Springside Cottage

Springside Cottage, Rawtenstall

Grade 2 listed building undergoes refurbishment


Springside Cottage, <

/a>which was formerly a 26 cover intimate restaurant, has recently undergone a very swift refurbishment programme, converting the Grade 2 listed building, back into a 3 bedroom residence.

The cottage closed as an eatery 6 years ago, and had been used as a sales office for the adjacent Housing Scheme that the Company had been developing over the past few years. A Planning Application for an extension to the premises, extending it to a restaurant with 3

times the original covers

was eventually obtained in 2009, but extensive marketing for a suitable ‘end-user’ that not only would be acceptable in this Conservation Area, but also with its close

proximity to the proposed new housing, proved unsuccessful.  

As a result, it was decided that by carrying out a relatively easy internal refurb, mainly involving taking out the former bar and waiting area to create a living area off the kitchen. The kitchen pantry was demolished to create a private backyard, and the premises given a full redecoration with new carpets.

The property has been instantly let to a family, who moved in at the beginning of November. Eventually, it is intended to remove the site cabins at the rear of the property, to create a large private garden, linked through with some ‘French doors’ into the living room to create a superb, cosy home directly on Newchurch Road in Rawtenstall, a 2 minute walk to the main shopping street and all the town facilities.
