Located near the popular holiday resort of Westward Ho! This enchanting Kave has been purposefully crafted to host weddings above Mermaid's Pool, in the heart of North Devon Coast's 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. Ocean Kave epitomises magical romantic coastal weddings, commanding impressive panoramic vistas over the Atlantic Ocean, and all the way to Lundy Island on a clear day.

For those couples who dream of a private wedding with a truly coastal feel, Ocean Kave is ideal. Ceremonies can take place in a choice of 2 locations, Ocean Kave ceremony room or the outdoor gazebo. Their Sunset Rooms, boasting panoramic views of the ocean are absolutely perfect for wedding receptions. Versatile for both summer and winter weddings; it takes full advantage of the glorious sunsets in the summertime, and can be made wonderfully atmospheric during the chilly season with the waves crashing against the rocks.


Originally part of the old quarry, Ocean Kave is a purpose build exclusive wedding venue, it was excavated by local masons to create the wonderfully unique, isolated facility that it is today. The first marriage took place in June 2013, and it has since enjoyed tremendous success as a wedding venue.

  • Jill and John

    We just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did to make our Wedding Day so special, from the first meeting to the Wedding weekend. Cannot believe that is now over, but what lovely memories to have.

    We and all our guests felt that the whole Kave experience was just magical and the Sunset Room was a perfect venue for our reception. Everyone of the team we have met are amazing and it feels like we have known them for years!

    I’m sure that we will be seeing you all again soon.

    I wanted to thank you again for making our wedding so special, we had the most amazing day and have made so many beautiful and funny memories. So many of our guest are saying how amazing the day, staff and accommodation were. We will be forever grateful.

  • Laura and Matt

    Thank you all again for giving us the best day ever and making everything so perfect for us! You were all so lovely and couldn't do enough for us! We also noticed all the little touches that you included without us knowing! Thank you for that, the pictures are going to look stunning!

    Our cottage was beautiful, we had a lovely stay and it was so peaceful! We are hoping to come and stay again for our one year anniversary so we will be in touch!

  • Mr and Mrs Young

    Thank you for making our wedding day so magical, everything went so smoothly, the food was out of this world! You were amazing from start to finish, With us and with the children. Thank you for making our dream day possible, we are eternally grateful and will definitely be back for our anniversary if not sooner!

  • Charlie and Alex

    We had the best time, couldn’t think of a better place in the world to get married. We were very fortunate with the weather and had a huge amount of compliments for finding the venue. Thank you so much for a fantastic weekend. We look forward to returning next year.

  • Father of Bride

    The wedding day was a total triumph and all the feedback from everybody has been universally very positive. The location was stunning, the food superb and the staff performed magnificently. Throughout all the preparations, we all had an image of how we hoped the day would go. However, the whole day surpassed all our expectations and was an absolute triumph.

    You and your team are consummate professionals and that was reflected throughout, both in the planning of the wedding and then in it's execution. The only genuine unknown in the planning was the weather and you even managed to arrange that, the weather perfect and the sunset spectacular!

    Would we recommend the location and venue to others, absolutely we would and I wouldn't be surprised if you pick up further business (if not directly from the wedding party , then from others who have viewed the wedding pictures and the favourable comments on social networks).

    Well done and once again, thank you!
