she was on it! The food was spectacular
                and a lot of our guests commented it was the best wedding food they’d ever had. We’re still eating the cake of cheese over 3 weeks
                on, although we’re now down to nursing the last bit of stilton as it was simply delicious.

                I don’t know how many weddings we’ve been to but there’s always something you think could have been better or ran more smoothly
                and I can honestly say hand on heart that if you want to have the wedding of the century that not one of your guests will ever forget
                – then Tunnels Beaches is for you. We’re already planning out 10 year vow renewal!"

"Our wedding at Tunnels Beaches was a dream come true - honestly better than we could ever have imagined. The spectacular,
                unique setting formed a breathtaking backdrop to the wedding and the team who looked after us were exceptional, ensuring
                that everything ran smoothly and the day felt relaxed throughout.

                Prior to the event, Jamie, Catherine and Tanya were impressively efficient in responding to emails, even during the stresses
                of the pandemic. We would also like to thank all the staff who were on hand during the wedding - each one of them was so
                friendly and helpful.

                It drizzled almost all day, but we were still able to have the ceremony outside and the Tunnels team were brilliant in ensuring
                that all our guests stayed dry. Afterwards, large parasols were put up on the terrace - a nice touch which allowed the canapes
                and mingling to continue outdoors despite the poor weather. Like everyone does in the lead up to the big day, we had pored
                over the weather forecast praying for sunshine, but come rain or shine Tunnels is still the most beautiful, dramatic venue and
                the drizzle didn't put a dampener on the day in the slightest.

                We had read all the testimonials raving about the food so had high expectations, but we also wondered whether it could really
                be THAT good. We can confirm: it really was! Over half of our guests were vegetarian and the team were very helpful in
                accommodating our special requests. Carnivores and veggies alike are still talking about the gourmet BBQ! Everything was
                delicious, perfectly cooked and seasoned, with the butternut dauphinois and asparagus & parmesan pastries being particular
                hits. And the dipped strawberries for dessert are truly something special.

                We stayed in The Courtyard, which was a perfect base for our close family. The accommodation was luxurious and spacious,
                and being right next door to the venue was so convenient and meant no worry about transport or parking.

                Thank you so much for helping us have such a wonderful wedding - we look forward to returning to Tunnels Beaches in the future
                to reminisce about our magical day there."

"If you're looking for a stunning location, a stress-free booking & organisation process, incredible food and a team that feels
                as excited about your big day as you are – Tunnels Beaches is it!

                From the very first time we viewed the venue we fell in love with the whole place, people and all. We're a fairly chilled couple
                but personalisation was really important to us and we had a lot of ideas for how we wanted our day to go; the Tunnels team
                never rushed us, never told us what we could or couldn't do in the space. They maintained an "it's your wedding, you do you"
                attitude the entire time.

                The food and drinks packages are really flexible and SO worth the money. Top tip: get the monkfish skewers – you will not regret
                it! Our friends are still raving about them two months later.

                As for the venue, what can we say that isn't already so obvious from just looking at the place? Being tucked away in your own
                corner of the world, on your own private beach behind the rock, feels really special and intimate, and having the sun set behind
                you through panoramic windows during the speeches is a moment you won't forget. Trust us.

                We were always a little sceptical when people told us "it'll be the best day of your lives"... but it really was the best day of our lives
                and we couldn't imagine it having taken place anywhere but Tunnels Beaches."

"The moment we stepped out of the tunnel, we knew this was the only place we could imagine getting married and that it would
                be the perfect day. And we weren't wrong! The venue is exceptional in every way. It is designed perfectly to ensure that the day
                runs smoothy, with every small detail taken into account. The venue is so incredibly unique due to the private beach and rugged
                coastline it offers. We have continuously heard from guests about what a memorable venue it is and we can't argue with them.

                Our day ran more smoothly than we could have ever imagined, and it is all thanks to the amazing staff at Tunnels Beaches.
                They were so on top of the whole day and so incredibly thoughtful, kind and reassuring throughout. Even the small things like
                checking we had eaten, ensuring guests with complicated dietary requirements were catered for and keeping us on time, but
                also allowing flexibility when needed.

                We hate to bring up the dreaded Covid, but we cannot emphasise how well Jamie and the staff at Tunnels Beaches handled the
                situation, and we will always be eternally grateful for that. As well as keeping us regularly informed about how the venue would
                be moving forward during the constantly changing rules, the venue with its outdoor setting and fold back doors allowed for all
                guests to feel comfortable attending.

                We cannot talk about how amazing Tunnels is without also mentioning the food!! Our guests are still raving about the buffet.
                As well as looking amazing, the food also tasted fantastic. We had a lot of vegetarian and vegan guests, as well as a lot of
                dietary requirements and everyone was catered for.

                Thank you so much for allowing us to have such a memorable day with all of our friends and family. I wish we could do it all again!"

"Before even getting engaged we both individually knew that when the time came, we would want to get married by the sea.
                Phil, having grown up in Cornwall and Devon had spent much time down in Ilfracombe and I had grown to love it as well.
               
               
Tunnels Beaches was the second venue we saw for our wedding. Our search stopped there. The natural beauty of the location,
                the kind nature of the staff, the endlessly positive testimonials about the food meant we knew this was where we would tie
                the knot.

                Unfortunately, Covid delayed our plans by a year but Jamie and Catherine made the process of delaying our wedding stressless
                and seamless. We were forecasted for a thunderstorm for the whole weekend but somehow, as always, when it mattered the
                most Ilfracombe turned it around. We were married in the most beautiful weather surrounded by the most wonderful people
                and spectacular scenery.

                A family member felt unwell during the day and The Tunnels Beaches team were exceptional at making sure they were OK and
                the rest of the wedding guests were kept entertained, fed and watered while they were looked incredibly well looked after.

                Throughout the day me and Phil felt pampered to no end! Everyone just made sure we always had a drink on hand - they never
                worried us with anything to do with setting up the venue, where decorations etc should be. At no point did we feel we had to
                manage anything or worry that something was going to go wrong. Our band commented on how well they were looked after as
                well and couldn't praise the location enough!

                The best thing about this venue... being able to party on until 2 am and party we did! The staff never made us feel like we were
                a burden - they were so supportive of us having a great time!

                Our guests are still raving about our wedding and so many have said it's the best wedding venue they have ever been to.
                I can't thank Jamie and his team enough for all they have done for us. Or our band, saxophone player, florist, photographers
                and make up artists were all amazing. Best Wedding Day!!"

"We'd like to thank everyone at Tunnels Beaches for bringing our wedding day dream to life! We genuinely couldn't have wished
                for more, every single detail on the day was completely perfect, from the service to the incredible food and drink, and of course
                the stunning setting and breathtaking venue!

                We could write a whole testimonial just on the food - genuinely the best meal of our lives! Everything was cooked to perfection,
                and there was plenty for everyone - a lot of our guests have since admitted to us that they had 2nds/3rds! We were a little
                worried that service would seem disjointed with guests having to go down to the BBQ to select their food, but we needn't have
                worried, service ran so smoothly and the nature of the BBQ service added to the relaxed feel of our day.

                The team were all so incredible in delivering the chilled out, summer time beachside celebration for us - everything on the day
                ran so smoothly, the planning process was so easy and everything was delivered as requested. All of our guests are still talking
                about how perfect our wedding day was, and considering how busy 2021 had been for the wedding industry, you'd never know
                how much pressure the team will have been under and how tired they would have almost certainly been feeling!

                We felt like the most important couple to ever get married. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for incredible memories
                of the most perfect day we'll have for the rest of our lives."

"Sam and I just want to say a huge thank you to you all for making our wedding so amazing...

                From Jamie showing us around initially, Catherine and Tanya being so helpful in answering all my questions in the build up,
                to Naomi, Simon, Alfie and the others (so sorry I didn’t catch everyone’s names!) you have all been so friendly, helpful and
                accommodating. Our wedding was absolutely perfect for us and we couldn’t be more grateful.

                The venue is absolutely stunning as we already knew but it completely blew us and our guests away on the day and as non meat
                eaters we were apprehensive about choosing all vegan/veggie choices but every single guest commented on how amazing the
                food was and we couldn’t agree more.

                So thank you again for helping us to have the exact day we wanted, we’ll remember it forever."

"Myself and my husband had an idea of what kind of wedding venue we would like when we started our extensive search but
                didn’t think we would find it in the UK! I happened to come across Tunnels Beaches and it was on our to view list, along with
                a couple of other venues. We headed down to Ilfracombe back in 2018 with the plan of looking around this venue and then
                comparing to others we were yet to go and see. The weather was miserable but within about 30 seconds of making our first
                walk down the tunnel and seeing the most spectacular view and venue, we changed our minds and booked before we left
                (along with accommodation - 'The Bath House' and 'The Court yard' - we LOVED the interlinking rooms).

                We married finally in September 2021! No postponements, just our chosen date!

                What a day!! We had constant communication prior to the wedding (nothing was too much trouble) and the day ran unbelievably
                smoothly! The staff were on point and so lovely!

                Our guests were wowed by the venue and scenery and the weather happened to be gorgeous (just a little windy). The food was
                incredible, amazing choice options, nice and hot and very tasty!

                We truly couldn’t have asked for any more. We had a singer in the day and a band on the evening which complimented this
                stunning venue so well.

                All we can say is thank you! Thank you for making our wedding dreams come true and feel so effortless!

                On a final note, anyone considering the accommodation; do it!!... We had 48 of us staying within the two houses and it just
                added to the wedding! Everyone was so happy, we had the best time at the wedding, breakfast the next morning and then a day
                crabbing down the beach before checking out the day after! Absolutely everyone who stayed commented on how they are so
                glad they did and it meant the wedding ‘hype’ lasted that bit longer and brought a big group of people closer!"

