"We want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the staff at the Tunnels Beaches and also to all of our amazing suppliers for
                making our wedding day a perfect one. From the moment we set eyes on the place, we knew it was where we wanted to get
                married and make memories with our loved ones to last us a lifetime. The venue is just breathtakingly beautiful with a view
                to match - even if we hadn't been lucky with the weather it would have been just as stunning.

                We booked out The Courtyard and The Bath House, which gave us more time with our nearest and dearest (we definitely
                recommend this), and to make the most of the weekend we hosted a 1920s themed party on the Friday!

                On the day, Natasha from Pumpkin & Pye did a really unbelievable job of getting my vision for my flowers completely spot on
                and incorporating the mini oriental theme. I think I gasped as I walked down the aisle when I saw how beautiful the gazebo,
                fire torches and everything else looked. It was better than I could have imagined and I absolutely LOVED my bouquet. It smelled
                the best!

                The staff were amazing and helped with every stage of the process from the initial booking, to answering all our questions,
                the viewings, setting up in the morning, working with suppliers, advising on where props/cake etc should go, incorporating
                our vision and many more things that Catherine, Tanya and Jacs took care of on the day, and that took a huge weight off
                our minds. Nothing was too much trouble for Jamie and his team, and they handled everything we threw at them with a very
                laid back attitude. Attentive from beginning to end, they ensured everyone and everything was in the right place at the right
                time, despite people being spread across three floors. They really know what they are doing so trust the experts when it
                comes to the timing on the day!

                The food was beyond delicious - almost a month on our guests are still raving about it!! One of the hardest things was
                narrowing down what we wanted - there were so many options and they were all great! It was by far the best wedding meal
                we've eaten and so many of our guests have said that's their summer BBQs ruined because they won't be able to live up to it!
                I, for one, piled my plate so high I had to stand up afterwards to breathe after devouring it all!

                From the get go we knew what kind of music we wanted and we had to hunt high and low to find Abi Rose Sax and the right
                kind of DJ. She and Tom from The Wedding Spinner were an absolute SENSATION! They were both incredibly professional and
                pumped up the crowd more than I've ever seen at a wedding. I was so impressed and so proud to have something a little bit
                different! It was better than we could even have dreamt!

                The venue was incredible on the day and knowing we had it to ourselves was so special. It's so gorgeous you don't need to
                go heavy on the props. Our friends and family absolutely loved it and people were smiling from ear to ear all day long. With
                a breakdancing dance-off, a great backdrop, awesome music and great vibes, it's no surprise that the dance floor was
                packed out until it closed. It's testimony in itself that everyone who came is still talking about it, buzzing about what an
                amazing day it was! I kept having to stop and just take everything in - there is nothing like seeing everyone you love together
                in one place having the best time!

                It really was the most incredible weekend, we cannot thank you enough for everything you did. It was seamless and just perfect."

"From the moment that we visited the Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe, we both knew this was the place that we wanted to start
                our wedded journey together. We had already had a wedding venue booked and deposit paid for back in London, but since
                relocating to Ilfracombe we had begun to look at alternatives nearer to us, and The Tunnels Beaches took our breath away
                and we loved it more than our first venue (which we didn’t think could even be possible).

                From the beginning Jamie and his entire team were so helpful. Living locally, I visited often to go see the venue and speak
                to Jamie and Catherine about food options and decoration ideas. They were so obliging and always happy to answer any tiny
                questions that popped into my head. The whole planning experience was made so much easier from having a wonderful team
                to advise and always quick to respond. And minimal decoration is needed, because let’s be honest no one is interested in
                looking at fairy lights and flowers when there are views like that to capture your gaze!

                We hired the Woodlands for the weekend of the wedding, and it was the best decision we could’ve made. The amount of
                comments we had from our guests saying how lovely it was to stay together. We live 4 hours from all our friends and family
                and having that space made that time even more special, and there are memories of staying at The Woodlands that we will
                cherish forever.

                On the day I did not once worry about anything. Jacs and her team were truly unbelievable, always there to help move the day
                along and take care of little details so we both could enjoy the spectacular views and the venue itself. The comments we have
                had about the venue have been amazing. Everyone felt like they were abroad, and don’t even get me started on how fabulous
                our wedding photos are!

                Another thing to mention is the food...!! Not only is there an array of choices, but the quality and quantity of it was magnificent.
                No one went hungry and feedback from our guests were great. I’m praying we get invited to a wedding there soon just to
                experience the food again!

                If you want a truly unique, laid back and hassle free wedding, the Tunnels Beaches is by far your best choice. We wish we could
                have our day again, as it was utterly perfect!

                Thank you again to Jamie, Catherine, Jacs and the rest of the Tunnels Beaches team!"

"After visiting nine other venues, that didn't quite make us feel like we had found the one, we finally visited Tunnels Beaches
                and fell in love with it. The setting is just stunning. You have all the elements of a relaxed beach wedding, but with none of
                the downsides (what do you do if it rains, what footwear should we wear on the sand, having to check the tide times).

                Set in the cliffs, the venue is beautifully decorated and has the most amazing sea views. The sun sets over the beach, which
                is perfect for golden hour photographs down on the sand. The team are all so brilliant and easy to communicate with and
                ensure you have the most relaxed day. The food was incredible, all of our guests said how delicious it all was.

                We stayed in The Courtyard and The Bath house and all of the rooms are stunning. Having the three nights was brilliant as it
                meant we could spend time with everyone, (the wedding day goes by so quickly!) We had paella in The Courtyard the evening
                after our wedding and it was great – like a second wedding day! Nobody wanted to leave.

                The venue is one of the biggest expenses of the wedding day, if not the biggest, but every penny we spent at Tunnels Beaches
                was worth it. We had the best weekend of our lives and would do it again it a heartbeat."

"Well, where to start! From start to finish Tunnels Beaches made our perfect day even more perfect than we could ever have
                imagined: the setting is breathtaking, the venue is just amazing, the food the best we've ever had at a wedding (as stated by
                all the guests also), the staff are faultless and the weather... well, let's just say somewhere the sun gods were blessing us.

                Tunnels Beaches is the only place we would ever have got married as it matches our chilled, laid back style and it was a seamless
                journey up until the special day; the staff are so well versed in dealing with everything from booking, to the big day itself,
                taking away all the worry and working tirelessly to make your day the best ever.

                We also stayed in their onsite accommodation, The Courtyard! This added a whole different dimension to our wedding as it
                allowed family and friends a base to stay in and took away so many stresses of transport... Equally the accommodation itself
                is so so stunning and enabled us to make the Wedding become an event for a few days to extend the festivities.

                Thank you all so much for everything you did for us on this day; we could not have asked for anything more. Tunnels Beaches
                is a venue of dreams and even if you're not getting married you should visit this hidden gem because you will not understand
                the beauty of it until you do!! Thank you again!"

"We knew as soon as we first visited Tunnels Beaches that this is where we wanted to get married and our wedding day was as
                perfect as we could have wished for.

                Throughout the build up we had many questions of which the Tunnels team responded to quickly, which made things easier and
                less stressful for us.

                The whole day from start to finish ran smoothly and couldn’t have gone any better. Thanks to the team for their hard work and
                help in the background, which meant we didn’t have to worry about anything on the day. Every part of the food was delicious
                and there was plenty to go around.

                We stayed at The Bath House which turned the wedding into a lovely long weekend with our family and friends, the
                accommodation is set out perfect for large groups and we even got to use the BBQ the day after the wedding.

                We were incredibly lucky that the weather for that weekend was beautiful sunshine, which was the icing on the cake!!"

"We had our wedding in April at Tunnels Beaches. The venue and accommodation were stunning. The accommodation fit
                over half of our wedding party and we indulged in the paella evening the day before the wedding. The paella was incredible
                and there was more than enough for people to have seconds. It was a great way to start our wedding celebrations bringing
                family together.

                On our wedding day the sun started to shine just before the ceremony. Everything ran like clockwork and the staff in the
                venue were fantastic - they went above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect day.

                I cannot stress how beautiful the venue is, particularly when the sun is shining. It felt like we were abroad and the food was
                the best food we have ever tasted. Wedding guests are still raving about it almost two months later. The firepit added an
                extra ambience in the evening, there were blankets for when it got chilly and we watched the sunset from the upstairs balcony.

