Winners Already

As you can imagine both Steve and I are absolutely thrilled and extremely proud to have been shortlisted, which is a massive achievement for our small family business. It is already a magnificent morale boost to have made it to the final four wedding venues in Cumbria, which has some of the most prestigious and beautiful wedding venues in the UK.

What this award means to us

Of course, we’d love to win the award, which would be the ultimate thank you to all involved, but it would also give us much valued independent recognition of our hard work in developing the Cote How brand. We also believe that this award would provide inspiration for other small and independent family businesses to do the same.
