Key Dates for 2020 - Late Notice Wedding

Cumbria Registration Services are now taking NEW bookings for couples wanting to get married in 2020.


This is fantastic news for those couples who have either been waiting to book with us, or have had their original plans elsewhere affected dring the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are specialising in luxury ceremonies to up the offer for those wanting a barn cermeony. 
We can now offer armchair ceremonies inside the barn for weddings of up to 16 people.


These include chairs that are set at a safe 2m distance in a Covid-Cafe environment.

Take a look at our latest blog to see the measures we have put in place to ensure you and your guests feel safe and secure.

At present we can only offer the ceremony – No drinks or canapes, but are happy to change this in line with the ever changing Government guidelines as they evolve.

Please note that our Covid capacities are now updated to 16 guests in the house and 30 in the barn.

Cote How is Beautiful all Year Round

Low Season Winter Weddings will have more opportunity for availability as peak season dates (particularly school holidays) get booked very quickly, but sometimes low season in the Lakes is a precious time to visit. There are less visitors on the roads, more accommodation available and wedding suppliers are generally in less demand.
We also have real cosy log fires in winter and Cote How is an amazing place to be in Winter – Especially when it snows.
Our policy is not to charge a premium for peak season and likewise we do not offer a discount for low season. 

We also could offer more accommodation in quieter times so if you are interested in accommodation with your weddings we may be able to offer this mid week too ( currently only available at weekends May-October)
