Sizergh Castle Garden

(See also Sizergh Castle)

Sizergh Castle Garden by Tony RichardSizergh Castle's 14 acres of gardens were first laid out in the 18th century. They feature a noted limestone rock garden (added in 1926 by an Ambleside firm), a lake, wildflower garden, water garden, and a rose garden. Bulbs and herbaceous borders add colour.

The garden includes part of the National collection of Hardy Ferns. A southern, walled exposure provides a mini climate for such plants as a Brown Turkey fig. Walks lead through ancient woodlands and butterfly loving pastures with views over the fells.Sizergh Castle Garden by Tony Richard