                It was magnificent! All in all we couldn't have picked a more perfect venue to begin our lives together. We want to do it over
                and over again."

"Tunnels Beaches was the only venue we visited, because as soon as we saw it, we knew it was perfect for us. Right from the
                start Jamie and the team were friendly, helpful and no question was too silly. It really took the pressure off, knowing that so
                many of the small details were already covered by the venue, meaning that we could just enjoy the lead up to the wedding.

                We stayed in The Courtyard and The Bath House over the wedding and we're so glad we did, everyone commented it made
                it so special to be able to spend time together before and after the wedding and the accommodation is stunning, people were
                blown away.

                The wedding day itself went so smoothly, thanks so much to Jacs who was always in the background, making sure things were
                running smoothly without us needing to worry about anything. The food was incredible, we had so many compliments about it
                and there was plenty to go around, Pasties in the evening went down a treat!

                The whole day was perfect, we were lucky enough to have sun all day so we could get married outside, but it would have been
                just as special inside, what a view!

                Thanks so much to Jamie, Jacs, Catherine and all the team for making our day so special, what a special place Tunnels Beaches is."

"Andy and I would like to say a huge thank you for the most amazing day we could have wished for. From the first moment we
                visited the venue we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. The relaxed atmosphere and stunning beach location was
                perfect for us and how we wanted to celebrate with our friends and family.

                The food was delicious and the team went out of the way to make all of our food vegetarian so we could keep the whole wedding
                about us. All of the team looked after us and the guests and were so happy to do anything we needed. Jacs especially was
                absolutely amazing on the day, she was discreet and always checking to make sure I was having a drink and happy.

                We are still having so many compliments about this venue now two months after the wedding as the guests were blown away
                by the beauty and how well it suited us. Thank you to everyone who helped make our wedding day perfect, we completely fell
                in love with your venue and can never thank you enough for letting us have such an awesome day to remember.

                Thank you so much Tunnels, we can't wait to come back for a visit next year."

"Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all the team for making our wedding day so amazing!...

                From the very start of the wedding planning process when we visited the venue until our wedding day the team couldn’t have done
                enough for us, this made the whole wedding planning process very stress free and easy.

                The day itself couldn’t have gone any better, even if we did have storm Callum to contend with! The wedding day ran like a dream,
                the food was out of this world (people are still telling us how amazing the stuffed peppers and pulled pork was), people danced all
                night and the team on the day made sure everything ran perfectly.

                The Bath House and The Courtyard also made the wedding day into a lovely long weekend with our closest friends and family, the
                accommodation is beautiful, you guys really have thought of everything. I also now really want a double shower ha ha!

                We hope to see you all again soon, we will be back to visit the beaches in the Spring..."

"From the first moment we walked into the venue, we looked at each other and instantly knew it was 'the one'! Words cannot
                describe how breathtakingly beautiful the venue is.

                From our initial meeting plus numerous additional viewings, the staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, all questions
                answered and a very laid back approach was very reassuring! Special thanks to Catherine, Tanya and Jacs who were faultless
                throughout and are a credit to Tunnels Beaches!

                The food was out of this world. We had read reviews and can honestly say we were not disappointed. Our guests are still
                commenting! The 'Tiger Prawn & Monkfish Skewers' are definitely a must!

                We hired Bath House and The Courtyard for three nights, which I cannot recommend enough. Both properties were immaculate
                and afforded us time to spend with our family and closest friends the night before and after the wedding.

                Our wedding was therefore a three day celebration, was so perfect from start to finish and the weather was beautiful!

                Recommendations for 'Offshore Blooms', 'Pinned to Perfection', 'Claire Makes Cakes' and 'Nova Photography' proved to be
                fantastic and we were overwhelmed by their work on the day.

                Thank you all for being so accommodating and helping to make our day so special. We have memories to treasure for a lifetime!"

                We had a very windy day and the pictures I have are amazing. I was really worried about the weather and still with it not being
                great it was amazing!!

                The food was brilliant, there is so much to choose from and I know we wouldn't have been disappointed with anything. Every
                single guest commented on how great it was!

                The communication was also great... I organised everything through email, visited only once and just turned up on the day!
                It was perfect - the staff were very attentive and friendly and we just didn’t want for anything. Special thanks to Jamie, the

"From the moment we set foot inside Tunnels Beaches we knew it was for us. Our wedding was always about one big party
                with everyone that was super important in our lives and we knew that the Tunnels would be special not just for us, but for
                everyone else too. Somewhere different. Something a little bit unique. Something that was truly 'us'.

                We met Jamie almost a year before our wedding and his relaxed yet confident approach to what they offered clicked with us,
                every question we asked there was an answer straight away, nothing was too much trouble in the lead up and the location,
                well there are simply no words.

                We hired out The Bath House and The Courtyard accommodation too and would say that absolutely made the weekend. So us
                (and the 36 guests staying with us there) arrived on Thursday and Catherine met us and checked us in, quickly, no hassle, the
                party started that night. Our wedding was the following day and myself and my in laws popped down to the venue around 11am
                to see the florist and speak to Jacs who ran our day for us. Credit where it's due, she is in her job for a reason and I had full faith.
                We couldn't have asked for anything else, the best day ever.

                Since our day, we've had endless comments on the relaxed feel of the wedding, the food remains a clear highlight for most, as did
                the band who kept the dance floor full all night."

"What can we say? I don’t think there are words that express how perfect our day was at this very special place. The service,
                staff and AMAZING food only add to the spectacular location.

                Our day was blue skies but ‘windy’ to say the least (we chose to get married outside anyway) and it added to the atmosphere.
                We laughed all day. Our guests were blown away (literally!) by the stunning views. The food was phenomenal, drinks did not
                stop flowing and we danced until we were very kindly kicked out... We didn’t want the day to end.

                We cry happy tears looking back at our pictures and will keep the memories with us forever.

                The food was outstanding. The staff were so attentive, effortlessly seeing to every detail yet almost invisible. They took all
                of the pressure off us, letting us enjoy every second of our big day, from organising all 10 bridesmaids!!, setting the tables,
                displaying our cake and packing all away at the end of the night.

                Roger Styles played an acoustic set at our drinks reception, he totally made the atmosphere and is insanely talented.
                Paul, DJ (The Wedding Spinner), was brilliant and made the party in the evening. Andy Wardle, our photographer, was not only
                the loveliest person to have shared our day with but discreet, creative and we cannot wait to see our photos! Sarah Nardoni
                (recommended babysitter) looked after our 3 year old and is the loveliest, kindest lady. Kai is still talking about her! I think
                everything Jamie and his team recommend is perfection to the end.

                Thank you so so much from us both, for a day we will talk about forever."

"Tunnels was the first and only venue we visited. We booked a visit in with Tanya for early October 2016, prior to the new
                extension and The Courtyard. After being showed around The Bath House and Tunnels Beaches itself we were completely
                in love with it, but it was when we were stood in the little gazebo looking out at the view that we knew 100% that this was
                where we would get married. Words can’t describe the feeling it gives you. We booked The Bath House and Tunnels there
                and then for one of the only weekends they had left in 2018.

                March 2017 Tanya invited us to a wedding fair/open day at Tunnels. This is where we found our musician, Roger Styles and
                our photographer – Anna Pumer. There aren’t many better suited to this venue than those two. Jamie then showed us the
                plans for The Courtyard, which we didn’t hesitate to book.

                From the initial booking to the day, if we had any queries or issues, Tanya or Jamie were always available for us and in the
                weeks leading up to the wedding all the final details are confirmed and the whole process is made quite easy.

                When we arrived, Tanya showed us round and got us checked in, we were particularly excited to see The Courtyard at last.
                Then we were able to greet the rest of our guests staying there. We opted for the 'Meet & Greet Paella' the night before
                and it was one of the nicest meals we’ve ever had, most of our guests went back for seconds and thirds.

                On the wedding morning Jacs was a massive help, organising the day and taking a lot of the stress away so we could focus
                on the important things and in the evening Pete took over and he helped sort the Band, dish out the cake and made sure the
                evening went smoothly. They both deserve a special mention and thank you.

