Larger Weekend Weddings

Here at Cote How we focus on smaller more intimate weddings and so for us a larger wedding is considered anything from 40-50, which may indeed be small to some!
Our larger weddings are limited to weekend weddings. This does not mean that smaller weddings cannot be offered at weekend, rather that larger weddings are only offered at the weekend!

Barn Weddings

A Destination Weekend Wedding 

Perfect for couples, travelling to the Lake District to get married, allowing time to travel here, arriving Friday afternoon, check in from 4pm, then relax and enjoy your fully exclusive venue hire for the duration of your stay until check out on Sunday Morning.

Wedding-Ready Convenience

Thanks to Caroline’s eye for design and detail, Cote How is already beautifully decorated and Wedding-Ready, so if you are travelling, have limited car space and are looking for the convenience of a ready-decorated venue to provide a relaxed and laid back styled wedding then look no further.

Informal Relaxed Style

Our barn weddings have a rustic charm that fits well with a ‘No fuss nor Formality’ styled wedding. To compliment this, choose a self-served buffet-styled relaxed meal with no seating plan. Choose from our Hog Roast or BBQ Chicken Rotisserie Hot Buffet Options. Benefit from our outdoor seating area on the barn terrace in addition to the indoor barn. The buffet is served from the Garden Gazebo and guests are welcome to choose their buffet then sit where they prefer – Indoors or Out, with the beautiful setting Sun over Rydal Water as your backdrop.

Add Your Own Finishing Touches

to compliment your wedding theme; maybe a Guest Book, Personalised Wedding Favours, or bunting. Working alongside us on the Friday evening (4-6pm) we will help you to set up the barn, allowing you to relax and enjoy the evening ahead of your big day. Maybe a relaxed supper in nearby Ambleside?

A More Formal Wedding
