Welcome WelcomeTHE GARDENS AND PLAYGROUNDS AT MIREHOUSE ARE OPEN DAILY FROM 1ST OF APRIL UNTIL 31ST OCTOBER 2021. ADVANCE BOOKING NOT NECESSARY. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING ALL OUR VISITORS BACK.THE HOUSE REMAINS SHUT FOR THE MOMENT. Fortunately we have plenty of space in the gardens and along the lakeside walk so adhering to social distancing should be quite simple for our visitors. However, if we do feel the site is getting too busy, we will operate a one out one in policy immediately. Set in the heart of the North Lake District, three miles from Keswick, the beautiful, natural gardens at Mirehouse offer stunning views of the dramatic Lakeland landscape they are set in. Enjoy the tranquility of the walled Bee Garden, stroll in quiet contemplation along the Poetry Walk or sit by the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake.When we re-open in the house, a relaxed welcome, enhanced by its unique literary connections and beautiful collections, await visitors to Mirehouse. Visitors can enjoy the live piano music, unusual photographs and manuscripts and children’s activities as they wander through this family home.