"First of all, thank you so much for creating this dreamlike venue, it was a no brainer when selecting the location for our
                wedding day and boy did it deliver. Tunnels Beaches literally had everything we could have hoped for and more, it is mysterious,
                unique and has utterly breathtaking views of the beaches and the sea.

                We were incredibly lucky that our day had clear blue skies and allowed the venue to shine, not to mention being able to watch the
                most incredible sunset. We and all of our guests were completely bowled over, no-one has been able to stop talking about it since!

                Thank you for all of your quick and helpful responses running up to and on the day, it was great to know that everything we had
                prepared was all in hand, and all we needed to do was turn up! The day ran smoothly thanks to all the amazing and friendly staff.
                The food completely lived up to the hype, it was delicious and we loved the fact the guests could pick exactly what they wanted.
                Everyone loved the paella in the evening as well.

                It truly was the most perfect day and we are so glad we chose Tunnels Beaches!"

                and enjoying a delicious Paella cooked for us all the night before the wedding to our amazing wedding day.

                Every single thing went to plan, the staff were absolutely incredible with keeping in touch on the day as well as answering any
                questions we had leading up to the wedding.

                We couldn't recommend the Tunnels enough, if we could do it all again we would in a heartbeat!"

"Thank you so much to the entire team at Tunnels Beaches for helping us create our dream wedding. The entire process from
                start to finish was relaxed and easy, even with a pandemic thrown in!

                The venue itself is stunning and to be able to get married with the most breathtaking view behind you is beyond special.
                We chose the Gourmet BBQ and we're so glad we did! All of our guests loved it and it really catered for all food tastes.

                The team were helpful, friendly and made the day run smoothly. The communication leading up to the wedding was great as well,
                any questions we had were quickly answered.

                We had the most incredible day... Everyone loved it and haven't stopped talking about it since! We would highly recommend
                Tunnels Beaches as a wedding venue, you won't regret booking it!"

"Firstly and most importantly, Elliott and I want to say a gigantic thank you to each and every member of staff at Tunnels Beaches!
                All the way from viewing the venue, booking, correspondence back and fourth with all of my worries, our accommodation and our
                actual wedding day... the staff were incredible throughout!
 
                We stayed in 'The Woodlands' on site for 3 nights and were so glad that we did! It meant that both mine and Elliotts families could
                be together before, during and after the wedding. Having the night there after also felt like our wedding day wasn't just one day,
                it felt spread out over the three.

                We opted for our own package and chose the food that we thought would accommodate all of our guests and still to this day, over
                two months later... our friends and relatives are still talking about the food! It was absolutely amazing!

                Our wedding co-ordinator on the day was so kind, polite and helpful and made sure the order of the day went perfectly.

                Elliott and I chose our ceremony time as 13:00, as we wanted to spend as much time at the venue as possible and we are so glad
                we did! We celebrated from 13:00 until 02:00am! 

                We cannot recommend this venue enough and our wedding day was better than we could have ever dreamed of."

"Tunnels is hands down the most incredible wedding venue, the views are insane! After having our wedding postponed, it was
                definitely worth the wait!

                The staff are incredible, they have thought about every tiny detail - so you need not worry. They will also make you feel completely
                relaxed, they are the experts, there will be no stress! Having a venue that supplies everything, will genuinely make your life a lot
                easier!

                The food is also absolutely fantastic, 4 months later my friends and family are still talking about it! You will not be disappointed
                with this venue, I have nothing but good things to say, the venue, food, views and staff are just awesome."

"I’m trying to find the words to show my gratitude to you, but for the first time in my life it seems I am speechless!!
                However I will try....

                When we booked your venue it was raining and cold in the winter and even on that blustery day we thought well we love it now
                so it will be amazing on the big day and so the journey began. The madness of 2020 began and we had a false start and your
                support made us feel incredibly lucky when we understood the hardship you and others in our situation were facing. You handled
                the postponement with incredible compassion and calmness and we are thankful in itself for that.

                No one could imagine the stress that was to come and again your continued attention to communication was second to none and
                put us at ease at every stressful unknown turn.

                Then it was true ... it was happening for us!
                There is nothing we would change about our experience with you and your venue. What you do at Tunnels Beaches is second to none.

                Let’s start with the accommodation... our guests were blown away as we were too when we first viewed it! We hired 'The Bath
                House' and 'The Courtyard' and everyone was comfortable and we enjoyed the space over the 3 days with Paella on the first day
                and BBQ on the last evening. The decor and attention to detail is mind blowing. I wanted to see everyone’s reaction and did
                about 20 tours on the first day and was exhausted haha, but it was soooo worth it to see their faces!

                Ok, next.. THE BIG DAY!
                You are a well oiled machine and even though we were aware of other weddings taking place on other days it didn’t encroach on
                our privacy and you certainly have every detail covered, but let me say that your staff are the most attentive and warm bunch
                of humans. They are a credit to you... I didn’t get all their names but I would like to say a special thanks to Jacs - you are amazing!
                Maribel - who was waiting with canapés when I came off the beach because she didn’t want me to miss them (a sure way to my
                heart)! Rebecca - an absolute legend who looked after every single one of us and dealt with my demands graciously and perfectly.
                To all the others who may remain nameless you all hold a special place in my heart!

                To Jamie, Tanya and Catherine keep doing what you do it’s perfection.

                Right... THE FOOD! Whaaaaaaaat can I say about that??? I don’t quite know how to say it so I will quote our guests ...
                “This is the best wedding food I’ve ever had” and “Wow this wedding food is insane”... amongst other things along those lines
                all with mouths full of the tastiest food known to man... I think that should cover that! Thank you Chef and all the other staff
                who made that possible.

                So now we have returned and I am on cloud ninety nine ... Thank you for having us in your slice of heaven in Devon. We hold you
                in our hearts forever and we will be back soon to see you all!

                If anyone reads this and and are still unsure about whether this place is for them... let me tell you all... it IS! Don’t miss out on
                having your wedding here! It’s out of this world!"
                We love you. Kimmy & Russ Moreland

"A day of Dreams…
                Firstly what a stunning place Tunnels Beaches is, a breathtaking backdrop for our Wedding - we consider ourselves lucky
                to have been able to have our special day here. From the start, communication from Jamie and his staff has been excellent.
                All arrangements for the day were sorted efficiently, calmly and with a 'nothing's too much trouble' approach, I mean these
                guys are on it!

                Gosh the food, so much choice we found it hard to limit! The whole day we felt truly looked after, the staff were so attentive
                even offering to drive some stranded guests home!

                Stunning location, breathtaking views, fabulous team, amazing food! Thank you for making our day… perfect!"

"We couldn’t have chosen a better wedding venue! Everyone at Tunnels Beaches made the whole process of organising
                (and re-organising) a wedding during a pandemic with a newborn as relaxed and stress-free as it could be.

                The location is truly special. Walking out of the tunnel to be faced with that view of the sea takes your breath away.
                Oh and the food… our guests are still talking about how amazing it was!"

"Thank you so so much to your whole team for the most perfect wedding day and also the best wedding weekend staying at
                your beautiful accommodation at the venue. Our family and friends are still talking about it and everyone has said it was the
                best wedding they’ve ever been to! From start to finish everything ran so smoothly and I do believe that the relaxing vibe
                your team give really helped me relax and feel at ease the whole day. We couldn’t have asked for more with how attentive
                and reassuring the team were with any last minute questions we had.

                The accommodation is absolutely stunning and our guests that stayed there have all asked if we can do a holiday there again
                as it was so nice! I would recommend staying there to anyone as it meant we could have a whole wedding weekend of fun
                without worrying about having to travel anywhere else and the location is perfect.

                The food was one of the main topics of conversation from our guests, it was the most delicious food. We are not quite over
                how tasty it was and the paella in the evening was the best we’ve ever had!

                The venue itself is the most beautiful and different venue you’ll ever find. We were planning on having a wedding abroad but
                due to covid we decided to look closer to home and WOW… This venue ticked all the boxes and more and we believe that it
                was meant to be (especially as the restrictions were lifted just before our wedding!). It felt like a holiday and we had a lot of
                people messaging since, asking what country we got married in. Guests and ourselves have already been recommending the
                venue to other friends and family!

                From the day we booked the venue right up until the day we sadly had to leave the accommodation your team were so helpful
                and always on hand - responding quickly to any questions we had. Thank you again, we are forever grateful to you all for
                creating the most perfect and magical wedding day my husband and I could have ever dreamed of.

                We will definitely be back to visit Tunnels Beaches for anniversaries and holidays to reminisce about the best day."
                Many thanks, Lauren & Will

"As I work in the wedding industry we were really looking for a very unique & uncomparable venue to host our wedding, and after
                a long search we knew Tunnels Beaches was for us as soon as we laid eyes on it.

                The backdrop is dramatic, and like no other, so we especially loved the cascading glass bifolds so that you could soak in the views
                no matter what the weather decided to do on our special day.

                Our day with the venue was very laid back which really suited us, and the day just flowed beautifully from one event to the next.
                It truly felt so special to have Tunnels all to ourselves for the day. The food is still the talk of our guests, alongside our epic silent
                disco DJ 'The wedding spinner'.

                We absolutely had the time of our lives, and we couldn't thank the staff at Tunnels Beaches enough for making it look so effortless.
                Thank you for having us, and for being so accommodating throughout the tough times of Covid."
                Sending our best wishes, Mr & Mrs Drury

"We only needed to visit Tunnels Beaches once to realise it was the venue for us. The sea views are spectacular and the venues
                attention to detail with décor is perfect. With COVID we were unable to visit again until the wedding and we had our concerns,
                but every step of the way the wedding co-ordinators put our mind at ease and reassured us. I emailed them so many times with
                questions that came to mind, no matter how trivial they were we always got a hasty response!

