We usually tend to visit the gardens mainly and like cycling to this venue. (Avoid the dual carriageway if visiting by bike) . The gardens are interesting with a new stumpery, herb garden , small lakes, beehives, chickens, orchard and rock garden. It doesn't take too long to go round the gardens leaving plenty of time to enjoy tea or... More

I actually came here in August 2015 and had a lovely day. Beautiful surroundings and gardens and nice to spend the day on a hot summers day There's a lot of history here and I recommend a visit. A beautiful example of National Trust. Take a picnic and spend all day in the castle and gardens. I would happily visit... More

This is a stunning house set in lovely landscaped grounds. It is lovely to walk around the gardens and the house itself is fascinating. Good cafe provides lunch and younger members of the family could run off energy in the extensive park land. Good day out. Visit Sizergh Farm as well . Interesting and sells some great food in the...

Beautiful grounds and a lovely hall. To walk around here is to taste a slice of perfect English history. The gardens at different times of the year are spectacular.

Everyone in the barn were lovely, helpful and engaging, we left smiling and happy. From there we proceeded to do the bat hunt and on... More

We have reviewed as average to good as we found the limestone rock garden/kitchen garden/lake very beautiful... More

If you want to see Northern England in it's autumnal 'Sunday best' then Sizergh is the place. I was moved to tears, my daughters were speechless.

The gardens have fabulous colour and are well worth a visit. They include the best stumpery I have seen anywhere, also well kept vegetable gardens, orchard and limestone rockery with Autumn colour. Everything was well tended and well labelled. The house, by contrast, was dark and gloomy so much so that we were not inclined to linger. The cafe was... More
