09/01/92 Rosehill House Hotel


Cotton manufacturer's villa, now hotel. Said to be 1856;
altered. Coursed rock-faced sandstone with freestone
dressings, steeply-pitched fishscale slate roofs with blue
crested ridge tiles. Eclectic Gothic style. Irregular
approximately square plan.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 5 unequal bays, strongly asymmetrical,
the 1st and 3rd bays gabled and the latter projected, a square
single-storey porch to the left of this, and in the range to
the right a rectangular bay window at ground floor with a
canted bay on top of it breaking the eaves. Moulded plinth,
bracketed eaves and plain barge-boarded gables. The porch,
which has false gables to front and side with crocketed
finials, has a Tudor-arched window to the front with etched
plate glass, a shield over this, and in the left side a large
Tudor-arched doorway with an elaborate moulded surround
including set-in shafts, carved spandrels, a square hood-mould
with figured stops, and a door with trefoil-headed panels.
All the windows are different: above the porch is a lancet
with a trefoil over it and a brattished gable above; at 1st
floor of the gabled 1st bay, a 2-light mullioned window with
elaborate raised surround including a frieze of quatrefoils;
in the projected gable to the right of the porch, a tall
window at ground floor with raised surround and above this a
stepped 3-light mullioned window with a hood-mould; in the
range to the right, a one-light sashed window at 1st floor
with a hood-mould which has figured stops, and then the tiered
bay windows, both with columnar mullions which have carved
foliated caps (all different), that at ground floor with a
geometrically-panelled parapet and that at 1st floor with
segmental-pointed lights, richly-carved spandrels and frieze,
and a steep polygonal roof with wrought-iron finial including
remains of a weathervane. The roof has 3 chimney stacks, each
with 3 embattled octagonal chimneys.
The left (north) return side, 5 bays in similar style, with 3
gables, has (inter alia) 2 large canted bay windows at ground
floor with blind mouchette tracery to the parapets, and
2-light mullioned windows at 1st floor. Most windows are
sashed without glazing bars.
The right-hand (south) return wall has (inter alia) a tall
2-centred arched stair window with Y-tracery and stained

INTERIOR: encaustic-tiled floor to porch; moulded Tudor arches
to the reception hall (which was formerly a well with a
skylight but now has a C20 ceiling with rooms above); very
elaborate moulded plaster cornices and ceilings in the main
reception rooms on the north side and especially in the dining
room at the south-west corner, which is also panelled; various
marble fireplaces in these rooms; and a staircase with closed
string and mouchette traceried balustrades.