                On arrival our guests were blown away with their accommodation and the location of Tunnels, we hired all 3 houses for close
                friends and family to make a mini-holiday. We had a paella dish provided by Tunnels the night before and this was delicious
                - huge portions and plenty of chunky fish.

                Tanya was brilliant on the day of the wedding, she was on the ball and we didn't have to worry about a thing! Initially we were
                disappointed that they made the decision to have the ceremony inside, but they knew best, half way through the vows the
                heavens opened and thankfully the registrar was the only person who got a little wet!! Thankfully the sky cleared after the
                ceremony and the sun came out, the Tunnels staff were flexible to adapt to the weather and this allowed us to enjoy drinks
                out on the front terrace.

                We picked the BBQ for guests and it was soooo good!!! Plenty of food, suitable for children, vegetarians, vegans and fussy
                eaters. The ice-cream tricycle was then a great choice for deserts, it allowed people to have their pudding once dinner had
                settled after speeches.

                Overall, Tunnels has given us unforgettable memories for our special day - we are so thankful for all of the support the staff
                provided us 2 years prior to the wedding and even afterwards with lost property being left at the venue!"

"Thank you so so much to the whole team at Tunnels Beaches. We got married in July 2021, postponed from August 2020
                (due to pandemic!) I have to say, the process of changing the date and everything running up to our new day was done at ease
                without any stress.

                The wedding day was everything we had dreamed of and more. The venue speaks for itself (breathtaking) and the staff were
                wonderful - so helpful and kind, they couldn’t do enough for us! - They even filmed us on our iPad walking back up the isle after
                just getting married - that was a wonderful little surprise to find!

                I could not have wished for a more perfect day. We picked the best venue and had the best staff to help us throughout the whole
                process - I genuinely cannot thank you all enough for making our day what it was. The food was incredible, our guests have said
                it was the best wedding food they have ever tasted.

                10/10, wonderful place - I only wish I could do it all again. Thank you Tunnels Beaches for the most perfect day of our lives."

"Tunnels Beaches really offer a turn key solution to weddings. We arrived to a day that was well planned, delivered and offered
                flexibility around our newborn baby and need for a swim after the meal. The food was sublime and plentiful - recommend
                the Monkfish & Prawn skewers! Mafia 4 (band) and Yeti Photography are the only improvement to this venue, which we were
                fortunate enough to have.

                In a year of cancelled weddings we've really seen the true motivations of businesses - Tunnels have shown compassion,
                understanding and been so great with communication throughout the pandemic. We're lucky to have had the days there that
                we did and hope all our friends get married there so we can revisit!"

"Our wedding at Tunnels Beaches was extraordinary. It is the most perfect venue, we only saw this venue and knew straight
                away it was for us. The setting is so beautiful and coastal and the vibe is relaxing and personal but with great food - what
                more could you ask for?!

                We had to delay our wedding twice due to Covid and Jamie was exceptional, always understanding, reasonable and available
                to contact anytime. In the lead up to the big and final day it was all so relaxed with the Tunnels and on the day everything ran
                so smoothly. The team were on hand all the time for anything we needed but to be honest they had thought of most things
                first anyway! All the team want is for you to have the best day and your way, they were incredibly flexible and there was not
                a single stress for either my husband or I.

                I cannot recommend the team and the venue enough, if you are considering booking Tunnels Beaches, I can tell you it is definitely
                worth it. We had the most amazing day and neither of us would change a single thing, plus we have the most gorgeous photos
                and memories to reflect back on. I would also highly recommend Pumpkin and Pye for flowers and These Wild Souls for photography,
                every person involved in our day including suppliers and the venue were spectacular.

                We will hold Tunnels Beaches as such a special place in our lives and can't wait to go back to visit in the future."

"We always knew we wanted a venue that offered something different and when they say something takes your breath away
                there’s no denying that! Having fallen in love with Tunnels Beaches on our first visit we were keen to secure a date, it was
                almost lucky that there wasn’t any availability until Summer 2021.

                With it being a very up and down year and not knowing 100% if our wedding day could go ahead we had constant reassurance
                from Jamie and his team who were always quick to respond to our emails. On the day the team were on hand to help our friends
                with the set up, and were extremely attentive and friendly throughout.

                The day itself was more than perfect, we were so lucky to have glorious sunshine, we had so many people ask if we’d got married
                abroad! We were all blown away by the delicious food, so many of our guests went up for seconds and even thirds! It was a bit of
                a blur after the meal as we were both very merry, but somehow the team still ensured it all ran like clockwork.

                It truly was an unforgettable day, we just wish we could do it all over again - perhaps we will one day!"

"Waw, well, what can we say?! We want to express our utmost thanks to the whole team at Tunnels Beaches for giving us
                the most incredible wedding of a lifetime!

                From the very first communication we had with Jamie and his team, email responses were almost instantaneous and were
                very obliging; fitting us in for visits at awkward times around our jobs.

                The venue itself, it goes without saying, is totally stunning. Every little detail had been thought out to make our day flow
                smoothly and effortlessly. We went for the Luxe package, and the rumours are completely true… the food is exquisite!
                We are still getting comments six months later about how good the food was! I highly recommend the monkfish & tiger prawn
                skewers and the steaks - cooked fresh off the barbie onto your plate - a really cool touch! But everything was absolutely delicious.

                We had our heart set on having a Ceilidh by the sea, and the venue were so thoughtful and determined to make it happen for us!
                The end result was totally brilliant, we had our Ceilidh on the terrace as the sun set over the sea, it was like something out of
                a movie.

                We would like to say a special thank you to Jamie, Catherine and Tanya who, throughout the pandemic, have had to deal with
                several fraught emails, questions and zoom calls from ourselves and our anxious parents. We would like to thank you all again
                for all your time and help in finally making our magical day happen.

                We cannot recommend this beautiful venue enough, it is by far the most spectacular venue in this country - maybe the world!-
                and you will have the best, most awesome day of your lives!"
                Tonnes of love, from Hannah & Guto

"Friday the 9th July 2021 at Tunnels Beaches was the day we dreamed of and more!...

                Our wedding had to be cancelled in July 2020 because of the Covid Pandemic - as you can imagine we were both heart broken.
                We had a chat with Jamie who has been truly fantastic all the way through and so very supportive! His words were "don’t worry,
                let's see what we can do"... and within a few hours we had our new date set! I just couldn’t believe how amazing the team were
                and yet it was so incredibly stressful for them too.

                Our day ran from start to finish so incredibly smoothly - the staff were fabulous and the food was divine! All the guests commented.
                As a bride, we tend to stress quite a lot, however I can reassure all future brides that you have no need to worry - Tunnels are
                so accommodating and go above and beyond to ensure you have your dream wedding.

                The days goes quickly so embrace and enjoy!.. Myself and Walt would love to do it all again (in fact we are planning to in 10 years!)
                See you all at Tunnels Beaches soon, we will be back!!"

"Where to start? Joe found Tunnels Beaches online when researching ‘relaxed wedding venue’; we made the visit and didn’t
                bother looking anywhere else (you know when you know, right?)

                From booking and all the way up to the day was such a super chilled process, nothing was an issue, all questions answered
                and super quick responses.

                We booked The Woodlands accommodation to make more out of the time, and wow was that worth it. The place was flawless,
                with all details considered. A bathroom for every bedroom just made the experience perfect for those who wanted some chill
                time outside of the communal fun. Having the accommodation for three days spread out all the celebrations which was so lovely.
 
                I am still pretty astonished at how incredible the wedding day was; quite lost for words, but I’ll give it a go…

                Firstly, the team are absolutely brilliant; their energy, friendliness, professionalism, and loveliness added to the brilliant
                atmosphere of the day. They really took amazing care of Joe & I, so attentive, thinking of things I wouldn’t have even
                considered, which made the day flow so well; nothing was an issue.

                The venue. I mean… just wait till you see it. To have your own private escape, nestled away in the incredible coast of Ilfracombe.
                We were lucky enough to have sunny weather and our guests felt like they were on a day trip to Italy. Regardless of weather,
                we visited the venue in October on a drizzly day and were still buzzing at the venue and beautiful set up. The brilliant thing
                about Tunnels is that the view is your decoration, you honestly don’t need anything more than the jaw dropping views of the
                coast. Still can’t actually get over how beautiful it is.

                For all you foodies out there, the gourmet BBQ is TO DIE FOR! The selection is so good; only problem was trying not to choose
                everything. Everyone loved it; who doesn’t love a BBQ? Tunnels were so accommodating for veggies and vegans too, every
                dietary requirement is considered. We went for the pasties in the evening, and what a flipping delight- best pasties EVER!
                Finally, for the night after the wedding, we had a Thai green curry cooked for the house which was just so delicious. The quality
                of all the food was so on point.

                We are still so buzzing that we got to get married at Tunnels, it was everything we wanted and more. Just a huge thank you
                again to you and all your team, they are all phenomenal."

"We are so glad that we found our perfect venue! We were looking for somewhere by the coast, with a relaxed vibe and as soon
                as we visited Tunnels Beaches (in the middle of a storm in November!) we knew this was the one.

                The whole weekend went wonderfully smoothly, the accommodation at 'The Woodlands' and the catering the evening before the
                wedding was all fantastic.

