This imposing house, at the gateway to the Lake District, stands proud in a rich and beautiful garden, which includes a pond, lake, national collections 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. Admire some of England's finest Elizabethan wood carving and panelling. Relax in the National Trusts largest limestone rock garden or view the kitchen garden, orchard and herbaceous borders. Guided walks, garden trail and walking leaflet available. Tel: 01539 560951
