    Fantastic venue in incredible setting

    A really brilliant venue - incredible views along the bay and towards the town. Great outdoor area to have drinks and canapés. Very relaxed but still felt special. Hire includes the services of an extremely helpful technician who made sure the various bits of live music we had were as good as possible. The staff were the best thing about the venue - everyone was so helpful from booking right through to the day after the wedding - very accommodating to changes of plan and going out of their way to make everything as stress free as possible for us on the day. Highly recommend to anyone!

    Best day EVER

    Such a lush venue, beautiful sunset!!! The perfect romantic space to celebrate tying the knot. Stunning views out onto the sea, not too big and not too small!!! We loved the fairy lights, and the DJ was fantastic! He played our favourite song at our request. Ed Sheeran was played all night long! The Marine team were so great at helping make sure we had the most amazing day! So accommodating and were happy to celebrate alongside us whilst still being wonderfully professional.

    A day to be remembered!

    Our Great Nephew had his wedding ceremony here. We had a 3 course meal and evening buffet which was excellent from their catering partner. The sea views were perfect for photographs, the bar was good, and it also had a big outside area for sitting. The children played on the beach. The whole day was more than you could have wished for.
