Welcome to Sizergh
On the edge of the Lake District, the 1,600-acre Sizergh estate is amazingly varied with limestone pastures, orchards, wetlands and semi-natural woodland, inhabited by a rich and diverse wildlife, including the rare hawfinch.
A family home
With more than 700 years of history and centuries-old portraits sitting alongside modern family photographs, this medieval house certainly feels lived in; indeed it's still home to the Strickland family.
It's surrounded by rich gardens including a limestone rock garden, where colours change with the passing of the seasons; its timeless atmosphere makes this the perfect place to relax.
Getting out and about
The estate offers plenty of options for walks, runs or cycle rides.
Some highlights include the route along the river Kent, with the dramatic old gunpowder works, or the walk to Sizergh Fell, which in the autumn provides the ideal viewpoint from where to admire the beautiful woodland colours and the snow-covered Lakeland fells.
For a chance to spot a deer, the stroll to Brigsteer Woods is perfect. The wild play trail at Sizergh gives children an excuse to explore and play in the woods.
With a great variety of things to do and enjoy, and many tales to tell, Sizergh is just waiting to be discovered!
