Sizergh Castle and Garden is a stately home and garden at Helsington Wikipedia Icon in the English county of Cumbria, about 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Kendal Wikipedia Icon. The castle, a grade I listed building, is in the care of the National Trust along with its garden and estate. It is the home of the Hornyold-Strickland family.

In 2016 the Sizergh estate was included in the newly extended Lake District National Park Wikipedia Icon.

The earliest part of the building is a tower of fourteenth or fifteenth century date.

It was extended in Elizabethan times. Around 1770, the great hall was again expanded in the Georgian style.


The garden has a lake and a kitchen garden as well as an award-winning rock garden. The rock garden, which was constructed in the 1920s, is the largest limestone rock garden belonging to the National Trust. It includes part of the National Collection of hardy ferns.
