We arrived early in time for the house tour, £1 each extra, prior to the opening of the house at 12.00 noon. The most disjointed National Trust property we have visited. Everything seemed to be an addition to the original building. However, it was very interesting listening to the tour guide. We have passed the Castle on a number of... More

This famous Castle has lots of well furnished interesting rooms. Stewards on duty in many of the rooms are all amazingly knowledgeable about the castle and are very willing to answer any questions. The Rock Garden is also well worth a visit. Good café. Convenient car parking.

Various different kinds of little gardens, woods, saw quite a few people with bikes so presume your able to take them in the woods and grounds.... More

What a beautiful place to visit, especially as the weather is so good. We had a spare couple of hours and decided to visit Sizergh Castle. There is so much to see, numerous walks within the castle grounds, look for the sign posts, some interesting wood carvings in the ground , some amazing plant life and a variety of insects... More

1st time visit to Sizergh Castle and loved it. Only really found it via the national trust literature. The gardens are a joy with plenty of places to sit and take in the gardens. Would definitely recommend a visit.

The volunteers were really lovely and helpful. But to be honest, I enjoyed the visit to the rock garden more than the castle.

We visited Sizergh with our two kids (4years old and 6 weeks), after a previous visit. The wild play trail was a hit with mum and dad as well as the 4 year old, Dad even managed it with the 6 week old in a front baby carrier. The 4 year old loved the dressing up in the barn (which... More

Visited Sizergh on Saturday 30th August with family whilst staying in Cumbria. Very impressed with the grounds, the walks on offer and the superb cafe. The adventure trail was great fun for the whole family from grandparents to kids (and dog!) We didn't check beforehand and found that the house itself is closed on Fridays and Saturdays - this is...

This is a lovely place to visit, the house is interesting as is the garden and everything is fairly close together so there isn't too much walking. Plenty of outdoor and indoor sating at the cafe and a wellstocked and varied gift shop. For those with limited ability there are plenty of seats and benches outside.

Visited here last week and was lucky enough to catch a free garden tour which was well worth it to hear some history and context of the house as well as see the garden. The gardens are not huge but were interesting and the rock garden was surprisingly beautiful. The house is well staffed by eager guides who enthusiastically tell... More
