Mirehouse & Gardens

Attraction in Cumbria

Mirehouse & Gardens

A relaxed welcome, enhanced by it’s 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. 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. Visitors often say ‘We could live here.’ The live piano music contributes to the relaxed atmosphere. Children are actively welcomed. There is an owl hunt for the younger ones, a history quiz for the slightly older and many things for them to find and do. Many children return again and again. Members of the family are usually here to welcome and help look after visitors.

Author's Review

There are attractions that you know about and there are those that you don’t, that all changed when you invested your time and effort in Top 100 Attractions. Take Mirehouse and Gardens for instance, this historic house on the fringes of Keswick is one of Cumbrias biggest hidden gems. Hundreds of years worth of history is what awaits you and no visit is complete without taking a walk around their grounds and gardens. It is worth noting however, that the house is only open three hours in the afternoon and last admission is at 4pm, so any visit to Mirehouse & Gardens has to be planned properly. It would be my advice to see the house first and then the gardens, just to make sure that your not looking at your watch halfway around the house. All in all I absolutely love Mirehouse and I know you will too!
