Castle itself was closed but we had visited to have a refreshing walk. The weather was dry but chilly. We walked around the gardens, the fungi on the branches in the fern garden was very interesting. The swans were looking at home on the pond and it was good to see the garden in winter as last time we visited... More

Visited this lovely house and gardens but the Lakeland weather was against us! We tried to appreciate the vistas and the excellent trees and shrubs and the plentiful wild life but eventually scurried into the welcoming tearooms. I chose quiche and salad - quiche was warm and fresh a good sign, followed by coffee and cheesecake from the wide snack... More

We visited in January 2017, we walked round the gardens, water feature and the pond which took all of 30mins. The castle was closed, presumably for repairs during the down season. £7.50 each for what was a 30 minute walk seemed a little steep. Probably best to come in spring/summer and maybe they should discount the entrance fee during the... More

Definitely one of those places you are glad you've visited....wonderful grounds with lakes, walled gardens, orchards and bee hives. The castle itself was immense, steeped in history - one of those places with an impressive great hall and you know every other room is going to be equally as impressive. If you want a breathtaking experience, make sure you climb... More

Just wanted to say what a truly magical experience we had visiting Santa in his beautiful barn at Sizergh Castle this weekend. Santa himself had all 4 boys mesmerised, especially with his link back to the North Pole as he talked them through the "magic" of how he manages to get round the world with the presents. They were visibly... More

We live relatively close by and are members of the National Trust so visit often, though not always the house. Beautiful grounds with interesting plants and trees. We often take a picnic.
