"We got married at Tunnels Beaches in October 2023 and asides a chilly sea breeze, it was everything we hoped it would be.

                When we began searching for a venue back in 2022, we based our search on locations we hold dear to us, mountains and
                coastline. It didn't take us long to realise that Tunnels was the place for us! We booked the venue without a viewing as we
                could see it was everything we wanted for a unique, relaxed and memorable wedding day and I'm do pleased we did!

                The day itself was perfect. Everything we pictured came to life, it's just a shame the day goes so quickly.

                Our guests are still saying how stunning and different the venue was, which made their travelling efforts from Essex all
                worthwhile. Our photo's turned out beautifully, the backdrop is unbeatable and the mood and rustic vibe the venue offers
                is breathtaking.

                Food was super tasty; everyone enjoyed their meal and the staff coped amazingly well catering for all our guests needs.

                We had two of the Tunnels houses for our wedding (The Woodlands & Runnymede House) and both were stunning and
                comfortable. The decor is so unique and more, which also made for great pictures.

                Big thank you to all the Tunnels team, each and everyone of you helped us when needed and made sure our day went as
                smoothly as it could. I just wish we could do it all again!"

"We had the most perfect wedding day thanks to the amazing team at Tunnels. The venue is just breathtaking, and the team
                are so accommodating, kind and laidback - they made us and all our guests feel so comfortable. Even in the run-up to the day,
                nothing was too much bother for them and everyone on the team was so helpful and gave us so many fab ideas for the day.

                So many of our guests have said it's undoubtedly the best wedding venue they've ever been to, and we agree! Thank you for
                making it the best day we could ever have hoped for, we're very grateful!"

                commented how beautiful the venue is and how relaxed our day was.

                We were so lucky with the weather and the food was delicious. There’s nothing that the team didn’t help with on the day and

"Just want to say a huge thank you for all you did for our wedding on Tuesday Oct 3rd. Our wedding day could not have been
                better. The venue is breathtakingly beautiful. It was better than we had even imagined.

                Staff went above and beyond. The bar staff in the evening were exceptional. The Managers Naomi (day) & Sam (eve) were
                outstanding and couldn't do enough - they are a credit to Tunnels, so just want to say a big thank you."

"After deciding we wanted a venue by the sea we were so excited to find Tunnels, and on our first viewing we booked right
                away after falling in love with the place. After two years of planning our day it was everything we wanted and more – we had
                major wedding blues leaving this gorgeous venue.

                Jamie and the team where great from the get-go with constant email confirmation and nothing was an inconvenience, they
                were only too happy to make our vision a reality, even having our beloved dog at the service. All the staff were incredible
                and made us feel at ease. The morning of the wedding the wedding manager took all our items and made sure what we had
                envisioned was carried out to a T.

                The accommodation was great and was so lovely to have a nearest and dearest getting ready with us on our special day.

                Walking down the tunnels towards my future husband is a feeling I will never forget, everything went so smoothly, no hiccups
                at all. We even got to have our first dance outside surrounded by all our family with sparklers.

                Our wedding day will be a memory we will cherish, we can’t thank Tunnels enough, we can’t wait to visit on our anniversary."

"We are so delighted that we picked Tunnels Beaches for our wedding venue. As soon as we viewed it just after getting
                engaged, we knew it was the place for us - we fell in love with the building and dramatic, stunning coastal scenery. Since
                booking, the journey has been seamless. We visited several times and had numerous email exchanges with the team in the
                two years leading up to the big event.

                Our wedding day (15th September 2023) was spectacular. The weather was perfect, the venue looked amazing, the food was
                delicious and plentiful, and there were so many special moments, which we have enjoyed going back over in our professional
                photographs. We need to give a special mention to Jamie and the team (including Catherine and Sam) - they were warm,
                welcoming, responsive and nothing was ever too much trouble. Everything went to plan, other than we ran an hour late in the
                evening (our fault!) and team were very agile in helping us get back on track. So many of our guests were blown away by the
                venue and food, and people are still talking about it weeks later.

                We can't thank you enough, and look forward to coming back for anniversaries."

"Firstly, we want to thank all your wonderful staff for all their hard work. Every single person we spoke to on the day made us
                feel at ease. It was brilliant to put on such a big occasion but feel so relaxed, and that really was down to all the people onsite.

                The preparation towards the wedding was also excellent, with all questions being answered in depth and we never felt like we
                couldn't reach out with other thoughts! The fact that we were able to make small changes to the drinks package meant the
                world to us.

                The day after the wedding, we were grateful that our stuff had been moved to the room nearer the accommodation, it made
                the get out a lot smoother.

