Right in the Heart of the Lake District National Park


It is no surprise that the Lake District is the UK’s number ONE romantic destination wedding location. The Lakes, with its unspoilt natural landscapes, is an outdoor playground for so many, whether for a few days away or a family holiday. So whether you are into hiking, biking, paddling, or touring, this is the place to be.

With nearly 20 million visitors every year, it is also one of the most sought-after destination wedding locations in the UK and hosts thousands of gorgeous weddings.
Recent trends towards UK destination weddings, adventure weddings, and elopements have seen a sudden rise in this outdoor wedding style. Cote How is perfect if you are an avid outdoor enthusiast, with its doorstep access directly to some of the most popular walks in the UK.
Nestled high on a hill in the foothills of Loughrigg, Cote How commands a proud position at the bottom of the valley with the power of the River Rothay flowing towards it. Our beautiful location offers stunning views north over Rydal Water and beyond to Silver How and the Langdales in the distance.

Direct Lake Shore Access to Rydal Water

Of course, a Lake District wedding would not be complete without a lake! We are proud to have direct access to Rydal Water from our garden. Cote How occupies the land between our grounds and the lake, including the old boathouse. Cote How also owns the boating rights to the lake, which we keep natural and unspoilt for future generations to enjoy!
