Beautiful medieval house, with rich gardens and estate
This imposing house stands proud at the gateway to the Lake District.
Its rich and beautiful garden includes a pond, lake, a national collection of hardy ferns and a superb limestone rock garden.
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.
The exceptional wood panelling culminates in the Inlaid Chamber, returned here in 1999 from the Victoria and Albert Museum. The 647-hectare (1,600-acre) estate includes limestone pasture, orchards and semi-natural woodland.
Sizergh has a fantastic range of events over the year for all the family. Take a look at our events page for more details.

New life at Park End Moss
The creation of a new wetland area in the Lyth Valley has breathed new wildlife into Park End Moss.
The site is now open to visitors with the installation of a brand new bird hide built with timber from the estate by the local National Trust Ranger team.
We're excited to announce a new addition to our collection of National Trust Holiday Cottages - 3 Courtyard Cottage is located at the heart of the Sizergh Estate.
Sleeping six, the cottage has been renovated to a high spec and forms part of the courtyard which was once the stables.