                The accommodation was excellent! It truly felt like a home away from home, but big enough to have all our friends and family
                get to know one another. The welcome baskets were a lovely touch - thank you so much for the wine!

                We really loved the fact that we could dance outside, and that the sound system allowed us to feel like the DJ was outside with
                us, I can't imagine many other places have this facility! It was honestly like a scene from a movie dancing in the moonlight,
                next to the sea and with the firepit!

                Again, we can't thank you all enough for helping us create the most perfect wedding day, we will certainly be back!"

"Will & I just wanted to say thank you so much to the incredible Tunnels Beaches team. We couldn't have asked for a more
                perfect day! From the moment we booked the venue, right the way through to when we checked out the morning after the
                wedding, the Tunnels team including all the office staff, the venue staff, accommodation cleaners etc, were incredible.
                I live fairly local so had visited the venue a few times and nothing was ever too much to ask, even with all my last minute
                questions and requests!

                The morning of the wedding the venue host came to the accommodation and talked me through everything and answered all
                my nervous questions! She made me feel very relaxed and everything went incredibly smoothly. They closed off the tunnels
                to the public for when you walk down towards the aisle and it was just the most incredible feeling.

                The rest of the day also went very smooth, the venue staff just had everything under control and nothing got delayed. Even the
                change over of staff from day to night was super easy and the venue itself is just the most stunning place, even at night! I was
                lucky enough to have dry weather but even in the rain (or storms which is when we first saw the venue and booked), it is just
                the most incredible, special, unique place. Most of our guests came from Ireland, Northern England and Scotland and couldn't
                get over how beautiful it was. And we can't forget about the BEAUTIFUL food!

                It's a day we will cherish forever, and I'm so glad we live local so we can come back and visit our new favourite place over the
                years to come..."

"To all of the team at Tunnels Beaches, Thank you all so much for helping us bring our perfect wedding day to life. We booked
                it 2 years ago so to see our visions and planning come together was heartwarming. From the beginning, the communication has
                been great - answering questions promptly both over the phone and by email, accommodating our requirements and being on
                hand to help coordinate and facilitate our dream day! You helped to make us feel at ease and ensure that everything ran
                smoothly without any hiccups.

                The venue is absolutely breathtaking and we were so dam lucky with such beautiful weather. The food was delicious and everyone
                was raving about that yummy Mango & Cashew Nut Salad!

                Being able to slip away after the party to stay in the onsite accommodation was great and made the end of our day hassle free
                and easy. Ilfracombe didn't mean much to us before our wedding day but both Ilfracombe and especially Tunnels will now have
                a special place in our hearts forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

                memorable. Communication from the beginning of the process, during our wedding day and after were outstanding with
                many thanks to Naomi who co ordinated the day. She was very organised, helped us feel comfortable and was patient with
                us despite having the wedding from inside to outside because of the rain!

                All staff at Tunnels Beaches were very accommodating which made us feel even more special.

                I would definitely recommend this wedding venue for anyone thinking about it! We are forever grateful for all the support
                and for making our wedding day so special. We will most definitely be returning for our future anniversaries!..."

"We just wanted to say thank you so much to the whole team for an amazing wedding. We had the most magical and special
                day that even Storm Antoni couldn’t put a stop to! Having the ceremony outside was our dream and it happened. We certainly
                think it’s a ceremony that people won’t forget!

                The lead up to the day was not stressful at all and you answered all our questions patiently and quickly. The whole day ran
                so smoothly and the Tunnels team worked brilliantly with our other suppliers, which we knew they would; thank you for all
                the recommendations.

                Thank you also for the amazing food and fantastic party; our guests have said it’s one of the best weddings they’ve ever
                been to. Everyone had a brilliant time and our first dance at sunset was something to remember forever.

                We look forward to visiting you again and maybe having another party in the future!..."

"We just wanted to email to say a HUGE thank you for absolutely everything you’ve done for us over the past 2 years!

                From the moment we booked with you all, you’ve been nothing but helpful! From answering the endless emails and questions
                we’ve had to helping us set up on the big day! It’s been a pleasure and we honestly think you have THE most beautiful wedding
                venue ever. We still dream about our day now and it really couldn’t have gone any better! Rain or shine! We are so lucky and
                grateful that you’re all so organised with back up plans etc. and we’re just so lucky we got to go with plan A! People couldn’t
                stop complimenting our venue and saying how stunning it is.

                Being able to have 3 of the houses was brilliant and really helped make the experience so much more incredible. Being surrounded
                by our family/friends the night before really helped calmed our nerves and helped us to have a nice pre-wedding mingle of
                everyone together! 

