Been here several times this year, in the middle of a walk and at the end of one, great coffee, fab scones, and if the weather is nice great views, well worth a visits

Popped in here halfway through a walk and had wonderful Darjeeling and Stilton and Walnut scones! Very welcome on an extremely hot day. It's just at the southern end of Rydal water and is well worth plotting in to walking plans.

Wonderfully situated on the side of the classic round Rydal Water walk (about half way if you start from the White Moss Common car park), the tea room has now moved from inside the house to the adjacent "barn". Plenty of room inside but sitting outside is definitely to be preferred with views up Loughrigg Fell - the footbridge over... More

We've walked past this little gem of a place so many times, but have never been in as we're always passing at a time when we're not ready to eat! However, this weekend we went in as a party of 4 and the food was excellent. All the food is home cooked and the cakes and scones are out of... More

We were 6 miles through a walk and came across the tea room. The weather was wonderful so we sat outside and ordered a cheese scone each, a coffee and a hot chocolate with a shot of baileys. The scones were superb, and the hot chocolate the best my wife has ever had (I'm sure the baileys helped!). It's in... More

As a raw vegan, eating out is always somewhat stressful in the UK. Not everywhere does salads, and those that do, offer salads which are predominantly animal based - when you take off the chicken or the cheese, you are sometimes left with a few boring lettuce leaves and a couple of tomatoes! Not so at Cote How Organic. We... More

Fabulous place to stop when doing the Grasmere/Rydal walk, especially before tackling the steep climb of Rydal Mount and onto the Coffin Road. Lovely setting and the bathroom is amazing.

I have visited the tea room twice while walking in the Lakes and it's a wonderful find. In winter it was a great place to warm up and enjoy a cup of decaf tea and scones. In summer, we sat outside and enjoyed the excellent soup and sandwich combo. Highly recommended.
