We went on a sunny winter’s day. The house was closed. There was a charge for entry to the gardens but it is free if you just want to walk in the grounds. There is a parking charge though, based on time. We just had a walk in the grounds- there are paths for some of them, so not too muddy. We walked to a look-out next to a small church which had a good view. A nice day out in the wintry sun!

What we could see looked nice but sadly due to the time of year could only walk round the gardens and the estate. House is closed until next year no and was having work done judging by the scaffolding in place.

Gardens are nicely presented but again due to the weather some paths were shut for protection and so the entry fee seemed a bit steep for a half open attraction.

Estate grounds would offer some good views on a better day but very misty up at the church and couldn't see any of the Lyth Valley on our visit.

Nice coffee shop and homemade cakes etc.

Plenty of pay & display parking which also added to the overall cost.

We could only visit the garden and grounds st the time of our visit, the house was closed for the winter. The garden and grounds were very nice, e certainly got our dtep count in. The cafe food was excellent, as would be expected. The chicken and mustard stew was amazing.

lovely visit to Sizergh with 2 energetic kids (6 and 8). The autumn colours were spectacular with the range of trees, gardens well kept and interested and veg garden lovely. The castle is fascinated and good tea room. Well worth a few hours

We went on a day when the garden was open but not the house, however there was plenty for all three generations. The children loved the trail up and over stiles, through woods etc and there are plenty of paths for dog-walking or just fresh-air.
The cafe had a very good selection of food and drinks and there is both inside and outside seating.
We visited the garden at the perfect time for the Acers, a multitude of colours. I particularly liked the kitchen garden with some flowers amongst the flourishing vegetables.

After an annoying route, to get to the Castle, because you can't turn right across the main road, arrived at the car park, plenty big enough, some tarmac, some just stones.
There is a very nice restaurant on the right, as you walk in, and a shop on the left, with the ticket area.
Prices are reasonable, but check, as the castle isn't open every day.
The grounds are beautiful, especially the Rock Garden, plus there is an amazing perfume, from one of the trees in the garden.
The garden isn't large, but there are plenty of fields you can stroll around, adjacent.
Think you need reasonable weather, but a lovely place,

I must driven past it numerous times whilst working in Cumbria. Now on pension, we decided to actually see it and it's wonderful.
Nice to see a castle not ruined and still lived in by the family going back hundred of years. We went to see the garden too with various aspects of Japanese acer trees and New Zealand fern trees.

We went around the gardens which were beautiful. Great coffee shop which is right next to the car park with a grassy area for picnics. Only downside is the parking if you are not a National Trust member. If you are a member then this is the perfect place to stop for a drink and a stretch of the legs if you are nearby or passing by on the motorway.

Marvellous castle to look around with great gardens. The house is very homely - the family still live there - so each visited room is laid out as they use it. The room stewards were interesting, full of extra facts to bring the rooms alive.
The gardens are lovely too, well maintained. The Rock Garden is much fun if you have children - lots of room for hide and seek, and secret paths.
And the car parking is near the property, rather than miles away, as NT seems to be creating elsewhere. Such extra walking can be difficult for those with less mobility.