                Tunnels really is incredible, not only because of the stunning scenery and views but also because of the staff. The team we had
                on our day were 10/10. They couldn’t have been more accommodating, friendly and helpful! They always made sure our glasses
                were full and that we were eating. They were happy during the day/night and Nay/Sam were brilliant! They knew the venue/day
                like the back of their hands and were reassuring and helpful throughout. No task was too much for them and for that we’re truly
                grateful! We felt in good hands throughout and feel so lucky to have had such a great experience.

                We hope to come and enjoy one of your summer evenings in the future again as Mr & Mrs Duffield!"

"Dear all the wonderful staff and owners at Tunnels Beaches,

                Our wedding with you was just over a week ago and what feels like a dream is now actually beginning to sink in and we wanted
                to share our sincere thanks. From the minute we arrived to stop in The Bath House and The Courtyard we were greeted with
                a warm welcome and truly beautiful accommodation, with lovely little touches such as prosecco and chocolate, that we were
                very grateful of. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed stopping in the accommodation and EVERYBODY was so complementary about
                what a wonderful place to stay it was.

                I was a little nervous about getting the venue set up and things all going as we had imagined throughout the day but all of your
                lovely staff were absolutely brilliant in not only reassuring us but getting everything done exactly how we had always imagined,
                keeping us informed of what was happening throughout the day and liaising with our suppliers behind the scenes to ensure
                things ran very smoothly.

                Many of our guests commented on the day and have done since on how brilliant the venue was but specifically how lovely and
                helpful all the staff were. It was definitely those kind touches we will remember from our day at a very special place, such as
                a lovely young girl telling us she had saved us some scones in case we didn’t get any and going out her way to get glasses of
                Pimm’s to us amongst all our guests! Naomi kindly carried my plate to the table so I could get my dress up the stairs! A very
                kind young man went out his way to organise a taxi and then walk my Auntie and Nan to the top of the Tunnels to be able to
                bring the wheelchair back down (which again was very kindly and usefully provided by you to help make my Nan’s day so much
                easier). During the final songs on the dancefloor a barman held the camera up for a whole song and videoed one of the magical
                moments of the day. To organise the sparklers, s’more station, cake cutting, first dance and all the other logistical parts of
                the day so smoothly for us and our guests to enjoy was very much appreciated. Not only that, but we woke up as a newly
                married couple thinking we had to clear and tidy the venue to find everything was organised into the storage room ready to be
                packed straight into cars, we were absolutely over the moon and sincerely grateful.

                Finally we have to pay a huge compliment to the chef for the food, it really was outstanding! ALL of our guests told us how
                amazing it was with lots saying it was ‘the best wedding dinner they have ever had’. And if that is not enough, my uncle:
                a Michelin star chef went down to the kitchen to specifically thank your chef on such a wonderful range of food as he was
                very impressed.

                I am sure a lot of what we have described above, you do day in day out and may see it as part of the job, but to us the polite
                and friendly approach from all of your staff and everything they did for us really was above and beyond to make the day so
                much more enjoyable and memorable at the most wonderful place.

                Please do thank every member of your team for making it the day we had always hoped for and more."

"We had the most wonderful wedding at Tunnels Beaches 12/07/2023!

                From start to finish we were completely overwhelmed with the beautiful day we had. We had waited almost 15 years for our
                special day & my gosh did Tunnels Beaches deliver in every way! The venue, the staff, the accommodation, the food, everything
                was awesome.

                The best thing about getting married at here, is how smooth the staff try to make every moment, nothing is forced, it's a very
                relaxed vibe throughout your day, things just seem to flow, but in order for you to feel this way behind the scenes the staff are
                like clockwork - they really know what they are doing in order to give you everything you would want your day to be!

                We were extremely lucky as we have had so much rain in July this year, but it held off and we had glorious weather considering
                the original forecast and even though the wind was up, this allowed us to get some amazing pictures with my veil. The joy with
                the Tunnels Beaches is they can accommodate last minute to suit weather conditions for your ceremony, we changed our mind
                last minute with our florist and changed our flower arches, instead of having it all outside we had both corners outside on the
                gazebo and a full beautiful arch indoors, so glad we did as it was the best of both, allowed beautiful pictures inside & out!

                Thank you so much to all the staff for making our long awaited day and stay just perfect!"

"We wouldn’t change a thing about our wedding thanks to Tunnels Beaches, it was absolutely perfect!...

                The communication from the team leading up to the wedding was so efficient, emails were responded to within a couple of hours
                and it meant that the build up was totally stress free for us. Naomi in particular was absolutely brilliant when we arrived at the
                accommodation the afternoon before our wedding, and on our wedding day.

