About Tunnels Beaches

Tunnels Beaches on North Devon’s rugged North Coast is a spectacular PRIVATE BEACH venue for your wedding and reception.

“Unique” is an over-used adjective when it comes to wedding locations, but there is certainly no other way to describe this one!...

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

Choose to get married within our thatched gazebo overlooking the sea, within our beautiful bespoke building or even within the tunnels themselves! Your guest will love the choice of vantage points from which to enjoy the views - garden, terrace, balcony, roof terrace, bar and function rooms all enjoy amazing outlooks.

Built-in (indoor & outdoor) light, sound and PA systems plus gorgeous interior design mean hardly any decorations are required and a stress-free build up for you!

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

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

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

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

Easy access for all your guests via the paved & very gently sloping tunnels. Wedding venue also has a lift & wheelchair facilities.

    Everything about it was perfect from the moment we

    We searched for a wedding venue for months and months. We could never find anything that had the relaxed, laid back vibe that we wanted, in a beautiful location and with organised staff we felt we could trust with our special day. Then we went to Tunnels! Everything about it was perfect from the moment we first saw it. Being from South Wales, we didn't really have any connection to the location but we were drawn to it's coastal beauty and the incredible setting. We loved that you could stay on site (we stayed in The Courtyard), it really made a weekend of the whole occasion and we got to spend extra special time with our closet friends and family.

    We got married in Nov 2019, even though it was a very wet and windy weekend the dramatic coastline and beautiful venue was still absolutely perfect. It's stunning inside and out, we barely had to decorate, the views speak for themselves. The staff at Tunnels cannot do enough for you, they are so attentive and supportive but also give you space to do your own thing. We viewed so many venues that projected their view of what our wedding should be on us, and we never experienced this with Tunnels, they were so great. They were very helpful on the lead up to the wedding, replying to countless emails due to my bridal nerves, putting my mind at ease and always having the answers. They were helpful when we arrived and on the day of the wedding, always on hand and so welcoming. They even helped us manage our playlists and music.

    The food was EPIC. People still talk to us about how incredible the food was. They even got in a special flavour of ice cream for us.

    The location is down right stunning

    Tunnels Beaches was the first and only place we visited. We booked immediately. There is something truly magnificent about Tunnels and those who have had their wedding there or been to someone’s there will know exactly what we mean! The location is down right stunning - think ultra-cool venue meets ‘Bond Lair’ and you are some way there.

    Despite Yellow weather warnings and torrential rain on the day until 45 mins before the ceremony, Tunnels management and experience meant we got to get married outside (of course everything was prepp’d in case of a last minute change)! Every guest has commented (and some still do) that it was the best wedding ever - we would of course say that - but it was down to the overall professionalism of the entire team at Tunnels - cleaners to chefs and beyond. The food is something they really pride themselves on and they should! Again our guests still mention it...and one mother wishes there were more photos of the food too!

    The venue has so much to offer and you will struggle to find anything more unique - you can see that from the photos - but Tunnels is the entire team! From Jamie and Catherine who helped us pull it all together to Jacs who delivered on the day. The whole day ran like clockwork without us or even the wider bridal party having to worry about a thing! Nothing was ever too much, everything was pre-empted and they would always try and accommodate requests within their bounds.

    The venue, the accommodation, the service - everything is simply outstanding! Our best day ever with the most fantastic memories!

    Outstanding venue and Team!

    "We chose Tunnels Beaches for our wedding in October 2019. It's the first wedding venue we visited and we did not view any others. It's a breathtaking venue. I happen to be a wedding photographer - and over the decades have visited many lovely wedding venues across the UK and abroad.
    I have never been to a wedding venue and felt as special as Tunnels made us both feel. Their attention to detail, knowledge and professionalism is the best I have ever come across.

    Nothing was a problem to any of the amazing people who work there. The entire team at Tunnels Beaches made us feel totally at ease with any requests / questions we had...we always knew we were in safe hands. As for the day itself - it was awesome and exceeded our expectations.

    The food was incredible and guests are still commenting on it was the best and most unique wedding they had been too. We cannot wait to share our wedding photos when we receive them with our amazing venue. Thanks so much - to Jamie, Tanya, Catherine and the entire team for helping us create one of the most memorable days that we will treasure forever! Mr & Mrs Doyle xx
