Wedding Testimonials

 Hi Caroline. Just wanted to say a huge thank you from myself and Shaun. You gave us an absolutely amazing day! And we are so grateful to you, Steve and everyone else who had a part in the day. Apart from letting us have the use of your beautiful home and venue, Your guidance and attention to every detail was unbelievable, I really don't think we would have had the same professional but so personal care anywhere else. I know there were a couple of stressful moments (unexpected people arriving at bad times/ a long hair and make up session..) still not sure why it took so long?!  But you got us through all that and got me organised (which takes some doing) We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day, and stay. Thank you again from us both and all our families.  You really are amazing :) We fell in love with Cote How the first time we walked past and our wedding day there with you all, was everything we hoped for. With love and thanks Katharine, Shaun and the boys x Ps Keith (Shaun's dad said best full English ever!)

What can we say.....the most perfect experience from the moment we arrived until we HAD to go home!! I knew when we visited in December 2015 that Cote How was the place we wanted to get married at. Caroline really is a 'wedding angel' (if there is such a thing). Her attention to detail is incredible and nothing is too much trouble. And all those behind the scenes too...Steve, Karen (OMG the food was incredible) and the girls.....thank you. We will never forget you all...thank you for making our special day even more special.

If you are looking for a fairytale venue look no further! We got married at Cote How on 5 September 2015 and it was absolutely amazing!! The venue is quaint, rustic, charming and has stunning views. We got married outside which was magical, feasted on hog roast which was soooo tasty, before partying the night away in the barn. The day ran so smoothly, Caroline and her team were so professional and relaxed. A number of guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever been to which is testament to Caroline, her team and the beautiful venue. We would highly recommend Cote How if you're getting married in the Lakes. Thanks Caroline and team for helping us create such wonderful memories!! Mr and Mrs Robb.

I've attended this venue many times not only as a performer but also as a guest and this place is amazing. I simply love coming here. The scenes are beautiful, the venue it's self is stunning and full of character and every wedding I've attended here has been able to add its own personal stamp to this already perfect setting. Caroline and her team go above and beyond every time and every couple I speak to her who have got married her refer to them more as friends now than just providers. Karen's food as well is simply beautiful and homely. This is my favourite venue in the lakes and I've performed at many of them. You really should consider this for the perfect Lake District wedding.

Julie and I were married at Rydal Church in June 2015. We chose Cote How for our wedding breakfast and evening celebrations not just for it's proximity to the church but also because it is one of the most beautiful locations in the whole of the Lake District. We can't thank Caroline enough and were incredibly impressed with just how professional and yet personal she was. The process of planning our day was seamless and, seemingly, effortless. Yet we knew how much hard work and care went into making sure we had the day we wanted and dreamed of.

Thank you so much - Cote How is more beautiful, even than the photos on your website. The perfect place for our wedding, made all the more perfect by the efforts of Caroline, Ellie and the other staff on the day.

We have just spent a fantastic weekend at Côte How for my daughters wedding which was held there. What a wonderful venue and Caroline, the owner could not have been more helpful and was such a delightful host. Karens food was superb too! Nothing was too much trouble for Caroline. Côte How is certainly the best wedding venue I have ever been to. Every single guest commented on how great it was and how much they had enjoyed themselves. Well done Caroline and your team!!

My son and daughter-in-law's wedding was held at Cote How Lakeland Venue on 30th August 2014, the new Mr & Mrs Gibbons. The day was absolutely seamless thanks to Caroline and her fantastic team. The venue is beautiful, we had really good weather and made the most of the stunning views for photographs. Our official wedding ceremony held in the beautiful wedding room, followed by a wonderful wedding breakfast and later we partied all evening in the fantastic barn setting - just perfect all day. Our wedding was catered by Green's Grasmere who I cannot give enough praise, the food was fantastic the service second to none. A truly fantastic venue, amazing host, wedding planner, and an absolutely beautiful place to hold your special day - thank you Caroline and team xx