                We booked 3 of the houses to stay in the night before and the night of the wedding and all of our guests commented on how
                amazing the accommodation was. We had a BBQ the evening before the wedding and it was lovely to be able to spend more
                than one day with our guests. The accommodation was spotless, had all of the facilities we needed and I will always remember
                The Bath House so fondly when I think of my wedding morning.

                The venue itself - WOW! So many of our guests have said it’s the best venue they have ever been to and I totally agree. If you
                are after a generally fuss free wedding like we were then I would not hesitate to recommend Tunnels - the scenery speaks for
                itself and the venue is already fully equipped and decorated for weddings meaning that you really don’t need to add much
                (if anything!) It’s the perfect venue for a relaxed, beach wedding which is exactly what we wanted.

                We are big foody people and the BBQ was absolutely delicious. Again, the guests gave excellent feedback and I’m certain that
                nobody went hungry! The Chef also saved us a board of canapés which was such a lovely touch and something I haven’t seen
                done at other weddings, so thank you!

                We just want to say a massive thank you - we were sure that we wouldn’t regret booking Tunnels Beaches for our wedding but
                the staff, venue and suppliers exceeded all of our expectations. We can’t wait to come back soon to celebrate our anniversaries."

"We hired both The Bath House and The Courtyard and loved the fact we could have most of our guests around us the night
                before and the morning of the wedding. The rooms are lovely and clean and well equipped and all our guests commented on
                how lovely the place was.

                Coming from Yorkshire we were aware how long the travel was for our guests but by the end of our wedding they knew why
                we had picked Tunnels as our venue. We had so many comments throughout the day on what a spectacular place Tunnels
                is and we couldn't agree more.

                The set up and organisation was so stress free for me. Tunnels had it all under control. We organised a call with Naomi the
                week before just to run through how everything would work. We were so glad we did just to have that understanding really
                helped settle our nerves.

                The ceremony went by in a flash, music handled expertly and the drinks were served quickly to all our guest. The bar staff
                and waiting staff were excellent. The food was absolutely to die for, plenty of it that a lot of guests could go back for more.
                The chefs and kitchen staff did such a great job.

                Having our speeches in front of such a beautiful view was so special. We had the glass doors open fully until later on in the
                night as the weather was so beautiful.

                We had the most beautiful sunset and enjoyed our first dance outside. We love that the music can be played all around the
                venue so that the transition from outside to inside is seamless.

                We cannot thank Jamie and all the staff at Tunnels enough for making our wedding the most perfect day!"

"Thank you so much to the whole team at Tunnels Beaches for making our wedding day and the wider weekend so special for us.
                The communications were excellent from start to finish, and we knew this was the wedding venue for us as soon as we got to
                see it in person (after watching the excellent youtube walk-through video Jamie made!).

                The venue is like no other in the UK, and so many of our guests have commented on how beautiful, unique and memorable
                the setting is. The state-of-the-art wedding accommodation available 20 seconds away from the venue is a massive bonus,
                and our family/close friends loved the convenience of it.

                Particular highlights of the wedding included still having our ceremony outside as we wanted (despite the rain - the staff were
                so helpful in keeping everyone as dry as possible), the fun bar staff in the evening and keeping the music playing til 2am,
                the food (all incredible, decent quantities and range of dietary choices), s'mores by fire pit, and the organisation of the staff
                on the day itself (including venue set-up).

                Thank you for answering all our many, many questions so promptly (often on Sundays!) and making the weekend go so smoothly
                for us - helped to keep us very calm and relaxed and know everything was in order, to help us enjoy the fun stuff instead!
                We loved our pre-wedding morning swim and thank you for letting our guests use the beach that morning. We know how busy
                the team must be with back-to-back weddings and the response time was pretty incredible.

                We cannot wait to come back and visit already, perhaps on our wedding anniversary for a special meal!

                Would highly recommend this venue to any couples looking for a more relaxed, laid-back beachy vibe (which still has a good 'rain plan'
                if needed) with excellent food and drink."

"The Tunnels was the easiest and best decision of our entire wedding. We couldn’t recommend the venue more highly.
                I think once you’ve seen it, you’ve got no option but to book it! The entire team were brilliant from start to finish.
                They answered my many emails before the day and I felt very comfortable leaving them in charge of the schedule on
                the day itself. We managed to have our service outside, I love that you can decide so last minute depending on the weather.

                The food was incredible, our wedding photographer actually said it was the best wedding food he’d ever had! The morning
                after we went down to clear up and all of the work had already been done, which was such a huge help.

