Rosings Park is the palatial estate of the de Bourgh family, and located in Kent, near Hunsford Parsonage (the house that Lady Catherine bequeathed to Mr. Collins).


Rosings is a large, handsome modern building, with a nice park. Mr. Collins also stated that the windows at the front of the house as well as the glazing had cost Sir Lewis a pretty sum. The entrance hall was finely-proportioned with finished ornaments, and off the hall was an anti-chamber.

Sir William Lucas, who had been presented at St. James's Palace in London, was in awe of Rosings even though he had seen the palace[1]. However, when Elizabeth compared Pemberley with Rosings, she noted that the latter was opulent while the former was truly elegant, and the latter actually had some impressions of gaudiness.


Anne de Bourgh, the sickly daughter of Sir Lewis and Lady Catherine, is the heiress of the estate, as they 'never saw fit to entail the land'[1].
