Not the biggest or most impressive house and gardens not a nice day out for the family all the same. House is interesting, the gardens too and they have a shop and cafe which does everything from a coffee to a main meal. A good place to spend 1/2 a day.

Lots of attractions. Which is especially useful for a grandfather with 3 small children. Lots of walks and the house tour was very interesting.

Whenever I have a spare couple of hours (I'm a NT member, so go quite regularly), I take the opportunity of visiting this little gem of a place. Nestled quite close to Kendal, Grange-over-Sands and Milnthorpe, Sizergh Castle is an ideal escape for me. There is something of interest to see in the gardens throughout the year - fritillaries in... More

House was closed but gardens will be pretty in spring/summer. The castle is really rather ornate for defence purposes!

This is a great looking, working castle. We were here at Christmas time and it wasn't open, so can't comment on the inside.

Beautiful garden. Recently replanted. Stunning for anyone who loves plants. Garden not all accessible but mainly. House is fascinating too. Claims to have the bloodstained smock Charles 1 wore for his execution. Nice cafe.

Firstly what little choice there is in the restaurant big let down. My daughter wanted chips and gravy chips were been served in a little metal bucket. The young girl put the chips in the bucket and spooned about 2 tablespoons of gravy in from the sausage and onions on he hot plate! Then I paid £3.75 for a cheese... More

Whilst on holiday in the lakes we arranged to meet our children here who were visiting us for the day. The weather was dreadful, but Sizergh provided us with a great morning. We met in the café which warmed us up with lovely coffee and cake, and then on to the tour. The guides were well informed, plenty of anecdotes... More

Sizergh Castle is a great place for a day out. There are tours of the 'castle' which is really more of a large manor house, wonderful gardens and good food. Dogs have to stay on the (covered) exterior, but they do their best. Sizergh is also a great base for some wonderful walks nearby - try to footpath up to... More
