Mirehouse & Gardens

Mirehouse is a “Manor from Heaven” according to Melvyn Bragg. Set in stunning landscape between mountainside and Bassenthwaite Lake, the gardens include a tranquil walled garden planted for bees, a terraced Poetry Walk and woodland playgrounds. The house has a wealth of unique literary connections – over the years the Spedding family has had close links with Tennyson, Southey and Thomas Carlyle. As visitors wander through this living family home, they enjoy a relaxed welcome, live piano music flowing from room to room and a chance for younger visitors to play in the Victorian nursery or follow the history trail.