                The houses on site are beautiful and so convenient. I don’t have anything even vaguely negative to say!! Thank you all so
                so much for everything, we can’t wait to return!..."
                Many thanks, Becky & Tim Hawkins x

                "We got engaged in February 2022 and hadn't intended on getting married in the same year! Beth was from Northumberland
                originally and moved down to the South West fairly recently, however somehow found Tunnels Beaches a long time ago,
                so it seemed only right that we checked the venue out. Once we saw the tunnel entrance and when we emerged from the
                tunnel to see the beautiful venue (there was a lot of sea fog that day!) we both just knew it was the place for us. There is
                something about the sea that makes us feel calm and content, and we never actually looked at any other wedding venues.

                We chose the Elopement Package because we knew we didn't want a big day. It was the perfect length of time and allowed
                us to have all our close family. We had a two night stay in The Bath House which was perfect for our families coming together
                who had never met before! Thankfully everyone got along!! All our guests absolutely loved the house, the children played hide
                and seek and we had games in the long dining area. The living room was large enough for all the adults to socialise, and the
                kitchen was well equipped.

                Our day went like a breeze, it was chilled out, exactly as we had hoped. All the staff were extremely helpful, from setting up
                the tables to using my phone to play all the music throughout the day, and finally packing everything away for us at the end
                of the night.

                We kept the wedding venue a secret from our guests so they couldn't google it before arriving. So when they came out of the
                tunnel and saw the view, they were all blown away and everyone said it's the best venue they've ever been to. All our guests
                thoroughly enjoyed the three course meal and commented on how delicious everything was.

                We couldn't have asked for a better day, the weather was beautiful and actually still warm! Our photographer was amazing
                at capturing all the incredible angles of the coastline, and we loved going down onto the beach.

                We can't wait to come back and reminisce!..."
                Best wishes, Beth & Dave

                "It was a dream come true to have our special day at such a beautiful and unique location but what made it even more special
                was the Tunnels team, in particular Jacs and Naomi, for ensuring that the day went as smooth and as perfect as it could.

                The pictures of the venue and its surroundings speak for themselves and the view certainly does not disappoint on the day
                but what they don't show is how calm, efficient, helpful and lovely the staff are. We couldn't have asked for more, the food
                was delicious, the service was amazing and the venue and accommodation were breath-taking, we didn't want the day/night
                to end. Can't wait to visit again soon!...

                A massive thanks to the whole team for such a perfect day!"

                "Now things have settled after the wedding and normal life has resumed, we just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for hosting
                our Wedding at Tunnels Beaches. It really is just the most incredible venue, so much so that people who didn't attend our wedding,
                couldn't believe we weren't abroad.

                The team were fab from start to finish. You are all so amazingly chilled and experienced, it really puts your mind at rest. Any
                questions we did have were answered immediately.

                I'm sorry we can't remember the 2 ladies names who helped make sure everything went smoothly on the day, (lots going on!)
                but special shout out to them. Both were fab.

                The food is next level, we thought it would be good but it exceeded expectations.

                The accommodation is just perfect for large groups of family and friends. Having an ensuite in each bedroom makes all the
                difference and the communal areas are so large, you don't feel at all like you are on top of each other. The lasagne on the
                Friday night before the wedding was delicious!

                I would recommend this venue to anyone."

                "We just want to say a massive thank you for everything, to yourself and all your staff. You have such an amazing venue
                and have thought about every little detail to make it the perfect wedding venue. The moment we walked round the corner
                from the Tunnel and saw the venue, we knew it was the one - we didn't need to visit anywhere else, it's truly unique.

                The booking process, communication leading up to our wedding day was all so stress free.

                It was so amazing have the luxury of staying in the three beautiful houses the night before. It gave our family and friends
                a chance to meet and get to know each other before the big day. The Paella went down a treat!

                The wedding morning everything was super stress free, nothing was too much of a problem. For a control freak like me,
                I could relax and know that everything was in safe hands of your wonderful staff. While the girls were getting ready in
                The Bath House, the boys went on a 5k run followed by a dip in the tidal pool.

                The food was amazing as we expected! Everyone has been raving about the Cornish pasties!! I think the best man won
                having eaten 5!!

                We will definitely be coming back next year! We love Devon so much."

                "Where do we start… Me and Jamie got engaged in July 2020, neither of us knew much about wedding but we were 100%
                sure we wanted a beach wedding.

                We had trolled the internet for wedding venues and we was lucky enough to have come across Tunnels Beaches, the wedding
                venue we fell in love with from the word go.

                We booked to the view Tunnels Beaches in September, two months after being engaged. The moment we stepped foot into
                Tunnels Beaches our breath was taken away and we knew this was where we wanted to get married.

