We walked from Kendal to Sizergh. The staff didn't know about buses back, even though the NT has such green credentials, but they were happy to look it up on their computer. The grounds were still beautiful and the cafe very good.

Revisit after 20 yrs! Absolutely terrific building packed with period features, beautiful furniture, artwork and information. Really friendly, helpful staff and super grounds. Took a visiting, well travelled aunt who rated it higher than many other great houses.

Sizergh Castle is set in a lovely Cumbrian location, although perhaps now too close to the dual carriage way re traffic noise. Good parking, great cafe and gift shop, amazing helpful staff, fabulous Castle experience through the ages - wonderful gardens and plenty of good...More

Run by the National Trust the 'house' makes for a very interesting visit. Quite a few walks through the local area starting from the car park with some nice countryside to be seen. Whether visiting the house and gardens or doing one of the local...More