                The Gourmet BBQ, Canapés and Pasties were all amazing, people are still talking about the food. Same as the Paella the night
                before, people were going back for thirds.

                We’d just like to thank Jamie, Tanya and the amazing team at Tunnels Beaches for the best weekend and Wedding ever.
                We can’t wait to come back and visit!..."

"We decided we wanted to get married by the sea and we quickly came across Tunnels Beaches and knew instantly this was the one!
                We arranged a meeting to see the venue and immediately fell in love with it. It’s the sort of venue that would look stunning
                whatever the weather, so if it rained on our wedding day it wouldn’t matter! As it happened we were very lucky with the weather
                and the sun was out all day. The staff were excellent from the second we got there right through to the very end.

                The food was outstanding, I had guests come up to me all night commenting on how yummy it was. Some of our guests were vegans
                and vegetarians, and they all said it was some of the best food they’d eaten!

                The view from the venue made our wedding photos look absolutely incredible, we loved going onto the beach to have photos taken.
                Our DJ Paul Barrington was fantastic, he had everybody up dancing. I strongly recommend getting the GoPro video which was
                hilarious to watch.

                This really was one of the best days of our lives, we can’t thank Tunnels Beaches enough!"

"Thank you so so much for our wonderful wedding. We knew from the moment we saw Tunnels Beaches website that it was where
                we wanted to have our day.

                Planning a wedding from 4 hours away should be a bit daunting but it genuinely couldn’t have been easier for us, from the list of
                recommended suppliers from Tunnels to the ridiculously prompt email replies from the Tunnels team throughout, everything is
                so easy, and we never for a moment doubted anything.

                We stayed in The Courtyard which was a perfect base for our wedding party, it is comfortable, clean and beautifully designed.

                Our day was off to a rather gloomy start, and I was so desperate to get married outside, we were booked for 2.30pm, and at
                2.25pm it finally looked like the rain might hold off, the team pushed back the ceremony by 5 minutes, wiped down all the chairs,
                got blankets and umbrellas out just incase, and we got to have the ceremony outside as the blue sky came out.

                Everything went flawlessly from start to finish, the team onsite were incredible, the food was literally the best food ever, and there
                was SO much of it! Best wedding food EVER. All hot, all delicious.

                The staff got everybody where they needed to be at the right time, always with a smile on their face.

                We had a lot of our guests whinge to us on the journey down, ‘could you have booked a wedding any further away?’ and every
                single person that had said that came up to us on the day and said ‘we absolutely get it, what a venue!’

                We feel so lucky to have been able to get married in this little slice of heaven.

                Thank you all, for everything. We are eternally grateful."

"We've always dreamed of getting married by the beach, but never knew just how magical it would truly be. Tunnels Beaches was
                the first and last venue we visited as we both instantly fell in love!

                The view is phenomenal, the building itself is awesome and the staff were lovely. Everyone we spoke to from beginning to end
                made our wedding so simple and smooth – nothing fazed or flustered them. As we aren’t local to the venue the organisation was
                done mostly through emails. The forms were straightforward and questions were impressively answered within a few hours.

                Our day ran seamlessly and we were both inundated with compliments from stunned guests for every aspect of the day – the view,
                venue, staff and most importantly food! We honestly can’t thank Tunnels enough for making it the most incredible day and giving
                us wonderful memories that will last for the rest of our lives!"

"Well what can I say... Steve and I had the best wedding we could have ever hoped and dreamed for! Steve wanted to get
                married abroad originally, but I wanted all our family and friends with us. So when we came across your beautiful venue it
                certainly felt like we were somewhere else! This was the first venue we visited and we booked it straight away, we knew we
                didn't need to see anywhere else as this was everything we were looking for and imagined and more!

                We cannot thank your team enough for making our day so perfect and run so smoothly. There was nothing that was too much
                trouble and we didn't feel worried about anything on the day, it all went so perfectly! Everyone who worked on our day were
                brilliant and so helpful and happy. All of our guests commented on the day and still tell us now how amazing this venue was,
                how brilliant the team were and most importantly how incredible the food was!!

                We were so lucky with the weather too, a beautiful sunny day (sandwiched between some rainy days!) I think my dad was shining
                the sun down on us that day, and it really was beautiful. Everyone felt like they were in another country.

                Anyway, thank you all so much again, we really did have the best day of our lives at Tunnels Beaches and I wish we could do it all
                over again! I will be telling anyone I know who gets engaged to book this beautiful place (mainly so I can come again as a guest
                and enjoy another day here - and the food!)

                Thanks again and we will definitely be back on our wedding anniversaries to visit this lovely place again."

"Getting married at Tunnels Beaches has been perfect from start to finish. When it came to our venue we had no stress
                whatsoever. Our minds were at ease knowing that they had everything taken care of. Throughout the day staff gently guided
                us through the day which we were so grateful for as we had no official itinerary! We wanted a relaxed informal wedding by
                the sea and that’s exactly what we got.

                We were told by many of our guests it was the best wedding they had been to, that they will never forget it, and everybody
                can’t stop raving about the food, even a vegetable curry and a cheese baguette by Tunnels tastes out of this world.

                Thank you Tunnels for the most perfect day, we couldn’t fault it. And even little things like the fact you packed everything up
                for us to collect the next day and set the tables for us just made it so everybody could enjoy themselves without worrying about
                the boring stuff! We would whole heartedly recommend Tunnels Beaches to anybody, you can’t beat it."

"When I first visited Tunnels Beaches I simply said WOW!!... There wasn’t one thing to criticise in this contemporary venue
                with a stunning view. The whole planning process was streamline, with the team always quick to respond to any queries.
                Special thanks to Catherine and Tanya. My only reservation was I couldn’t try the food but I needn’t have worried - the food
                was exceptional, every guest said it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. Highly recommend the Fishcakes and
                Chicken Liver Pate Canapés, the Monkfish Skewers, Halloumi Skewers and Sea Bream. Jacs on the day was always so attentive
                to my OCD details (haha), nothing was too much trouble. A special thanks also to the bar and waiting staff, the loveliest we
                have ever dealt with at the million weddings we have attended!

                We stayed in The Courtyard accommodation which was fabulous to have all my loved ones on site. We had a big post wedding
                BBQ in our private courtyard the next day which finished off our 3 day celebration perfectly.

                Highly recommend Pinned to Perfection for hair, RJ Films, Sweet Williams Flowers and Claire’s Sweet Temptations for the
                wedding cake.

                We had the most fabulous day and we can’t thank the Tunnels Beaches team enough. All our guests still rave that it’s the best
                wedding they’ve ever been to!"

"Everyone always says how stressful it is to organise a wedding. We found that it was quite the opposite! The website of
                Tunnels Beaches was great with so many recommendations for absolutely everything. All our questions were answered by
                searching through the website and for any personalised questions we always got a prompt reply from your team.

                The Bath House was the perfect accommodation for our families. Everyone loved their rooms, it was all very modern and it
                had everything we needed. I think my sister was ready to move in!!

                We thoroughly enjoyed every single moment on our wedding day thanks to your staff and all of the organising done behind
                the scenes. We are still getting compliments about how good the food was, everyone was raving about it. Massive thanks to
                The Wedding Spinner DJ who played some great tunes during the whole day and it all fit in perfectly.

                Thank you all so much for the hospitality, flexibility and a wonderful day. If we could do it all over again, we wouldn’t change
                a thing."

"Well where do I start...

                Firstly, I just want to say a massive thank you from myself and Andrew, to Catherine who helped with everything, from start
                to finish. Also for all the staff who helped, you were all great and so helpful with sorting everything out, the accommodation
                is incredible and ours was amazing.

                Secondly, the food was absolutely delicious and was catered to all of our guests, the weather was good (but a bit windy).
                The room was amazing and well decorated.

                Thirdly, thank you to Jacs who helped throughout our day to insure everything went to plan! We both, as well as all of our
                guests loved the venue and had a fantastic time. Thank you to all the guests who travelled many miles to make our day.
                Also to Rob Wheatman our photographer, our videographers Steve Parker and Miles Goodman, my hair and nail ladies Emma
                Johnson and Nicky, my makeup lady Rachel Earner and to our cake maker Cora, a huge thank you to you all and everyone who
                helped along the way! Couldn’t have done it without you all! It was an absolute perfect day and night!

