A Unique Wedding Venue
A warm and welcoming home for generations, Cote How combines its unique Lakeland farming heritage with a style and grace befitting this very unique and special venue. Blue-grey slate terraces open onto croquet lawned private gardens, fronting this fine Lakeland house. Traditional barn buildings are built into the bedrock, literally making the building a part of the mountains which surround it. This idyllic location offers a stunning backdrop for your cherished photographs and is one of only a handful of Lakeland venues with direct access to the lakeside, riverside and woodland in this world class location!
Your own personal wedding planner
Owner and wedding coordinator Caroline will guide you through the planning process with as much or as little help as you may require. Caroline has had a varied background; training in Fashion Design and Textiles she went on to a DMS in Business Management and Management Services with a career in Industrial Engineering at Courtaulds Textiles before opening her own bridal boutique in Nottingham. Here she sold bridal wear and accessories alongside designing and making handmade silk gowns and soon gained a reputation for the highest quality bespoke wedding dresses, showcasing at the National Wedding Shows at the NEC in Birmingham where brides came from all over the country to meet Caroline and access her exclusive design skills. Caroline relocated to Cote How in 2006, and developed the existing bed and breakfast business to a world renowned Organic Guest House with Soil Association license and featured in publications such as the Lonely Plant and Green traveller to name a few. She was a founder member of Cumbria Green Business Forum and was often seen acting as ambassador for and presenting to other businesses throughout Cumbria. In 2013 Caroline realised her ultimate dream which saw Cote How evolve into the exclusive wedding venue it is today. Caroline's flair for design and attention to detail saw Cote How grow and is now one of the Lake Districts most exclusive small wedding venues. Cote How occupies a natural gem of a location right in the heart of the English Lake District and oozes Lakeland charm.
