Having driven past Sizergh on numerous occasions heading to the Lakes, we finally called in for coffee and visited the house and grounds too. The cafe is very clean, has good food and great staff. The house is not necessarily one of the National Trust's...More

We spent an enjoyable few hours at Sizergh making the most of some unexpected sunshine. As the house is closed on Mondays we took the outside castle tour. This was well worth us and our tour guide gave us a fascinating insight into the history...More

Beautiful formal gardens festooned with seasonal flowers - not suitable for off lead dog walking either in the gardens nor the wider grounds due to farm animals in the fields. Has an excellent National Trust restuarant to round out your walk with a tasty lunch.

Pretty gardens and nice walks on estate. Good cafe for snacks and plenty parking. Don't allow dogs in cafe, shop or gardens - big mistake. Some outdoor seating for cafe. Gardens are closed some days due to agreement with family owners

Yes: photos are now allowed everywhere inside the House but not with flash. This includes the Inlaid Chamber where photography was formerly forbidden.