                Finally, a huge shout out again to all the staff at Tunnels Beaches for a wonderful stay! We look forward to seeing you all again!
                It’s been an absolute pleasure meeting you all and thank you once again for providing a perfect service for our perfect day!"

"Where do we start!!...
                One word to describe our wedding at Tunnel Beaches... MAGICAL!!!!!
                The only thing is we did not want it to end.

                You simply fall in love with this venue, it is breathtaking as soon as you enter through the doors. All our guests were stunned
                by its beauty. That feeling of joy and happiness when as a bride you enter the beaches is amazing.

                Our advice is go for it, please do not worry about anything the staff are incredible and really make you feel special and the only
                ones getting married there. Met Jamie for the first time on our second visit and he was extremely professional and answered
                all our questions including how the gourmet barbecue works. We were worried there would not be enough food and not the
                selected choice for everyone. WOW the food was exquisite and taste blowing delicious. You will not be disappointed and there
                was certainly plenty of it. We had drinks tokens and these worked really well for us.

                It was touch and go with the weather so we put our trust in the lovely staff to arrange all our wedding decorations at the last
                minute. Like with everything else throughout our build up to our wedding we could count on them all to make it as special as
                they all made us feel. Thank you to you all from the bottom and tops of our hearts!!!

                There are truly no words to describe how much fun and how special our day was, you just have to trust us and your hearts
                and make it your turn to write a testimonial of pure happiness!! That sounds cheesy, but our wedding was and everyone loves
                a bit of cheese!!!

                A special thank you to also the following... Evolve Photography, Mark who is a lovely down to earth photographer who we might
                add is good with weather forecasts. Pumpkin & Pie Flowers, Natasha is as beautiful as her flowers, she just created exactly what
                we wanted, perfect. Our creative delicious cake was by Lisa at The Deli. Balloons by North Devon Party Celebrations, Marc was
                very professional and delivered exactly what we wanted. The Wedding Spinner DJ rocked our music and Wayne Green our guitarist
                who was amazing. Tunnels Beaches Rocks!!!"

"Well where do we start! Planning a wedding people say it is stressful and difficult, 2 words that even when based in Manchester
                never crossed our minds when planning ours at the most amazing venue of the Tunnels Beaches.

                We fell in love with the Tunnels Beaches 2 years ago since then the planning process was seamless. All the staff are so welcoming
                and accommodating that you feel like it’s home away from home.

                We had both sets of accommodation The Bath House and The Courtyard. From arriving on the Tuesday, our Wedding day on the
                Wednesday and our garden party on Thursday. Were the most special days of our lives. To be surrounded by close family and friends
                was topped by the most stunning venue.

                Our wedding day was more than perfect to us. With a rain cloud looming staff were calm and positive and never faltered that
                we would be able to proceed with the ceremony outside. Within 10 minutes the rain cloud passed and the sun shone brightly all
                afternoon, a relaxed ceremony full of love and laughter, the tastiest gourmet BBQ we have ever had, and we all watched a sunset
                that you will not forget easily.

                Nothing more than perfection."

                choices and all delicious. All the staff provided great service both in the run up to the wedding and on the day. Everything went
                very smoothly.

                Our family stayed in The Courtyard which is fantastic accommodation, and it’s great to stay at the venue.

"An exceptional day in an outstanding location! Our wedding at Tunnels Beaches was all we could have asked for and more.

                From start to finish the team were extremely responsive to all of our requests. We were impressed by how they accommodated
                the extensive list of dietary requirements of the wedding party to produce the most delicious buffet suitable for all guests. It’s
                not surprising Tunnels Beaches has been recognised for the superb quality of its food and provision - the food was a talking
                point all evening!

                The friendliness and attentiveness of all staff before, during and after our wedding made what could have been a hectic day
                seamless, from quickly answering our many emails, dealing with spilt juice on a flower girl dress, to managing our ceremony
                music without a glitch. We can’t speak more highly of them.

                Our day was absolutely perfect. Most guests had not visited Tunnels Beaches before and commented on how extraordinary the
                venue is. Some guests even commented how they were glad their wedding day didn’t have the follow ours!

                Thank you to everyone at Tunnels Beaches for your hard work and for the opportunity to be married at your beautiful wedding
                venue. We feel incredibly lucky and would recommend anyone considering Tunnels Beaches to visit... our search stopped here!"

"Well, what can we say... Our wedding on 01.08.18 could not have been more perfect. It exceeded our expectations in so many
                ways. The staff in particular were all exceptional - so kind and attentive but also very relaxed and positive. We had many people
                comment on how great they all were. You all made Mark and I feel very relaxed and comfortable - it’s really appreciated. Before
                we could think of things that needed to be done, they were already done for us by you guys!

                The venue looked better then we could have imagined on the day and it all flowed so smoothly. Everything we asked for was done
                without hesitation. The food in particular had SO many positive comments from our guests, including ‘the best food we’ve ever
                had at a wedding’ and there was a lot too which was great! I could eat that every day.

                The accommodation too was perfect - again our guests were amazed by it. We all felt like we were tucked away in our own little
                paradise. Having three days with our closest friends and family, in such a cool place, was irreplaceable.

                All in all, amazing. We had the best 3 days of our lives and really want to thank you all for the part you played in that. We didn’t
                want to leave!"

                Your team worked so hard to ensure we didn't have to worry about anything, being available but not intrusive. So fab at
                their jobs, which left us to just enjoy our wedding day in your beautiful venue, with the sun shining brightly on the beach with
                our friends and family.

                The food was amazing, The Bath House stunning. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day."

"We instantly fell in love with Tunnels Beaches on a rainy April afternoon in 2017 and couldn't wait to book it for our wedding
                in July 2018. From the beginning the team were exceptionally helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests were
                completely blown away by everything and lots of people have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

                The venue is so unique and special. Even though everything is run so seamlessly it still has an amazing laid back feel which is
                exactly how we wanted our wedding day to be. Being massive foodies we spent a while deciding on the BBQ menu and were
                completely blown away by all the food on the day - it was awesome! The staff during the day were so helpful and laid back that
                everything just worked like magic.

                Big thank you to The Wedding Spinner Paul Barrington who we had DJ all day and he really got the vibe of day and the dance
                floor full in the evening. Matt Fryer was an amazing photographer and captured the day perfectly for us. Our amazing flowers
                by Kelly from Offshore Blooms were just what I wanted and better than I expected. Also Rachel from Isabelle Grace Make Up
                and Liv from Salt Hairdressers made us look our best. Everyone was from the recommended list that Tunnels provide which
                made it really easy for us.

                We really cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so wonderful."

"We cannot thank Jamie and the team enough for giving us such an amazing day. Our wedding day was everything we dreamed
                it would be and more, and the incredible setting of Tunnels Beaches, along with the fantastic team made it all possible.

                Every single one of our guests was so impressed with the staff, and they'll be thinking about the food that was served for years
                to come... We certainly hope to return and taste the delights again!

                The Courtyard was the perfect accommodation, and the bridal suite is incredible. We enjoyed a really relaxed few days there
                before the wedding, and my only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer afterwards - we were so sad to leave!

                There is nothing I could fault about our day, even the weather was amazing (always a risk for a beach wedding in the UK)!
                Thank you to you all for everything."

"We were dead set on getting married abroad. We wanted to get married by the sea and didn't even consider the UK an option
                because when do we ever get nice weather in the UK hey? After visiting various places in Italy we came to see Tunnels Beaches
                just for some perspective and absolutely loved it. Part of the reason we wanted to go abroad was to create a weekend with our
                loved ones and not just a day. By booking The Bath House and The Courtyard next door we were totally able to do this and the
                fact our beloved dog could walk down the aisle with us sealed the deal.

                The venue is stunning and because they just do weddings - they know exactly what they're doing. Every email answered
                immediately, no problem to ask lots of questions, do things differently or change plans.

                The food was out of this world, the view is not just stunning but uninterrupted. We didn't appreciate until the day itself the fact
                that no one can see in. You have your own venue, your own beach and the most amazing view. The staff were so helpful and
                friendly. We had THE best day. Thank you to all the team at Tunnels Beaches."

"To everyone in the Tunnels Beaches team… you were amazing! Thank you!

