When we visited they were holding a Roundheads event, period costumes, tools and even some sword-fighting demos - well done and a great atmosphere.

Although this property is not all open to the public, it is a lovely place and well worth visiting. The staff are particularly friendly and informative. It feels like a castle that has been turned into a house. The grounds are amazing as well.

Set in some beautifully presented grounds the Castle has some gorgeous interiors which you can photograph without flash. Easy to get to and really worth a visit, the Strickland Arms pub just outside the grounds serves a couple of real ales and is worth a visit as well.

We went here on our recent Lake District holiday and had a great time. We intended only to go for a few hours but our 2 young boys (4 and 7) enjoyed it so much we stayed all day. The Nature trail in particular was a big favourite - so much so we went round it twice. The gardens are... More

Stopped at this Castle on a whim and turned out to be a great visit. Parking is free and admission is at a reasonable price with options was castle and gardens or just the gardens. The castle is nice to go through with plenty of national trust volunteers ready to help with information. The grounds are equally impressive and make... More

This is our second visit to Sizergh, this time without the kiddywinks. However it must be said that children are very, very welcome at Sizergh and the National Trust do provide lots of activities both in the house and grounds for children. There is a lovely visitor center in the car park (National Trust do not charge non members for... More
