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.
