Opening Dates & Times We are now closed for the season. We look forward to welcoming all our visitors when we re-open for our 2019 season from 1st April until 31st October. The Old Sawmill Tearoom will open for February half term (Saturday 16th February 2019).The gardens, playgrounds and lakeside walks are open daily from 10:00am to 5:00pm. The Old Sawmill Tearoom too is open daily from 10:00am to 5:00pm.The house is open for visitors from 1:30pm to 4:30pm (last entries 4:00pm) on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The grounds at Mirehouse are certainly dog friendly. Dogs are welcome in the grounds on a short lead at all times. Just be aware, it is an offence to allow your pet to bother any livestock. Please keep your dog on a lead and give farm animals plenty of space not to feel intimidated. Cows on the other hand may be more curious, but should they charge toward you, drop your dog lead and run to safety. Your pet will be able to outrun any danger by itself. Be especially vigilant around livestock.
