The ceiling has panels with fibre optic lights giving the effect of twinkling stars. There is a fully integrated sound system with building in microphones for speeches & the building is fully air conditioned and ventilated. The amazing sea views are brought inside by the bi fold glass doors which run along the full front of the building & there is a large deck for your guests to relax on & soak up the breathtaking scenery. Surrounded by beautiful beaches such as Broadsands, Combe Martin, Watermouth Cove & Hele - all within a 2 to 5 minute drive away - many couples take time out for some beach photos.

    Stunning location, perfect day.

    Such a stunning location and backdrop for photos. Our wedding photos looked like they were taken at a far away resort, despite being at the end of September on the brink of a storm.
    The owner was so accommodating and friendly, allowing our dog to attend our entire wedding and stay at the hotel.

    Unfortunately room 43 wasn’t available on the day of our wedding but I would highly recommend securing it for your special day as it makes such a difference getting ready in there as the room is spacious enough for your bridal party and only a short walk to the venue.

    The staff were so friendly and helpful on the day. Helping take the pressure off us by decorating the venue and helping with the logistics of getting vulnerable guests down to the venue. the service was excellent throughout.
    I Would definitely recommend this venue and would love to return next year.

    Rescued Our Covid-19 Wedding!

    The team at Sandy Cove quite literally rescued our wedding weekend. Our day in it's original format got cancelled by our original venue with just weeks to go and the team at Sandy Cove were able to help us with a number of flexible options.

    I have rated them as Excellent for everything bar Responsiveness, where I rated them as Good. I am sure under normal circumstances they would be excellent but with so many cancellations, postponements, last minute bookings and new bookings, it was to be expected.

    The venue is absolutely stunning. Due to the glorious weather on the day, we were lucky enough to use every part of the venue.

    Wishing the team at Sandy Cove lots of luck for the remainder of 2020 and beyond!
