Description

Sizergh Castle, Kendal

The Strickland family has lived at Sizergh for more than 750 years, and it remains their home today. Set in large, beautifully landscaped gardens and based on an impressive 14th Century solar tower, Sizergh was extended in Tudor times. While a subject of much historical debate, the 14th century four story structure has been identified as a Solar Tower, not a pele tower as previously believed. The romantic fortified mansion contains some of the finest Elizabethan carved overmantels in the country, as well as a collection of good English and French furniture and family portraits. Of particular interest are the large gardens surrounding the Castle, a notable feature being the National Trust’s largest limestone rock garden, including part of the National Collection of Hardy Ferns. Enchanting wildflower and water gardens also add to the charm of this elegant estate.