                The staff at Tunnels really are incredible, everything had been thought of and on the day we both felt very relaxed and reassured
                that everything was in hand. The staff went above and beyond several times for us and for the guests to make sure that everyone
                had a great time. So many people have since told us how great the food was – it really was! Every detail had been thought of and
                displayed beautifully.

                Tunnels Beaches – honestly – what a stunning venue. The view is breath-taking everywhere you go and the pictures reflect it. We
                are so happy that we chose Tunnels and we’d definitely recommend the venue to others."

"After having our wedding in Italy postponed twice, we were so unbelievably lucky to have such an incredible venue like
                Tunnels Beaches step in and save the day.

                Everything from arrival was absolutely perfect. The view that hits you as you leave the tunnels into the venue itself was stunning,
                and having the luxury of your own private beach on your wedding day is such a wow factor, which makes for some incredible
                pictures. It really did feel like we had our own destination wedding in such a unique location. For us, it was absolutely perfect.

                The gourmet BBQ was incredible (as were the canapés & drinks) but what really made this an even more special day for us was
                just how lovely and attentive all of the staff were to us and our guests. They really did go the extra mile to make sure everyone
                was catered for and nothing was too much trouble.

                We also stayed at the on site accomodation which we would highly recommend. It was a luxurious stay and so good for spending
                time with guests before and after the wedding (including the amazing Paella cooked by the Tunnels Beaches Chefs). Considering
                how close you are to the Beaches it felt very private and tucked away, and was the perfect addition to our incredible wedding
                experience at Tunnels Beaches."

"Our wedding day was an absolute dream! Everything we could ever have wished for and more! And the sunset - just wow!!
                Thank you so much - we love everything about Tunnels Beaches!

                It is an amazing secluded venue set right on a private beach, in fact you couldn't get any closer to sea! From the moment we
                first viewed it we knew it was very special and perfect for us. We first viewed Tunnels Beaches on a freezing cold, grey, wintery
                day, and even with that weather it had an amazing feel to it, being by the water's edge is so atmospheric - the venue is truly
                spectacular!

                The staff at Tunnels Beaches are fantastic and made organising our wedding day very easy (both the first and the second time
                - thanks Covid!) All of the staff were so friendly and helpful on the day, our guests were blown away by Tunnels! The food is
                incredible, our family and friends have not stopped raving about the food - especially the Paella!

                We staying in the beautifully decorated house The Courtyard, which is perfect for pre or post wedding gatherings. The Courtyard
                is right next to Tunnels Beaches and so convenient, especially for a quick wedding day dip in the tidal pool!

                Tunnels Beaches is the perfect wedding venue, we are longing for the day we are invited as guests to a wedding at Tunnels so we
                can enjoy it all over again!"

"What an amazing venue! If you are looking for a stunning venue with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff this is the place
                to have your wedding. We wanted a laid back wedding by the sea and Tunnel Beaches did not disappoint!

                We booked 'The Woodlands' accommodation, which is a modern, spacious and light place to stay. Having the accommodation
                for three days was perfect to allow friends and family to catch up and get to know one another.

                The wedding was incredible. The views, drinks and food exceeded our expectations! With our guests still telling us how amazing
                the day was and always mentioning the food! We loved that the venue is exclusive and there is a private beach. We also hired
                the garden games set, which was such a good laugh!

                We really cannot recommend this wedding venue enough, if we could do it all again we would in a heartbeat! Huge thank you
                to all the staff at Tunnels Beaches for giving us such an amazing day that we will never forget!"

                day and night, a better team of people around us and a better venue. The staff that work at your venue are a credit to you,
                they were wonderful and relaxed and all of our guest commented on how wonderful they were. They were helpful, attentive
                and just lovely.

                The setting for our venue was unbelievable! We are honestly going to live on cloud nine for the rest of our lives!

                I am never going to be able to say thank you enough! But thank you for allowing us to have our wedding here! Our guests
                were actually taken aback by the beauty around them."

"We just wanted to send a very heartfelt 'Thank You' for all that you did in making our wedding feel so relaxed and magical.
                We felt like we were just carried through the day on a cloud where everyone around us made sure the right things were
                happening at the right time and we were totally unawares. As a result we spent the day so relaxed and happy, & we think
                that shows in the awesome photos we got. 

                All our guests were blown away with the venue - and the food! Every single person commented about how good the food was,
                adding that they felt so bad not finishing it but they were simply too full! I especially felt guilty not finishing it when I'd made
                a special request for Paneer Curry... it was absolutely delicious... the dress just wouldn't allow any more... but most days I do
                think 'I'd like to finish that curry now!'

                Thank you for being so responsive, attentive and accommodating, both in the run up and on the day. Definitely one of the
                best decisions we've ever made getting married at Tunnels Beaches!

                Good luck with the continued success of the venue. We look forward to being in the vicinity again when we come back for
                future anniversaries…"

"We just wanted to write you and thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day such a wonderful experience.
                We were due to elope at the Tunnels in April but couldn't travel due to the restrictions so you kindly worked with us to find
                a new date at the end of May. The day was perfect from start to finish, your staff were amazing, friendly, proactive and
                were on top of everything. The venue was beautiful and the views took our breath away (one guest actually cried when she
                first saw it).

                Every email was answered within hours, every request or idea was welcomed. We simply cannot fault a single thing and if
                we had to go back and start planning it all again we would not do one thing differently. You gave myself, Stuart and our guests
                such a wonderful and unique experience which we will remember and treasure for the rest of our lives.

                Thank you again from all us Richardsons and our guests."

"Just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for helping to make sure we had an amazing day. Everything went so well,
                from the rain stopping just before so we could get married outside, to the amazing food and attentive staff. We were so happy
                to be able to go ahead and get married at your beautiful venue after having to postpone last year, it really is the most special
                location. We had an amazing day with our family and close friends and wouldn't have changed a thing.

                It's just a dream venue and we would love to return one day. Wishing you all the best and hope things are properly back to
                normal for you all soon..."

"We were due to get married last October at Tunnels Beaches, but were postponed to April 2021 due to Covid. Unfortunately,
                restrictions meant that we had to postpone our April date too. However, we really wanted to get the legal stuff out of the way,
                and Jamie and his team were so accommodating of this! They volunteered their venue as our elopement venue, and we were
                able to say our vows with our best friend and our children by our side. Jamie and his team have been so lovely and helpful.
                With everything going on they’ve remained friendly, positive and understanding - even when late night stress emails were fired
                their way.

                Our elopement was beautiful, the venue is just divine, and we were so grateful to have had the opportunity to say ‘I do’ to such
                a sensational backdrop. How lucky are we to have something so gorgeous on our doorstep!! We are so excited that we get to have
                Tunnels again for our ‘big wedding’ in October - everyone who has seen our photos or video have commented on how gorgeous
                the venue is and we agree!

                Thank you so much Jamie and the girls. You took a stressful, uncertain situation and turned it into something magical for us.
                We are now counting down the days until we get to do it all again with you, and our family and friends! Thank you, thank you,
                thank you!!"

"Tunnels Beaches is one of North Devons hidden treasures. From the moment we walked through the Tunnels entrance and into
                the tunnel itself we knew we had found a very special place. Walking out of the first tunnel, to the private hidden away venue
                in the rocks - with its own private beach, was such a WOW factor!! So beautiful and peaceful with views of natural stunning
                scenery. It's an amazing backdrop and very atmospheric hearing the waves so close.

                The venue and its surroundings are meticulously kept and are so unique. The staff provided professionalism every step of the
                way - before, during and after our wedding.

                We had such an amazing experience at Tunnels Beaches for our Elopement wedding. Truly very magical in a way in which we
                will never forget. We only decided to get married in September 2020 and planning from start to finish was within 3 months.
                We were so very lucky to have had our special day in December 2020 during the Covid-19 Pandemic and between lockdowns.

                The team were fantastic - the whole experience was so relaxed and easy and their expertise in what they do best showed.

                Whether choosing an intimate elopement, or a fully blown wedding with 120 guests, I can't imagine a more romantic setting.
                Thank you, it was a stress free experience for a very nervous bride to be."

"Planning a wedding in a pandemic was something no bride could prepare for. Nick and I were truly gutted when we had to
                postpone our 'big wedding' to the following year. But in a world full of uncertainty we were certain we still wanted to get married.
                That's when we found Tunnels Beaches, and although it was 280 miles away we fell in love.

                After booking a full wedding at another venue, I wasn't sure what to expect but within a few emails and lots of amazing advice
                on the local area, we were booked in!

                The team were so accommodating to us especially with it being booked a little over a month before our date! On the day we felt
                welcomed, well informed and looked after. The first time I saw the venue was walking through the tunnel and seeing Nick waiting
                there for me, It was so much better than any of the photos, I felt like I was in a movie. The moody weather weirdly made the day
                even more perfect. The venue, although big, felt intimate with just the two of us and our dog!

                Choosing to elope in such uncertain times was for sure meant to be! My only regret in life is that we had already committed to
                our original venue as Tunnels Beaches would have been the perfect venue for 'I Do : Part Two' with all our guests!"

"We first viewed Tunnels Beaches before the pandemic and fell in love. The views, location and elopement package were exactly
                what we wanted. Due to the lockdown restrictions we had to re-arrange the date, but the staff were so accommodating and even
                let us add 2 more guests (we had 6 altogether). Even our dog was allowed at the venue which made our day extra special!

                It was truly the most wonderful day of our lives. Everything went to plan thanks to the great organisation from the staff and the
                photographs show you how stunning the venue is. We could not have wished for a better day."

"We were originally meant to get married at the venue in April 2020, but unfortunately this couldn't go ahead due to the
                Coronavirus pandemic. We still wanted to have our wedding at Tunnels Beaches due to how beautiful the venue was, it was
                just a matter of when with the ongoing uncertainty.

