RECENT WEDDING TESTIMONIALS

We didn’t know we were looking for Cote How until we found it! We had long talked about eloping one day but didn’t feel the registry office or traditional hotel options were very ‘us’. Then we found Cote How on Instagram. An idyllic, private venue. Surrounded by nature, with the beautiful Ambleside hills and Rydal water on its doorstep. Not to mention a small, incredibly friendly team of experts to help you plan the perfect day. The amount of thought and consideration that Caroline, Rachel and Steve have put into supporting their wedding clients is absolutely incredible.

Abigail and Robert – Mar 2024

Absolutely wonderful from start to finish, the venue is exactly what we were looking for and the hosts were flawless. So friendly and inviting. 
Caroline and Rachel made our day perfect and even managed to find me some wedding flowers with less than 24 hours notice. They are so kind and accommodating, which made our day even more special. 
Steve was our photographer and very professional, giving us some amazing pictures with memories to treasure. 
We wish we could do it all over again. Please book here if you want to experience a stress free wedding with picturesque views and the most beautiful venue. We could not be more delighted. 

Rebecca & Chris – Feb 2024

Caroline, Rachel & the rest of the team at Cote How exceeded our hopes & expectations by miles. 
The venue is absolutely stunning, filled with history & will provide the most beautiful back drop for any occasion. 
The team are so kind, friendly, accommodating and provide so much communication to ensure you are happy with every tiny detail of your special day. 
For anyone looking for a venue that is intimate, stunning and takes as much stress out of the planning process as possible, I cannot recommend Caroline & the team at Cote How enough. 
You made our elopement dreams come true, and for that we will be forever grateful.  

Danielle & Chris – DEC 2023
