Whatever the occasion, be it your wedding, birthday, anniversary or party, Cote How offers an exclusive venue small enough for two or big enough for 70. Cote How is a family run business with resident-owner Caroline Langham at the helm. With more than 30 years' experience in the wedding and hospitality business, you are assured of the best possible service, with attention to detail and expert planning. Your special occasion is individually designed to suit your own unique style. No two celebrations are ever the same!
Cote How is a romantic, 5 star, grade II listed building and offers an historic 16th century Lakeland venue in a prime central Lake District location. Warmth, charm, character and privacy combine to make it an unparalleled Cumbrian establishment.
The house offers three reception rooms, the bar and main reception area with cosy log fire and sitting area, the music room/lounge area and the Fairfield ceremony room, which is sunny and bright (even on a dull day) and luxuriously adorned with ornate mirrors and crystal chandeliers.
By contrast, overlooking the picturesque Rydal Water and River Rothay, is our beautifully restored 16th century Lakeland barn with it's rustic charm, outdoor seating and stunning mountian views. The barn is one of only two that are licensed for Civil Ceremonies in the Lake District and is host to parties and weddings both indoors and out, eliminating the requirement of a marquee.
Each wedding and special occasion at Cote How is planned meticulously. No celebration will ever be too small to be allocated only a corner of our venue - you can have it all!
A unique traditional Lakeland Venue set in the true heart of the English Lake District - England's largest National Park and now a world heritage site. Cote How steeped in Lakeland tradition and history was built in 1535 on lay lines emerging from Rydal Water and benefits from stunning views and natural beauty from every angle. A photographers paradise!
