Discover the house - Re-opening 21 March 2020
The house is now closed for the winter season, due to re-open 21 March 2020.
Sizergh (sy-zer), is an ancient Scandinavian name meaning ‘summer pasture or dairy farm’.
A medieval castle, gateway to the Lake District, and family home. Which remains lived in to this day by the Strickland family.
Uncover the story of the family, who have lived at Sizergh for over 700 years.
You’ll come across Strickland family portraits as you make your journey through the whole property. A treasured collection painted by Cumbrian born George Romney – the most fashionable artist of his day.
Don’t miss the Elizabethan inlaid Chamber, made with pale poplar and dark bog-oak, inlaid with floral and geometric patterns - one of the finest panelled rooms in England and the jewel in Sizergh’s crown.
You’ll also get up close to rare Jacobite relics, intricate fine carved oak panelling and the impressive Catholic Royal Stuart portrait collection – a stunning curation which hangs in the family dining room.
