Tunnels Beaches Ilfracombe

Have you been invited to a wedding at the Tunnels Beaches? If so, then you are in for a treat. It is a beautiful venue for a memorable wedding.


Although Tunnels Beaches do offer accommodation, they are limited in what they can offer, so guests can stay at Mullacott Farm, knowing they are only a stone's throw away from their friends and family, in the tranquil, and secluded environment of the Ilfracombe countryside.

The Tunnels Beaches are the nearest beaches situated to Mullacott Farm, just down the hill from us, in Ilfracombe. They are about 1 mile away.


Tunnels Beaches lies within a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and 
is part of a Voluntary Marine Conservation area. They consistently surpass the highest possible standards for EU sea water testing and are currently the proud holders of  the prestigious 'Blue Flag' beach award, and 'Quality Coast Award'.


Tunnels Beaches is licensed to hold civil ceremonies & civil partnerships.

B&B at Mullacott Farm

Swallow Barn is nearly 100 years old. It is set in the heart of the farm, as an annex to the farmhouse.

We have retained many of the original features, including the old exposed beams.

All the bedrooms have a double and a single bed, and are en-suite, with a toilet, basin and shower. They are tastefully decorated, in a simple country cottage theme.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, with stable doors leading out onto the patio, where there is substantial wooden garden furniture, where you can enjoy an evening drink and while away the time.

Upstairs are a further four bedrooms, which have retained the original character of the building, with exposed beams.  Two of these rooms have interconnecting doors if required, with the other two having a double and two single beds each. The upstairs rooms have their own patio to use.

All of the bedrooms are well appointed with colour television, clock radio, a tea and coffee hospitality tray, hairdryer, plenty of storage space, and a comfortable seating area, with chairs and table. There is a fridge with freezer compartment available for all of the guests to use.

Swallow Barn is a No Smoking building.


The farmhouse breakfast is served in the country dining room, downstairs. On the dresser, for you to help yourself, will be a selection of popular breakfast cereals, grapefruit segments, prunes, yoghurts and orange juice. We will serve you with your hot drink selection, which may be tea, coffee, hot chocolate, decaffeinated tea and coffee or herbal teas.

The cooked breakfast can be any combination of the traditional English breakfast. The sausages are made from our own pork and the bacon is cured and sliced on the farm. The eggs come from our own free-range hens or ducks, and can be fried poached or scrambled, the choice is yours. The tomatoes come from our greenhouse, when in season; the jam and marmalade, for your toast is homemade throughout the year. Alternatively, we do offer kippers or porridge, if ordered the night before. A limited early breakfast can be available by arrangement.


We will be happy to cater for special diets, if we have advance notice.



Alternative accommodation is available at Mullacott Farm.
