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.

There are many more tearooms than lakes and valleys in Cumbria, they come in various guises and degree of pretention, Cote How is a little precious but charming Sandwiches are excellent, if a little"doorsteppy", organic bread in abundance, cakes great. A great place to have a snack on the way to walk Rydal and Grassmere.,

Having walked from Ambleside, on a loop round both Rydal Water and Grasmere, we were very happy to stumble across the Cote How tea room on our route back! Having been lured in we shared an organic cider and chose an organic flapjack coated in Montezumas chocolate (very chunky and very tasty!) and a orange/chocolate cake (or Jaffa cake, the... More

We heard about this fantastic place from some friends so paid a visit this weekend. Firstly it is all Organic thus the name The Organic tea room- this means it is not your usual cheap PG tips brew. It was amusing hearing people sat at a table next to ours trying to order a diet coke (not organic) . I... More

What a great discovery, this organic guest house and tea room right on the edge of Rydal Water. Superb homemade scones with jam and cream - nice to see everything organic - and stuff growing in the garden to eat as well. A view of two red deer calves grazing in the paddock in middle of the day was magical.... More

My husband and I called in yesterday after a long walk in the rain, I agree it is a beautiful place, but we were the only people in the tearoom and the hostess just went about her business, chatting to her staff and totally ignoring us. When we asked how much further to Ambleside, she replied, 1 mile, no advice... More
