First built in the early 1860s, our three bedroomed Miner’s Cottage has been restored and extended with every modern convenience in 2018. Bullnose verandahs wrap around the entrance and bedrooms offering intimate spaces from which to enjoy garden views. Two bedrooms (with a third, including a large ensuite, “Verdure” coming online in Spring 2018), the Chinoiserie and Fornasetti, each with Cultiver linen, woollen Bemboka blankets, feather down Duvets and a pillow menu, offer accommodation for up to four guests (six guests in total, with the further option of a sofa bed). The Miner’s Cottage features the region’s only genuine cedar hot tub for the ultimate relaxation experience… the natural way. Complementary spa refreshments – herbal tea, probiotic kefir, sparkling rose water – are provided.
Acre of Roses is a working micro-flower farm heady with the scent of more than 1500 organically and sustainably grown heritage rose bushes; a 500m2 potager (kitchen and herb garden), a peony patch and an orchard. Our full romantic blooms and heirloom fruits, herbs and vegetables show the true colours of gentle natural agriculture, twisting stems and the occasional spot. As nature intended.
As Acre of Roses is a working farm so there is someone on site 24/7.
Our concierges are very discreet and will ensure your stay is as private and self-contained as you wish.

A well-stocked pantry is the core of any kitchen, so with the assistance of our in-house chef, we have stocked it full of complimentary ingredients ranging from a profusion of organic spices and baking basics to more refined culinary essentials, enabling you to either whip up a simple omelette or create more masterful gourmet delights.
Combine the staples with fresh seasonal produce and herbs from our kitchen potager gardens , or take a meander down to our local Trentham providores and market to stock up on all your dining and wining essentials –then settle in for a serious culinary session. We’ve even catered for those with specific cooking styles and skills as the kitchen boasts an extensive range of professional cooking equipment. And, for those coffee connoisseurs, a commercial coffee machine and grinder grace the centre stage as a Coffee bar (with of course teas ranging from honey spiced chai to herbal blends).
Whether an intimate stay for two or a full group we’ve create a space for you to cook eat and play.
