As we were staying in the Lake District we decided to visit as we have National Trust membership, it was an overcast day but we enjoyed our visit especially walking around the gardens and the Autumn Colours were lovely.

It is heartening that the family who owned this splendid castle for hundreds of years, and gave it to the National Trust in 1950, are still living there. Both house and garden are magnificent. It is clear that the a Trust are taking good care...More

We went to Sizergh today and thoroughly enjoyed it- wonderful time of year to visit as the autumn leaves are on the trees, including the acers which looked fabulous. I do agree with comments that it is a little expensive to visit the house and...More
