A591 opens again and re-joins Grasmere and Keswick

We have had a major boost to the area last week with the reopening of the flood-damaged A591, which has re-linked the areas of Grasmere and Keswick.  


In December, 18 separate landslides after Storm Desmond wreaked devastation on the area and a cavernous hole opened up in the A591 between Dunmail Raise and Thirlmere.


For more than five months since then the Lake District has been effectively split in two. People who needed to travel between Grasmere and Keswick have had to make an 80-mile detour via Penrith. Thousands of tonnes of rubble have been cleared the road repaired and Cumbria and the LakeDistrict is now officially back in action!  

Rosemount Guest House has remained open throughout, but we are delighted that the A591 is re-opened so that we can all easily access areas north of Grasmere and that local businesses effected can start to thrive again.

We would like to introduce you to Emilia Frances Jones who was born on the 30th September 2011 at 1:53am weighing in at 8lb 7oz. Both Emilia and Louise are doing well and are safely back at Rosemount. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our guests for their understanding and co-operation over the past week. Hopefully we will see you all again on another occasion and be able to spend more time with you.

Rosemount is open & the new look rooms are going down a treat!

We've been open for 3 weeks now and everything's going really well, we've had some lovely feedback and our guests are loving the new en suites, particularly the fabulously deep Villeroy & Boch baths.

The weather's been gorgeous and the lakes are looking stunning, Bowness has had a lovely summery atmosphere with everyone making the most of the sun. 

On departure lots of our guests look like they've had a weekend in the med not Windermere!

Refurbishment work on track for March re-opening

After 7 weeks of stripping, plastering, papering and tiling, tiling, and yet more tiling, Rosemount Guest House is almost ready to emerge as a beautiful butterfly.  As family run bed & breakfasts go, we think it's going to probably be one of the best! 

We've been blessed with good weather and great team of people working with us and we're on track to re-open in the 3rd week of March.

All the double rooms and public areas have been completely refurbished...Villeroy & Boch bathrooms to die for, stunning archive print walllpapers from Cole & Son, soft Farrow & Ball paint colours, luxurious natural fabrics...we are so excited to share it with you!

Our hope is that the end result is authentic & yet contemporary, stylish and yet inviting, but also tat it keeps it's warm & friendly feel that so many people have commented on over the last 2 years.

All photography on this website will be updated in March and we'll be re-launching with some exciting new offers. Please sign up for our newsletter if you'd like more details. 

We can't wait to see you at the new & improved Rosemount Guest House, Windermere!
