“Had an Amazing Time in an Amazing Place”
Reviewed February 26, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

20 of us traveled here from all over the south and would like to say what an amazing time we had. It was a friends 40th and we all wanted to celebrate together and a friend found this place on the internet. What you must remember is that this is a very old house and ok could do with a bit more TLC but we all thought it added to the charm.When you get 20 adults (he says loosely) running around a house of this size playing Sardines you know you cant go wrong. We did go through a lot of wood on the open fire but at no point did we think the house was cold maybe that's us. The hot tub is amazing just a shame they dont have two next to each other for that amount of guests. I will point out that the wall next to the hot tub is very slippy so if you do intend on running across it completely wasted at 3 in the morning be careful as i found out the hard way. Brilliant house, brilliant time thank you. Local pub serves really good food at lunch time for a fiver. And look out for the cats we named one Pom Pom as you will find out.

“Amazing 30th birthday”

Having struggled to find anywhere to fit 20+ people in a central location I strumbled across Rose Bank and was glad I did -Margaret allowed my mum and I to have a look round and the house was an amazing array of staircases and quirky rooms (definitely suitable for my friends)
We had a wonderful slightly drunken weekend of enjoying the hot tub, making enough food to feed everyone and dancing with the music loud enough to disturb most locations but as we were in the countryside we didn't both anyone.
The few issues we had with the Fire were wuickly sorted and fun was had by all who came! A fabulous place

“Brilliant birthday celebration weekend”
Reviewed October 20, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

We booked Rose Bank to be able to celebrate our father's 80th birthday as a family of children, grand children and their partners. My father had always dreamed of being able to have all the family together again, like the wonderful family Christmases we used to have when we were young. Rose Bank was ideal, a lovely old rambling Victorian House which obviously has been a very much loved family home. You could just imagine the fun and laughter this old house has had resonating through its numerous rooms and halls over the years. We certainly added some during our stay.
We were met by Paul, the owner, who showed us around the downstairs and then allowed us the fun of exploring upstairs on our own, delighting in finding all the different nooks and crannies, staircases and bathrooms. What a fantastic house this would be for playing hide and seek, if only we were that young again!
There was a delicious fresh cream home made cake waiting for us in the fridge which we enjoyed with a lovely cup of tea before settling into our chosen bedrooms.
Asda delivered our food and drink for the weekend within the allotted time slot and we all retired to the beautiful living room with it's roaring log fire and chandelier and kicked back to a fabulous evening of chatter and games ( from the games room ) too much food and definitely too much wine :-)
The next day we spent lounging around, some of us enjoying the hot tub on the terrace, some enjoying a game of pool in the library and others taking a pleasant walk down to the local shop to stock up on a few more beers.
The house was toasty warm during our stay and the beds, all of them, extremely comfortable. We had dressing gowns and plentiful towels provided in every room, and could not fault the facilities provided.
The second evening we had a 3 course catered meal provided by Margaret and Paul and 2 waiting staff. We were banned from the kitchen and dining room (such a hardship!) whilst our meal was prepared and the dining table laid ready for service. This was the icing on the cake for us as it meant all of us could really relax and enjoy the celebration without having to cook - bliss. All the dirty dishes were cleared to the dishwasher by our waiter and waitress for the evening, so not even any washing up to do.
Rose Bank was the perfect place for our family occasion, I really hope we get to stay there again one day

“Great house for a large group with kids”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Rosebank was one of very few places we found big enough for our group - 14 adults and 13 children - and there were still a couple of rooms to spare! The kids loved it - great garden with a football goal, swings and slide and a hot tub. Loads of room for the adults to eat and drink, and really nice pub nearby too. Our only criticism would be that we could have done with another umbrella on the terrace to protect us from the unusually hot sunshine! We will be staying again next year.

“Another lovely stay!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We enjoyed another lovely stay at this property, having spent May Bank Holiday 2013 weekend also at the property.

Rose Bank is perfect for a large group with plenty of room. We were a group of 14 adults and 8 children and didn't feel overcrowded in the slightest. There is plenty of bedroom space as well as living space too.

We were extremely lucky that the weather was gorgeous whilst we were away and so we enjoyed the garden and hot tub in the sunshine.

Margaret left a lovely cream cake for us all too. We enjoyed an afternoon at Queenswood Country Park not far away which has a lovely walk, play area and cafe.

Thanks again for a lovely stay. This property is perfect for large groups!

“Great stay in spacious house with large group of friends and lots of children”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Excellent time enjoyed by all.
Margaret kindly put out extra toys for the young children (aswell as cake for the adults and donuts!) whilst the older children loved playing in the grounds and park area.
Everyone enjoyed playing hide and seek in the extremely spacious house - with plenty of space available to relax also.
Rooms were mixed as you would expect of a house this size and this suited our group well, with the children in the attic and smaller rooms at the back of the house. There were 6 great big bedrooms for the grown ups with lovely views onto the grounds.
We will definitely return for a well priced break for a big group of families.