                We first saw Tunnels Beaches on a rainy day while it was undergoing renovations in January 2017 and thought it was beautiful
                so when we came back and saw the finished building we were completely blown away! The scenery is magical (so many of our
                guests commented that it was like the set from the Mama Mia Movie) and the building itself is decorated so beautifully that
                you don’t need to do anything yourself if you don’t want to.

                From when Jamie first showed us around the venue, to the visits and speedy replies to our questions in the lead up to the
                wedding nothing was too much trouble for you all. We really appreciated your list of recommended suppliers. We booked
                Roger Styles as our musician for the whole day - who was fantastic! Amy Elizabeth did my beautiful make-up. Brigitte Fisher
                did my hair which I absolutely loved and Oli (McGivern Photography) and James (Motion Farm Wedding Films) were a joy to
                have around and have captured the day via photos and video perfectly!

                All the staff guided us through the day itself seamlessly; everything just seemed to happen without us even having to think
                about it. The staff are like ninjas; chairs were put out and removed with the blink of an eye and they appear just as you might
                need something. A huge thank you to the Chef. The food was to die for! We managed to try a bit of everything we had ordered
                and it all was fantastic.

                We are so grateful to you all for giving us the most incredible day. We can’t wait to return for picnics and champagne on the
                beach for our anniversaries!"

"Tunnels Beaches is a completely magical venue. The views and beaches are incredible and the venue itself is spacious and works
                perfectly for the flow of the day. Leading up to the wedding, staff were always happy to help, they let us look round after we had
                booked and were very quick to respond to any queries which put my mind at rest.

                On the day, staff were attentive but discreet so we really felt like it was our venue for the day. The food was sensational - all
                our guests commented on it - drinks were fab and general service was brilliant. We particularly appreciated the subtle help at
                the beginning of the ceremony where the staff told bridesmaids when to walk down the aisle as that was something we didn’t
                have the headspace for at the time.

                Thank you for making our day better than we could’ve imagined, we will be recommending Tunnels Beaches to friends and family
                and look forward to returning for our anniversary in the future..."

"The best venue with the best food and phenomenal service and this is just how the guests described Tunnels Beaches!

                Seriously, the most amazing day of our lives, we cannot thank the Tunnels team enough and just wish we could do it all again
                and would recommend this venue to anyone.

                We fell in love with the Tunnels Beaches venue from the minute we saw it on a drizzly March afternoon in 2017 and were super
                lucky to get a Saturday in 2018 and what a perfect day it was. From our first visit Jamie and his team have been fantastic, from
                the speedy email responses, to our visits beforehand and our special day the service has been incredible and was absolutely
                seamless throughout the day.

                With such extensive food choices and help from the team it was easy to feed our guests with various food allergies. It was the
                most sensational BBQ. We had vegans who became meat eaters for the day and second helpings galore all because the food was
                so amazing!

                We booked the Courtyard after only seeing the plans and were totally blown away when we arrived; just stunning accommodation
                with fantastic modern and spacious living areas and rooms with beautiful décor. Perfect for spending time with family and friends
                and getting ready on our wedding day.

                A day the Keith and I, and our guests will never forget. We can’t wait to come back for our anniversaries..."

"'Flawless!' That is the only word we would use to describe the service we received upon initial contact, straight through to our
                wedding day with the team at Tunnels Beaches! They really have things perfected down to a T, to allow any couple to have a truly
                unique day. Even though they do hundreds of weddings a year, you really didn't feel like you were another wedding on a conveyer
                belt, they really do make you feel special.

                Myself and my new husband along with our family and friends all thought the food was outstanding, with most guests saying it was
                the best food that they had ever had at a wedding. Topped off with the beautiful location and venue itself, it's really not hard to
                fall in love with Tunnels Beaches. The staff were attentive when needed, but most of the time we felt like we had the whole venue
                to ourselves as they were all so discreet in the background working their magic.

                Many thanks again for making our day so flawless and one that not only Gaz and I will remember, but all our family and friends
                will remember too.

                To all the team at Tunnels Beaches, you have created a truly unique venue that will be very special to us for years to come."

"Jamie, thank you so much. You and your team have been amazing. From the first visit Catherine was fantastic and made us feel
                so welcome and relaxed. In the build up to the day both Tanya and Catherine were so accommodating (even of the copious amounts
                of glitter...) And on the day, Jacs handled everything expertly. She was so relaxed and guided us through the timings, nothing was
                too much trouble... even sifting through the bin to find the Grooms speech...(oops).

                All the guests loved the wedding and I can't kid myself to think it was just about the ceremony! The venue is beautiful and is the
                perfect setting for a truly magical wedding.

                Staying at the Courtyard made the wedding even more special. We invited the whole wedding back for a late morning brunch
                the following day. It was perfect as the actual wedding is such a whirlwind of a day so having such a beautiful and relaxed space
                to host in was ideal. About 40 people came and enjoyed some simple food and the space to sit in the sun. It was also such a
                beautifully decorated house that made each moment of the wedding feel extra special.

                We honestly had the most amazing day ever and would whole heartily recommend Tunnels Beaches for the perfect wedding venue!!"

"We viewed Tunnels Beaches on a rainy day in January in 2016, we had been engaged a few months but were struggling to find
                a laid back, beach type of venue that fit all of our criteria. We found Tunnels Beaches online and were quite sure we were going
                to book when we saw the pictures, but we just wanted to make sure it was as beautiful as it looked online. Travelling down from
                Manchester, over 5 and a half hours we were absolutely not disappointed! Tunnels Beaches was even more beautiful than we could
                have ever imagined. The thought of our guests coming down the tunnel itself and saying our "I do's" under the gazebo, with a BBQ
                wedding breakfast was the dream and we booked instantly.

                We had a bit of a wait from then, as most weekend dates were booked for the following couple of years. We were finally wed in
                June 2018, we had beautiful weather amazing scenery and our nearest and dearest surrounding us. The sunset over the sea and
                rugged cliffs was incredible and had everybody in awe after what was simply the most perfect day.

                The team at Tunnels Beaches are amazing and on hand with questions over email, I also set up a call with Jacs too before our day
                just to settle my own nerves more than anything. I needn't have worried as the staff's smiling faces greeted us as we arrived and
                nothing was too much trouble for the rest of the day. Ben, in the evening was also amazing, everything ran like clockwork and it
                simply was magical. Thank you so much for all of your support throughout the whole thing!"

"Thank you so much for making our wedding day incredible!

                We were so lucky with the sun, and lucky to have an awesome team like you guys running the show! You answered all our finickity
                little questions that came to you in a constant email stream from a confused bride and stressed out Maid of Honour/Wedding Planner!!
               
                Nothing was too much trouble, you were so accommodating to our every need and everyone remained immensely professional
                throughout the whole experience, especially on the day!

                Craig - the food was to die for!! I sampled everything I could and it was all put together with so much attention to detail and
                presented beautifully. You informed us about the foods we could and couldn't have with the dietary requirements so efficiently.
                We had such lovely comments from our guests about the food.

                People were so taken with the venue that most of the photos the guests have taken are of the view and not us! It really is an amazing
                little gem and I'm so glad Rhys found it, I think it was the best beach venue we could ask for, Jamie and the team should be very
                proud of what they've created there.

                We had a spectacular day, it all ran seamlessly and we can't thank you enough!"

"We held our wedding at Tunnels Beaches on 07/05/18 and it was the most perfect day.

                The location/facilities on offer will always draw people to having their wedding at Tunnels Beaches but from the very moment
                we met Jamie and his staff back in June 2017 they did everything to make sure our wedding was perfect and for that we are
                truly grateful.

                We stayed in the newly refurbished "The Courtyard" which is even better than the photos make it look. It is a great communal
                space and having all the bridal party together in such an awesome space for a couple of days beforehand set a great tone for
                the weekend.

                The wedding day itself was seamless which is largely due to the professional nature of Jacs and her team. Nothing is too much
                trouble and nothing is left to chance. The food was absolutely lovely and drew compliments from all who ate it. Our pianist
                and
band were able to set up and run to time and people drunk and danced all night. There was certainly a few sore heads the
                next day.

