Wedding Accommodation


The bedrooms at Cote How are reserved for the immediate bridal party only. The Bridal Suite is a luxurious suite with wonderful views up the Rydal Valley. Two other rooms can each sleep up to 4 guests making a total of 10 guests in total.
Additional wedding guests are advised to book their accommodation directly with other local hotels, self catering, bed and breakfast or guest houses as soon as possible. See our preferred accommodation providers in our geust informatin pack.

Check in times vary depending on the package chosen by the Bride and Groom.
Weekend weddings Bridal Party check in from 16:00 on Friday with departures by 10:00am on Sunday.
Weekday weddings Bridal Party check in from 12:00 and check out the following day at 10:00. 


The Rydal Suite is the room of choice for our bridal and honeymooning couples. The superking sized bed is dressed in sumptuous gold and ruby brocade, and the original cast iron bath has been lovingly restored and placed with a view across the Rydal Valley from the 3 metre wide window. Candlelit bathing with the most romantic of Lakeland views, or snuggling into the window seat and watching the deer play on the garden terrace make this a truly magical experience. Organic fairtrade teas, coffees, “Duchy Originals” shortbread biscuits, and ‘Pure Lakes’ handmade natural toiletries add a touch of indulgence.

The amazing views look towards the Fairfield Horseshoe and in the other direction, Wansfell Pike. The large ensuite bathroom has a double ended roll topped bath with separate shower and heated towel rail. 


The third of our bedrooms has its own private and recently refurbished bathroom directly adjacent to the bedroom door. Its large window overlooks the Fairfield Horseshoe and across the front terrace of the house. There is a hand sink in the bedroom for your convenience. The bathroom is immediately adjacent and features a P-shaped bath with a power shower over the bath.

Additional Guest Accommodation

The following are not comprehensive or exclusive, but are suggestions. We recommend that you research these and make your own informed decision. It may be necessary for the wedding couple to arrange transport, if accommodation is in Ambleside as we have no parling facilities here on-site to keep the gardens and surrounding areas as car free as possible for photographs.

For those staying in Rydal, we are in walking distance.
For minibus hire, Mountain Goat can be hired or John's taxi has a minibus for up to 8 people.