                Later in the year we booked the elopement option at short notice for September. The day felt intimate, relaxed and the sun
                was shining for us so we had the ceremony outside. Though we sadly weren't able to have all of our family and friends there
                as originally planned we still had a very special day.

                We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tunnels Beaches as a wedding venue. The team dealt with an unprecedented situation very
                professionally and couldn't help enough to get us happily married. We can't wait to visit again on our holidays to Ilfracombe."

                Our day was everything we wanted it to be and more we cannot thank you enough. The venue is so beautifully decorated which
                was a great added bonus to us as an elopement package."

"We searched for a wedding venue for months and months. We could never find anything that had the relaxed, laid back vibe
                that we wanted, in a beautiful location and with organised staff we felt we could trust with our special day. Then we went to
                Tunnels Beaches! Everything about it was perfect from the moment we first saw it. Being from South Wales, we didn't really
                have any connection to the location but we were drawn to it's coastal beauty and the incredible setting. We loved that you could
                stay on site (we stayed in The Courtyard), it really made a weekend of the whole occasion and we got to spend extra special
                time with our closet friends and family.

                We got married in Nov. 2019, even though it was a very wet and windy weekend the dramatic coastline and beautiful venue
                was still absolutely perfect. It's stunning inside and out, we barely had to decorate, the views speak for themselves. We had
                about 60 guests and the venue felt both intimate and full. The staff at Tunnels cannot do enough for you, they are so
                attentive and supportive but also give you space to do your own thing. We viewed so many venues that projected their view
                of what our wedding should be on us, and we never experienced this with Tunnels, they were so great. They were very helpful
                on the lead up to the wedding, replying to countless (I am sure annoying!) emails due to my bridal nerves, putting my mind
                at ease and always having the answers. They were helpful when we arrived and on the day of the wedding, always on hand
                and so welcoming. They even helped us manage our playlists and music.

                Special mention - The food was EPIC. People still talk to us about how incredible the food was. They even got in a special
                request flavour of ice cream for us. I hope we get invited to another wedding there because next time, I'm taking tupperware
                and bringing that delicious food home!!

                Thank you Tunnels. We are so grateful."

"My husband and I visited the North Devon coast every year and had looked at the Tunnels Beaches website a number of times,
                thinking about the future. During an annual visit to the coast in 2018, we decided to view a couple of venues, deciding
                unequivocally that Tunnels was definitely the venue for us to get married... Finally (after 13 years)!

                Looking back on our wedding day now and the process of planning the wedding with Tunnels, was the most stress-free experience,
                completely contradicting what I thought it would be. Jamie, Catherine and Tanya made the planning process so easy, efficient
                and straightforward, clearly coming from a place of knowing exactly what they are doing.

                The day itself, of course flew by so quickly, but went by without fault and in our eyes was more perfect than we ever could have
                expected. The Tunnels team ensured that our requirements were met and we didn't have to worry about a thing, even with our
                4 1/2 and 2 1/2 year old children running around.

                The venue and its setting are so unique, beautiful, relaxed and of course unpredictable... By this I mean the weather and seascape.
                We married on 31st October 2019, therefore there was no guarantee of good weather but we never worried about this because
                the setting is so dramatic and changeable and this is part of the charm of the place and the reason why we love the area.

                The food was amazing, everyone wished they could have eaten more, the staff were amazing and our day was perfect, we can't
                wait to come back and re-live our memories of the day."

"We never dreamed we would find a wedding venue as perfect as Tunnels Beaches. The moment we walked into the venue we
                knew it was the only place we wanted to get married. The stunning view was just the start. Amazing as it is, the venue, the staff,
                the attention to detail, everything, was just perfect and the combination of all that and the relaxed vibe and AMAZING food
                meant we had more than the day we could imagine.

                The day ran so smoothly and effortlessly. Our guests were really impressed with everything. The team at Tunnels have it nailed.
                Jacs and her staff were fantastic. It was a beautiful, beautiful day. We hope to return to renew our vows and honestly can’t wait
                to do so.

                Thanks for an unforgettable day, guys. We won’t ever forget it."

"My wife taught me to surf at Woolacombe beach in Sep 2017, we got engaged at the same spot in Dec 2017! In excitement
                of the day we looked up outdoor UK venues to get married; Tunnels Beaches was listed 5 miles away - it was the first and only
                place we visited. We booked immediately. There is something truly magnificent about Tunnels and those who have had their
                wedding there or been to someone’s there will know exactly what we mean! The location is down right stunning - think ultra-cool
                venue meets ‘Bond Lair’ and you are some way there.

                Despite Yellow weather warnings and torrential rain on the day until 45 mins before the ceremony, Tunnels management and
                experience meant we got to get married outside (of course everything was prepp’d in case of a last minute change)! Every guest
                has commented (and some still do) that it was the best wedding ever - we would of course say that - but it was down to the
                overall professionalism of the entire team at Tunnels - cleaners to chefs and beyond.

                The food is something they really pride themselves on and they should! Again our guests still mention it... and one mother wishes
                there were more photos of the food too!

                The venue has so much to offer and you will struggle to find anything more unique - you can see that from the photos - but Tunnels
                is the entire team! From Jamie and Catherine who helped us pull it all together to Jacs who delivered on the day. The whole day
                ran like clockwork without us or even the wider bridal party having to worry about a thing! Nothing was ever too much, everything
                was pre-empted and they would always try and accommodate requests within their bounds. Our photographer (Robin Goodlad)
                and florist (Sweet Williams) are all Tunnels recommendations and helped make our day the best ever!

                The venue, the accommodation, the service - everything is simply outstanding! Our best day ever with the most fantastic memories!"
                Much love, Gregg & Row

"We chose Tunnels Beaches for our wedding in October 2019. It's the first wedding venue we visited and we did not view any
                others. It's a breathtaking venue.

                I happen to be a wedding photographer - and over the decades have visited many lovely wedding venues across the UK and abroad.
                I have never been to a wedding venue and felt as special as Tunnels made us both feel. Their attention to detail, knowledge and
                professionalism is the best I have ever come across. Nothing was a problem to any of the amazing people who work there. The
                entire team at Tunnels Beaches made us feel totally at ease with any requests/questions we had... We always knew we were in
                safe hands.

                As for the day itself - it was awesome and exceeded our expectations. The food was incredible and guests are still commenting
                on it was the best and most unique wedding they had been too. We cannot wait to share our wedding photos when we receive
                them with our amazing venue. Thanks so much - to Jamie, Tanya, Catherine and the entire team for helping us create one of
                the most memorable days that we will treasure forever!"

"We drove past the entrance to Tunnels Beaches years ago and it always stuck in our minds, but we never got the chance to go in.
                We took a chance and booked without ever seeing the venue, and we were not disappointed!

                Tunnels was absolutely everything we could have hoped for in a venue - the relaxed atmosphere, stunning scenery and excellent
                service from start to finish. The team were on hand and guided us through the planning process so it was incredibly easy and we
                never had to experience any wedding stress in the lead up even though we were living on the other side of the world (New Zealand).

                The day was perfect, and our guests were in love with the scenery - they finally understood why we had booked a venue so far away!
                They were blown away by the food especially, we heard so many times over that it was the best wedding food they had ever had!

                Booking the accommodation for the weekend was really the icing on the cake, and meant that we could spend those precious extra
                days with our nearest and dearest, celebrating the best weekend of our lives. Thank you Team Tunnels for giving us the wedding
                of our dreams!"

                everyone was so organised, calm, patient and effortlessly polite (probably all the things I wasn't on the day hahaha!)

                The food was INCREDIBLE - I completely mis-timed having my dress tightened! Our guests are still talking about the day even
                now and have all commented how wonderful the team, the food, the venue and the sunset all were. You were right about the
                cheese - Simon and I are still working our way through it and it's delicious!

                I genuinely had the best day of my life so I really cant thank you enough for making that happen so seamlessly and without issue.
                You've got a fab crew who are a real asset to your business. We'll most definitely be back to visit!..."

"When we got engaged we knew straight away that we wanted to get married near the beach, so after a little research we
                booked viewings at our two favourites, the first being Tunnels Beaches and the second a venue in Ibiza (fearing the worst of
                the British weather!). However, from the second we walked into Tunnels on a cold and overcast day in March we fell in love
                with it, and both said that if we hadn't booked our flights to Ibiza we wouldn't have even bothered going!

                Our wedding day was like a dream come true and we loved every second! We did luck out with the weather (sunny and 20°C
                in the middle of September!), but even without that you just can't fault the beautiful venue, which speaks for itself and the
                amazing staff that make it what it is. They were always on hand to answer any questions we had and went above and beyond
                both before and on the wedding day, nothing was ever too much trouble.

                And then the incredible houses, we booked The Courtyard and The Bath House, which meant all of our family and close friends
                could stay with us on and around the wedding, which was just the icing on the cake.

                We cannot recommend this venue enough, so many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to (and was
                the most amazing wedding food they had ever eaten!) So thank you Tunnels, you are a special place that will always have a
                place in our hearts and has given us memories that will last a lifetime - our only wish is that we could do it all over again!"

"Our experience of Tunnels Beaches from start to finish was simply outstanding. From our first visit to the venue and meeting
                with Jamie we were instantly convinced to hold our wedding day at Tunnels. The venue speaks for itself, the views and quality
                of the setting are unbelievable. Added to that Jamie and the team were so helpful, friendly and accommodating to our random
                questions. Once booked we continued with numerous questions and all were answered straight away with clear information and
                nothing was too much trouble to try and make our day go as we wanted.

