The gardens and property are not overly large, but nice to wander around without feeling you've had enough. Regularly brought the family here when the kids were younger using our National Trust membership, and we still visit from time to time for a change even...More

The gardens were the only bit open but it was still a lovely visit. Easily manageable by my elderly mum, but my husband still managed to take the dog on a decent walk. Nice cafe on site too. Parking was pricey for a garden only...More

Called for lunch and enjoyed it as we have done in the past. Very popular as there are a number of signposted walks from this location. Well worth a visit in glorious countryside, with our without a walk.

Looking at a garden on a dull, foggy late December day and thinking it’s fantastic has to be the best compliment I can give. The standards of maintenance at Sizergh garden are superb. Mulched, labelled, cared for and already showing signs of promise, the rock...More
