We generally love National Trust visits and are keen members but we would have been very disappointed if we had paid an entry fee. This was one of the poorest NT experiences we’ve had for some time. There was very little interaction from the volunteers...More

Lovely day out, a good dog walk around the grounds but be wary of the sheep as they have all recently lambed. The only thing I would like the national trust to improve on is its recycling facilities. C’mon guys, you are better than that.

Sizergh is unusual for the NT in the Lake District. It is a large house with a decent car park, shop and large restaurant and is located just off a main road. The castle itself is very interesting with some impressive show rooms despite the...More
