Hello and Welcome
Let us tell you why Spring Cottage is so special…
As a family, we have grown up in Rivington Village, attending the local primary school, celebrating marriages and christenings in the local Parish Church and being part of, what can only be described as one of the closest knit communities around.
Rivington is beautiful and is well known to local walkers for its picturesque setting. As a family, we are very protective of Rivington’s environment and wish to do our upmost to preserve the natural element in which we live. Not only is there history shining through, there is also lots of nature to admire including wildlife. Close by to Spring Cottage there is a small wooded area where we often see Deer – this is now known by the family as Deer HQ.
When it was confirmed that Spring Cottage would be ours, we decided to tell family and close friends our plans. Grandma Linda was overjoyed when she found out, and told us of times she would visit her old friends Ellen Hilton and Bambi, who lived there in the 1970’s. Grandma reflected on times they would all sit on the balcony, looking over the large lawn whilst listening to the running stream and eating afternoon tea. Idyllic!
We also have our own fond memories of Spring Cottage as Rosie attended the nursery based here when she was a little girl. She can recall playing outside in the sun and enjoying beans on toast for lunch.
When we got the keys to Spring Cottage, we were all so excited. There was lots of work that needed to be done and we were all very conscious that we needed to maintain or carefully restore any historic features.
We are now at the end of our journey to open up part of the cottage to you, the public! We’d absolutely love you to come and visit us. Take a look around our page to see what we offer and click the ‘contact us’ page to get in touch.
All the very best,
Judith, Rosie and Jennie
