Gracious, timeless and thoughtful.

Rose Castle has been hosting events for 800 years. It’s what we do best.

Warm Welcome

The hospitality we offer is based on ancient principles of serving the honoured guest. But we use 21st Century methods to provide a truly exceptional experience.

The unique Rose Castle hospitality is inspired by the extraordinary hospitality John and Sarah Snyder experienced living with desert nomads in the Sahara desert, and what Sarah and the team aspire to deliver through the Rose Castle Foundation.

The Rose Castle Foundation team have pioneered a style of intuitive hospitality, with a focus on the pivotal roles of “guest” and “host”. We extend this hospitality to all who visit and stay at the castle. A place of welcome, quite unlike any hotel or conference centre.

Rose is a place that feels genuinely "home from home". It's about the people, the space, and the comfort.

You are the host

Our pre-arrival communications via our bespoke system will collect information about your guests, so that our teams are fully briefed on their wishes before arrival.

We hope to get to know their preferred breakfast cereal or how they like their tea. Do they like a glass of sherry before dinner or a fine malt whiskey afterwards? Dietary requirements, personal schedules, pillow preferences, and transfers; we take the stress out of planning your event.

Expect a level of hospitality quite unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced. Simply sit back and let the show begin.

Food & Drink

Cumbria is well known for its amazing produce. The combination of local farming and foraging means the very finest fresh seasonal ingredients are always available.

Our Head Chef will conjure a wonderful selection, using local produce and food harvested from Rose Castle’s very own vegetable garden. Feast over a formal lunch or exquisite banquet in the State Dining Room, or enjoy afternoon tea in the State Drawing Room. This is your space and time.