                Thanks to Jamie, Catherine, Tanya, Jacs and all the team behind the scenes, we had the day of our dreams and one which we
                will remember forever. I only wish we could do it all again. If you do hold your wedding at Tunnels Beaches, and I recommend you
                absolutely do, remember to take it all in..."

"How do we try and put how great our wedding was into words... We honestly didn’t think it would ever be as perfect as it actually
                was - so our advice is to just book Tunnels Beaches so you can truly understand!

                We first went to view Tunnels Beaches on the worst possible day - It was freezing cold, torrential rain and blowing a gail, but once
                we stood upstairs looking out at the view, dripping wet and a little miserable, our mood changed and we knew this was the perfect
                wedding venue!

                On the day itself we had the total opposite weather - in fact it was the hottest May Day bank holiday weekend on record. The day
                would have been fantastic either way, but the weather really did make it the best day ever.

                From initial contact the Tunnels team were just fantastic, usually answering my emails within minutes, which is great when you
                are mid-panic that you have forgotten something. At every step we were made to feel like we were the only wedding that they
                were hosting, which is no mean feat when they have weddings almost everyday. On the day itself, as a bride you really are
                leaving everything in their capable hands, and at no point did I feel stressed or worried, they have a knack of asking you
                questions/informing you of things without you even noticing. The whole day was relaxed, fun and seamless.

                The food was incredible, I cannot thank Craig enough for what he did, as a Bride with a gluten intolerance, the one thing I didn't
                want on my wedding day was to worry about what I could or couldn’t eat, but I also didn’t want the guests to suffer. Craig ensured
                we had an entire gluten free menu which was absolutely delicious. My only regret on our wedding day was not going to get any
                of the paella (due to having too much fun on the dance floor) - I know some guests had more than 4 portions, it was THAT good!

                A massive shout out to our photographers Dan and Stu (D&A Photography) who gave us the most amazing shots, Natasha (Pumpkin
                & Pye) for our beautiful flowers, Connie (Iconic Hair and Makeup) for making me feel absolutely amazing! Michael G Moore
                (The Piano Man) who played from the ceremony to late evening (although everyone wanted him to stay all night - and he would
                have done), and finally Sebastian (Offbeat Entertainment) who had a hard act to follow, but so many guest have said it was the
                best playlist they have heard at a wedding and he kept the dance floor full until the early hours! The tunnels team ensured that
                they all worked seamlessly together!

                Our favourite part of the day was after our first dance all our guests joined us on the terrace, as the sun started to set dancing
                to The Piano Man, all having the best time, with huge smiles on their faces and dancing together.

                All of our guests are still talking about our Wedding a month and a half later - with all of them saying it was the best wedding
                they have ever been too.

                It truly was the best day of our lives and we wish we could do it all over again! We really cannot thank you enough!"

"Friday 4th May 2018 at Tunnels Beaches was everything we dreamt of, and more!!

                With being further away, we tried to get as much organised as possible to make it easy for the staff to know how we’d like our
                day to be. But I didn’t need to worry, they were fantastic! From booking the venue, to the day itself, Jamie, Tanya and Catherine
                made everything so easy. All were quick with answers and so accommodating when we needed help with ideas!

                Our day ran so smoothly from beginning to end thanks to Jacs and we couldn’t have asked for more. It’s always been a dream
                of mine (the bride) to get married close to the beach and Tunnels Beaches was perfect! Our friends and family said how amazing
                the venue and scenery was, along with the food! Just incredible! We wish we could do it all over again and won’t ever be able
                to express how grateful we are for all Tunnels Beaches did for us. A day that will be with us forever."

"We really wanted a wedding by the sea; being based in rural Gloucestershire we didn’t think this would be possible! We took
                a punt and travelled to see Tunnels Beaches... nothing prepared us for this breath-taking venue! We pretty much knew then
                and there that this was the place...

                Living nearly 3 hours away, we thought it would be difficult for planning, but the Tunnels team were fantastic. They quickly
                reassured us and answered any questions we had, no matter how trivial it seemed. On the day the team were so professional;
                there were no worries from us about timings, it all just simply happened.

                The Bath House was perfect. It made our whole wedding trip much easier being only metres away from the venue - especially
                with four young nieces and nephews in tow, who were taken to go rock pooling on the Ladies Beach whilst wedding prep. in
                the morning was in full swing!

                The food was INCREDIBLE. Not having done a tasting beforehand felt like a bit of a gamble, but we needn’t have worried.
                The food was the best we’ve ever had at a wedding, and lots of our guests said the same... delicious.

                So many venues stop the music at midnight, but we were able to dance until 2am at Tunnels, which was a winner!

                We can’t thank the whole Tunnels team enough for everything. Literally the best day of our lives!"

"I grew up in North Devon so when we got engaged I knew exactly where I wanted to get married and Tunnels Beaches did not
                disappoint. From the moment we stepped through the tunnel we knew it was the venue for us and did not look back. It has such
                a relaxed feel, which is exactly what we wanted.

                Jamie and the staff were fantastic from start to finish, making sure the day was perfect for us and answering any questions at
                any time of the day.

                The day was perfect and we were lucky enough to have the sun shining all day. Our guests were wowed at the venue and the views
                and loved spending time down on the beach.

                The food was incredible, our guests were raving about the BBQ, ice-cream and pasties and we have had lots of comments about
                it being the best wedding food they have ever had.

                We had both the Bath House and The Courtyard which was perfect for our family and friends and meant we could celebrate for
                the whole weekend.

                We would also like to thank The Wedding Spinner (DJ) for keeping the dance floor packed the entire night. Another massive
                thank you to Luna (photographers) who captured the day so perfectly.

                We really cannot thank everyone enough, we had the most perfect day and have been told my many of our guests it was the best
                wedding they have ever been to."

"I have been struggling to find the words to describe Tunnels Beaches and our wedding, and have been putting off writing
                this as it sort of feels like closure! It all feels like a dream and I am absolutely gutted it is all over. From the moment I found
                Tunnels Beaches after searching online through hundreds of venues I knew it was special. When you walk through the tunnels
                to the venue you will understand. It just takes your breath away and transports you to another place.

                Jamie met us on a grey, rainy day and our eyes still lit up at the beauty of Tunnels Beaches. The views are spectacular,
                the venue incredible and the attention to detail in Tunnels Beaches, The Bath House and The Courtyard accommodation
                are fantastic. We knew we wanted it immediately.

                In the build up to the day Jamie and the team were tremendously helpful and accommodating, from the food choices to the
                table decorations. It felt like someone was holding our hands throughout.

                We booked The Bath House and The Courtyard for 3 nights over the wedding weekend and it was the best experience.
                The accommodation was fantastic. We had paella on the first night arranged by Tunnels Beaches and it was absolutely superb.
                It was meant to be for 60 guests but almost everyone had seconds.

                On the morning of our wedding it was drizzling and I spoke with Jacs and the team as I was desperate to have the ceremony
                outside. They were brilliant and got the white umbrellas and blankets ready. I got my wish to have it outside despite the rain
                and the sun came out in the end.

                The canapés, ice cream tricycle and food were delicious. Every dish we picked was perfect. Everyone said it was the best
                wedding food they had tasted and we strongly agree. Although whoever gave my daughter a chocolate ice cream from the
                tricycle before the photos were taken is in trouble!!

                All of the staff were friendly and so helpful throughout the day, they were attentive and always checking we were ok. Nothing
                was too big an ask for them.

                We are eternally grateful for Tunnels Beaches’ recommendations of Matt Fryer (photographer), The Wedding Spinner (DJ),
                Roger Styles (vocalist/guitarist), Sweet Williams Flowers, Changing Faces (hair & make up) & Sarah Nardoni (babysitter).

                Tunnels, we cannot thank you enough for everything. I am getting teary writing this as it was the best thing we have ever done;
                not just the wedding but finding a place as special as Tunnels Beaches."

"Amazing venue for the wedding of our dreams!

....... . ... We fell in love with Tunnels as soon as we saw it, and booked it there and then. The beach and sea views are absolutely stunning
....... . ... and it is all tucked away between the cliffs, it is the perfect backdrop. It was such a relaxed vibe and exactly want we wanted for
....... . ... our wedding.

