"Sizergh Castle" Lake District National Park Things to Do Tip by zuriga
Lake District National Park Things to Do: 245 reviews and 501 photos
I don't know if I would call this stately home a 'castle,' but it was an interesting National Trust site to visit near Kendal in the Lake District. The gardens were very pretty, especially a huge field of daffodils (late April). At the back of the house is a large pond and beautiful views of the property. The construction of the first part of the 'castle,' was started in medieval times.
Still lived in by the Strickland family, Sizergh has many tales to tell and certainly feels lived in, with centuries-old portraits and fine furniture sitting alongside modern family photographs. There's a nice NT cafe and gift shop.
If you arrive early, there are tickets available for a personal tour at 12, but they go quickly starting at about 10 a.m.
