What's new at Rosebank House
Another busy winter at Rosebank this year, whilst we have continued caring for our chicks and let the poly tunnel and vegetables plot rest to be ready for a new season, the newly refurbished Garden room is finished and ready to welcome guests once again. Our commitment to lowering our carbon foot print and plastic usage continues with new initiatives like our fully recyclable and carbon neutral coffee pods available in selected rooms.
Top of the crops
The first few weeks of last year lockdown were spent building a new new poly tunnel and a vegetable plot where we hope lots of fresh vegetables will grow (it is a first for us so there is no guarantee...) to use for our dinner menus and again reduce our carbon footprint. We are currently experimenting with a lot of different seedlings and we have had so far quite a good rate of germination so watch this space.
The all New Garden Room
This winter project has seen the Garden Room being completely refurbished, we ar every proud of the completed works and cannot wait to hear your feedback
The Hen Hoose
Our team of girls has braved another harsh winter and they are all happily roaming around the garden as we write, this will ensure that during your visit you will be able to have freshly laid eggs on a daily basis, please feel free to walk to the top of the garden to visit them, they are extremely curious and funny to watch run around.
Rosebank through time
Rosebank was built in 1874 and served as a boarding house, hotel or bed and breakfast through the years, we have researched the history of the people and building and came across some very beautiful images of the house and the village as it was in the past, enjoy.
Doing our part for the environment
We are trying very hard to reduce our impact on the environment here at Rosebank. During the last 3 years we have worked to try our best to implement new ideas. Few of the examples include: all our hospitality trays are now plastic free and coffees and teas are now in glass jars. All our refuse bags are biodegradable and refuse is separated and recycled wherever possible. Our electricity is sourced from renewable sources and and most of the organic waste is recycled into compost which in turns feeds our vegetable garden. We also collect rainwater which we use to grow our flowers and vegetables.Our new coffee pods are fully recyclable and carbon neutral.
Our products don't include any items using palm oil and most of our ingredients are sourced from local suppliers. We are always keen to implement new initiatives and all ideas are welcome.