....... . ... The staff were amazing from the initial planning to the day, answering questions and just being there whenever you needed
....... . ... something, they really went the extra mile to help make it special. They were really friendly and expert and that helped with
....... . ... any nerves! The food was amazing and we received so many comments on how great it was.

....... . ... We had the best day, and to sum up our wedding photographer “if Carlsberg did wedding venues” then Tunnels Beaches would
....... . ... be the winner hands down. Thank you for everything, Tunnels Beaches will always hold a special place in our hearts.

....... . ... Thanks again, it really was an awesome day!"

"Tunnels Beaches was the first wedding location we visited and the last. We knew we wanted our special day to be here.
....... . ... We wanted to get married on a beach and have a beautiful backdrop while we made our vows. Tunnels had the most beautiful
....... . ... and most breathtaking views. The beach has beautiful grey sands which makes it so unique. The location is so enclosed and
....... . ... protected that it makes your day private for you and your guests.

....... . ... The staff were wonderful. They looked after you through the day and night and kept you on schedule. The food was one of the
....... . ... best parts!.. You ate until you were stuffed and they had beautiful local produce. There is also so much choice so everyone,
....... . ... no matter what could have a big plate full of food.

....... . ... We cannot recommend Tunnels Beaches enough. Our day was so magical and so beautiful and we can’t wait to come back
....... . ... and visit again on our anniversary."

....... . ... "We had an absolutely amazing wedding day at Tunnels – thank you to everybody involved. Our wedding day happened to coincide
....... . ... with Storm Brian, with weather so bad that the rest of Tunnels was shut to the public, but none of this put a dampener on our day.
....... . ... The indoor ceremony space is absolutely beautiful with incredible views of the sea, so to anybody concerned about not being able
....... . ... to get married outdoors if the weather is bad then we would definitely tell you not to worry – it was still perfect. The views of the
....... . ... storm and the crashing sea just made it even more atmospheric and special.

....... . ... The food was utterly amazing. We had a difficult time deciding what to choose for the BBQ buffet as everything sounded delicious.
....... . ... Large numbers of our guests have commented that it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. Thank you to the Chef and
....... . ... kitchen staff!

....... . ... We stayed in the Bath House for the weekend and it made everything extremely easy and relaxed.

....... . ... All the staff at Tunnels were an absolute delight, and were extremely helpful from the moment we arrived that morning. The day
....... . ... ran really smoothly, and we both felt as if we were being gently carried along in the event we’d planned, without having to worry
....... . ... about any of the detail on the day itself.

....... . ... You will not find better food at any wedding venue... ever! Everyone has commented how incredible the canapés & BBQ were,

....... . ... Booking the Bath House was brilliant too. Such gorgeous accommodation, allowing ease of movement during the day, and allowing

....... . ... The views, the staff, the venue, the food... a perfect combination for an epic weekend. So sad it's all over, but have such

....... . ... was too much trouble and it felt like we were the only couple to ever have a wedding at the Tunnels as you were all so attentive.

....... . ... Huge thanks to the Chefs. The food was awesome and all the guests commented that it was the best wedding food they'd ever tried.
....... . ... I'm trying to convince some of my unmarried friends to get married at Tunnels as I was too over excited at the time to try any
....... . ... canapés and they looked amazing!!! My Dad said they were so good and he ate so many that he struggled to eat his BBQ food. Our
....... . ... vegan photographer who goes to loads of weddings said that it was the best vegan meal she has had at a wedding and my aunty who
....... . ... had the nut allergy loved the fact that you brought her special canapés and food that she was confident she could eat.

....... . ... It goes without saying that the venue itself is amazing! We were lucky with the weather but we are confident it would have also
....... . ... been great if it was rainy and weren't worried at all. The Bath House accommodation was perfect for our families especially those
....... . ... who had children. Everybody loved the fact that we could all relax the day after the wedding, enjoy Ilfracombe and reminisce.
....... . ... It was set up perfectly for us with high chairs, travel cots and thanks very much for the wine!

....... . ... "We are Londoners, however didn't want a traditional London wedding. From the moment we saw Tunnels Beaches back in
....... . ... April 2016, we immediately booked it and didn't even look at any other venues.

....... . ... Planning our wedding from London was no issue as Catherine, Tanya, Jacs and Chef Craig, were always at hand to help. The website
....... . ... is extremely useful to help plan the event and prompt you to consider all situations.

....... . ... We rented The Bath House accommodation and it was a great base - it really added to our overall experience. Beautifully furnished,
....... . ... modern residence with all the mod cons.

....... . ... So, onto our special day... We had our friends and family moaning & groaning about the travel and distance to get to Devon, but
....... . ... when they arrived and saw the stunning scenery - it literally was a 'mic drop' moment! We were lucky enough for a dry (but windy!)
....... . ... day and had our ceremony outdoors. We loved the relaxed feel and our day was truly memorable!

....... . ... Catherine and the Tunnels team accommodated all of our quirky requests, including tweaking the gorgeous Gourmet BBQ to suit
....... . ... our Caribbean palette! Big shout out to Chef Craig and the fantastic jerk chicken!

....... . ... Our guests have been raving how superb the event was with comments such as:
....... . ... 'No lie - hands down, best wedding ever!'
....... . ... 'I feel sorry for anyone getting married after your event - no one can top that'
....... . ... 'EPIC!'
....... . ... 'How on earth did you find such a beautiful venue?'
....... . ... 'Food was out of this World - shoosh don't tell, but we went back for seconds & thirds!'

....... . ... Nothing was too much trouble for Catherine and the gang to make our event tailored to suit our needs and they were extremely
....... . ... easy to communicate and work with. The distance was no problem as they were always at the end of the phone and replied
....... . ... promptly to emails.

....... . ... I don't think Tunnels have had such a mad event and our 'entourage' included our choirmaster - big up to Jules Addison, who
....... . ... conducted our guests to sing our special tunes. The grooms sister is an Opera singer and performed whilst we signed the register
....... . ... (Sarah-Jane Lewis was awesome!) Oliver Pool filmed our Marryoke - check him out too! AMAZING - can't wait to see our finished
....... . ... video. Tanya was our grime violinist - a special surprise from my husband - uber talented and our guests were delighted to be
....... . ... entertained by such a unique artist! DJ Paul (The Wedding Spinner), recommended by the Tunnels crew, truly made our After Party
....... . ... memorable - playing tune after tune after tune. All wrapped up by Andy Wardle photographing and Steve Dibben on filming duty.
....... . ... These guys were highly professional and captured the spirit of our day.

....... . ... As you can see, we can't stop raving about Tunnels - the venue and the team made our wedding so special, we can't thank them
....... . ... enough! Can't wait to go back for our anniversary."

....... . ... "It would be really hard to not have an amazing wedding at Tunnels Beaches. Like so many other people, as soon as we saw it,
....... . ... we knew it was where we wanted to get married - even though it was torrential rain when we looked round! Even in bad weather,
....... . ... it looked so dramatic with stunning views, but we were blessed when the sun came out for us on the day. It really is a location
....... . ... that wowed our family and friends and made it different to any other weddings we've been to. So much so, that when Tom's sister
....... . ... got engaged shortly after our wedding, they're thinking of looking abroad to match the setting and weather that they enjoyed so
....... . ... much at our wedding! Needless to say, it makes for some cracking photos and I'll never forget watching my friends on the beach
....... . ... in their flipflops, throwing frisbees.

....... . ... The staff at the Tunnels are all incredibly professional and they definitely play a huge part in making the day work so well, so
....... . ... a big thank you to Tanya and the team. They were just always there in the background, making everything happen seamlessly
....... . ... and it was so nice that I didn't need to get involved in the running of the day. They just have this remarkable way of making
....... . ... you feel like you're the only ones who get married there, which I know is not the case at all wedding venues. We were so
....... . ... impressed with prompt email responses by the team throughout our time planning the wedding, as we're not local to Devon.

....... . ... The food was great and was loved by meat eaters, veggies and vegans alike, which is no mean feat for almost 120 people.
....... . ... We followed up with dessert and the ice cream tricycle, which went down well with guests. As well as marshmallows over the
....... . ... firepit and sparklers in the evening. We sourced a lot of our suppliers - Pumpkin and Pye (florist), Matt Fryer (photographer),
....... . ... Nibble & Scoff (cakes), Changing Faces (hair and make up) and Roly's Fudge (favours) via the website FAQ's, all of whom I'd
....... . ... highly recommend to others. Jules at Hey Jules for local, personalised gifts, jewellery and my hair piece was also great.

