Your dream wedding in the heart of the Lake District

Lake district Weekend Weddings

Love the Lakes?
If you, like most of our wedding couples, frequent the Lakes on a regular basis, you will no doubt be very versed with your favourite Lake District beauty spots, those special places that mean so much to both of you, and the times of year you love to come and visit.
Why not think about combining your love of the Lakes with your weekend Lake District visit, and get married as part of your weekend away?

Check in and Chill out

This is our ultimate wedding and as such includes the whole weekend with exclusive use of Cote How and it’s stunning grounds for the weekend. 
Your stay includes the very grand Wedding Suite with roll top bath and two other luxurious super king sized bedrooms for your nearest and dearest. 
We understand travelling here to get married comes with it’s challenges, but once here you can unpack and unwind with us on hand to help with your final preparations, you can settle in and relax…

A weekend of treats...

The fun begins the minute you arrive.  It is like Christmas for us, and we can’t wait to see all your lovely personal touches so carefully collected, or hand crafted; the things that make your wedding so personal. From name cards and table plans, to favours and of course the dress – Did I mention I love wedding dresses????

Indulge Yourself

Often referred to as “home from home” and as far from corporate as is possible to be, Cote How oozes love, warmth and a rare sense of calm. It is the perfect place to enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere and this is felt in abundance the longer you stay. Man happy couples still asking to return and relive their weddings year on year – We only wish we could accommodate them!