                Our wedding was on Wednesday 7th September 2022, we stayed with all of our wedding guests in the on-site accommodation
                (The Courtyard, The Bath House and The Woodlands). This was booked Tuesday-Friday. We would recommend this to everyone.
                The accommodation was stunning, it was lovely and modern and super clean too. It also gave us the chance to spend time with
                our family and friends before and after the wedding and the fact we travelled 5 hours from home no one had to worry about
                getting a taxi. You could simply walk/stumble through the tunnel back to the accommodation.

                The wedding day itself was like a fairytale come true. There was meant to be thunder and lightning all day but there was almost
                no cloud in the sky! We cannot thank the staff anymore for making the day run so smoothly from the lead up, to walking down
                the aisle and the evening partying. So many of our guess have mentioned how lovely you all are and I can’t agree more, you have
                all been absolutely amazing from the lead up to the wedding until the day we left.

                A massive hats off to the Chefs aswell - the food was to die for and weren't shy on the portion sizes either. Although I didn’t try
                one of the pasties because I was way too full from dinner, so many of the guests commented on how amazing they were.

                You have all helped to make our wedding day so very special and for that we cannot thank you enough and will forever sing your
                praises. We will definitely be back in the future to celebrate our anniversaries.

                Looking forward to visiting again in the future..."

                "Tunnels Beaches is 100% the most amazing venue in the UK. The views, food and staff are all incredible.

                We booked without viewing (due to not being able to travel during the pandemic) in 2020. The team were great with sending
                us photos, video tours and answering all our questions. And when we finally were able to visit, the venue did not disappoint!
                We also booked all of our suppliers from their recommended list and were super happy with all of them.

                On the day, everything went so smoothly, even the bits I was worried about, like setting up the tables and controlling the music.
                It's seamless and you don't need to worry about a thing. The food was AMAZING (we're still getting compliments now) and there
                was plenty of it. And obviously, the venue itself and the beautiful views are incomparable.

                We also booked ' The Woodlands' accommodation which is fantastic - modern, roomy and super close by! It was so nice to have
                all of our family under one roof. And the kitchen delivered our dinner the evening before (green Thai chicken curry - delish)
                which was really convenient and meant we could just relax.
 
                Massive thanks to the whole team, in the lead-up and on the day of the wedding. Everyone was super helpful and always smiling
                - we couldn't ask for better service!

                All of our guests have said that it was an amazing day, in such a beautiful part of the country. We couldn't be happier and would
                definitely recommend. So if you're on the fence, book it!"

                "First and foremost can we say a massive thank you for having such a unique wedding venue. We are so lucky to have this on
                our doorstep.

                Our accommodation was 'Runnymede House'. It was lovely to have such a stunning place to get ready in. The accommodation
                is decorated beautifully and we wish our house looked like this - such a fantastic style!!

                The staff were fantastic from the moment we booked to the day. They answered every question and believe us we had many!
                They were so good on the day, you didn’t need to worry at all as everything was taken care for by the lovely staff. Nothing was
                too much and there was almost too much food to eat! They were very generous at Tunnels and the food was AMAZING! Such
                lovely fresh food to everyones taste.

                This wedding venue totally matched our vibe and was all we had dreamed for our special day. We were lucky with the weather
                - not too hot but a lovely breeze and plenty of sunshine. It wouldn’t have matter as the venue is stunning enough without it.
                Would not have changed a thing about our day, just wish we could do it again! We had quite the dream team on the day
                choosing local people from our fab photographer to the what must be ‘resident’ DJ Paul - who knew the venue well and made
                it just as special.

                A huge thank you - we’ll definitely be back to visit!"

                Jamie and I fell in love at the seaside so to get married by the sea was high on our wish list. When we found your venue we
                were blown away, we knew we’d found somewhere special.

                The accommodation is stunning with every detail thought of. Plus a fantastic base to start and continue the celebrations.
                Our guests absolutely loved the Paella the night before.

                The staff were so welcoming and accommodating with such attention to detail. We never felt like one of the many weddings

                view and the sounds of waves crashing during the ceremony would have been more than enough but the fact we could
                actually go down to the beach and go in the sea after made our day more special!

                All our guest absolutely loved the food - we had so much choice and there was so much that everyone had seconds and some
                had thirds. The staff were all amazing and couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating.

                Honestly couldn't have asked for anything else on our special day, we will be going back when we get the chance! Such a special
                place! Thank you we will most definitely be back!!..."

                "3 months on and we are still in awe of our own wedding day. I would like to thank all of the staff at Tunnels for all of their
                help, leading up to the day and on the day itself. They are all so lovely and honestly make you feel like friends.

