We went on a beautiful day and the gardens were superb and a lovely walk to the lake and also you could walk up the mountain to see a great advantage point
House not open every day. Lovely gardens. Good location with mountain backdrop and woodland near lake. Cafe and toilets across the road from the house, near carpark.
Absolutely loved it, little away from main attraction Keswick, worth spending your day either hiking or wondering around in garden, closely encountering cattle, walking along lake ... all are enough to make your day. However, sat nav try to take you directly into the garden which is not allowed. Remember parking and getting tickets opposite the garden. 😊😊
We went with 8 children aged 3 to 11 And 8 adults various ages. Something for everyone children enjoyed play zones. Adults the gardens and house. All enjoyed picnic and access to lake. The attraction was reasonably priced although the £6.30 car park was expensive. Still highly recommend a visit there for families with multiple age children.
Great place to visit on a nice day with something to do for all the family. House, gardens, tea room, lakeside walks, 4 adventure play areas!
Morehouse is a privately owned manor house with lots to offer. Set up as if it was owned by the National Trust or English Heritage, it has an informative and fun self guided tour around the house with interactive sheets for kids. The grounds themselves are beautiful and the various walks and adventures set off the main path provide great fun for families. All in all a great way to spend a sunny day.
Beautiful place, we didnt visit the house but payed to visit the gardens. Its a wonderfully magical place with surprises around every corner. The entry fee is amazing and we spent a full day here. The walks are fantastic, plenty to see for everyone, we visited with my 2 year old, 14 year old, me and my husband and my 63 year old mother and we all thoroughly annoyed our day. I can't wait to go back.
Wonderful gardens, the 'Walled garden (also called the Bee Garden)' is particularly peaceful. A very nice place to visit. And it doesn't cost a fortune.
Lovely old house with literary connections. Beautiful lawns dropping down to the lakeside. St. Bega's church at the end of a potholed track. Lovely inside. Interesting church organ, apparently its stops have been filched somehow from a huge pipe organ. Could be overwhelming if I'd pulled out all the stops. But I resisted temptation and avoided the bassoon, the chimney pipes and the tremolo!
Great day out, loads to do for the kids, but missed out on looking around the house as it shut at 4pm and we didn't know.
Flowers galore and wonderful colours to be seen from May onwards. A very tranquil place to visit and dont forget the picnic. Also the chapel is worth a visit.
Great for families and groups of friends. Assault course is great, walled garden for the adults is nice. Definitely worthwhile to visit
Beautiful walking. Great cafe. Everything cooked fresh to order.
I adore Mirehouse, it was a pleasure to visit again as last time I went was as a child
