Standing at the gateway to the Lake District, Sizergh has been home to the Strickland family for over 700 years. The house originated as a pele tower in the fourteenth century and was extended in the sixteenth century and again in the eighteenth century. The garden includes terraces, a lake, a kitchen garden and a rock garden with a National Collection of hardy ferns. The Dutch Garden and Rock Garden have recently been restored. It was given to the National Trust in 1950 but is still lived in by the family.
