Castle or House

Lovely day out with my wife and friends. We enjoyed the grounds and gardens. It's more a "house" than a castle. Cafe was OK, nice cream tea. Not outrageously expensive.

Good day out with plenty for the little ones to do. The castle is shut on Fridays and Sunday's so bare that in mind when planning your trip. But there is plenty of outdoor things to do. Worth a visit.

This is a lovely property with beautifully decorated rooms and lovely objects on display including Medieval swords etc. The volunteers are particularly helpful, filling in the details. The gardens are superb with a fabulous collection of Acers and a huge vegetable garden well described. well worth a visit even in the rain!

Access to Sizergh Castle off the main road can be a challenge but with care its well signed and easy to follow. Being local living in Kendal we normally visit vie Low Sizergh Barn and cut through under the main road. There is always plenty of paring spaces even at busy times and within easy flat walking distance of the... More

We regularly visit as we live quite near, taking family and visitors of all ages! Good National Trust Cafe, car Parking and nice picnic facility. The rockery and new stumpers are well worth a visit plus a pleasant walk round the lake and garden. We have not visited the inside of the Castle for a very long time.

Unusually for an NT property you don't need to show your membership card until you have parked your car. The car park is used as a base by walkers etc - this is good but it means that the car park can fill up on a nice day. Next to the car park is the cafe and the old barn... More

A fascinating house - the home of the same family for 750 years! The highlight for me in the house was the Inlaid Chamber which we learnt had taken 10 years to complete and had at one stage been sold to the Victoria and Albert Museum - a much travelled room, it was good to see it back where it...

WE live fairly locally and have been visiting Sizergh castle regularly for almost a decade. There is something for everyone. Young children particularly love the rock garden, climbing trees near the lake and rolling down the steep bank in front of the castle. They also love racing round the castle completing quizzes in record time. There is a lovely vegetable... More

Stopped off on the way home from the Lakes. Plenty of NT brollies to borrow so we could enjoy the gardens (note house not open Friday and Saturday's). Kitchen garden was stunning!

A beautiful castle, with lovely gardens. Would highly recommend the visit. An hours drive from Coniston. Went on guided tour, which was very interesting. Has a lovely restaurant also.
