Rosehill House was built in 1856, for a wealthy cotton mill owner Adam Dugdale. The house went through several changes of ownership, including the mayor of Burnley, Mr Sam Taylor, and was also occupied by the home guard during the Second World War. Rosehill House was then converted into a hotel in 1963. Many of the elaborate features of the original decor have been retained, including a number of beautifully ornate ceilings, which give the hotel a unique charm and character.
It was passion that drove us to restore this 19th century Victorian manor house back to a thriving Hotel 25 years ago and it still remains in the Doherty family to this day. Rosehill House has become a home again, a place that looks and feels as if it belongs and is loved by somebody.
The stunning original features still remain intact, whether it is gold leaf ceilings or the Italian fireplaces or the stained glass windows, the stunning interior is perfectly complimented by the historical and architectural features that this property boasts, creating a truly unique ambiance and charm.
The Rosehill enjoys an enviable reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and friendly team. The ideal place to relax and to be looked after. Our aim is that your stay be as pleasurable as possible.
