Just to get the rant out if the way, I thought places like this were given to the nation in lieu of tax or to ease consciences?? I was very annoyed therefore to find I wasn't allowed in the property till 12.00 to allow for the comfort and privacy of the family who were "in residence" that weekend! Fortunately the... More

Very interesting. We did the free flow tour which was great, we used the kids quiz to keep our seven year old interested. Gardens were lovely. Staff very helpful. We didn't eat in the cafe but it looked great and very popular. The Wild Trail outside for children was really good and a highlight for our kids. Probably the best... More

This is a lovely place to visit, the castle is very interesting and the gardens are very nice indeed. Went into the walled garden and they sell plants and produce, I bought some courgettes and they were delicious. We also had coffee and a scone in the cafe, this was very nice, overall and really lovely day.

First visit last week. Easy to find and plenty of parking close to entrance, facilities and castle (I'm not too mobile on my pegs these days). Warm welcome from guy of mature years at the entrance area. Easy access to castle (which we covered slowly but thoroughly). Lots of visitors but never too crowded. Fascinating visit, followed by a gentle... More

A beautiful day out here looking around a lovely castle, the children enjoyed discovering history here and outside the gardens were superb with a fabulous display of colored acer trees and limestone steps and rockery. The children enjoyed running around here playing hide and seek. After a picnic lunch with tables and benches at our disposal we ventured around the... More

Had a lovely visit to Sizergh even on a very wet day. All the staff and volunteers were lovely and you got a real sense that they enjoyed being there. Having visited Holker Hall recently near Grange-over-Sands, I would say I preferred the gardens at Sizergh. They are more magical! And the kitchen garden is lovely! Definitely worth a visit,...

We spent a few hours here on our way home from the Lake District. The garden was very interesting and we enjoyed an hour or so walking around it. The restaurant was excellent - delicious home cooked food at reasonable prices. The National Trust shop was also very good. Very happy to recommend this for a half day visit.

This is a really interesting house and garden. Parts of the house are locked in a Tudor time warp. Although, I’m not into wooden paneling these are fantastic features of much of the house. The house has been added to as times and fashions changed (and when money allowed). The gardens are constantly being remodeled or revamped and we went... More