                Once the big day arrived The Woodlands house was simply stunning and felt like home straight away. It is so well equipped and
                just beautifully decorated throughout, just to our taste! Our big day was relaxed and informal, but intimate and private, just
                as we wanted. With Jacqui helping to run the timings and ensuring we could enjoy the day, everything ran like clockwork.
                We received so many comments about the venue, not just the views but the different spaces available and probably the most
                about the quality and quantity of the food!!

                The venue is really everything you could ever ask for, we can't thank you enough for helping to make our special day just perfect.
                We look forward to visiting in years to come and wish we could do it all again!!"

"We would like to thank everyone at Tunnels Beaches for making our wedding so magical. It blew our expectations away and really
                was the best day ever. We were very lucky with the weather on the day and this just added to the beautiful scenery. All our guests
                were blown away by the location and many profile pictures were taken that day.

                Our guests are still raving about the food and our families loved staying in The Courtyard for the weekend, which just added an
                extra special touch to the weekend.

                From the moment we booked the venue, communication was fantastic and we were always made to feel at ease and very welcome
                on the several trips to the venue beforehand. The staff were really professional and friendly, they ensured the day flowed well.
                We want to say thank you again and it really was the best day of our lives."

"Tunnels Beaches is one of the most magical places on our planet, it’s a hidden gem, from the road you see a modern property
                and classic columns to this tunnel that leads to the vast views of the ocean and magnificently made building. You can see from
                the photos it’s going to be extraordinary but nothing comes close to when you see it in person.

                Years ago we dreamt of getting married by the sea, with a really relaxed unfussy location with modern accommodation for our
                family and guests and Tunnels ticked every box. We wished for a wedding with an atmosphere, music, delicious food and great
                people and we were lucky enough to get our wish.

                So let’s start with the atmosphere, we were blessed to have magnificent weather on our day to enable us to marry outside,
                Tunnels cater for all the sound requirements during the ceremony so everyone can hear all that gets said alongside the waves
                crashing against the rocks (magical). Then they have a full sound system so if you have a performer for canapés then the
                music travels beautifully around the space so everyone is together, this continues throughout and certainly amplifies when
                it comes to the evening party. Whether you’re dancing outside or inside you are certainly going to have a great night.

                The food, wow a quote from my friend ‘oh my god this food is way better than my own wedding’. We loved the BBQ it’s the
                best way to feed people without any stress, you are catering for everyone with no worries, people can eat as much or as little
                as they want and they are eating what they want. We had so much praise on how colourful, varied and flavoursome the food
                was. It was truly delicious.

                On to drink... My parents gift was to put some money behind the bar and I must admit the guests loved it, a lot of people had
                to travel and pay for accommodation so we thought it would be a nice thank you, well everyone loved it! The drinks package
                was perfect with pimms and beers and then the wine too it lasted all the way until the evening, and the venue were brilliant
                as they saved the bottles after dinner for people to have on the evening too. We were all very merry!

                The staff, well from the booking, to the viewing, to the day, I can’t stress enough how wonderful the process was, we all have
                these silly little questions we want to ask beforehand and so I would build a few up write them on an email and get a reply really
                quickly. My biggest thing was that I’m a bit of a control freak and worried about the day being perfect, the timing of all the
                things I had planned including the entertainment and getting shots of the sunset and guess what the staff just took that onboard
                and I didn’t have to think about a thing, everyone was so helpful, friendly and kind hearted it really was a pleasure dealing with
                everyone at Tunnels Beaches. Big thanks to Catherine, Tanya and Jacs.

                The accommodation (we had 'The Woodlands') is dreamy, modern, super clean and huge; they had weddings before and after our
                day and we didn’t see anyone.

                We genuinely had the best day of our lives, seamless and perfect. Thank you Tunnels Beaches for making such an imprint on our
                lives, we can’t wait to come back..."

"As soon as we visited Tunnels Beaches, Nath and I just looked at each other and we both just knew it was the place to get
                married for us.

                We had the absolute best day ever! I could not fault it. So many of our guests said it was the best wedding that they had ever
                been to! Which is the best compliment and such a lovely thing to be told. The day ran seamlessly and you didn’t even notice
                the team working hard in the background.

                The Tunnels Beaches staff were just incredible from start to finish. The food, the venue and the staff were just fantastic and
                the weather was on our side too! I recommend the monk fish and king prawn skewers (people are still talking to me about
                them even now). The bar staff even joined in dancing behind the bar to our DJ! It was a great moment!

                Thank you Tunnels Beaches for being everything we could have wished for in a wedding venue and so much more. Can we do
                it all again please?!"

"At first, getting married by the beach in the UK felt like a compromise to us. We’d initially considered Ibiza but with a small
                child and large group of friends it simply wasn’t practical. We were so wrong, tying the knot at Tunnels Beaches was everything
                we could have dreamt of and more. The venue set up is stunning, we were lucky to be blessed with September sunshine on the
                day, and when it got a bit windy the blankets available kept the chill off the guests. The views are simply stunning, we could
                have been anywhere in the world and can’t wait to see our photos and relive the day.

                In the lead up to the day, Tanya and the team were excellent, speedy responses to any query and no question was considered silly.
                We rented The Bath House and The Courtyard for the weekend of our wedding which I would highly recommend. Both houses were
                stunning, every room was beautiful - it was better than a boutique hotel and offered us the opportunity to really make a weekend
                of our wedding and enjoy a bit more of North Devon.

                Every testimonial you read raves about the food, we hate to be unoriginal but they are so right. From the canapés (we had scones)
                to the ice-cream, the BBQ to the sausage and bacon baps, everything was fresh and delicious. More than a few of our guests
                commented that it was the best wedding food they had ever had.

                The staff before and during the day were amazing, nothing was too much to ask of them - keeping my stress levels to a minimum.
                Service at the bar was speedy and friendly, despite almost 100 guests to serve. After finding out we were expecting our second
                child a mere fortnight before the wedding, the team helped massively by keeping my gin glass topped up with soda all day and night.
                We opted to have a playlist for our big day, music is a big part of our lives and we wanted to select each and every song - the team
                manned the playlist to the letter for us. Your day is unlikely to pass with no hitch, but any small issues which arose on the day were
                dealt with so quickly and quietly, we were unaware until the following days.

                A huge thank you to the whole team at Tunnels for helping us achieve the wedding day of our dreams!"

"We searched everywhere for a UK beach wedding, Tunnels Beaches was the first venue we looked at and straight away we knew
                it was the perfect place. From the first initial meeting to the actual wedding day, the help and communication has been first class,
                we couldn’t of asked for more, with every fine detail covered.

                On the day itself everything ran smoothly with a lot of help and support from the venue. It did rain during the ceremony which
                meant we had to get married indoors but it didn’t take any shine off the day as the ceremony is as fantastic inside as it is outside
                with an amazing view to look at.

                The food is brilliant and plenty of it. The staff throughout the day were all fantastic and someone was always on hand to help make
                sure everything ran smoothly.

                Guests will definitely not be disappointed by this venue, all our guests were blown away by how unique and beautiful it is."

"Our original plan was to get married in Barbados. By chance we visited Tunnels Beaches after visiting family in Cornwall.
                Tunnels was still in the middle of building The Courtyard. The place was a building site… There and then we booked our
                wedding for the 4th September 2019. After stepping into the venue, looking out at the ocean there was no way we were
                leaving without being in Tunnels' diary. Perfect.

                When we returned almost two years later all accommodation was completed and looked stunning. We hired the three
                properties for three nights and our guests were more than happy.

                Our day was perfect. The staff, the food, could not be faulted. We felt very lucky and it truly was the best three days of our
                lives. It took us nearly 20 years to tie the knot, turns out it was well worth the wait.

                Anyone who asks about our day I simply say 'magical'."

"We first visited Tunnels Beaches on a very cold rainy day in March 2017. We were amazed with the breath taking view from the
                wedding venue and knew it was so unique and unlike any other wedding we had been to before, even in the rain we were sold
                immediately. We wanted the wedding to be a weekend affair and having onsite accommodation was very important to us. When
                we initially booked, the only available accommodation was The Bath House however by the time our wedding was due to come
                round we were informed that there would be two additional houses on site, The Courtyard and The Woodlands. We booked all
                three houses and were able to have 54 guests stay on site.

                Jamie, Tanya and Jacs were so accommodating and allowed us to visit the venue several times prior to the wedding which really
                helped with planning. All of our guests commented on how stunning the accommodation was. We had a pre-wedding party the
                night before our wedding and paid for the Chef to come in to cook paella for everyone, which was delicious!

                We were very lucky with the weather on the day, and were able to get married outside. I cannot express enough how helpful all
                of the staff were on the day, my drink was always topped up and they even carried my dinner plate upstairs for me. The canapés
                and BBQ were gorgeous; I cannot fault a single part of it. The feedback from guests has been amazing.

                I spent months making a playlist for the day and we booked Paul, The Wedding Spinner for the evening. He was fantastic and the
                dance floor was literally full all night!

                To summarise - it was all perfect and I would recommend the venue to anyone. I'm not sure I have ever seen a more beautiful sunset.
                Thank you for making our day so special."

"We fell in love with Tunnels Beaches as soon as we saw it on a rainy November day back in 2017 and unfortunately it was rain
                that greeted us on our wedding day in August as well! The staff at Tunnels were brilliant at reassuring me that the day would
                still be special and they certainly were right! So many guests even commented that they had a better view for the indoor
                ceremony than if it had be outside, which I totally agree with.

