The Perfect Wedding Venue
Cote How is a very versatile wedding ready venue, featuring an historic and individually styled country house and a fantastic sixteenth century slate barn.
There are FIVE very differently styled and sized rooms that you can choose form to say I do.
The three indoor house ceremony rooms are very spacious, light and airy, and elegantly styled with neutral colours, crystal chandeliers and over-sized gilt mirrors.
The two outdoor options are the garden gazebo adorned with vintage festoon lighting and a great sofa, fantastic for elopements and intimate weddings with a view of the whole Rydal valley ahead, or our traditional Lakeland slate barn, with its stunning oak beamed ceiling. The house and barn are usually used for all weddings at some time or other, so you can choose a house ceremony initially, then reveal the delightful twinkly barn, adorned with apple blossom and fairy lights later for the wedding breakfast. This way you get to see all that Cote How has to offer at different times of the day and you and your wedding guests get to see and use all the areas of the venue.
Working closely with our clients to offer a unique and flexible experience, no two weddings are ever the same. As 95% of couples travel here to be married, we offer a very relaxed, informal and homely styled environment that puts our clients at ease from their first meeting right through the planning process. With over 30 years wedding industry and hospitality experience, Caroline is perfectly placed to do this, ensuing regular contact which calms nerves and builds excitement for the big day.
