Visited on Saturday and the royals and Roundheads day was on, which was interesting. And as we are national trust members we got in for free as I wouldn't have paid the full family price. The castle was shut, the gardens were pretty and the lady said there was an adventure trail which either isn't signposted very well or we... More

This is a lovely venue, very pretty gardens and tea shop. Well worth a visit. There is also a farm shop at Sizergh wich is also worth visiting.

As a national trust member we visit many property's and always enjoy them . but on this visit we were left disappointed . it is not clear that the house would be closed on a Friday and Saturday. When we arrived we showed our cards the national trust assistant was not very helpful and didn't explain anything about the property... More

We went to visit this lovely castle only to find that it is shut on Friday and Saturday. It does say this on the leaflet we found but in such small print we hadn't noticed. However, the gardens were open so we had a walk round them. they were excellent, I got loads of ideas! We'll have to come back... More

Well worth a visit! Easy to find from the A590; good free parking; picnic facilities; good cafe and shop all add to the facility. The gardens were lovely. The house itself is quite extraordinary in that it has a blend of historic realism with a homelike/lived in feel. I particularly appreciated the very friendly, helpful and knowledgable volunteers. I really... More

We visited on a hot, sunny day in June and probably saw the gardens and castle at their most beautiful. The limestone rockery is a joy to wander around as is the house. Even though it was very busy, it was always possible to find somewhere quiet to sit which considering the fact that the grounds are not huge, was... More

An interesting country home, with some varied architecture from c14th-c20th. Grounds are small but well maintained and with good kitchen gardens etc. The building has some very pretty rooms and info is generally good though the detail on the information sheets could be better - there's a focus on object-related trivia, rather than stories about the home's history. Guides were... More

We arrived before the house opened to the public which was wonderful luck - we were able to take a tour of the house with a very knowledgeable docent before the opening time. It was fascinating to hear about the family and the history of the house. The docent had lots of delightful stories about the house. The grounds are... More