                We booked The Courtyard and The Woodlands for the weekend, which really made the whole weekend even more special and
                is something that we definitely recommend. I was so chilled on the morning of the wedding as I had so many of my loved ones
                around me. We had all of our guests back to The Woodlands the day after the wedding for some lunch in the sun! This was
                a brilliant way of ending the celebrations and really took the pressure off trying to get round to speak to everyone on the
                wedding day, which is impossible!

                All of our suppliers were brilliant, Changing Faces for hair and make up – Anna and Sarah made me feel a million dollars! Flowers
                by Natasha at Pumpkin and Pye were stunning. She was brilliant throughout the whole process, I loved our Facetime chats, mainly
                when we got on to talking about cats! She was brilliant on the morning, talking me through the different options because of the
                weather. Amy Sampson captured the wedding beautifully. I completely forgot that she was there, generating some beautifully
                natural shots. Simon Cotter from Willow Films was also great, and a wonderful surprise from my husband to be on the morning
                of the wedding! Both Amy and Simon were happy to brave the weather with us down on the beach for some brilliant shots!
                Ride the Wave were excellent at getting the party started, and continued throughout the night!

                Despite the weather we still had an incredible day. Guests have said that it was the most amazing wedding venue they have ever
                been to and definitely the best wedding food they’ve had. The staff were brilliant throughout the whole process – Jamie’s response
                rate to my million questions was incredible and really helped reduce my stress levels. On the day and through to the evening all of
                the staff were brilliant at helping the wedding run smoothly.

                It wasn’t the day that I had imagined on the lead up to the wedding, but it was still the best day of my life. Anyone who is worried
                about booking Tunnels because of the unpredictable British weather – go for it! The inside option is still stunning and we have some
                beautiful pictures.

                Thank you Tunnels - it will always hold a special place in our hearts and we are looking forward to visiting for many years to come."

"From the moment we accidentally stumbled across Tunnels Beaches over 3 years ago on a walk, we just knew this was where
                we had to get married one day and our dreams came true. It did not disappoint one bit, we didn’t need to consider any other
                venues… this was the one! From the first meeting with Jamie (friendliest guy ever), to the many emails to and from with
                Tanya over the build up, to the actual day with Jacs rocking the organisation, everything was perfect!

                Everything about Tunnels Beaches is so dreamy; the venue is stunning, the view is breathtaking and the food is the absolute best!!

                We booked The Courtyard for ourselves and immediate friends and family to stay in for the weekend which we would highly
                recommend doing. On the Friday night we had over 60 people round for a Pimms and Paella pre-wedding party which was so much
                fun and a great way to welcome your guests to the wedding weekend. The paella was organised by Tunnels and cooked by one of
                their chefs and it was absolutely delicious!

                Nothing was too much trouble for Jamie and his team and everything was dealt with in such a calm and relaxed manner, making
                us feel constantly at ease. After weeks of sunshine a storm was forecast for our wedding day, we woke up to horrific rain and
                strong winds. As massive beach lovers, sun worshipers and travellers we just HAD to get married outside by the sea and by some
                miracle come 2.30pm the rain had stopped and the sun was out! Jacs and the team had set up inside and outside for a ceremony
                so we were covered either way and both looked stunning.

                Natasha from Pumpkin and Pye was our florist and she worked all morning in the storm to make the most incredible flower arch
                for us. She is the sweetest lady and I fell in love with her right away. She 100% had our vision and made everything just as we
                had wished with zero fuss, the bouquets smelt insane and we had soooo many flowers for guests to take home as they left. We
                had a photographer (Devon Portfolio) who had never been to Tunnels before which some may say was a risk but it was amazing
                to have her as excited (if not more so) than we were to get down there and start exploring the amazing coastline and venue - our
                pictures are to die for!

                Music is really important to us as we wanted to ensure our guests were entertained for the whole day, we had violinists playing
                in the tunnels as guests arrived (which I could hear as I was getting dressed) and it was so magical. We had Ollie Stephens
                playing before, during and after our ceremony and his voice is insane, bringing the relaxed vibes we wanted. In the evening we
                had the band Mafia 4 who ensured the entire wedding party stayed on the dancefloor all night long followed by a silent disco!

                The BBQ - WOW!! Our guests are still talking about the food now, everyone has said it is the best wedding food they have ever
                had and we totally agree. It took us weeks to narrow down our food choices and finalise decisions but wow was it worth it, I loved
                watching our guests come into the room with plates piled high and huge smiles on their faces.

                Everything about Tunnels Beaches is wedding perfect! We would not change a single thing about our day, the photographs speak
                for themselves. Our guests were happy and smiling all day and it was incredible to have everyone we love together in such a
                stunning venue! Thank you Tunnels for the most magical wedding weekend!"

"We had our beautiful wedding at Tunnels Beaches on the 28th July this year and it was absolutely amazing!...

                Ilfracombe is such a special place for us both with many memories from our visits over the years, including our engagement
                down on the beach of Hele Bay so we knew that we had to find a venue that was just as memorable and Tunnels certainly did
                not disappoint!

                After our first visit to Tunnels Beaches during the refurb and addition of the roof terrace we were amazed and fell in love with
                this gorgeous venue, so much so we booked for our wedding the very same day!! The staff were amazing from start to finish,
                answering questions on the run up to the wedding and were extremely organised on the day, ensuring everything went so smoothly!

                The BBQ buffet was delicious and of such a high quality with guests commenting how much they enjoyed this different approach
                to a wedding breakfast!

                The outstanding and purely magical views make this a venue that stands out from the rest and has provided us with memories that
                will last us a lifetime! We can't thank you all enough and will definitely be back to visit and reminisce about our beautiful day!"

"We tied the knot at Tunnels Beaches in July 2019, and cannot recommend them highly enough as a venue. Everything about
                the day went exactly as we had hoped, and we are so grateful to them for all their hard work, which made our day so special.
                The venue is incredible, steeped in history as a Victorian bathing resort, and yet the main building appears modern, slick and
                stunning. The curved design with with wide sweeping panoramic views of the north Devon coastline was perfect; the sunset
                dancing on the water as waves crashed on the beach below was heaven! Several guests were awestruck, and several were
                saying that it felt like we were outside the UK!

                The staff were the most efficient, helpful and friendly bunch you could imagine. As an example, the photographer was blown
                away at the sheer speed with which welcome drinks were distributed after the ceremony - she was singing their praises as she
                see's a lot of weddings! I was impressed at the way staff would always be smiling and checking in on us during the day, and they
                never failed to offer us a drink when they saw us empty handed - it's these small gestures that show that they really want to
                make sure your day is perfect.

                The catering was second to none. The sheer volume and variety of what was on offer was brilliant. The food was colourful,
                delicious and plentiful. Everyone was telling us how they loved the variety of the food. Special dietary requirements were well
                catered for and everyone was well fed. In particular, we loved the lamb kebabs and the squid kebabs were delicious. Several
                guests were pleased that there was the option to go down for seconds!

                The sound system and PA all went very smoothly, and the set up is well connected with music able to be played throughout the
                venue. The band and cabaret act set up and played with no issues or hitches - the system worked perfectly on the day and sound
                quality and volume was exactly what we wanted.

                The pre-wedding and after wedding administration has been a breeze, Jamie and the team have always been so well organised
                and they were happy to answer any question, large or small, in the lead up to the wedding. We always felt we were in capable
                hands, the whole operation is so well organised and slick! Thank you so much to all of the staff at Tunnels Beaches for making
                our day so special."

"After months of planning, organising and fretting about our wedding day, when we arrived at Tunnels Beaches, all our worries
                melted away. Tunnels is a super relaxed, breath-taking and beautiful wedding venue. The staff went above and beyond to ensure
                a smooth day and were so friendly and happy to help. The wedding food was delicious and all the guests commented on how
                wonderful it was, especially for vegans and vegetarians. We had the ice-cream tricycle and the evening pasties too, which are
                delicious.

                Staying in the Bath House and The Courtyard accommodation was also fabulous. The rooms were simple but very beautiful and
                had everything we could need. The adjoining outdoor space was lovely, especially the paella the night before. This went down
                a treat! There was a vegan and a meat paella and everyone said the vegan tasted amazing.

                Absolutely loved getting married at this magical venue and couldn’t have wished for a better place to share our special day
                by the sea! Finally the views are just wonderful and so is the beach for sunset photographs in the evening. Thank you Tunnels!!

                We really loved getting married at such a special venue and will surely be back for anniversaries when visiting from Australia."

"We are still on a high from our wedding day here. We got married on Thursday 25th July 2019. After viewing this location
                in March 2018, I haven't been able to understand why anyone would want to get married anywhere else! It totally surpassed
                our expectations and my jaw dropped when I walked through those gates. I mean, how many people get to walk through an
                incredible tunnel to their wedding?!

                There is such a lovely laid back feel which is what attracted my Husband, he didn't want a formal, typical wedding and a wedding
                at Tunnels is totally different in all the right ways. We had visited the beach the April before and I knew from then that I wanted
                to get married there one day (even before we got engaged!). We didn't view any other venues as we knew nothing would even
                come close! Everything about the process of planning our day was easy and stress free. We exchanged numerous emails and the
                communication was excellent. This put us at ease and we knew that everything was well taken care of. Nothing was too much to ask.

                All of our guests said how amazing the venue was and that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We have had nothing
                but positive comments about the day and we know how much everyone enjoyed it. The food was a big highlight, people just
                couldn't get enough of it! The canapés, the BBQ, the ice-creams, all of it was faultless.

                We were fortunate enough to have amazing weather, so hot that our guests had umbrellas for the ceremony. We were able to have
                our first dance outside and our guests were dancing on the terrace until around 11pm. We can well and truly say that we had the
                most amazing wedding day, better than we could have imagined. We will always look back and remember the incredible day we had,
                which wouldn't have been possible without all the staff at Tunnels Beaches. Thank you so much for everything."

