    Simply perfect!

    We knew from the moment we drove through the gate into the grounds of Cote How that this was a very special venue for our wedding. Caroline and Steve were so friendly, professional and helpful throughout the booking process and helped to make our big day simply perfect. Thank you so much, Caroline and Steve.

    I can't recommend Cote How enough! We fell in love with the venue while out walking, and got in touch soon after to go and view it.

    Caroline the owner was fantastic, from our first visit listened to what we had in mind, and tailored the planning of the day to suit us and the number of guests we had.

    On the day Caroline and her team were amazing! I could not have asked for better care and organisation. Caroline's attention to every detail just made everything come together and run smoothly to make our day perfect.
    Cote How is a beautiful venue set in stunning scenery, and staying in the house for the two nights was really special, and again Caroline and team couldn't have done more to make us comfortable and at home.
    The meal we chose, catered by Karen was also 5* everyone commented on the lovely food, and our hot baguette supper also went down a treat with guests!

    If I could give Cote How 10 stars for everything I would! We had the most amazing day, full of wonderful memories. I couldn't think of anywhere more perfect for our day.

    Cote How's reply:

    Katharine and Shaun,

    It was a great pleasure to host your beautiful wedding here. I am fortunate to have such a varied and interesting job anyway but it is made all the more fabulous and much easier and so satisfying by wonderful couples like yourselves!

    On behalf of all the staff here at Cote How - thank you for making our day too!

    Caroline
