Tunnels Beaches

Tunnels Beaches
+26 Photos

Tunnels Beaches on North Devon’s rugged North Coast is a spectacular venue for your wedding and reception. “Unique” is an over-used adjective when it comes to wedding locations, but there is certainly no other way to describe this one!...

Access your private, secluded garden overlooking the sea and beach via hand carved tunnels through the cliffs and then take in the breath taking coastal views to Lundy Island.

Choose to get married within our thatched gazebo overlooking the sea, within our beautiful bespoke wedding facility overlooking the garden, gazebo & sea, or even within the tunnels themselves!

This historic location is an ideal venue for your special day – fantastic scenery for your photos, private secluded beaches with spectacular romantic sunsets and all arranged by attentive and flexible staff.

The garden and your facilities will be exclusive and private to you during the day and your guests are able to explore the tunnels, coves and beaches in privacy in the evening.

We offer a wide choice of buffet, barbecue, canapé, and drink packages that provide a relaxing and informal feel.

The dramatic high cliffs, sheltered beaches and our own tidal bathing pool make a stunning backdrop for a firework display to end your special day.

Our first class facilities (including function room/bar with balcony and roof terrace) provide a stunning seashore location for your wedding - whatever the weather!

We don't currently have a printed brochure - all relevant info. can be found on our website: www.tunnelsbeaches.co.uk, please email for date availability.

We have been shortlisted for the South West 'Wedding Venue of the Year' Award! www.the-wedding-industry-awards.co.uk

Amy's Review

This is by far the best wedding venue I could find.....and I looked.....a lot! To have gotten married outside, by the beach was something that we both really wanted and I would recommend Tunnels Beaches over anywhere else. The staff, especially Josh, are really helpful, relaxed yet professional. The food...

Our brief when we started planning our wedding was for an informal and relaxed celebration close to the sea…visiting the Tunnels for the first time simply took our breath away.