"Getting married at Tunnels Beaches was the best thing we have ever decided to do! We booked the venue without seeing it first
                as we lived abroad... If you are in the same position don’t be scared as when you finally walk through the tunnel and see the view
                there is no way you could ever be disappointed!!

                In the lead up to the day nothing was too much and Jamie and the team answered all our questions - no matter how silly they were!
                Nothing about planning our wedding with the team was stressful which is exactly what you need with everything else going on!
                Although we got married mid July, there was a huge storm but this really didn’t matter! We got married inside and it was better
                than we could ever imagine. The atmosphere created from the intimate setting, with our band singing us down the aisle and
                looking out onto the ocean is a moment we will never forget!

                Luckily for us the weather cleared around 5pm and from then on all our guests were outside, on the beach and taking in the
                incredible views! The two cherries on the cake were a breathtaking sunset and having our first dance outside with our guests
                dancing around us with sparklers!

                Our photographer Aga Tomasek was incredible and our photos capture every emotion and second of the day. Our band The Chartz
                played at various points throughout the whole day, they absolutely understood the sentimental vibes we wanted when they sung
                us down the aisle and our first dance but then got the whole party going when the sun went down!

                Tunnels will always have a special place in our hearts and we just wish we could do it all over again!"

"My husband and I chose Tunnels Beaches for our wedding venue based on the testimonials, photos and general vibe of the website.
                We wanted a venue that was contemporary, could accommodate a live band, and had a relaxed atmosphere with excellent food.
                Neither of us had visited the venue, we hadn't ever been to Ilfracombe, and we saw the venue for the first time on the day of our
                marriage. Everyone we spoke to who had either visited or worked at the venue guaranteed that we would have a stunning day.
                And we certainly did.

                The staff are superb. The preparation was not at all stressful due to efficient, friendly and professional email correspondence.
                On the day, the staff did all they could to assist us in the morning as we were setting up. Throughout the day and evening, the
                staff were not only ultra attentive to our needs, but went above and beyond for our guests too. They really have a great team.

                The food was fresh, delicious and plentiful! We had heaps of choice, which catered to every dietary requirement. We just wished
                we could fit more onto our plate. The ice cream tricycle also went down a treat, as did the vegetarian paella later in the evening.

                We chose a florist, photographer and child minder from the Tunnel's recommended professionals list in the FAQ section. We also
                hired a keyboard and sound equipment for the ceremony through a company recommended by Tunnels. This really paid off as their
                experience and knowledge of the venue were invaluable and it provided us peace of mind.

                The size of the venue was perfect for our 70 guests. The weather was perfect which meant we could use the outdoor area for the
                ceremony, speeches and general mingling. The outdoor party games that Tunnels supplied were thoroughly enjoyed by all. This
                venue is also very child friendly, which was a bonus for the small army of children present throughout the day.

                Our day was perfect. We wish we could do it all again. Thank you, Tunnels!"

"Our wedding day was hands down one of the best days of our lives! And this was in large part to the incredible venue and
                staff at Tunnels Beaches.

                We live in New York but Amy is originally from the UK so we wanted to get married back in her homeland. A rustic barn
                or country estate is definitely not our vibe so when we came across Tunnels Beaches we knew immediately that it was right
                for us - a contemporary, stylish venue in a stunning location by the sea. Also a wonderful place for our fiends and family
                from both sides of the Atlantic to come and gather for a long weekend.

                From the very first email Jamie and his team could not have been more helpful. On the day itself the staff made everything
                run like clockwork - it was amazing, we weren't even aware of what they were doing at times because they were so efficient,
                discrete and professional. It all just worked like a very well oiled machine which let everyone just enjoy the day to the fullest.
                We can't speak highly enough of all the staff!

                Ourselves and close family stayed at The Courtyard which made the weekend even more enjoyable. Having the space to spread
                out, especially with 5 young children in the mix was wonderful and it meant that getting ready on the day was a lot less stressful
                being so close to the action!

                So many of our guests commented on the BBQ being the best wedding food they had ever had - and it was divine! All of our
                guests with dietary restrictions were also very well taken care of which was lovely. The ice cream in the afternoon was also
                a really big hit! We have had so many comments that this was one of, if not THE best wedding people have ever been to - which
                is quite a statement!

                Finally all of our vendors were the real icing on the cake to making the day as perfect as it was (as well as the weather which
                defied the cloudy forecast and gave us hours of glorious sunshine!). Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye created a gorgeous modern set
                of bouquets and decorations, the incredibly talented Kate Burt created a modern art cake that was beyond amazing, Elle Hitchins
                and Brigitte Fisher for beautiful make-up and hair respectively, the talented Brass Junkies got the party started in the afternoon
                and then the Wedding Spinner played an unbelievable 5 hour set through the evening. And of course the incredible photos by
                Andy Wardle.

                Thank you Tunnels - it was perfect! We wish we could do it all over again!"

"We chose the Tunnels Beaches as we wanted something different and exciting, and not too formal. As soon as we found the
                website we knew we’d found the one! And the visit just reinforced that.

                The venue is incredible. The view, the vibe, the different levels - it was just perfect. The food was the best we’ve ever had
                at a wedding - in fact we’ve been told numerous times that it was the best wedding lots of our guests had been to.

                The ceremony was special without being too formal - exactly what we wanted and the drinks afterwards with the sun shining
                and sea in the background was just magical. We want to do it all again!!! The best day, ever. Thank you to Jamie and the team.

"We booked the venue a year before the big day and decided on also booking The Courtyard and The Woodlands and turn the
                wedding into a 3 day party! Both houses were full and we started the weekend by having fish and chips delivered on Thursday
                evening for 40+ people and finished it with a BBQ the day after the wedding for a similar number.

                The weather leading up to the day itself had been changeable but as the week wore on the forecast got better and better.
                We woke up on the Friday to fabulous blue skies and an early morning swim! Hannah from Brighteye Beauty did my hair and
                make-up and she was superb! My husband said I looked like a beautiful polished version of myself.

                We wanted to keep things simple so no speeches, best man/bridesmaids, bouquet etc but we did have some flowers on the
                gazebo and on the tables which Twigs Flowers arranged for us. They were excellent and lasted ages, so long that people took
                them home with them on the Sunday!

                We chose Paul from the Wedding Spinner to play the music on the day. Music is very important to us and when we met Paul he
                ‘got us’ immediately. At first, we thought we would just have him for the evening reception but in the end, we decided to book
                him for the whole day. He was brilliant, co-ordinating the music for the ceremony and keeping the party going all day. Because
                the weather was so good, we didn’t really start the evening until around 10 but the dance floor was packed from start to finish.
                He helped make the day perfect and was worth every penny.

                The venue itself is a dream. On a day like we had we could have been anywhere in the Mediterranean. The sea and the sky were
                blue and the sun shone. Jacs and Catherine co-ordinated everything and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent,
                lots of very complimentary comments on the mackerel! Having three floors to spread ourselves out over was brilliant and the top
                floor was a total chill out zone.

                Our guests were blown away by the venue and absolutely loved it. Most had never been to anything like this before and that was
                exactly what we were looking for. Somewhere unique, a little bit different and not stuffy. Tunnels Beaches was the perfect venue
                for us and we are so glad we found you!"

"We got married on Friday 21st June 2019 words can not put in place how amazing our day was. From start to finish the staff
                were simply amazing. We stayed at The Courtyard from the Wednesday - Sunday and so glad we did as gave us time to settle
                in before the big day on the Friday. We had 110 people at the wedding all day and night and the party and atmosphere was
                incredible. The party went on until 2am. We had 'The Wedding Spinner DJ' all day and night who was brilliant and kept the
                party buzzing. The flowers were just simply stunning could not have asked for better we used Pumpkin & Pye. Our photographer
                was Siobhan Beales, our photos are breathtaking. Hair was done by the lovely Brigitte Fisher who is very talented! Makeup was
                by the lovely Amy Elizabeth, she made me feel amazing and kept it simple and elegant.

                The food was out of this world and all guest just kept commented how amazing it was 10/10. The staff at the Tunnels were just
                brilliant and ran everything in the background without us even having a clue it was going on, it all ran so smoothly.

                It was honestly the best day of our lives and we want to do it all again. I watch our videos back and all we can hear is laughter
                all around and in our photos everyone has a constant smile on their face. Tunnels Beaches you honestly are in league of your own.

                Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"

"We had a perfect wedding day at Tunnels Beaches. In the run up to the wedding the team were really helpful and accommodating.
                We had a couple of specific requests of which none were too much trouble and we would always come off the phone feeling
                reassured about any concerns we had.

                The day was amazing, having a cold beer or gin and tonic overlooking the spectacular view was always going to be a good way
                to start! The sound system is also a big plus and gives the welcome drinks a really chilled atmosphere and it was a great time
                to get down onto the beach and chat to our guests.

                It was important to us to give our guests a great meal and it didn’t disappoint. Everyone commented on how amazing the food
                was and we couldn’t agree more. It was such a highlight of the day and again to enjoy it overlooking the ocean was really special.
                The menu has such variety so we could cater for all of our guests. The evening was also great, the space is a good size for
                dancing while people can relax outside on the terrace or around the fire. The evening food was also delicious. Throughout the
                whole day the staff were amazing. They were really flexible with timings and made it completely stress free. They worked so
                hard but to us the day just ran itself!

                All of our guests commented on how amazing our wedding was and so many people said it was the best they have ever been to!
                Everyone had such a good day from the children to the Grandparents. We stayed in The Woodlands house which is also incredible
                and made the whole weekend extra special. Thanks Tunnels!"
