What's new at Rosebank House
During winter and these weeks of lockdown we have kept busy working hard to ensure your stay will be as good and safe as always.
Numerous projects have seen the light of day during these months including a newly refurbished room (The Mountain Room), a poly tunnel, green house and vegetable plot will now enable us to produce our own vegetables to cook even more delicious food for all of you. The chicken team has also expanded to 12 girls who will be busy laying fresh eggs daily for your breakfast.
Our commitment to lowering our carbon foot print and plastic usage continues with new initiatives
Top of the crops
The first few weeks of 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 Mountain Room
Part of winter was spent this year refurbishing one of our rooms.
The Mountain room has now been completely refurbished and freshened up. Is has a brand new king sized bed and a new colour scheme which brings more light and we hope more comfort, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed working on it.
The Hen Hoose
Our team of girls has grown to 12 now, 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 and reduce as much as possible the impact we have on the environment. 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 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.
