Dating back to the early 17th century, Ridgmont House was built by the Pilkington family, landowners from Rivington. Formerly called 'The White House', Joseph Ridgway bought and extended the house to its current size in 1801, when he also had constructed an 'Ice House'. This is quite unique and one of the only two that can be found in Lancashire.

We celebrated our wedding here on 27th June 2019. From the planning stage to the actual wedding day the staff were amazing and accommodated our wishes in every detail. Nothing was too much trouble for Martin the front of house manager. Also the canapes, served on the lawn, were imaginative and totally delicious. The wedding breakfast was tailored exactly to our needs by Chris the head chef. The food was second to none. The entire venue and setting is beautiful. It's a hidden gem situated completely out of sight off Chorley Old Road and lent itself perfectly to our vintage theme. You have exclusive use of the venue and it is suitable for all types of occasions in addition to weddings.Sent on 31/07/2019
