Your Dream Wedding Journey Starts Here

A Versatile and Flexible Wedding Venue

Big enough to offer choice – Small enough to allow for change

Cote How has no less than FIVE separate licensed areas for civil ceremonies, offering you choice and versatility for every style of wedding. 

For larger gatherings in the house we have the crystal chandeliered Fairfield Room. For smaller gatherings we have the beautifully ornate Wordsworth Room, or the cosy Woodrow Room – ideal for intimate winter ceremonies.

Humanist Ceremonies can enjoy the full beauty of our gardens and surrounding scenery. Hosted on our manicured lawn; a truly magical outdoor wedding experience.

For those wanting a more rustic feel we have our beautiful barn gazebo, adorned with dancing fairy lights and vintage festoons it comes alive at dusk.

The ultimate in rustic splendour – our Tudor Barn,  for larger ceremonies and that outdoor experience. Or best of both worlds, host your ceremony in the Barn Courtyard and your evening reception in the barn.

With Caroline and Steve at the helm managing your wedding day, you can relax knowing that all of the small details are well in hand. We are able to respond to changes very quickly, whether it’s the changing weather, timings or new ideas.
