Indulge in the simple elegance of our indoor ceremonies 

Georgian elegance fit for a King - or Queen. Both our Fairfield and Wordsworth ceremony rooms are lavishly styled with oversized gilt mirrors and crystal and gold chandeliers. Add to this a plethora of candles and you have a blank canvas in which to envisage your dream wedding. Dim the chandeliers for a romantic candlelit ceremony. Winter Weddings have never felt so cosy.

Stylish small and intimate Lake District weddings

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.

Every wedding enjoys full exclusivity, regardless of size, giving couples discretion and privacy throughout their stay. Living onsite ensures that every detail is carried out to perfection.

Cote How is a very versatile wedding ready venue, with three indoor and two outdoor licensed spaces. The house ceremony rooms are very spacious, light and airy, elegantly styled with neutral colours, crystal chandeliers and oversized gilt mirrors. For those who prefer a more rustic outdoor style, then our traditional Lakeland slate barn, with its stunning oak beamed ceiling, is the perfect place to say “I do”.
