Opening Dates & Times We open daily in the gardens and playgrounds on 1st April until 31st October 2021, 10 am to 4.30 pm. We look forward to welcoming all our visitors back. The house remains shut for the moment.Please purchase tickets at The Old Sawmill Tearoom across the road. No advance booking needed. 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. When we re-open in the house, it would be open on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons 1.30 pm till 4.30 pm (last entries 4 pm). The grounds at Mirehouse are certainly dog friendly. Dogs are welcome in the grounds (though not in the playgrounds) on a short lead at all times. As the walks pass through farmland, please be aware that it is an offence to allow your pet to bother any livestock. Please give farm animals plenty of space to not feel intimidated. Cows can be curious and should they charge toward you, drop your dog lead and run to safetly. You pet will be able to outrun any danger by itself. Be especially vigilant around livestock.