                Our guests still can't believe how perfect the day was. We were lucky enough to have great weather but this venue doesn't
                need it. Even on a rainy day the view from upstairs is beautiful. So much so that we booked the venue when we viewed
                it on a stormy day.

                I was a little worried about not being able to sample the food before hand, but honestly the food is out of this world, everyone
                is still talking about it! The venue and the day went above and beyond our expectations!

                The accommodation is absolutely amazing, perfect for all of the guests to stay the night before and have a meal. We chose
                Paella and also booked a Spanish guitarist. It felt like we were transported to a different country.

                I would highly reccommend this venue to everyone, they really know what they are doing. We loved every second. We will
                definitely be coming back for an anniversary in the future..."

                "It was certainly worth the wait! We were originally booked in for August 2020 and from the second we first looked around the
                venue with Jamie (back in August 2018!), through Covid postponements and finally the actual day, there is nothing we can fault
                about Tunnels! They were so easily contactable and nothing was too much trouble. We had booked three houses for our wedding
                - The Bath House, The Courtyard and The Woodlands - and are so glad that we did. It really made our entire wedding feel like
                a holiday as well. The houses are all beautifully decorated and equipped with fantastic communal spaces.

                The actual day was beyond perfect (along with the weather!). Our co-ordinator Naomi was phenomenal at ensuring the day
                ran without a hitch. I was slightly overambitious with my musical acts (acoustic singer, jazz trio, band AND DJ) but they were
                table to seamlessly solve what could have been a set up disaster by suggesting the band played downstairs with us dancing
                away on the outside terrace before moving upstairs for the DJ and the ‘millennial’ party. It worked like it had been planned
                down to the T all along so a huge thank you for orchestrating (and the catering team for moving where our evening food was
                fset up). Which brings me on to the food - it really was the best wedding food I’ve ever had and I’m only sad that I physically
                had no room for seconds. Our guests with dietary requirements also commented on how impressed they were at the clear
                labelling of all of the food, making them feel extremely comfortable and confident that they were catered for. We opted for
                the 'Giant Nachos' in the evening which went down a storm. We were quite specific with what drinks and wine we wanted
                (Chablis and Provence Rose) and Tunnels created a bespoke package for us with the best pricing, rather than trying to fit
                us into a specified package and then charging lots for changes.

                We had so many comments about what an incredible venue it was and everyone was blown away by the setting. I wish we could do
                it all again but thank you so much to everyone at Tunnels Beaches for making it so incredible."

                "After thinking we wanted to get married abroad but deciding we wanted all our loved ones to be able to make it, Tunnels Beaches
                was the answer... Amazing views, amazing venue, amazing accommodation and the opportunity to make it a weekend celebration,
                amazing food (people are still talking to us about the food weeks later. It was SO good!)

                The staff were all amazing and helped the day go to plan so well. We had a bit of rain but still managed to have our ceremony
                outside and it was just beautiful.

                After a Covid postponement and a new baby thrown in to the mix, wedding planning took a bit of a twisted turn for us, but we
                had the magical day and weekend we dreamed of when we first viewed Tunnels, with all our loved ones around us.

                Everything was perfect. Thank you so much."

                Even though we had a small wedding, we still felt very special and all of our guests commented on how lovely your staff
                members were. Especially Simon who was so reassuring and pleasant throughout our day.

                The private beach is perfect for pictures, even a little dip in the summer heat which was one of the highlights for us as
                all the men ran into the ocean for fun!

"We wanted to say a huge thank you for everything!! You were so accommodating when we had to postpone our wedding
                twice because of covid and when our day finally came, the team made everything absolutely perfect.

                Everything was so well organised and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The food was delicious and our guests told us
                so as well. Jacs was so lovely and provided helpful suggestions throughout, all of which worked out so well.

                Our guests all got back to their hotels safely thanks to the amazing driver.

                Thanks for making our wedding day everything we ever wanted. We will be back to visit Tunnels for many years to come..."

"Just wow!! I don’t think we will ever get over this day. There's just something about Tunnels that made our day so magical.
                Being in such a beautiful location with all of our friends and family was a dream come true.

                After visiting the Tunnels as a little girl, peering at a wedding through the then bamboo fence, I knew it was the place I wanted
                to get married. As soon as we were engaged, I remembered my visit to Tunnels from all those years ago. I remember one of
                the first conversations we had after the engagement was me saying ‘I know exactly where we are getting married’. My now
                husband was slightly on the fence because all he had seen is photos (as if that wasn’t enough) but once we had come to Tunnels
                and met with Jamie he was just as in love with the venue as I was.

                I can't describe the feeling I had when walking down the tunnels in my wedding dress with my mum and bridesmaids behind me,
                it was something I will never ever forget.

