Sizergh Castle, Kendal, Cumbria, National Trust UK
Sizergh castle is a National Trust maintained property on the edge on the lake district in Cumbria North West UK . It is an enjoyable and largely unpretentious place to visit, set within a lush green and verdant landscape. The castle is still inhabited by the Strickland family who have been in residence for over 750 years.
One of my favorite things about Sizergh is the spread and drama created by the Erigeron growing between and into the steps and walls. It lends a sense of mystery and fantasy to the whole place.
Percy the scarecrow
Limestone garden wonderful very oriental feel to this space and full of the most wonderful collection of Acers
I love these weathered and worn limestone steps
Dramatic Rodgersia foliage beside water works so well
Erythronium, Trout Lily
Exquisite combination of Rodgersia, Astilbe, Acers and ferns with water lilies in foreground pond.
Very dramatic use of pathway cut through wild flower meadow
Simple yet elegant oak gates