....... . ... If you get the opportunity to stay in Bath House, I'd encourage you to do it as it just made it a whole weekend of memories.
....... . ... We stayed there with our close family and it's such a stunning house... everyone having tea and cake at end of the wedding day
....... . ... and eating together the day after re-living all the different parts of the day, are also memories we wont forget.

....... . ... So yes, just the best venue and really our happiest day ever."

....... . ... All our friends had warned us how stressful planning a wedding was. When we came down for the relaunch party in March we said

....... . ... said "the people who warned you how stressful it was have never planned a wedding at Tunnels Beaches - they take care of
....... . ... everything for you." How true this turned out to be! From the countless questions from our guests to all the little touches on the
....... . ... day. It would be so easy for a venue as spectacular as Tunnels Beaches to rely on the scenery to bring in trade, but this is SO not
....... . ... the case here.

....... . ... The food was amazing and kept coming! All of our guests commented as such. The staff were so friendly and helpful with anything
....... . ... that was asked of them. Brought us canapés when we asked for 10 minutes alone just so we didn't miss out, didn't panic when the
....... . ... bride was running slightly behind schedule, and packed everything up for us after the day including half the groom's clothes which

....... . ... yourself and your booking team has been brilliant. Each time I called, your staff were so knowledgeable that they were able to
....... . ... quickly answer any query I had. It was very comforting to feel in safe hands.

....... . ... Your team on the day ran everything like clockwork. For me, an over worrier and perfectionist, I didn't have to think or worry
....... . ... about anything!!

....... . ... On arrival our guests very quickly understood why we'd hauled them all 4hrs down the road. As we did, they've also fallen for
....... . ... Tunnels. Nearly 6 months on and they are still ranting about it! The stunning views, the AMAZING food, and top service.

....... . ... Our first dance on the terrace has even been featured on a couple of wedding blogs now. Is so nice to see parts of our day
....... . ... crop up on our news feed - it instantly takes us straight back to that magical moment!

....... . ... Thank you for giving us the perfect setting for our day, and for making it flawless!"

....... . ... "We always wanted to get married outdoors by the sea, at a unique venue and were so excited when we came across Tunnels Beaches,
....... . ... and even happier that it was in the UK. We booked the beautiful accommodation at Bath House from Mon - Thurs for our close family
....... . ... and friends, and were able to host drinks the first evening for our guests who had travelled from far and wide. It was fantastic as we
....... . ... stretched our wedding celebrations over three days with our favourite people.

....... . ... As we live a distance from Ilfracombe, we communicated with the brilliant wedding team - Tanya, Catherine and Jamie a lot! They
....... . ... were always really helpful and patient even with the simplest of queries. The venue is stunning and didn't need a lot of decoration,....... . ... ....... . ... we only added splashes of our colour theme and some personal touches. The menu options were amazing, it took us the best part
....... . ... of a day to decide (and agree) on the options, and there is something to meet all dietary requirements.

....... . ... On our wedding day the sun came out for us, the staff were so attentive to our every need, guiding us through the day, keeping
....... . ... things running smoothly without us even noticing, so friendly and happy - even handing over sun cream after hearing us talk about
....... . ... someone getting burnt. We were married outside to the sound of the sea, with a string quartet playing in the background, it was
....... . ... beautiful and so romantic. The food on the day was the most delicious you can imagine!

....... . ... All in all our wedding was even more perfect than we could have dreamed, all of our guests thought it was the best wedding they
....... . ... had ever been to, even the band told us it was the most amazing venue they had played at. If you are looking for somewhere
....... . ... magical to have your special day, you MUST book Tunnels Beaches."

....... . ... "We had the most wonderful wedding day at Tunnels. As wedding planning goes the team made the experience as stress free
....... . ... as possible. The team on the day were fabulous, extremely organised and we did't have to worry about anything on the day apart
....... . ... from the weather. We didn't have the warmest/sunniest day weather wise, but this didn't make the slightest bit of difference
....... . ... to our day, and it made for some fantastic photographs.

....... . ... The food was amazing, all our guests commented on how lovely the food was, and also how much food there was for everyone.
....... . ...
....... . ...
I cannot recommend the venue enough if you are looking for an informal, relaxed but also breath taking wedding venue. Ourselves
....... . ... and our guests were completely blown away. Thank you so much."

....... . ... "Our beautiful beach wedding at Tunnels Beaches was everything we'd dreamed of!We knew when we first viewed it that it was
....... . ... the venue for us. The organisation was easy and at no point did we feel stressed out by the process as the team were great at
....... . ... keeping us informed and helping us to get our arrangements for the big day in place!

....... . ... The morning went with ease and we were both surprised at how calm we felt prior to the ceremony. Our favourite memory will
....... . ... always be walking down that beautiful tunnel with the smell of the sea and the crashing waves setting the most beautiful scene
....... . ... for our special day.

....... . ... The food was spectacular and all our guests left with full bellies and lots of positive comments of how tasty it was. The setting is
....... . ... stunning and there really is no other place like it. What a day! Beautiful memories that we will treasure forever."

....... . ... "We wanted to get married by the sea, so 2 years out from our planned date we started to look at venues near the ocean. We came
....... . ... across a few different places but only ever visited Tunnels Beaches.

....... . ... On a grey winters day in December we met Jamie who gave us the Tunnels tour. Jamie is very personable and professional but to
....... . ... be honest (sorry Jamie!) he didn't really have to say anything because when you see Tunnels you'll know as we did, that this beautiful
....... . ... place would be the venue for our special day.

....... . ... The whole team at Tunnels are amazing. We are not local to Devon and therefore had to plan the majority of our wedding remotely.
....... . ... I can imagine for some this could be difficult but Tanya our Wedding Co-ordinator from Tunnels was so professional, answering every
....... . ... query we had quickly and with care. She made the whole process simple and gave us confidence that our wedding was in good hands
....... . ... as the day got nearer.

....... . ... Our wedding day itself was perfect. We had a mix of weather, sunshine and showers but the venue and staff are very adaptable to
....... . ... cope with anything. From the ceremony right through to the evening entertainment the Tunnels staff were great. They handle all
....... . ... the transitions seamlessly. Most of the day we hardly noticed them but if you did need anything they were at hand to help
....... . ... accommodate any requests we had.

....... . ... You can't write a testimonial about Tunnels without mentioning the food. The gourmet BBQ was fantastic, a real delight. So many
....... . ... of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the meal. The desserts are really yummy.

....... . ... As our special day came to an end we had comments from our guests like "best wedding ever" and "you've set the bar high". There's
....... . ... no doubt that this was in part down to the incredible job the tunnels team performed and of course, this amazing wedding venue."

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

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

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

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

....... . ... and knew nothing else would come close.

....... . ... The staff were incredible, running everything flawlessly and effortlessly solving the issue of our ceremony entertainment not
....... . ... showing up! Many of our guests commented on how superb you all were. A special thanks to Jacs and Naomi! Thank you for
....... . ... everything you did, you made the whole day stress free and enabled us to enjoy every moment!

....... . ... Our guests are still talking about the day, the food, the venue and it means the World that they all thought it was as special

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

....... . ... "Both Sally and I would like to thank you and all the staff at Tunnels Beaches for making our day so special, right from the start
....... . ... nothing has been too much trouble and we had nothing to worry about on the day as all the staff worked tirelessly to ensure
....... . ... everything was taken care of.

....... . ... Sally has always wanted to get married by the sea and when we found Tunnels as a venue we were blown away. I will never forget
....... . ... the first time I came down through the Tunnels and turned the corner to see such an amazing view, it is absolutely stunning and
....... . ... all our guests still keep commenting on it.

....... . ... The BBQ was outstanding and Sweet Williams Florist in Ilfracombe did a fantastic job with the flowers. Roger Styles played three
....... . ... chosen songs by us for the ceremony and entertained all our guests throughout the afternoon and evening, he was brilliant and
....... . ... we are so glad we went with your recommendation of him.

....... . ... Our day was just perfect in every way, even the weather was kind to us and we will most definitely be back to visit!..."