                The team at Tunnels, the food and of course the venue itself were absolutely incredible. We owe so much to the Tunnels team
                for allowing our special day to run so smoothly. We are so grateful for everything they did for us, they were brilliant from start
                to finish.

                I cannot wait to come back to the Tunnels for years to come..."

"From the moment we stepped through the door on our very first viewing, to visiting the venue two days after our wedding,
                the staff at the Tunnels were incredible. Organising a wedding from Australia was a daunting task, but Jamie and the team
                made it a relaxing experience.

                Our day went better than we could have ever wished for and it truly was the best day of our lives, the venue is an absolute
                dream. The food was exceptional, the add on's made planning a breeze and the recommended vendors worked out so well.

                "We were lucky enough to get 4 days of sunshine, so our wedding lasted the full 4 days, with evening meals in The Courtyard,
                a lazy beach day and a seal bobbing it's head up in the lagoon to say hello.

                No other venue can compare once you walk through the tunnels."

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

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

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

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

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

                in The Courtyard and The Bath House for the wedding weekend and we couldn’t fault that either. Amazing houses, perfect for

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"From stumbling across the venue in 2018, we just knew this would be the perfect place to a) get engaged and b) hold our dream
                wedding at and we were not disappointed.

                We were due to be married in 2020 but had to postpone on two occasions. Throughout all of the pandemic troubles, the Tunnels
                team were very supportive, flexible and made us feel very relaxed.

                We had both the Bath House and The Courtyard and both houses provided such an incredible space for our guests which really
                intertwined both sides of the families to enjoy the whole weekend.

                On our wedding day, the staff were absolutely amazing. The entire day ran so smoothly, everything was perfect! The venue is
                absolutely breath-taking. The food was incredible and Tunnels catered perfectly for such a wide range of dietary requirements.
                The guests absolutely loved it. We wish we could do it all over again and will never forget the special memories we made.

                Everything was all that we dreamt of and more. We cannot thank you all enough for all the support and help in making our day
                so unforgettable."

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

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

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

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

"What can we say, our wedding at Tunnels Beaches was incredible (and long awaited)! We went to visit back in 2019 for our
                2020 wedding (although I don’t think we’d even need to visit to know the stunning location is where we wanted to get married!)

                Everyone we spoke to was friendly, enthusiastic and really helpful. We had to postpone twice due to Covid and despite the
                stress involved the team made it as easy as possible and we can’t thank them enough for the support. It was also great to have
                guidance on choosing our suppliers, everyone we booked came recommended including Mark - Evolve Photography, Natasha -
                Pumpkin & Pye Flowers, Tristan Adams Videography, Ellie - The Up Do Girl (hair), Paul - The Wedding Spinner (DJ) and Nicola
                Redman (makeup). Having trusted people to book made the process so much easier and we couldn’t have been happier with
                everyone we booked.

                Everyone who came to our wedding (which finally happened in 2022) commented on the stunning location and incredible food!
                The canapés, BBQ and evening food was all delicious. Definitely the best wedding food we’ve ever had (and so many others said
                the same too!) We also had an evening meal of paella in The Woodlands accommodation the night before our wedding, again
                couldn’t fault it! We had the most amazing day from start to finish and wish we could do it again."

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

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

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

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

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

 "We got married at Tunnels Beaches in April 2022 and everything was just perfect. We had the most incredible wedding
                and reception at this stunning venue surrounded by our friends and family. We made full use of the stunning accommodation
                making a beautiful short break around the wedding day itself for our friends and family. This was so special to us all after
                various Covid lockdowns prevented us from seeing each other as we’re spread out around the country.

                Our guests raved about the food and honestly, we’re still thinking about that Gourmet BBQ a while on! The staff were amazing
                and went above and beyond in all stages of the planning and the event itself. You couldn’t ask for a better team of people in
                a more stunning venue for your big day. We can’t recommend it enough; it all still feels like a dream.

                We can’t thank the wonderful people at Tunnels Beaches enough. We’ll treasure the memories we made here for the rest of
                our lives."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                Thanks for such a memorable day!"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                We had the most incredible day... Everyone loved it and haven't stopped talking about it since! We would highly recommend

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                (and re-organising) a wedding during a pandemic with a newborn as relaxed and stress-free as it could be.

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

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

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

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

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

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

                We will definitely be back to visit Tunnels Beaches for anniversaries and holidays to reminisce about the best day."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                From the day we arrived - staying at The Woodlands to checking out was a success... All our guests have said how fantastic the
                wedding was. The food was phenomenal! Big thank you, we wouldn’t change a single thing."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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