The grounds and dfferent garden areas are absolutely beautiful, so many unusual things to see everywhere and all really well maintained. My camera worked overtime! The house is stunning and has the feeling of a home not a museum, which is nice. A few of the attendants were a bit over-enthusiastic...sometimes it's good to just look and peruse and think... More

had a lovely look round Sizergh Castle today. Granddaughter aged 18, and I looked round the house while my husband had a long walk with the dog. We have been many times as the family tree show we are related but love looking round the house and gardens.

Lovely gardens with lots of different sections from rock garden to lake and woodland walks and lovely cottage and kitchen gardens. The house tour was very interesting with very informative guides providing a real insight into the varied history of the house. Nice cafe and lots of walks across the estate. A great day out.

The gardens and the outside of the castle are stunning and lovely to walk around. However we were slightly disappointed at how little of the castle you can go around. We realise they still live in parts of the castle but walking past many's doors saying "private" is slightly annoying. They also really try to make you sign up for... More

This place is run by the National Trust -I found all the staff and volunteers to be very polite and knowledgeable. The castle is very interesting, children can fill in an activity sheet to keep their interest. The gardens were very varied and interesting - the volunteer who took us on a guided tour of the gardens was lovely, very... More

The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. Particularly not to be missed are the stumpery, rockery and kitchen garden which has some lovely raised beds. The view of the castle reflected in the lake will appeal to photographers. The castle's interior has many unique and interesting features. Altogether an excellent visit.

We have been members of the National Trust for many years and have had many happy family days out at various places within the UK. We came today as a party of 11 with a picnic and the full expectation of another great day out, despite the rainy weather. How wrong we were. Many of the staff should never be... More

We have visited Sizergh before. The house is lovely. I particularly like the original floorboards where you can see the axe marks in the upstairs dining room. Staff are very knowledgeable. However, the highlight for us this time was the new "Wild Trail" which we did with our 11 year old. Wear sturdy shoes as you will be climbing, balancing,... More

Living close to Sizergh and having visited in the past I decided it was about time for a revisit. I went with a friend and we started with lunch at the cafe.mit was very good and though very busy we didn't have to wait long before being served. The food was very good. We then went on into the house... More
