The facilities at Ocean Kave have been created to cater for every couple, making each wedding special, exclusive and unique.

Ocean Kave

The purpose-built Kave was excavated by local masons to create an intimate, cosy wedding venue all year round. What location could be more magical than this cliffside refuge, gazing out romantically onto the blissful ocean beyond? Both civil ceremonies and intimate wedding breakfasts can be held in the mystical inner sanctum of Ocean Kave.

Civil ceremony capacity - 120 guests
Wedding breakfast capacity - 22 guests

The Sunset Rooms

Commanding panoramic views of the coastline, this reception suite is equipped with a fully licensed bar, a dancefloor with modern disco lighting and a PA system.

Wedding breakfast capacity - 120 guests
Evening reception capacity - 150 guests

The Rustic Barn

After taking your vows, this rustic barn is the perfect location for wedding breakfasts for small, intimate weddings. Adorned with fairy lights and rustic styling, this brand new venue can also be hired for pre and post-wedding celebrations for groups who are staying in the on-site accommodation.

Wedding breakfast capacity - 32 guests
Evening reception capacity - 32 guests

There is a generous amount of outdoor space that can be used creatively. Make the most of a clifftop gazebo and add your own props, games and decorations. You are even welcome to bring in an ice cream truck or sweet cart.


The staff at Ocean Kave appreciate the importance of a flawless and delicious wedding breakfast. The head chef and his team take meticulous care in your meal, from coming up with a menu to serving you at the table.

You will have a chance to discuss your wedding menu to create something wonderful and bespoke, making the most of the excellent quality local produce available, from Exmoor to the Atlantic. Let the team know of any special requirements, allergies and favourite foods to fine tune a perfect menu. If you aren't interested in a sit-down meal, you could have an evening buffet instead, or even a barbecue overlooking the cliffs.


Within the grounds of the venue are fourteen luxury holiday cottages sleeping two to eight people. With excellent facilities onsite, it makes Ocean Kave a wonderful spot for a weekend-long destination wedding!

Each cottage has its own individual charm and will suit different needs, including family cottages, accessible cottages and dog-friendly cottages. On top of this, some have hot tubs, other spa baths, and some even have a wood-burning stove for that extra spark of romance.

A night or two's stay in the Bridal Suite is included in most packages, or you can choose to upgrade to a different apartment to better suit your needs. And, as nearby Westward Ho! is such a beautiful and sought after beach, there is further accommodation there for other guests if needed.

    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!

    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!
