If you are looking for a spectacular venue to impress your guests on your big day, you have found the right place. Located between the majestic National Trust headland and the deep blue sea, the Woolacombe Bay Hotel is one of the few wedding venues in the UK where you can exchange your vows with stunning views of the Atlantic in the background. The hotel is a wedding paradise, just perfect to collect the most amazing photographs and memories of the best day of your life. Every wedding is different and we have a dedicated wedding planner to help deliver the wedding you dream of. Whether you are planning a small intimate gathering or a large, sparkling event, we can cater for up to 150 guests. We have a list of recommended suppliers for everything from florists through to photographers, and will help guide you to ensure that every minute detail is taken care of, allowing you to concentrate on looking your best on the day! We have three rooms licensed for civil ceremonies in North Devon – Lundy View, Doyle’s and the magnificent Lancaster Suite. The best way to find out which is the right one for you is to come to the hotel – as soon as you see them, you will know which is right for you. If you want to be married in church, you are welcome to come here for your wedding breakfast and reception, or if you want the whole ceremony to be here, we will be delighted either way. With regard to your wedding breakfast we have various options depending on your budget, and an extensive wine list so you can choose what is right for you. Our chefs use only the finest local, seasonal produce, and will be more than happy to meet with you to discuss your requirements. We will ensure that your guests are accommodated in total comfort, and that your special day is a seamless celebration of the start of your married lives together.

The perfect day in the perfect location
I simply cannot recommend this venue enough!! The staff were incredible & we received numerous compliments from guests about them & the food, which was delicious! The Lancaster suite where we got married is just such a stunning location & being able to have photos on the lawn & down on the beach is beyond priceless!! The wedding planners (Heidi & Al) could not do enough for us & the morning if they were both on hand to check all was going smoothly. They were kind, professional & never said no to any request (including having our 2 dogs as ring bearers) if anyone is considering getting married here, do not hesitate, u will have the most incredible day!
