Winter fun at Sizergh

Explore Sizergh this winter 

Winter is all about exploring, so come along and enjoy frosty rambles around the Sizergh estate, and blow away the cobwebs with a refreshing walk around the Sizergh garden. After this why not treat yourself to healthy light bites in the Sizergh café, a perfect way to enjoy guilt free eating pleasure during the winter season!

Snowdrops

A garden for every season 

Winter is here in the Sizergh garden. Hellebores in shades of pinks, greens and whites, some double, some mottled, are a delight to see and the gardeners begin planning what they will grow in the year ahead.
