April - October Call Us Email Us


We are now closed for our 2021 season.  We plan to re-open in the grounds and playgrounds daily from 1st April until 31st October 2022, 10 am to 4.30 pm.  

Tickets to be bought at The Old Sawmill Tearoom in Dodd Wood car park. No advance booking needed.  Parking and toilets for Mirehouse & Gardens are at Dodd Wood Pay on Exit car park opposite the main entrance. 

The house will re-open on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons (1.30 pm till 4.30 pm) from 1st April 2022 until the end of October 2022.  For the safety of our visitors and staff, mask wearing will be required when visiting the house (unless exempt).  Thank you for your co-operation and we look forward to welcoming our visitors back

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.

House and gardens:

Details of disability access to Mirehouse and its gardens are available upon request at the tearoom.  The house is fully accessible for wheelchairs and disabled access parking is available in front of the house.    

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 give farm animals plenty of space to not feel intimidated.  Please see the Countryside Code for more information. 

Mirehouse is a member of the Historic Houses and Cumbria's Living Heritage.  Also, Sandhills B&B nearby is highly recommended.
